Dr. Klein Hands Over Michael Jackson's Records

Dr. Klein and his attorney handed over the documents during a pretrial hearing in Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter case.

Murray's team wants the paperwork to determine exactly what drugs Klein used to treat MJ. As TMZ reported ... Klein's medical records show he injected Michael with Demerol 51 times in the three months before he died.

Last month, Dr. Klein asked the judge to quash the subpoena for his records. Fail.

Hi Siggisis,

good to see you back...
You're absolutely right – it was Murray and nobody else who gave the lethal dose of Propofol to Michael, it's a shame how he tries to involve other people to minimize his guilt.
However, I don't trust Klein at all. If any doctor was close to Michael throughout the years then it was him. So – who knows whether he hasn't administered Propofol to Michael before? Who knows whether he hasn't instructed Murray to do so? Weren't there rumors that the good doc also called Klein from Holmby Hills? I guess there's so much more than "just" the Demerol. As a "friend" it would have been Klein's first responsibility to help Michael out of the trap in which he was caught by these prescriptive drugs. He certainly was a part of the problem, and he should pay for it. But not to set Murray free.

Klein is running a pill party out of his office, handing out pills/injections to celebrities.

demerol would not have shown up in MJ's system as it is not detectable after a certain period of time. It also changes into different substances in the body.

Klein is not fit to practice and he obviously over medicated MJ, regardless of Murray giving the fatal dose of propofol.

... and I forgot to agree: Just a fool could believe that Klein's medical records are true and authentic. There has probably been no need to change them – they've NEVER told what really had happened.

i think klien over medicated mj also, but it is conrad murray who recklessly gave him the stuff that killed him...
i still think klien should be investigated for the prescriptions he hands out, however i thought he was appointed to some kind of FDA board last year..i cant believe out of all the doctors around they chose him of all people.
he must be connected to some very influential people.

Hey Siggi, mymjj5 - glad to see some nice people on the boards for a change.

The mere fact that Murray did not keep any medical records is in itself very damaging to his case. That shows severe lack in judgement, extreme negligence and recklessness. How do you know how much of anything you gave to a patient without keeping track? That is Med School 101! Apparently Murray decided to skip Med School and go for the "Medical degrees for Dummies" class instead. What real Doctor would do that? Here's a thought - not a single one!!

All these so called "doctors" should lose their licenses to practice. If Klein didn't know or realize jackson was an addict just for stupidity alone that is just cause. BUt he knew, he just liked his status of being MJ's doctor / dealer. Good way to keep him coming back. keep him hooked on drugs and surgery. Animal.

Same goes for Doctor Death. If you have to give a guy propapol to sleep- obviously there is a drug problem and he should know better. Money can get you what you want, it can also get you killed.

Hi Moni, good post as always! And nice to see you too - you ALWAYS make sense. You are very bright! :-)
No, Arnie Parnie Klein is no angel, I agree, but he didn´t kill Michael, Murray did.

I am only here briefly. There are people araund here that I cannot STAND - I mean cannot STAND to "be around". I have had enough. Maybe around the trials I will be here more.

Bottom line...Dr Murray was hired to take care of MJ and make sure he attend rehearsal and able to do the shows at the O2, he failed!!!! Miserably, he offered below standard care. He was looking at the dollar signs and not the monitor, which he didn't bother to have. It was his responsiblity to ensure MJ was taken care of properly. Standard of care is the prosecutor angle. Destroy MJ image is the defense angle.
