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.

MJ thought he was doing 10 concerts which seems reasonable and fun. However, 50 concerts sounds like torture. Why would anyone want to do 50 concerts in quick succession? Not a recipe for good health and wellbeing for anyone. No pressure there!

50 concerts says CRAZY-TIME to me which out knowing anything else about it! Sounds fishy like someone stealing from someone! If you know the rest of whatever is, or isn't true, than the crazy stuff kind of piles up big time.

Doesn't take a genius to see something was not right in all of this.
