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.

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 truly believe that Michael Jackson was a drug-addicted child-molesting worthless piece of trash. Before you call me racist, I am black as can be. I just can't understand how some people worship this pathetic human being!

Well Kaveman,

I am a Black female and I say that you are and were probably always a jealou*****er of Michael Jackson. Those false accusations are just a convenient screen to hide your jealousy and hatred for Michael behind.

It's not Michael's fault that you don't have a woman and are therefore forced to go on Michael Jackson boards and bash him.

Now, if you're not forced to do this, but instead come here willingly on your own (to check out a site of someone that you despise)then you seriously do have a problem.

Absolutely nothing to do with whether MJ was an addict, or even whether he was ultimately responsible for a doctor (who should have known better) knocking him into a coma every night. The relevant fact is that the Doc abandoned his post and patient during a time when life-support is essential, both malpractice and breach of contract. It is like being paid to teach your kid to swim, and then, walking off and abandoning him (even temporarily) while the kid is tentatively holding onto a float in the deep end of the pool.

Very good scenario.

I agree with you on all of this, and also are they implying that the needle was already prepared and ready to inject or was he supposed to have filled the needle with the Propofol and then injected himself?

This man (Michael Jackson), had so many songs. On the radio, at 12:00 am, (6/25/11)they started playing all MJ songs, and will continue for 24 hours straight, and so far that I've heard, they have repeated none.

Noone of doctors who attended Michael before Murray hasn't told that they suspected Michael in abusing of any drugs. Autopsy also has shown that he didn't abuse. Presence in the house of the old tranquilizers which have left working life specifies that Michael not only didn't abuse pharmaceutics, but even not completely used that medicines which he had at home. Only one murray repeats, what yes, Michael asked for propofol , and I gave him it(for big money of course). How is it possible to trust the person who one day for one person can make so many errors and change statements when he want. Let's trust blindly such people , instead of normal doctors, good sense and logic.

Elvis is an American icon but MJ is a world icon. They're both worthy in their own way.

3 Dr. Murray if is guilty or not.He have his own fault to.He should knew MG is in trouble as everyone else knew it.It was MG personal doc.
4 MG parents are both guilty.
The other points it doesnt matter......
My opinion is MG maybe with some help, he couldt be alive in are days 2.
Everybody is guilty.

MJ was murdered, he said the people around him were trying to kill him, he owns the rights to the Beatles & Elvis.... he was launching a tour to wake up millions of followers to the fact the gov't is corrupt and there are powers behind the govt, music & movie industry that are satanic in nature (illuminati)... you can see him dancing infront of the all seeing eye, hitting & dissing it, they bleached his skin and caused the allegations of child molestation, he realized he was a pawn and they had to kill him, do the research yourself.

Why is Tito Jackson not an option for best Jackson sibling? I definitely think he truly cares about his family, and has stayed out of the spotlight just because of his brother's death. He has made a name for himself, as a solo artist, producer, father, and Jackson. Without a doubt? I say he is the best sibling. Janet is good too, but I feel she hasn't defended Michael publicly like Tito did.

When it comes to justice, there is no matter who you are . The facts speak for themselves. Simply, the more known the person, the more interest are caused by everything that is connected with. Including a criminal scene also. And on a concrete example it is possible to judge justice of legal system. Hater's allegations show bias, prejudgment .
Fans and simply interested people try to lean against the facts.

Old pervy Mike killed himself.

Why do all the MJ freaks want a piece of this guy? If he didn't supply Michael the drug addict someone else would have and he'd still be in hell.

He shouldn't cop a plea. There is no proof he gave the final dose of propofol. He denies doing it. There is no video of him doing it and there WAS a vial of propofol next to MJ's bed when the medics came.. proof that MJ could have woken during the night and administered the fatal dose to himself.

Murray is being used as a scapegoat in this... It doesn't matter if Murray had given MJ propofol a million times -- the only thing that matters is if he gave the final dose...

And there simply isn't proof of that.. Period..
