Dr. Murray Targeting Jurors Who Take Responsibility

3/23/2011 7:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With jury selection beginning tomorrow in the manslaughter case involving Michael Jackson's death .... TMZ has learned ... Dr. Conrad Murray is targeting 12 men and/or women who take responsibility for their actions ... this according to sources who have seen the jury questionnaire.

One of the more revealing questions:  "Do you believe patients have the responsibility to tell their doctors about their complete past and current social habits, including use of drugs, alcohol and prescription medications?"

A central part of Dr. Murray's defense is that Michael Jackson was a hard-core Propofol addict who hid his drug dependence from the doc ... thus Murray wasn't operating with full knowledge.

Other questions laser in on what people think of the case, with a heavy emphasis on social media.

-- Do you have a blog?  If so, describe.

-- Are you active on social networks.  If so, which?

The answers will lead Murray's lawyers to spontaneous comments of prospective jurors that could be more revealing than answers they give in court.

And the questionnaire asks:  "Do you financially support others outside your immediate family?"

Dr. Murray has had money troubles that could make him sympathetic to certain jurors.

Other questions include:  "At what age should a person be held accountable for their decisions, actions and consequences."

The defense is looking for people who believe in personal responsibility, such as small business owners.

He administered the drug to MJ in his home, without proper equipment, had tons of the drug delilvered to his baby mama's home, along with bother drugs found at MJ's home, and ran oxygen tanks up and down the stairs every morning. This guy is sick and he knew MJ had other doctors.

TMZ where did you get the questions seeing that the judge clearly told both sides that he did not want the questioner leaked so it could float around in cyber space??? Please do tell?

Just plain fact states it right here!!!! I think Murray was irresponsible and reckless,he was responsible for the well being of a person who had addiction problems, we all know this it is not new news! Lets just get it over with so MJ can RIP and his family can move on mainly his kids!

Question for prospective juror:

Do you believe that defense attorney's like myself are basically dirt-bags looking for a quick buck?

Do you think this pathetic excuse for a physician is innocent?

Do you believe that this entire trian is a sham and that Michael Jackson is simply a disgusting little pervert and drug addict?

Dr. Kill did not take his own personal responsibility on June 25,2009 when he KILLED Michael Jackson ?Did he call 911 when he knew something was wrong? Did he take responsibility to tell Michael's family EXACTLY what happened the day he died? Did he even admit to himself that he had no dam idea what the hell he was doing? I think his lawyers need to ask Dr. Kill the same dam questions that they want a jury to answer!!!

THEY WOULD WANT TO MAKE THE CASE EASY TO EASY.... ONLY THAT MICHAEL JACKSON WAS NOT DEPENDENT ON ANY DRUG, NOT EVEN ON PROPOFOL, AS THE CORONER STATED, THEN THEY CANNOT PROVE A DAMN!!!!

MURDERER WAS OPERATING WITH SUCH A FULL KNOWLEDGE THAT HE ORDERED AS MANY AS 255 VIALS OF PROPOFOL AND LIED TO THE PHARMACIST FOR GETTING THEM!!!!

IF THEY WANT SO LONG JURORS WHO BELIEVE IN PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, THEN THEY MUST BELIEVE IN THE RESPONSIBILITY OF A """""DOCTOR""""" WHO ADMINISTERED A POTENT ANESTHETIC TO HIS PATIENT IN AN INAPPROPRIATE ENVIRONMENT AND WITHOUT ANY SAFETY MEASURE!!!!

MURDERER HAS HAD MONEY TROUBLES ONLY WHEN HE HAS HAD TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT, FOR THE REST, HE WENT AND GOES TO DO SHOPPING, DRANK BEVERAGES AT THE POOLSIDE, TRAVELLED AND TRAVELS HERE AND THERE, ETC. ETC........

THESE DEFENSE IS SO RIDICULOUS AND ABSURD JUST LIKE HIM WHO IS ALSO SUCH AN IDIOT WHO WAS LAUGHING WHILE THE JUDGE WAS CHARGING HIM, AS AN IDIOT WITH THAT HIS UGLY FACE, OVER THAT A COLD BLOODED MURDERER WHO THOUGHT ONLY TO COVER EVIDENCES INSTEAD OF HELPING MICHAEL - HIS PATIENT - WHO WAS IN DISTRESS FOR HIS TOTAL FAULT, RECKLESSNESS AND INCOMPETENCE, ALL FOR THIRST OF MONEY!!!!

MURDERER IS COMPLETELY GUILTY FOR HIS ACTIONS AND MUST ROT IN JAIL!!!!

I don't believe MJ was a Propofol addict, but it really doesn't matter if he was or not. That doctor acted outside the scope of standard of care. He didn't do what he was medically, professionally, or ethically obligated to do--which was to NOT give Michael Jackson Propofol outside of a hospital/medical setting. He also left Michael unsupervised while administering a drug that requires CONSTANT supervision and monitoring. Whether Michael wanted the Propofol to sleep or not makes no difference at all. It was the doctor's RESPONSIBILITY to DO NO HARM and DO what was medically best for Michael. Had Murray lived up to his oath and his responsibility as a physician, Michael Jackson would still be alive today.

What about Dr. Murray taking responsibility for his actions? Talk about the pot calling the kettle..... And every doctor knows that patients do not tell their doctors the truth. Sheesh! I'm not saying MJ wasn't truthful with his doctor, I don't know, but a true doctor would know the honest state of Michael's health. From what I've read, Dr. Murray was on the phone and left the room, hid meds and did not call 911 right away. He was looking after himself, covering his behind, before he did anything to try to help Michael. And what kind of doctor doesn't know how to perform CPR. My kids know how to perform CPR!!! Take responsibility for your own actions, Dr. Murray. Don't you dare be a hyporcite.

WHY?! What a hot mess! Think of all the people who would have appreciated the opportunities that Conrad Murray had. Murray throws away an education and a medical license, in his hands, like a street punk. And For What?!

WHY?! Conrad Murray should get the same type of mercy that he gave to his patient on June 25, 2009. What a waste of a medical degree; more important, another human being's life. All the while, trying to blame the victim. And For what?!

JUSTICE = There will be a special place in the lowest level of hell for Conrad Murray. 24/7, 365 days a year. Believe that!
