Joe Jackson Blames AEG for Michael's Death

6/17/2010 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray had requested lifesaving equipment and back-up help for Michael Jackson from the promoter of the London concerts -- AEG -- but the company never came through, according to a new complaint filed by Joe Jackson.

TMZ broke the story -- Joe was gunning for AEG by filing complaints with the California Medical Board and another agency, alleging the concert promoter abused Jackson in a way that led to his death -- and he's just filed with the Medical Board.

Joe claims days before Jackson's death Murray had requested a heart resuscitation machine and a nurse in several e-mails making the request, but AEG never provided it.

According to the complaint, Joe is accusing AEG of co-opting Murray's medical judgment by enticing him with a huge salary -- in effect engaging in the "unlawful practice of corporate medicine."

Besides the CPR machine, Murray also asked for saline, catheters, needles and a gurney.

AEG and Murray had no comment.

277. Think about it.
How often do you see a killer awaiting trial with a PR team and a spokesperson? (Who is paying, Murray?)
And how often do you see the press (TMZ and others), vilify the victim and glorify the killer?
It is sickening.

Hi Siggisis...

It is sickening, I think it is only happening this way because the victim is Michael Jackson!
I am VERY tired of hearing the "poor Dr. Murray" line myself!!

Hi Butterfly. Long time no see. LOL. This is something off topic. There's a royal wedding in Europe. I hope CNN will have TV coverage for the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. Wooooo, I love royalty, including the King of Pop. Missing MJ.

Furthermore, Geraldo Rivera claim that three of MJ's brothers are receiving $10,000 per month for their COOPERATION and SILENCE FROM THE ESTATE!!!!!

Posted at 8:29 AM on Jun 18, 2010 by HumanNature

Do u think its very possible that the estates paid them, is because they don't want people to trash MJ's associates too much, as dragging MJ's name thru the mud is going to hurt the MJ Brand. Maybe this is the reason behind all these payments, if there were such payments. Not necessarily to cover up any wrongdoing on their part. How about looking at it this way. Its possible? The estates did earn close to One Billion Dollars of new money. Just saying. My opinion is that, its not so much about the people looking after the estates, but AEG, does look quite questionable. Just saying.

Whether many of you care for Joe Jackson or not, I'm just glad to see that he is trying to get some of the many crooks around Michael pay for their wrong doing. There should be many of those lowlife's around him go to jail, and not merely Conrad Murray. What about that big-time Jew doctor in Beverly Hills, who was more medically involved with him than Murray was? And what about all of those hanger-ons, so-called friends, who knew that he had a drug problem and kept their big mouths shut? I hope Joe Jackson goes after every one of them. Because those other sorry members of the family aren't going to do a damn thing about it. --- Rev. George Brooks

First off for those of you who keep asking why we are still talking about this 1 year later, it's because nothing has been done about it. The doctor admitted he gave the drugs the autopsy says killed Michael. What is that was your family member? Would you be satisfied to let the guy go on with his life like nothing happened or would you want some justice? If Joseph doesn't stop this foolishness doctor Murray is going to walk free, because he is taking the spotlight off Murray by blaming other. I am a huge MJ fan for over 40 years, but he was a drug addict, which makes all this more sad. MJ needed help not the drugs Murray supplied. They ought to charge him with drug pusher he would probley serve more time. Even if Michael sat up in bed and gave himself every drug in that room Murray is still the responsible party. Only a doctor can get those kind of drugs, so he supplied a known drug addict with addictive drugs that led to his death. He WILL loose his license, he's a discrace to all the good doctors in this country. Ethically there is NO excuse for what he did! If Joe doesn't STOP he may put reasonable doubt in the minds of jurors that AEG or Katherine, or whoever is somewhat responsible. JOE please we fans are begging you let the DA do what he needs to do to get Murray locked up. Michael would want you to let the experts handle this mess right now. Justice for Michael.
