Joe Jackson

'Horrified'

at Dr. Murray Defense

4/4/2010 3:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's father says he is "horrified" by the prospect Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team will argue that Michael Jackson accidentally killed himself by pumping a lethal dose of Propofol into his body.

TMZ broke the story that the defense believes Jackson woke up shortly before noon on the day he died, when Dr. Conrad Murray stepped out of the room, and injected enough Propofol in himself to almost immediately stop his heart.

Joe Jackson tells TMZ, "I don't believe it. It's not true. Why would he [Dr. Murray] hide all the bottles if such a story were true?"

Joe Jackson added, "The Coroner's report shows the story is not true," adding, "This really upsets me to hear this."

Joe Jackson plans to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Murray. While Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, says, "His [Dr. Murray's] story is medically inconsistent with the autopsy findings, he says before knowing for sure, "I would need to see the photographs of the scene in order to assess his story."

MJ did not kill himself! You can not self inject propofol,a person is out within seconds! Murray screwed up now he needs to step up and take responsibility for what he did!

Joe--> Don't worry. This defense is absurd. You cannot inject an anesthetic into your self - you would be out in seconds and not be able to complete the task. Doctors will poke gaping holes in this man's defense. It's absurd. Just know that it was the ONLY defense they could come up with. They are desperate and grasping at straws. We all know the truth. And, we all love and miss Michael. Be patient. It will all be correct in the end.

I don't know how many people are interested in what Joe Jackson has to say, I sure am not!!This man is a money-grubbing, whoremongering, child-beating monster!! He probably contributed more to Michael's death than Conrad Murray. Michael could have been helped and there would have been no need for Murray, if both he and his pretend-to-be-innocent wife took care of his needs when they had complete control over him! I hope both Joe and Murray burn in hell!!

Joe Jackson is an illiterate &%^* who Michael shut out of his life in his last years!!

Keep up the hoax as long as possible Mj is alive and well! There is no conclusive evidence that he did die ! No solid evidence and to many blunders and mysteries in this whole story. Also millions or possibly billions of dollars are to be made on this....

I can not even believe that this quack Doctor is gonna try and say MJ klled himself.
If you have a IV in your arm there is NO WAY he could of drawn up the medication into syringe, he would have to moniver his arm to be able to use the leverage to push the rest of the medication in.
The dam bottle was on the floor becasue Murry quack dropped it and never realized ir or picked it up.

INNONCENT DOCTORS DO NOT HIDE MEDICATION and TRY TO COVER UP the CRIME SCENE.

MURRY IS QUACK WHO KILLED MJ, and then took off.

I'll just BET the lawyer for Joe wants to see the photographs from the scene. And then those photos of the scene along with photos of a dead Michael will wind up in the tabloids for a pretty penny.

ugh    

Gosh get those kids away from that family. When Katherine dies it will be a Jackson fight to see who get the millions, I mean the kids. Nice that the kids are supporting this entire family...

It doesn't matter if Jackson adminstered the fatal dose...if an IV was running and he increased it. Those meds shouldn't have been used at his home, and for whatever reason Murray is given for having them he shouldn't left Jackson and addict in reach of them. He does have a responsiblity for securing those drugs...

Murray you are only going to do a year or two... do the time and come out an write a book. Make lots of money for killing a child molestor.

I like and believe Joe Jackson. He is not money grabbing and I think he truly loves his son! Whatever happened years ago between he and Michael isn't good. That was long ago and Michael forgave his father. Joe is very intelligent and has insight into this case that shouldn't be overlooked..On your side Joe Jackson and Brian Oxman..Find the true culprits that are making a ton of money from Michael Jackson's death..If Conrad Murray cared for Michael Jackson his patient he would have insisted on treatment for his insomnia problem...Period..No excuse for Conrad Murray.

It MUST be miracle Easter Sunday - cause I actually agree with Joe Jackson. For once.

TEAM JOE (can't believe I actually said that ...) though I still believe he's a tried & true "money-grubbing, whore-mongering, child-beating monster!!" just like #4 said he is.
