Dr. Murray Rally: We Love You

6/11/2010 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Murray Pastors from several churches in the Houston neighborhood where Dr. Conrad Murray does charity medical work are organizing a rally to coincide with his scheduled hearing in L.A. to set a date for the preliminary hearing.

We're told United States Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be in attendance, to show support for the doctor who is accused of killing Michael Jackson.

We're also told as many as 1,000 people are expected to show at the Galilee Missionary Baptist Church in Acres Homes, a poor community in Houston.

As TMZ first reported the initial plan was to charter buses and come to L.A. -- to counter the protests organized by Michael Jackson fans.

UPDATE:  Congresswoman Lee's Chief of Staff just called TMZ and said, "There is no knowledge of any event.  There is no truth to the story."

#32 My two cents I agree with you when you said MJ begged people to help him (with this Propofol) and Murray was the only one that would. THIS IS THE CRIME!!!! Instead of Murray saying OK (show me the money$$$$) he should have said what any moral and ethical medical doctor would have said....NO! HE SHOULD have walked away. In fact, a decent doctor may have recommended a safe alternative that wouldn't have KILLED MJ. That is the point. Murray took the low road and it ended up a tragedy. He knew he was doing a very dangerous thing. If a small child asks you for a pack of matches or a lighter would you give it to them?

First of all, you must realize that nothing these people do is personal, just business. And Secondly, there was nothing wrong with her speaking at Michael Jackson's memorial because she gave him his credit; and she kept her politics out of his service. Having said that people should know that Dr. Murray has constitutional rights, just as anyone else, and if she didn't support his constitutional rights she wouldn't be much of a congresswoman, would she? You just have to give credit where credit is due, because Murray has done good for the Houston area.

I can just see it - thousands of poor Southern Baptists being led in song by that Congress person singing "Glory, Glory Halleluya" as Murray goes marching in! How LOW can you go? W T F? There you go - that's what government is paid to do - geez!

I don't care what Dr. Murray has done in Texas or anywhere else. All that won't change the fact that he killed Michael Jackson, intentionally or not. I'm a registered nurse and a nurse anesthetist and I am DISGUSTED by what Dr. Murray did. He did NOT use Propofol properly, NOR did he treat his patient he gave Propofol to, properly. He did NOT make sure he has enough help around, he obviously did NOT educate himself about the drug (Propofol) he was giving to his patient or he would have KNOWN that he needs to BE PREPARED in case the PATIENT STOPS BREATHING!! He did NOT make sure he has the equipment one needs to have when a patient gets Propofol (monitoring, intubation gear, etc.), he did NOT even know the ADDRESS to where he was with his patient(according to him...that's why he didn't call 911 right away...that and because he didn't have a working phone...even though he was on the phone for almost an hour while MJ was struggling for his life...). Dr. Murray did NOT perform CPR properly (CPR on a BED...HELLO??!! And I don't belive for one second that Dr. Murray who is over 6 feet and bulky wasn't able to get MJ, who was only around 130 pounds, on the floor alone to get MJ on a hard surface!). And most importantly...Dr.Murray LEFT MICHAEL ALONE while MJ was under the influence of Propofol. You do not do that. EVER. NEVER EVER. ESPECIALLY when the patient is NOT MONITORED!!!



Just looking at the FACTS as someone who KNOWS what you need to do and look out for when giving someone Propofol, I am ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED by what Dr. Murray did, and I just CAN NOT see how ANYONE could defend Dr. Murray because all the facts show that Dr. Murray did not do ONE THING correctly while treating Michael Jackson on June 25th. And it is FRIGHTENING to me that he is still out there practising medicine. Especially since he is a CARDIOLOGIST and he obviously doesn't even know how to perform CPR....

I don't believe this trial is based on the good he did in Houston. It's based on what he did that led to Michael's death.
