Michael Jackson's Son Will Not Be Witness at Prelim

1/3/2011 9:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The prosecutor in the Michael Jackson manslaughter preliminary hearing -- which begins tomorrow -- will not call Michael's eldest son, Prince Michael, to testify about what he saw the day his dad died ... sources tell TMZ.


Dr. Conrad Murray has said after administering CPR he ran downstairs and asked the chef to send up Prince Michael, who saw his dad's lifeless body lying in the bed.

In fact, we're told no one from MJ's family will be called to the stand during the prelim.

As TMZ first reported, prosecutors plan to call 30 witnesses during the 2-week prelim ... many of whom will be medical professionals offering opinions about the standard of care administered by Dr. Murray.

There will be no "star witness" in the prelim.  Sources tell us the various witnesses will form building blocks, making the case that Dr. Murray acted recklessly by administering Propofol and other drugs to Jackson the day he died.

This is the most preposterous defense I've ever heard. However, given that it's Michael Jackson, the public will believe anything. Explain to me in rationality how someone on a powerful anesthetic even sits up, nonetheless self-injects (into his leg). While this clearly didn't happen, Dr. Murray can try to defend this any way he wants; The evidence of medical malpractice are clear regardless. Propofol is not to be administered to anyone outside of a hospital, and nonetheless for helping with insomnia. Secondly, it is a dangerous powerful anesthetic that depresses breathing and heart rate. Anyone on an anesthetic needs to be monitored every second, as people can stop breathing and their hearts can stop beating on such a drug. That he left the patient there by himself for who knows how long to talk on the telephone is incriminating in and of itself, not to mention he tried to hide the evidence by fleeing the scene after the ambulance came and then trying to conceal propofol by sending it in a box to his girlfriend... doesn't sound like an innocent person to me. I realize Michael Jackson was disliked by some, but no one deserves to die at the hands of a negligent doctor, nonetheless have the one responsible blame the victim who is no longer here to defend himself due to his actions. Despicable.

Mike pretty much killed himself. To make Dr Murray go to trial is just looking for a scapegoat.

Los Angeles prosecutors have suborned perjury and bribed witnesses as in their recent losing Anna Nicole Smith trial. They also manage to find the least credentialed and most unbelievable 'expert' witnesses. A preposterous 2 week preliminary hearing means they have no case.

Yes, he IS the spitting image of the dermatologist. So is Paris. MJ may have adopted those kids, but he was not the biological father. For all the skin-bleaching MJ did, he was still a black man with black genetics. Those kids don't have a drop of African-American blood in them.

MJ's son does NOT even look anything like this anymore and has grown alot. He looks NOTHING like Arnie Kleine. Obviously some of you have never seen him in person before. If you did, you would now he is definitely mixed and definitely the biologically son of Michael Jackson. The older he gets the more he looks like his father and acts just like him. The girl on the other hand looks ALOT like her mom Debbie, but has Michael's smile.

You people are absolutely ridiculous! All the evidence and you still don't believe that Michael children are biologically his? Blanket looks exactly like Michael at the same age. You would realize this if you weren't so filled with hate for a person you didn't even know. Prince Michael has vitiligo. Do you even know how impossible it would be that Michael just happened to adopt a child with the same GENETIC condition as himself? people have lost your minds.

It doesn't matter what you think of Michael. The fact remains that Murray should never have administered that drug to Michael. Just because you hate someone does not make it right for you to want their MURDERER to go free.

You people make me sick. What has this world come to when we spew hatred and lack compassion all because we can hide behind our computer screens like cowards. First, those kids are his. If you watch the recent do***entary that Oprah did with his kids you can see that Prince has vitiligo just like his DAD. Second, i dare you to say to those kids that Michael is not their father. Im sure they would shut you up pretty quickly. Third to the ignorant ass who said he BLEACHED his skin, go read the autopsy report and then do some research on vitligo. To say he bleached his skin is to also disrespect every other person out there who suffers with that condition. Shame on you all.
