Conrad Murray Trial

Michael Jackson Video

Proves Singer Was a Wreck

9/20/2011 4:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray want to show jurors just how worn down Michael Jackson was in the weeks leading up to his death -- and their proof ... MJ's blowout announcement for the "This Is It" concerts.

MJ held the news conference on March 5, 2009 ... announcing he would perform his last 10 concerts ever in London that summer ... insisting, "When I say this is it, it really means this is it."

Murray's defense team filed legal docs, claiming the video shows Jackson was rapidly deteriorating, both mentally and physically, when he made the announcement.  They're asking the judge for permission to show jurors the video, to prove Michael was literally on his last leg ... several months before his death.

Murray's lawyers also think the video is relevant because Jackson was "adamant" about performing only 10 shows, and that subsequently adding 40 dates to the schedule may have been the straw that broke the camel's back.

Dr. Conman Murray. Just because MJ was a wreck does not mean the Tooth Fairy injected him with Propofol.

So fake...come on...even the editing looks totally fake. Switching between the guy and the weird, random crowd shots. It's unbelievable. MJ should come out with a previously unknown and newly discovered song called, "Unbelievable." Or, maybe a tune called, "It's a Fake." So many choices to keep it all going. It's probably hard to know where to go next. More splats and splots at us all. (Yes, I made up the words.)

TMZ, are you watching the same video we are? Nothing about this video "shows he's a wreck". He does a fist pumping bit in the beginning that's pretty charged. He is coherent. He is appropriate. He is saying these are the last concerts he will do in his career.....it doesn't mean he's saying it's because he is feeble.... he is just saying that he's retiring.

OK this is stupid and here's why!!! If Michael Jackson was "on his last leg" and "deteriorating" in this video, then why couldn't a trained cardiologist see that? As a physician, you're suppose to give a standard of care, no? If your patient looks as if he's dying on his feet then you don't give him a boat load full of anesthesia. I don't care how much money or pressure this guy was under, shouldn't he follow his Hippocratic oath?

His standard care was sub par and because he threw care out of the window his patient died. If I were the defense I would rethink the strategy of using this video.
