Conrad Murray to Prosecutor: So Whatcha Got?

12/29/2010 5:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's preliminary hearing in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case ... set for next Tuesday ... will be a one-sided affair, because TMZ has learned Murray's side won't utter a peep.

Sources connected with Murray's defense tell TMZ Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, will be there to listen -- not to ask questions.  Specifically, when the prosecution lays out its case, Chernoff will be looking for holes and inconsistencies.

As TMZ first reported, the prosecution will call approximately 30 witnesses, including experts and LAPD detectives, to establish Murray acted recklessly in fueling MJ with Propofol the day he died.

It's a very good bet the judge will order Murray to stand trial ... judges rarely dismiss charges after a preliminary hearing.  So there's no point in Murray's lawyer playing his hand.

This doctor only came in at the tail end. Michael had been a hard core addict for years.

People like to blame someone but it should not be Dr.Murray.

You can't make an addict like Michael go cold turkey - that would have killed him too.

If this doctor tried to wean him off gradually he had a huuuuge task ahead.

Unfortunately, Michael died before he could get clean but he bears the major responsibility for how he conducted his life. Stop blaming everyone else.

Conrad Murray lied about Jackson medication


Dr. Conrad Murray failed to tell paramedics he had given Michael Jackson Propofol.

Do***ents from the official ambulance report which was filled out by medics on the June 25 last year - the day the pop star died from cardiac arrest, caused by "acute Propofol intoxication" - have been released, and state that Michael's personal physician didn't mention he administered the anesthetic shortly before his passing.

A family friend told the News of the World newspaper: "This is the clearest suggestion yet that Murray misled the paramedics. Why didn't he tell them about the Propofol? We are sick at what this report indicates."

Some of these nics are just cracking me up.

What, does Murray have no responsibility in this? Should he not be held accountable for his actions? What, not be held accountable for the negligence of his patient?

Let's forget the patient was Michael Jackson. Let's just assume it was just another person.

1).Murray knocked this patient out and walked out of the room without monitoring equipment and no one else watching this patient for how long I hope we find out. BUT NEVER THE LESS HE WALKED OUT OF THE ROOM.
2). Murray failed to do cpr correctly is what we been told
3). Murray failed to call 911 for a length of time. I guess maybe we will find out for how long soon
4). Murray failed to tell emergency personnel and the ER about the propofol.
5). Murray was not to be found for 2 days.
6). Murray changed his story several times.

Now, I am not taking up for Michael because he is responsible too for wanting this drug. But IF the above is true, not saying that they are, BUT if what we have been told so far is TRUE, how in the hell can you not hold this man accountable? Is your hatred so much for this man you would let a negligent man walk free?

Their was 2 people dancing to that dance that nite. Michael Jackson and Conrad Murray. The coroner already stated Michael could not have done this to himself. So it rules that out. Murray was the only other one with him.

Hopefully we will truly find out what happened to Michael that nite/morning, but I wouldn't hold my breath on that one.
And if Murray is found to be responsible, than yes he needs to be held accountable. If not, set him free. But if what we have been told so far is TRUE, I HAVE NO SYMPATHY FOR MURRAY. NONE AT ALL.

In American Culture someone who is honest, genuine and doesnt comit adultery is not normal. Wake up and smell the coffee good people should be like that and thats what MJ was a good real person who didn't fit in the shady american public. Its time conrad murray paid for what he did. JUSTICE PREVAILS.

Is murray serious? He knows he killed Michael yet he depends on his lawyers to set him free.So now Michael killed himself,why then did he need a "doctor" by his side,if this was true?
How are m lawyers going to convince the judge that the Coroner's autopsy report is wrong and their client is right?

Murray and 30 witnesses.
Tell me one thing DR Murray did right? I am not interested in what murray the executioner did.
The list of what he did wrong and what wrong omissions he comitted is too long.There must be some MD´s among the witnesses
who know as well.Much pertaining to basic medical practice.
Only the 1st:He malpracticed from day one.

A DOCTOR MEETS YOURGOALS AND OBLIGATIONS WOULD NOT ACCEPT THAT A PATIENT ALSO READS IN YOUR RESIDENCE HIGH-RISK MEDICATIONS, UNIQUE TO BE UTILIZED IN SURGERY IN HOSPITALS, WHERE THEY HAVE SUITABLE APPARATUS. EVEN IN THE HOUSE HAD THE SAME PATIENT. BECAUSE HE ACCEPTED? BECAUSE NOT CHECKED? IF I SAW HE WAS EXAGGERATING IN DOSE, BECAUSE LEFT NEAR THE PATIENT MEDICATIONS AND SIRINGAS? WHERE HE WAS? QUE NAO SAW SUCH THINGS. THIS DOCTOR IS JOKE, THINKS WE'RE ALL A BUNCH OF IDIOTS. MICHAEL CAN ETA HAVE INJECTED, MORE THAT DOESN'T STRIP THEIR GUILT, ALLOWED THE EXISTENCE OF SUCH MEDICACAO.
SAME THING WOULD PUT BEVERAGE BOTTLES ALCOLICAS BESIDE ALCOLATRA IN TREATMENT (TEST OF RESISTENCIA?), A DRUGGED, THAT SUCH LEAVE BESIDE YOUR BED A VASE OF MARIJUANA ... AND ABSURD THIS ACUSACAO. IT THIS
