Conrad Murray -- I Tried Saving Michael Jackson

3/22/2010 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray claims he was honest with paramedics the day Michael Jackson died and did everything he could to save Jackson's life.

Conrad Murray and Michael Jackson

Dr. Murray is responding to a story which cites a paramedic report, claiming Dr. Murray never told the EMTs he administered Propofol to the singer just before he stopped breathing.

The rep for Dr. Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff tells TMZ, "We are currently in receipt of almost 2800 pages of discovery from the Los Angeles prosecutors and we have been assured that more is coming. What we have does not include this 'official' paramedics report, cited in the News of the World story."

The rep says Dr. Murray will not address the accusation -- at least not now -- because Chernoff hasn't seen the report.

The rep is quick to add, "We can say unequivocally that Dr. Murray did everything in his power to save Michael Jackson's life and that he fully cooperated with both the paramedics at the scene and physicians at UCLA Medical Center."

Dr. Murray unequivocally did everything in his power to save Michael Jackson's life? Uequivocally? That's a pretty strong word. Makes me wonder some things...

So, it wasnt in Dr. Murray's power to administer CPR in accordance to how it is supposed to be done?

It wasnt in Dr. Murray's power to adhere to the oath he took as a doctor and do no harm?

It wasnt in Dr. Murray's power to say no to his patient that was asking for a drug that he had no business of receiving for a sleep aid?

It wasnt in Dr. Murray's power to properly monitor the patient that he gave a drug that is well known to depress the respitory system?

It wasnt in Dr. Murray's power to do the right thing, and say "No, I will not give you propofol" and get his patient the help he obviously needed, rather than add to the problem?

It wasnt in Dr. Murray's power to fully disclose everything that he gave to his unresponsive patient to the EMTs? (allegedly, considering NoTW isnt the most accurate news source)

I'm pretty sure that the powers that Murray does have is easily changed with dollar signs. I'm sad Michael Jackson was his victim and all, but what really disturbs me is if this had been a non-celebrity, regular joe with enough money, he'd be out there doing this and never get caught. We need to trust that the people that have the access to meds and the ability to treat illnesses will not compromise the right thing for a paycheck. Strip Murray of his creditials, give him more than 4 years in a regular jail (at the very minimum, the full four years, make him pay in civil court, and make him the example to other doctors.

Jacko WAS wacko    

WACKO JACKO fans are just looking for a scapegoat. WACKO JACKO's behavior and ultimately his death were his own fault. All Michael jackson needed to do is look at the "man in the mirror" if he wanted someone to blame for his issues.

5. JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL!!!!!!!

-----------------------------------------
Justice for all the little boys who's life he destroyed by molesting them!!!! There are many many kids this Pedo destroyed but because he was MJ he got off. There are too many accusations for you to just brush off as people who were "out to get him" this guy had the best cover a Pedo could want. His whole "I never had a childhood" excuse was the best way for him to surround himself with kids. There are millions of kids that were robbed of their childhoods for various reasons and still grew up normal. Think of all the kids that work in sweat shops or had to quit school early for economic reasons and never acted like children as adults. They got over it and moved on with life, but not MJ oh no. This guy says he was robbed of his childhood and then proceeded to rob many other kids of theirs. Even if he was robbed of his childhood how long do you think a person should take to make up for it? No one is a kid for 20 plus years. Face it he was genius as well as a pedophile. I'm GLAD he's dead, good riddance to bad rubbish. You'd probably be one of those people that'd sacrifice your child to the monster just so you could be near him. The parents of these kids should go to hell for feeding this beast with their children’s innocence

Big deal. It's not like Murray killed a pop star that still has a career like Madonna. Michael Jackson's career ended in the 80's. he hadn't had a hit record or song in decades. No big loss in the world of pop music.
