Conrad Murray: Michael Broke the Syringe!

3/16/2011 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A huge development in the Dr. Conrad Murray trial involving the death of Michael Jackson ... the defense wants a first generation fingerprint of a broken syringe found in MJ's bedroom the day he died ... and our sources say they think it could prove that Michael killed himself.

0224_conrad_murray_tmz_ex

Dr. Murray's lawyers were in court this AM.  Among other things, they lasered in on a broken syringe that had rolled under Michael's deathbed.  The defense wants a first generation fingerprint to determine who was handling it.

Defense sources tell us ... Dr. Murray insists he did not break the syringe.  As TMZ first reported ... the defense believes MJ caused his own death by giving himself a massive overdose of Propofol while Murray was out of the room.

Defense sources say ... there were only two people in the room, and since Murray did not break the syringe, Michael must have handled it.

The defense is asking that the FBI deliver the first generation fingerprint.

Here's your lesson folks, don't get killed in California because justice doesn't stand a chance.

mmmm first he drank it, then he pushed it now he came out of state of unconciousness and used a syringe on himself. Has anyone thought that maybe it came from the paramedics?

Injection needles for injection solutions from the bottle. For all standard disposable syringes:

Disposable syringe with integrated needle for subcutaneous injection of insulin:

To administer propofol by IV bolus the syringe attaches directly to the IV cannula port, so doesn't need the needle but you can "break" the needle.

Believe it or not ;)

Dr, Murray is a hero for whatever role he played to get the pedophile off the strrets and into a rotten casket.

sad lonely pathetice fools....

Do you simply wait for any excuse to say the same thing every time this story comes up? Oh, wait, I see, MJ fans are sad lonely pathetic fools, yet you're referring to Murray as "a hero". I need not say more, you're doing a bang-up job all by yourself. I can't wait for your next pearl of wisdom!

First of all, this is probably an IV needle, which would never be used to inject any type of narcotic into any vein or subcont tissue, it may also be a needle used to drawn blood, draw fluids, the needle is HUGE and so long, it would frickin go all the way through the muscle and subcont. it looks like an IV needle.

Disposable syringe with integrated needle for subcutaneous injection of insulin:

YEP, that's whay I use for insulin, a DISPOSABLE syringe, needle attached, you toss the entire thing, the needle is not removed and cannot be removed.

So, I don't have a clue what Murray is referring to, i thought the propofol was pushed - bolused anyway. It doesn't matter, the defense is ridiculous, MJ some how passed out in a coma but got half the needle under the bed, the other part (whatever that's supposed to be) nicely on the table. Taking a needle off a syringe, which isn't done for narcotics, doesn't mean broken, that's now what's been said, and how could MJ unscrew a frikcin' needle off when he just administered a dose of propofol so strong it killed him. None of it makes any sense, no matter how you/they...whomever else spins it. Sorry, not believing any of it for a second. But, that's just me...you can believe he broke a needle, took a needle off, bolused himself. whatever.

Ok, so he is throwing another excuse out to see if it sticks to the wall or a dog bites it. LOL. Next it will be that MJ's kids dog did it. What excuse is Murray going to give next on why he walked out of a room after drugging Michael up with all of those benzos and topped it off with propofol? Their is none. And what excuse is he going to give about hiding the evidence before calling 911? Or about not performing cpr correctly? Or about not telling EMT'S or doctors at UCLA on what he administered MJ? Or why did he hide out for 2 days and than change his story several times since the death?
If this trulely happened why is he just saying it now?
No, its all about the defense throwing different **** out there and seeing what has the crap on it to stick.
Their is no excuse for what he did. None at all. Doesn't matter if you are a fan or not of MJ. He still was a human being.

I only meant to help understand what Murray's defenders tell us. This does NOT mean that I BELIEVE what they tell us.

OK...cause, I can't figure out what they're trying to say and how any of this could even be a plausible defense...so, if ya do figure it out or understand it, let us know. :)

but, again this was posted by TMZ, maybe it's not true, not the full story...who knows. it just seems so odd, all of this, now the surveillance tapes are erased..HUH?

RIP, Michael Jackson...

From the Preliminary testimony


=


Q: Asks about the “broken” syringe.

Fleak: I should have described it as “separate.” It was not cracked it was not broken it was not defective in any way. They were just separate—the needle and the plunger.

Q: As you sit here now you would have described it as a broken syringe?

Fleak: No I wouldn’t it.

Q: Why did you collect that?

Fleak: It was on the ground near the bottle on the ground.

OK, thanks Mimi..that makes a bit more sense; the supposed barrel and the plunger were taken apart...not the needle. Acutally, this wouldn't mean anything, if it was the syringe used to administer the propofol the barrel would STILL be in the plunger. But, again...MJ just administered a lethal dose of propofol but took the plunger out of the syringe and threw it under the bed...he was apparently near death and did this..HUH? Maybe it was an old syringe conrat used earlier, who knows. I thought their last defense strategy was MJ drank the propofol. So, did they fingerprint the bottle of propofol too, MJ would have had to touch that too. I mean, this seems like almost a joke, ya know.

pardon me , but this is crap..
michael didnt kill himself at all.
murray should know because according to him he only left the room to take a pee...
bottom line is they can put this garbage out all they want , but i dont think it will influence a jury one bit.
what ever people might think of michael , this man had a responsibility to his patient and he never gave a flying fig...
he just wanted to tell everyone he was hanging with mj and misrepresented himself as a professional who knew what he was doing.
who ever was paying him so much money expected him to stay with his patient..
he is absolute garbage..

Murray, you know you put that under MJ's bed. Off course MJ did it to himself since he's not here to defend himself. Dead people can't talk, can them?
