Dr. Conrad Murray: 'I'm Hanging On by a Thread'

4/1/2010 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray: 'I'm Hanging On by a Thread'Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyer filed legal papers today pleading with the judge in his criminal case not to yank his medical license, because he needs it to pay for his defense.

Murray's lawyers are responding to the State Attorney General's motion, asking the judge to suspend his medical license as a condition to bail.

Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, says his client was in financial hot water before Michael Jackson's death and is now, "without fear of overstatement, hanging on by a thread."

Murray believes if the judge suspends his license, Texas and Nevada will follow suit and the doctor won't be able to make the money required to mount a defense. We're now told Chernoff will be earning some sort of fee, and Murray is also responsible for expert witness fees and other trial-related expenses.

Did you think we Michael's family of fans & family would be Speechless Conrad? Listen close to the constant blowing wind around you. That scream you hear from souls is millions of voices crying out as one because you murdered a son, a father, a brother, a family member, the King of Pop, a healer of this world, a fighter for L.O.V.E., a fighter for the weak, the unaccepted & a fighter for justice! YOU left our world darker, colder, more fearful & with less music. I hope the sounds of those crying voices around the world haunts you each & every second, each moment of every day of your beyond sad conscious life.

I adored Michael Jackson, and this "Doctor" decided to practice medicine based on "$$$$" instead of common sense. Michael did not have to die, Conrad did not even have the medication he needed to reverse any effects this dangerous drug could cause when used improperly. So Mr. Murray, don't try to get sympathy from a world that still thinks of Michael Jacksona and his children everyday.

Why aren't you haters paying Joe Jackson's legal bills? Conrad Murray is a credit to his race and a great humanitarian.

justice is mine says the lord    

I am so sick of this guy, he brings SHAME on the profession of Doctor. How dare he even have the NERVE to call himself DOCTOR!
If the AMA stands behind this fool then THEY should all have their liscenses called into question. Jerry Brown may be doing all this for publicity, but its the RIGHT thing! The LAPD or whoever it is that comes up with WHAT TO CHARGE got it WRONG! It should be MURDER not manslaughter. He KNEW beyond a resonable doubt that the medication he had already administered to MJ was more than enough to cause his death, and if he had not added the LARGER THAN REPORTED dose of DIPRIVAN Michael Jackson would have had a fighting chance. To top it off, he DID NOT TELL THE PARAMEDICS or even the ER docs what he had administered to MJ. THAT WAS OUT AND OUT MURDER. As I have said from day one...."IF THIS WAS ANYONE OTHER THAN MICHAEL JACKSON WHO DIED, THIS FOOL WOULD HAVE BEEN CHARGED WITH FIRST DEGREE MURDER." maybe he will do us all a favor and just off himself before he gets in front of a judge and tries to lie again.

Hey Doc! The court will be happy to provide you with a Public Defender! That's what happens when you have no money! Why should you be better than anyone else who is charged with a major crime?

89. GUESS HE SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE COMMITTING MALPRACTICE & MURDER!!! MURRAY, CAN U SAY, DO YOU WANT FRIES WITH THAT??

HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE & LEAVE ORPHANED CHILDREN BEFORE HIS LICENSE IS PULLED?

HE ABUSED THE PRIVLEDGE OF BEING CALLED M.D!

Yeah!! Really!!! Ain't that the truth!!!!

You know, I’d kind’a feel sorry for Murray, except for the fact that if it had been me, who accidentally killed Michael Jackson....I'd be in jail, if not dead by now!!!
Why is he still able to let his request be known?????? I don't understand any of this!!!!!

Hang in there Dr. Murray. God's back your back covered. I loved MJ, but it certainly is not your fault he died, it would have happened sooner or later. You'll get through this, write a book make a movie.

Failing to diagnose a condition can result in death especially the heart or unwilling to practice medicine reasonably within the usual and customary acceptable treatment standard for any medical condition can cause death yet Dr. Murray disagrees and has openly told the entire medical profession the treatment he gave to Jackson should not result in death.

Dr Murray I feel nothing but contempt for you and I'm struggling to understand why you should keep your licences to practice medicine. Michael Jackson died whilst in your care because of your lack of ethics, incompetency and your total disregard for human life. If you can treat our beloved Michael in such a demeaning manner – what hope is there for anyone else. Do yourself a favour and let MJs fans deal with you (cost to you - no charge). No sympathy from me.
