Michael Jackson -- The Eyes Have It

4/6/2010 4:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's eyes could be powerful evidence in favor of Dr. Conrad Murray.

Michael Jackson -- The Eyes Have It

TMZ broke the story -- Dr. Murray's lawyers will argue Jackson accidentally killed himself by self-injecting a lethal dose of Propofol into his bloodstream. As we reported, Dr. Murray says he left the bedroom for a short time, came back in and saw Michael with his eyes wide open and pupils dilated.

Medical experts who spoke with TMZ say if a patient is sleeping and dies of an overdose, their eyes most likely would not be open. The defense position -- Jackson woke up when Murray was out of the room, became frustrated he couldn't sleep, grabbed the Propofol bottle and "pushed it" -- killing himself.

If a jury believes Jackson's eyes were open, they could also believe Jackson was awake and, perhaps, capable of grabbing the Propofol bottle which was on the nightstand.

Michael frequently injected himself. It was sad, but I don't think the doctor should take all the blame.

Conrad Murray is my hero!

No matter how you look at it, he did the world a favor and because of Conrad, there is one less pedophile in the world.

And thats the truth    

I just thought of this, but, when my Dad died, we were viewing his body and I did see a glue type substance at the bottom of his eyelids. I believe they glue your eyes shut when you die. Also, I think they used to put coins on your eyes back in the victorian days. I am guessing that was to keep your eyelids down as well. So the theory of his eyes staying shut is a joke.

Also, if I remember correctly, the bodyguard said his eyes and mouth was open, so when the bodyguard saw him, he was already dead.

I hate to break it to you MJ fans who keep saying...HE BROUGHT PROPOFOL TO THE HOUSE...HE BROUGHT PROPOFOL TO THE HOUSE. Dr. Murray isn't being charged with bringing Propofol to the house. He is being charged with with manslaughter and the good doctor will walk free if the defense can establish reasonable doubt as to whether or not Dr. Murray killed MJ.

Dr. Murray is guilty. Dr. Murray is innocent. Why all this yadda yadda yadda back and forth? Just celebrate the fact that Wacko Jacko is dead.

How is is plausible that Michael injected himself when Dr. Murray delayed calling 911 and he wouldn't give up when the paramedics wanted to pronounce Michael dead at the house, its all evidence of consciousness of guilt if Michael did inject himself Dr. Murray wouldn't of tried to save his own ass, this man is ridiculous.

Is there a place we can send donations to help Dr. Murray out with his defense fund?

While I don't think Murray did anything wrong other then give Jackson exactly what he wanted I have no problem with the outcome.

Jackson was a pedophile who paid off his victims to keep their mouths shut. He was warned several times to stop (far more then the average Joe) and he continued to bed children. He's a sick pervert and I don't care that he's dead.

Furthermore I think his family is a bunch of sick money grubbing losers (except Janet who has her own money). I think the father is disgusting, the brothers and even the mother. This is a circus freak family and the children will not fall far from the tree.

If nothing else I thank Dr. Murray for finally putting this pedophile to sleep. The fools who like Jackson can continue to defend his disgusting acts but if Jackson was your neighboor and not some supposed icon you would be calling the police daily.

For the MJ Community should realise Michael was one of the biggest liars going.

Michael repeatedly said parents knew he was sleeping with their children, but the evidence from defence witness Joy Robson says different. She stated she did not know her son was sleeping alone with Michael.

Read the Schaffel v Jackson 2006 case for more evidence of his lies.

Michael states in court he sacked Marc Schaffel as soon as he found out Schaffel made gay pornographic videos.

Yet Micheal continued to collaborate with Schaffel on a so called 'charity' record which according to a witness at the 2005 child molestation trial would earn themselves millions of dollars.

Despite having been sacked Marc Schaffel sat in on strategy meeting with Michael held before the Bashir interview aired and produced the 'rebuttal video'.

MJ fans declare as the truth a film made someone described on Michael Jackson's behalf as a 'professional swindler and pornographer'.

In March 2009 according to Frank Di Leo Michael shrugged off as ridicules any suggestion he was involved with drugs.

A friend of the family says when Michael came to London in March he asked her through her medical contacts to found a doctor to provide Propofol, 'no matter what it costs'. She rejected his plea,

Micheal's nutrionist tells of him pleading with her for a supply of Propofol, which she rejected and she says Michael contacted her no more until a security guard called her on 21 June and she advised Michael be taken to hospital.

In the Bashir programme what was his son Blanket supposed to make of his father saying Blanket was born in a 'loving relationship' with a female he knew, then later Michael saying he had no idea who the mother was as he never met her, one of those statements or both were another lie.

There's no doubt some money was doled out by Michael's main charity "The Heal The World Foundation". But a British documentary in 1997/98 showed the UK division had not handed any money for sometime.

The chief exec at the time was reported as saying the foundation had in it's first 5 years paid out $4m and would be paying out less in future years.

This foundation was Michael's main charity announced in a blaze of publicity worldwide and promoted at the Superbowl, yet check the accounts and by the late 90's it had very little or nothing coming in and appears to have paid out far less than the $100m mooted when it was set up.

As for 'Healing The World' and family unity how come Joy Robson ended up seperated from her husband when she settled in the US being financially supported by Michael. June Chandler ended up divorced from her hubby and no communication with her son and his father.

Even his closest allies and friends were cast aside and fed to the wolves known as the Michael Jackson Community.

One momement Bob Jones and Raymone Bain are said to be doing what they do out of love for Michael, not money. As soon as they are thrown to the wolves, the howling begins that they were only after money.

I'm convinced Michael was telling porkies for years, notice how often he would convince people to do dubious things by making it a question of trust and loyalty towards him.
