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.

I totally think if MJ had access to the drug and Murray stepped out of the room he would have taken it. I think if Murray wrote him any kind of perscription it would have been abused. MJ was great and I love him, but he was a drug addict. You can't trust them and I'm sure Murray loved MJ did whatever he wanted just like most people would for MJ

why would dr. murray ever administer a lethal dose (beyond a safe amount) if he knows by heart as a doctor how much is too much ? if michael injected himself, he would have miscalculated for sure, his first time playing doctor, and therefore killed himself.

Today is the second anniversary of Michael's death, and all the crazy haters are out in full force, showing their lowest, meanest treats. How do you get a twisted mind like that?

I just want to pop in to say I still miss Michael, I admire his heart and his talent, and he cannot be replaced. He tried to be a nice person, he helped a lot of people, and he left the most wonderful music, videos, short films, and memories. He had a lot to deal with, illnesses and bad people trying to make money off him, and terribly unfair media coverage. I hope he understood that although his fans knew he was only human, they never cared about all the unkind press he got and they didn't believe it.

There is a person whose name I don't want to mention today of all days, but he deserves to go to jail for he things he has already admitted to have done (and not done, but should have). We will eventually forget this person. But we will not forget Michael.

I am grateful Michael was born, and for him wanting to share his talent with us, and for constantly trying to be a better man, a better artist, to make perfects films and record, for the joy he gave. I hope his three children do not read tmz, but if they do, I'd like them to just forget about the harsh and mean comments, because they are made by sick unhappy people, and they have really nothing to do with Michael at all.

I wish so much that Michael was still here, but I think at the end of the day, he got a lot of good things out of his too short life, I believe he often felt bliss and that he touched heaven many times.

I am assured for hundred percent that Michael never would make anesthesia himself. He trusted only to hundred percentage skilled anesthesiologist with the control equipment. If it was any addict then having woken up off propofol he would had to have enough-long time in order to reach a syringe, a vial with propofol , to fill a syringe and shoot with a drug into a vein (or into a catheter). (it is not about 2 minutes)
I don't believe that Murray administered propofol during a long time without the control equipment. It either was used yet , except for last day, or propofol has been applied only at one single time -25 June. Murray wouldn't become risk using propofol from the very first day beginning two months back. (and Michael wouldn't agree with it). Because before Murray nobody used propofol for Michael for a every night usual sleep, and so Michael was no way addict . How would Murray can claim the contrary then? After two months of treating it is more easy.

With regard to MJ himself: I think he was a flawed human being who was neither completely good or evil. He made his share of mistakes, he did more than his share of good, he loved, he laughed and he left his mark on this world.

Was he a pedophile? I don’t know. I do think there was something unusual in his relationships with children. Was it sexual? Don’t know. Perhaps he was trying to create the loving, and safe childhood he never had and didn’t stop to think that for an adult man to behave as a child was inappropriate.

Dr Murray is merely a scapegoat. He hadn't even worked for MJ for more than six months at the time of his death. Michael was a petulant child in an adult body. Everybody lied to him to get what they wanted from him. Michael was a drug addict. He practiced questionable sexual behaviors. He believed that he was sane when he was obviously six nuggets short of a happy meal. His family were enablers, liars and users. This includes his beloved "mother" Katherine. Everyone acts like she was this saint. She was a dumb, clueless enabling mother who looked the other way while her husband beat the crap out of her children and then looked the other way when Michael took on more and more drug habits and questionable bedroom partners. She is just as guilty of neglect as is Dr. Murray. The worst thing Dr. Murray did was say yes to Michael instead of putting his foot down. He did not inject Michael with that fatal dose. Michael did it to himself. I would so vote not guilty in his trial. Simply because he is not guilty of murder.
