Dr. Murray Trial

'Abandonment' Is the Key

9/27/2011 10:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


After some shocking opening statements in Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial -- Harvey thinks the whole case could hinge on one word ... "abandonment."

Plus, why Murray's defense team could be shooting themselves in the foot by declaring Michael Jackson was a severe drug addict. And, the audio recording of MJ -- out of it and rambling -- is already having a huge impact.


(1:20) The lowdown on the prosecution's compelling opening statements -- like how Dr. Conrad Murray had over 4 GALLONS of Propofol shipped to him during a two month span.
(4:10) Harvey strongly believes the key word in the case WON'T be Propofol ... it'll be "abandonment."
(12:10) Conrad's attorney argued that MJ caused his own death ... and how "science" will prove them right.
(22:20) The SHOCKING audio recording taken by Dr. Murray ... in which MJ is seriously messed up on drugs.
(27:40) Is it possible to establish MJ accidentally killed himself if Conrad doesn't take the stand?
(42:05) Harvey thinks the defense team is screwing themselves by showing MJ was a serious drug addict.
(43:30) Could MJ have really injected himself in the TWO minutes Murray claims to have been absent from the room?
(45:40) The prosecution make a strong move today by showing a picture of Michael's dead body.

Okay... I think that Conrad Murry accidently gave MJ too much medicine and now he's too afraid to admit it... he's guilty. I just wish they would drop the whole thing and let MJ rest in peace and quit putting his fans and his family through all this crap.

The problem is, propofol is not a medication that should have ever been used in a home. It was so far outside the standard of medical practice it was criminal to have been using it that way. I fail to see how there is any defense in this at all, just because a patient wants something does not mean you should be prescibing it. If that were the case, he could go to walmart and get it, but there is a reason it requires a medical doctor, so this kind of thing doesn't happen. He was being paid to break the law and practice dangerous medicine, and now he has to pay the consequences.
