Dr. Murray Will NEVER Cop a Plea in MJ Death

6/25/2011 6:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sources directly connected to Dr. Conrad Murray tell TMZ ... the Doc will not accept any plea bargain from the L.A. County District Attorney in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

0624_conrad_murray_mj_ex

We're told Dr. Murray feels so strongly about his innocence, even a plea with no jail time would be out of the question. 

Fact is ... Dr. Murray shouldn't hold his breath, because no plea bargain has been offered and sources tell us the D.A. will not offer one.

As for Murray's defense ... we're told the centerpiece revolves around the fact that only two people were in the room around the time MJ died, and Murray insists he did not administer the fatal dose of Propofol.

The operating theory of Murray's lawyers -- when the Doc left to go to the bathroom, a frustrated MJ woke up and administered the fatal dose himself in a desperate attempt to get some sleep.

So we ask ...

I had thought Michael did slowly kill himself, with all his doctors that enabled him. Rabbi Schmuli has tapes of Michael and he was very unhappy and very aware of his actions. Dr. Conrad is guilty, but not of murder, but of neglect and greed. We lost the King of Pop by so many factors, he was a genius who was very intelligent.

Mr. Clean jealous of kate

It will never ever end, MJ's fans will always think of him as a God who was not a drug abuser, who was a SAINT, and was murdered. Others see him-some as a pedophile, where some kids have never come foward (and yes, I know, the last case was BS, a family smelling $$$$), a con artist that stole tapes from Paul Anka, (big embarrassment for the estate with that BIG Thing with the handcuffs and briefcase escorting the case to be delivered and it was an old so so song of Anka's, and Anka was NICE ABOUT IT). MJ was in deep debt when he died, but he still was a big enabler to his family ('cept Janet, maybe laToya, and not to Reba)Those idiot brothers NEVER GREW UP BECAUSE OF HIM. NEVER LEARNED RESPONSIBILITY. In Debt, he put his mother into a MANSION! She did not need a mansion, a nice house maybe, but not a mansion and all that money a month. HE WAS THE SUPREME ENABLER AND BECAUSE OF THIS, NOT ONE OF THEM HAD THE BACKBONE TO COME FORWARD TO TRY TO HELP HIM COME CLEAN. His death, HIS FAULT, BUT HIS FAMILY STOOD BY AND WATCHED! They did not want to lose their allowances, so it was better not to talk to him then to help him or keep him from DYING!!!! So, in guilt, they blame others!!!!

In my opinion Dr. Murray was at worst an "ENABLER", and is not a murderer, quite the opposite. Wether he died with the Propofol or not, it was going to happen sooner than later. I (being a former prescription pain killer addict), know that it was just a matter of time. This addiction leads to 2 things: Jail, or Death, and being Michael Jackson, you don't go to jail....

Enabling an addict is a crime, especially when it is a doctor doing it. Yes, Michael, like all people, are ultimately responsible for their own actions. But when others do actions that are obviously harmful (directly or indirectly) to another person they need to be held accountable. Basically, if Murray and other doctors refused to knowingly give him harmful medications Jackson would probably be alive today.

Mr. Clean wow

Dr. Murray accepted the position knowing full well what it entailed. He wanted all the perks that came with the job and along with that came the responsibility. He can't have it both ways. Dr. Murray took an oath to act in the best interest of the patient and he failed miserably. He should lose his license. MJ was a kind and gifted person. He was a humanitarian with a wonderful smile but he wasn't perfect and lived in a "bubble" at times. It's unfortunate he became addicted to painkillers and propofol for he was always against drugs. Unfortunately, it can happen to anyone as only too many know. It's a shame he couldn't find an alternative to propofol for his insomnia or at least taken better precautions.

Dr. Murray is guilty of failing to put MJ’s health and wellbeing before everything else. Did Dr. Murray make MJ an addict? No, MJ did that but Dr. M certainly enabled, provided legal access to drugs and assisted MJ in his addiction. He deserves to be punished in an appropriate manner. That is to say, the public trial is not fair as had his patient been Joe Blow from Noweheresville, Arizona, none of this attention would be on him. He did wrong, but the prosecution seems to be geared to who the patient was not what the doctor did. He should be subjected to the same sanctions for his part in MJ’s death as he would in Joe Blow of AZ.

Lyell Stef

MJ was a drug addict...no doubt about it..but Dr. Murray was a doctor who did NOT keep the oath he took when he became a doctor to 'do no harm'. He, along with others, supplied MJ with drugs and in Murray's case, Propofol-something that was NOT to be used outside of a hospital/surgical facility setting and more importantly is NOT used to treat insomnia. Of course he's responsible. He left the room and left his patient while giving him the Propofol. He's an a**. Heaven help the morons who continue to use him as their physician.

Mr. Clean Satish Desai

Here is a suggested defense for Dr. Murray that might get him out of trouble:

Dr. Murray was a paid employee of Michael Jackson's promoter company - whatever the name was. In other words, Dr. Murray was not free to act on his own, as an independent professional who had control on what treatment he can give to his patient, without the fear of loosing his job. He was rather, obligated to follow the instructions of his employer, or else get fired.

As such, Mr. Murray (not Dr. Murray in this case) can not be held responsible for injuries or death caused by his actions which were performed under immediate control of his employer. The state would have to prove that Murray injected certain drug without the consent of MJ, in defiance of MJ's instructions, and with the intention of harming MJ.

To prevent such tragedies in the future, the State of California would have to pass a law prohibiting employment of physicians by their patients.

SUN Ziggy

I love Michael dearly, but he was an addict. I believe he was impatient, and frustrated, and likely gave himself a massive dose when he couldn't get to sleep. Having said that, Mr. Murray illegally brought Propofol into the house. He did not monitor Michael while he was under the influence of the drug, and he left the drug alone with the patient. These careless actions led to the death of Michael, therefore, he is guilty.

You back again? Guess you didn't have time yet to read the autopsy report huh?


Only drugs found in MJ's system were those that Conrad gave him. Might be a good idea to also review the amount of pills that were left in each prescription bottle along with the date the drugs were prescribed.


For someone who claims, "my opinions are based solely on good intuition and common sense", I say pffffttttttt.

LoL

As I stated, you certainly are not a fan no more than I am not a fanatic, nor do I think you grasp the meaning.

As I previously stated, you have no knowledge of this case or the reason for him being ‘personally’ persecuted & crucified most of his life.

Michael Jackson did nothing in his personal life to warrant such CRUELTY.

Unlike you, I use FACTS & what I don’t know, I research to find the FACTS.

''I am, after all, about intuition and uncommon sense''

I don't go by my immediate or intuitive recognition or what I read in the media.

I & 'most' of Michaels fans tend to use COMMON SENSE.

Dr. Murry aside from being an employee was first and foremost a physician. Hetook an oath to heal and try to save lives. In his own actions he compromise his oath by supplying someone with a know addition with a drug which should never have been in Michael's home or anyone else for that matter. Dr. Murry unfortunately allowed the love of money and fame to be first on his agenda. We sometimes must come face to face with the poor choices we make in life. It happen to be someone on a large scale but make no mistake about it Dr. Murry has to answer for those decisions. I have always been a fan of Michael Jackson in and out of life but people seem to forget he was a human being just like all of us. All of his decisions may not have been correct but I know when we all seek medical attention we trust that our physicans are making correct decions in our medical care. With that being said Dr. Murry has to answer no doubt about it.

Frankly, I'm not really interested in autopsy report, or any report.
To me, it's all about his music, espec. the dancing.
I'm most definately a huge fan of his massive talents, but not interested in all the back-story

pffffffttttt to you, too --- lol.

"Not interested in all the back-story"?

Guess that's why you have a total of ONE follower on your blog.


LMAO at the fake fan with "intuition and uncommon sense".

THE UNHOLY THREE!!!

I wanna know why you see fit to pick on me, or anybody.
You really should MYOB.
If you see fit to disparage other commenters, pick on people who say god-awful things about MJ. I've never said a mean thing about him --- just have a different point of view about Michael's situation and I'M ENTITLED TO THAT WITHOUT YOUR GETTING ON MY CASE.
I'm not on your case for saying what you have to say about MJ 'cause I don't care.
Stop caring about what I say and leave my name out of your posts --- it makes you look bad!

Cherwood: how dare you call me hope-less!
You seem to have no life beyond your long and winded stories about the King of Pop.
You come across as really nasty to those of us you disagree with.
Shape up, get a life and LEAVE ME ALONE!

MiMi: if you saw me singing and dancing to MJ-tunes, you wouldn't be saying "you're not a fan".
Simply, don't bother reading my stuff if you don't agree or like what I have to say.
And don't worry about my blog: NOT YOUR BUSINESS!

Sara Jane: you couldn't be more wrong in saying that "most of MJ-fans tend to use common sense." Most of his fans are rabid and nonsensical, which is well-established by others.
You have NO right telling me "I don't think you grasp the meaning".
I mean, WHO ARE YOU TO TELL ME ANYTHING?
Take a hike, Sara Jane!

Are you kidding Me? Mind our own business?

ROFL! This is a public site and it was you who came on here first promoting you defunct blog and then making ridiculous statements about Michael based on your so called "intuition".

Just because you claim to enjoy his singing and dancing does not make you a fan or an authority on anything related to MJ. I assure you true fans know much more about Michael than just his dance movements and vocal capabilities.


Like I said, fake fan.

I'm pissed at the amount of doubt on Murray's side and the belief that MJ killed himself, what are these people idiots? I mean even if you didn't like the man- come on,its anestheia, has anyone ever seen someone get up and administer it to themselves? Let's use our brains here... even damn Angela Lansbury can see that!?

"Dr." Murray says he never ever considered a plea bargain. It never even crossed his mind. Murray is consistent at least - a consistent liar.

Dr. Murray did not kill MJ, MJ killed himself. Think about it which one of his so called loving familystood by him? Now that he's dead they all want to pretend that they lost so much in the mean time they are looking to capitalize on his death. Murray is innocent.
