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.

I think it is possible MJ injected himself. Harvey said he woke up refreshed, not drowsy. Nobody will really know what Mj was like when he awoke but I can understand why he would, if he woke up frustrated that he hadnt slept much and with Murry gone he just did it him self. I think if Murry hadnt left MJ may still be alive, Murry was in the wrong place at the wrong time. I could be wrong but I guess wel never know what really happened that morning

JUSTICE FOR MJ...

regardless of how this case turns out-Murray will walk the streets poor and broke with no job....

And will be stared down upon for killing MJ...regardless of if anyone likes MJ or not, what he did is wrong...the man had a drug problem YES we know...but MONEY is what fueled Murray in this case.

Let that bastard 'hang by a thread'... he'll be cut off soon enough.

Maybe he NEVER WOKE UP.........He was a responsible father.

He was a responsible parent. His kids were his world.

If he was known to read all labels of the foods he ate then one can be quite sure he was an expert on the effects of Propofol on his body and in combination with other prescriptions, and therefore would NEVER NEVER NEVER have taken this drug by himself – if in fact it is possible to self-administer this drug – particularly knowing he was alone and unattended without someone beside him to constantly monitor his respiratory system and other vital signs.

Plus , if he was even aware of the fact that several other prescriptions had been administered to him within the past 8-10 hours he certainly would never have jeopardized his system given the well known dangers of combining these types of drugs especially if he had to be functionable, ready and alert within 6 hours to be at rehearsal.

Earlier I thought I read Dr. Murray stated he himself, administered the Propofol. What caused this testimony to changed?

It was also earlier reported at least one of the calls Dr. Murray made while Michael was in a (state of unconsciousness?) was to a former client asking the client if he would like to resume his services in case he wasn't going on his anticipated sabbatical (on tour with Michael)?

I thought the doctor was expected to be going on tour in just a few days with Michael - what caused Dr. Murray to be making phone calls asking former clients to retain him again as their doctor?

Why would the doctor be lining up new business if he didn't already believe his position with Michael had ended – while Michael lay in a seemingly sleeping or unconscious state? And before calling 911?

Wasn't the doctor already making an enormous salary working for Michael/AEG - way more $ than what he could expect to make in private practise?
What about the insurance factor?

What happens if Michael Jackson's insurance policy with AEG if Dr. Murray's defense is believed and Michael's murder is wrongly judged to be self-inflicted ?

What do believe in what dumad A** HARVEY HAS TO SAY, WON'T ANSWER LEGIT QUESTIONS AND he is probably a drug addict himself since he felt refreshed, shit I couldn't even open my damn eyes when I had propofol.

What if Michael woke up because his body had a reactions to all the drugs, he sat up, gasped for air, his heart stopped and he collapsed with his eyes wide open. We have seen pictures of people that have died suddenly and there eyes have stayed open.... the doc is guilty no matter how you look at it!

And we would beleive Murray that MJ's eyes were open because,,,,

Come on, I feel like I'm in a Seth Myer's "REALLY?" skit on SNL. Can the defense prove that MJ's eyes were open, or are we just to take Murray's word for it, who also claims he only left the room for 2 minutes, and it just so happens that in that 2 minute time frame, that MJ miraculously woke up, saw Murray was no where to be found, looked around, happen to find a syringe and a bottle of propofol within arms reach and inject himself? REALLY?

And if MJ injected himself, and died suddenly with his eyes still open, the needle would be right there stuck in the port in his leg, and we would have heard about that in the coroner's report and/or Murray would have told this story to the police right away not 9 months later when he thought about it and finally came up with this stupid theory, I mean, REALLY!!

And now we are also to beleive that MJ drank so much Coke (soda) that the caffeine would have kept him awake through all those drugs, yet there is no mention of caffeine in the coroner's report. And if Murray was "suppose" to be helping MJ sleep and/or wean him off of Propofol and other sleep medications, wouldn't the first thing an MD would do is make sure the patient does not drink caffinated drinks?
By the way, MJ's teeth were near perfect. I don't see the acidic errosion or enamel loss that would be caused by a lot of soda drinking...

Who Cares???? Michael Jackson demanded his "Milk"! That freak was asking for death! This doctor did what he was told... so the King of Pop died because of it... to freaking bad!! BYE MICHAEL!!! You pervert! Was brought to court on child molestation charges not once but TWICE!!! Why were no girls ever alleged being molested by YOUR king of pop??? Because he was GAY AND A PERVERT!!! I'm gay and would never have ideas of sex with young boys. He's dead... good riddance before his own boys get of an age to molest... Everything about MJ makes me want to vomit!! What a predator... got off scott free like that other guilty f*ck, OJ!!

ok and the defense thinks people is soooo stupid to think that perhaps that doctor injected MJ more propofol while awake??? and then panicked because MJ clearly didn´t close his eyes..why???? because he, the doctor exceeded the dosage.....look, whatever happened there, murray still has to pay for a mistake cause yeah humans make mistakes but to kill someone??? he has to serve jail time......i don´t care if MJ was a junkie or else...murray has to pay

This is just another BS thing TMZ comes up with.
The coroner who is an expert said it was homicide not suicide. They can tell from the levels of propofol in the tissues that it was not from an injection but from a continuous infusion.

too bad it wasnt a bullet    

YOU GO DR MURRAY.....HE WAS A JUNKIE LONG BEFORE YOU MET HIM AND I CAN SEE HIM DOING THIS TO HIMSELF.......MICHAEL KILLED MICHAEL AND THATS JUST THAT....IDIOT JACKSONS ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR A WAY OUT, BY BLAMING OTHERS. I WOULD LOVE TO BE ON THAT JURY, CAUSE THERE IS NO WAY ANY JURY CAN CONVICT UNLESS THEY RESEARCH EVERY DOCTOR THAT HE USED AND ABUSED. NOT CONDONING WHAT DR MURRAY DID BY EVEN LETTING THE IDIOT JUNKIE TALK HIS WAY INTO USING A DANGEROUS DRUG. IF IT WAS'NT DR MURRAY, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SOME OTHER SAP DOCTOR THAT JUNKIE MICHAEL WOULD HAVE MANIPULATED. SO NO WAY COULD I CONVICT HIM OTHER THAN PRESCRIBING A DANGEROUS DRUG TO AN ALREADY KNOWN JUNKIE. TWO YEARS PEOBATION IS ALL I WOULD GIVE HIM!
