Katherine Jackson: AEG Was Reckless with MJ's Life

1/21/2011 4:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson has just filed legal docs claiming AEG was well aware ... there were life-threatening activities going down at Michael Jackson's house ... yet the company turned a blind eye.

Katherine Jackson AEG
Katherine is challenging AEG's motion to dismiss the wrongful death lawsuit against the company.

In her docs, Katherine says AEG retained Dr. Conrad Murray for an "exorbitant salary of $150,000 monthly," and in return Murray agreed to "get Jackson to attend rehearsals and perform."

Katherine's lawyers claim it should have been obvious to AEG when Murray requested CPR equipment at MJ's home that "the medical treatments being administered risked stopping Jackson's heart and breathing." 

Katherine's lawyer continues, "This is hardly the type of risk expected in an ordinary house visit from a family doctor."

The lawyers claim, "AEG should have known that the course of treatment being administered by Dr. Murray was unorthodox and unsafe."

Who ISN'T responsible for Micheal's death? He made some bad decisions about his health and unfortunately he paid the consequences. Who is going to be sued next? The cook, driver, mailman, gardener,housekeeper, lawyer, banker, plumber? Did his family see him in the year before his death and NOT think something was horribly wrong? Does a normal, healthy man go to court in pajamas or dance on his car while on trial for molestation?? PUHLEEZE!

Joe Jackson an illiterate child abuser    

AEG was not Michael's babysitter! Katherine, Joe was right when he said you should have been living in the house with Michael as he asked you to! Not that you would have done much as you are a first class wimp! Joe Jackson and you are more to blame for MJ's death than AEG! AEG is a business; they don't tell clients how to live. BTW AEG did not employ Conrad Murray - MJ's bodyguard introduced them, and later MJ approached him to be his personal drug dealer/doctor, when others said "NO."

Tell-Zit    

Michael Jackson had so much money,he had bags of money in his rented home.The Fake DOC TRT returned some of that money.MJ had the op to kick all of them out of the house and be a SINGLE PARENT CLEAN AND SOBER or play the flip side of the record.We know what would be on the flip side B.The death song that so many play till the needle skips and the lights go out.Hey take your kids there a turn on the BABY CAM,,,,go home and see what really goes on behind closed doors..WOW would you call the cops,?????? OR wait till you get a call and your kid is dead.

Annie, that is absolutely Beautiful!!! Thank you!!
I got goose bumps reading it!!

How about this one:

Khalil Gibran

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, "Speak to us of Children."
And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.


This is why Mrs. Jackson is fighting for Justice, because Murray shot her “Arrow” down!!!!

It's like a game of CLUE... The Dr. did it, in the bedroom, with a needle. How about, the drug addict did it, in the bedroom with a used needle. Hmmm...

DNA and Chromozones are links to life. They are like a Book. And in this little book you can read that a lot of Caucasians actually have African blood in their genetics. Even if they look white!!!

Annie-I´m Not-ok and WillOThe Wisp, beutiful and fitting. It is
the cruelest of fates to loose a child when you yourself are old. The assaults against Michael started years ago, 2009 was only the last chapter.I wish you the best, you have formidable opponents.Thome-Thome said he didn´t think Michael could do even one concert, still they pressed on adding stress.No way did they play fair.He was managing Michaels affairs even after being fired by Michael.A week or some days before his death they had a confrontation at Michaels with murray and co-conspirators.They killed the golden goose, because there was more to gain from his death.Again I wish you the best.Please get some specialist witnesses.
