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.

Marson, it's only the media who have brainwashed a lot of us into believing that MJ was a drug addict. The autopsy results PROVED that he wasn't and that the only drugs found were those administered by Conrad Murray that very day.
As for the rest of it, I'm convinced that Michael Jackson will never get justice in the State of California. Too much corruption, stall tactics employed at the court hearing and Murray being treated like a VIP. If a State can throw an innocent man (Richard Fine) to rot in jail for over a year by the very judges who he exposed as corrupt, then what hope is there?
I can't understand how American people can allow this to happen without challenge.

I thought he blamed his wife. Next he can start blaming his other sons and daughters. Hey, as long as he gets publicity, right? What a guy! Doesn't he make you wish he was your very own father?

-#275: Hey Grump--so sorry, my bad! That's what I get for not proofing my comments. Once I looked at them tonight, I realized I put your name in error. I was just so irritated last night after reading so many comments focusing on what an idiot Joe is and the fact that "Michael was an addict who asked for the drugs."
I think it's so sad that there are so many people on here who are so busy dwelling on the negative side of things, that they're missing the whole point--there's a man, a brilliant genius and loving father who is dead simply because a handful of greedy people who had access to him decided that his money/assets were theirs for the taking.
I think maybe many of us are simply happy with taking the easy way out by shrugging our shoulders and saying, "Well he was an addict anyway, like many others and he let that quack Murray give him drugs," while "Stranger in Moscow" plays in the background.
How simple and convenient. Just leave everything to the Media and they'll tell you what to think...RIDICULOUS!!
-#281: Hey Human Nature!! Great to have another voice of wisdom on here...
-#284: Hey Mymjj! Where you been, girl? Out seeking justice for My Man?!!
-#286: CJ, Thanks so much for that article on Katherine's book! I plan to look into it and see what it's about. I already have so many books on Michael, it's funny.
But I want nothing to do with anything that Schaffel character is involved in. Hopefully, he was only doing an interview and not involved with the book. Clearly, Katherine doesn't realize that he was involved with Dieter Wiesner and Ron Konitzer who were both accused of embezzling funds from Michael when Wiesner had his temporary power of attorney. But all of this came out in the 2005 Trial so I'm not sure why she doesn't know about it.
http://site2.mjeol.com/mj-news/april-28-trial.html



A few months back when Debbie Rowe tried to get into the Mausoleum at FL, Schaffel was tagging along with her. Not sure what either of them are up to lately but I don't trust them and Katherine shouldn't either.
Bottom line, if that book Katherine is doing has any ties to the Estate or Sony, I definitely WON'T BE BUYING IT!

-#288: Great point kathy40. There is a reason why Joe is the only one fighting windmills by himself. Randy tried to join the fight and look what happened. These guys are serious business--they don't play fair and they can shut you down--especially if you have a voice they think people will listen to. This is the reason Joe is able to say what he wants because they know most people are going to react exactly the way many have on here--completely discounting what he's saying based on his track record.
I agree with the Poster who said he's sort of like the boy who cried wolf, but this time, he's right folks and these wolves are your worst NIGHTMARE because they are dressed as normal businessmen who "really only want the best for Michael's legacy"....yeah....and BERNIE MADOFF only wanted what was best for his victims, too...
-
-#289: What a difference a day makes! Kudos Nita for helping spread the truth instead of falling for the hype on this story!
-
-#291: Hey Siggisis! I totally agree! This case is not Rocket Science. It's so obvious that these people have used the media to influence the public--even fans, into thinking that this is all Michael's fault and the vultures around him had nothing to do with it.
The only difficult thing about this case is proving HOW they did it, and who THEY are. But it's only a matter of time before we accomplish that, too. I wish we had someone with a voice to champion this fight for justice. Geraldo has been mentioned, but I don't think he's a good choice because he's too into sensationalism. Maybe someone like Spike Lee...
The thing is, anybody with a respected voice who takes this on, will be in extreme danger, unfortunately......

-#305: Hey Daphne! If you read some of the articles I included in my earlier posts, you'll find that both AEG, SONY AND BRANCA AND CO. are just as liable as Murray in Michael's death--in fact, Murray's only the bottom of the food chain.
As for the $10, 000/mo. Hush money, I wouldn't be surprised if it were true, but have seen nothing to support it except for Geraldo's statements. However, I doubt that the payments were given to keep the brothers from tarnishing Michael's name. If you watch any Interview with ANY of the brothers or their Reality Show, you'll see that NONE of them ever said anything derogatory about Michael even when pressed about the drug issues and such. Matter of fact, Janet and Rebbie were the only ones who made statements that could be considered negative statements, even if they were made with good intentions...
-
-#309: Daphne, I know what you mean, it IS a lot but I'm on a mission these days to try and educate as many people as possible on the plot that was perpetrated against Michael. There's no way I can say how much I love him, yet stand by and watch them play out this "Murray Amateur Night" when I know what REALLY happened....
-#313,314: Marson, first of all, I'm not worried because I know the Jacksons have a lot of info on this they're not sharing so I doubt Joe would listen to you.
Because you say you are a long time fan, I ask you to consider Michael's life. Think about how the media has consistently defamed him since the late 80's, think about how you THINK you KNOW that MIchael is an addict--who has CONSISTENTLY fed that info to you throughout the years? I will say this again:
THERE IS NO PROOF THAT MICHAEL WAS AN ADDICT OTHER THAN IN THE EARLY 90's after the Chandler allegations!!
Yes, he had some medical conditions where he was prescribed prescription meds, but that doesn't mean he was addicted. If you have further proof, I'll be happy to review it and change my mind, but I know there is no other proof. The whole thing was perpetrated so that they could convince the public that Michael was at fault for his own death. ANd thanks to fans like you, they may succeed...
BTW: Joe's exposure of AEG, Branca, Sony, et al. will not hurt Murray's chances for doing time. Regardless of who put him up to it, he's STILL GUILTY of giving Michael the meds that took his life. Matter of fact, when the truth is revealed, it will show that he PURPOSELY GAVE MICHAEL the Benzos and OD of PROPOFOL AFTER HE WAS ALREADY IN DISTRESS....
-
-Kudos Bunny and Mymjj for your words of wisdom on this. Hopefully we can help lead them to the light, one person at a time.........
-#316: Luna, ask yourself a question: Why did the media--including TMZ, jump all over that story about Joe accusing Katherine....especially when he had already made those statements months ago--why report them now?
WAKE UP PEOPLE....WAKE UP!!!

OMG Cherwood, Human Nature and to those of you who have done your research and therefore can write with authority on what really happened to MJ I say a huge thank you. Gosh Cherwood you brought tears to mine eyes once again. When Geraldine Hughes talked about the conspiracy against MJ she was ridiculed and so was Aphrodite Jones just because of their honesty. Jones went along with the media at first untile she did her own investigations. What a travesty against a human being, but you know there is an old adage which says what goes around comes around, and as sure as there is a God above, those who mistreated Michael for all these years WILL be exposed. I dont think that his father Joe is the demon everyone makes him out to be. In his era that was all he knew about keeping his kids in line, the thing is that when kids begin to withdraw into their shell you have to be careful that it was not your doing. I know exactly what I am saying because a lot of what MJ went through so did i. The thing is that MJ was so soft hearted and kind trying to please everyone except himself. He was way tooo generous and those vultures around him took advantage of that. A lot of them refused to get up of their a@#ses and do an honest job but waited to spend MJ's hard earned money instead. Their time will surely come as sure as day comes after night. So dont worry Cherwood and Human Nature I like it when you both write because a lot of what you say make sense and what you dont know is that you are opening up a lot of our eyes. Anyone with a modi*** of common sense CAN see that there was a concerted attempt to destroy Michael and a huge plot was involved. Thank You so much for your comments Cherwood.

More food for thought, that. Scary.

Well, it would be a good thing if some people would wake up and not allow this terrible injustice to happen.
As Americans you should all react against this! How are YOUR rights being violated if this can happen to Michael Jackson?

A.Y HARRISON speaks the truth.It is like mafia.Also,people saying he s a drug addict-yes-HOW DID HE GET THERE? WHEN DID HE START THE DRUGS AND WHY?? the media lies and gossip mongers caused this.Listen to MJ s music- the lyrics changed ..it s so easy to see what was happening.we know it s when the false molestation accusation charges started.You only have to put yourself in Mj s shoes for a moment -yes it may be hard for some to do, but from one human being to another, one can only imagine how destructive this was for Michael.Plus, we all know that there was no one he could trust,does anyone of us here know what that feels like?Have you ever found out one of your 'friends' betrayed you? how did that feel?Well ,this is what MJ faced with almost everyone after his $$$$ the ppl who pose with MJ in pics-it s only for that reason it s never bcos they care about him-only what they can get from him. this has been happening since he was a boy..Sometimes I wish Mj was nasty like all the others in show biz-If only he had the good sense to beat his wives, run whores,have babies with many women,cuss all over the place all the time, and drink lots of liquor etc all the things that make so many other stars accepted and loved in Hollywood-then all would praise him and all would love him and embrace him.. but he was ostracized bcos of false allegations and no one cares to accept the truth of the case where he was found NOT GUILTY ON ALL CHARGES.THIS DONT MEAN SQUAT TO THE MEDIA and so many No matter what any of us say MJ is gone.. we lost him forever. :(

I don't like Joe much.... But, this stuff about AEG pressuring the good doctor to sedate Michael seems quite plausible. In fact, AEG giving the good doctor directions to keep Michael medicated sounds quite plausible. It stinks and Joe has a real point here (for a change). Listen to the man this time.... This **** stinks real BAD.

--Hey Daphne!
Yeah, Cher's still in the game, for the moment...
The TMZ upgrade forced me to re-register and when I did, it gave me a message that I was "permanently blocked" (not sure why?), so I had to re-register on a different email and name!

Cherwood, it might be a good idea to keep it close to your chest when you change names etc. because staff read the comments on here.
It's a disgrace that you've been blocked when others such as OhWell and Tellit have caused total havoc on here at times and they let them get away with it.

Most definetly Joe is a greedy plotting ass, but I to feel Michael made his own choices. I don't think he was an innocent bystander He allowed these drugs into his system, but that does'nt excuse Mr Murrays action, he was the professional and he should've known better, no one forced him either.Anyway you spin it someone died because of these choices,and what is going on with the family and the allegations amongst them is disgraceful, not to mention dis respectful. Mr Murray will probably be serving some time for this, and rightfully so.Hopefully some good will come out of this and maybe it will wake someone up to get it together,huh, Ms. Lohan?
