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."

Heeeeeeey, where did this one pop from out of nowhere all of a sudden!?! So, you mean to say Joe J got "tipped off" about your "disclosure" before it made it on your page!
Now, that's saying something about your "exclusive scoops" huh! :O ;) :D

Naughty, naughty TMZ has been busy "re-arranging" stuff to fit into their "own agenda" again here, haven't you just! :P It can get hard maintaining a good act when you don't know "the cues" yourself ;) I must say, real soppy way to start something' here :D :D :D

As for the rest of it, I don't see why it's equivalent to rocket science to understand that a father is naturally INDIGNANT over his son's "unnecessary & preventable" death!!! I guess it's just the "JACKSON" factor coming into play here & overshadowing the rest of the simple truth here. How is it that so many of us are so ready to "forgive" Doctor Murray & yet, so opposed to cut Joe J any slack! Why are we so conveniently "selective" about what we should "open our eyes to"!?! I realise we are all very vulnerable to our own emotions too (and certain opportunistic predatory "vultures" don't help either), but shouldn't we at least try? All very sad really :'(((

To the long awaited "truth" again & May it help set us ALL free...

This just goes to show you what a quack this Dr. is. It is ludicrous to think that any of us would be so stupid as to buy into that lie from the pit. This man should never be let out. It should be tried as a homicide, not manslaughter. Just goes to show you how low he is to even say such a thing. I hope he gets what he deserves. He took something good out of the world.

You old lying Catfish looking devil. I hope you ate alot of everything sky high in cholesterol and fat over the Easter weekend and continue to do so everyday. I hope you also consume alot of alcohol everyday. If you don't smoke or chew I think you should take up those habits also. Be sure to keep an active sex life. Enjoy life to the max!

Why would Joe be horrified over this? MJ was a junky. Didn't Joe state that in the past? He said they tried to get MJ help? Now they dare pretend MJ was a not a spoiled brat who sucked on soda, propofol and many other drugs. Too bad Joe, your gravy train is going to be exposed for what he was in court. Get your head of the sand.

Some of you all have got the nerve to judge or say anything about the Jackson family. Need to stop believing everything you read online or in the news. Not all of it is true. I think Katherine is more than qualified to raise MJ kids. MJ kids are by all accounts well behaved kids. So there's no issues there when it comes to the kids. How do you know what's being done with the money that Katherine is getting? There is security, home schooling, outings, nanny and much more for a whole month that needs to be covered. Don't you thing the estate and the lawyer have some idea what it's going to cost. Some of you need to think before you start judging. MJ kids seem to be happy and having a good time. Need to leave this family alone

MJ's in the grave, after he dove into delusions of grandeur.
If a decent human had judged him & hospitalized him, he'd be breathing. An ill man needs mental care, not fake comfort from greedy concert people.

The dozens of cult members in the family let this embarrassment happen.
You can see the msnbc video of MJ's imbecile brothers laughing hard and saying Joe did nothing abusive to Michael.

They denied that Joe had a problem with MJ, after Joe was not given money after his death.
These idiots lost any singing ability they had 25 years ago, so they're desperate to grab love from impressionable teens on TV show appearances.
Of course, leeches La Toya, Janet & Katherine were too lazy to care about putting MJ in the hospital. No help between April-May. No help in June 2009.

I continue to be amazed by the number of people who ignore MJ and the Jackson family's responsibility in this matter. Murray is just one of a string of physicians hired to babysit Michael Jackson whose "prescription" drug abuse had become so serious his handlers feared for his life. This was bound to happen.....It just happened on Murray's watch. Tragic?? Absolutely. But there is nobody to blame but Jackson himself. Nobody steps up like this when a common crack whore dies....they just don't care. Addiction is addiction. It kills.
