People vs. Dr. Conrad Murray

Paramedic #2:

Murray Lied About IV Bags

9/30/2011 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Martin Blount -- Firefighter/Paramedic #2 Testifies
Updated 9/30/11 at 2:00 PM

0930_witness_ff_02The second paramedic who rushed to resuscitate Michael Jackson claims Dr. Murray informed him the IV bags on the scene were filled with a harmless saline solution.

According to Martin Blount, Murray insisted the saline was used because MJ was "dehydrated" from a 16-hour rehearsal the day before.

Blount claims Murray never mentioned Propofol.

Senneff, the other paramedic, testified he saw Murray clearing out vials after MJ was loaded onto the ambulance.

What's interesting -- Blount says he saw Murray scooping up Lidocaine bottles into a black bag even before the singer was taken out of the room.

If MJ used Anthem Blue Cross for his medical needs he would have been dead years ago

A little irony here, in that, a fireman/paramedic was on the stand when the fire alarm went off.

So, multiple people saw Conrad Murray remove medicine from the scene. Really not good testimony for Murray!

Jackson judge calls attorney's interview shocking


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The judge overseeing the trial of the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death told the lead defense attorney Friday that he found an interview his law partner conducted on the case "shocking" and possible grounds for contempt.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor told attorneys he watched the interview during a break with his mouth open because attorney Matt Alford is identified as a member of Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team and criticized a key prosecution witness.

The judge noted that Alford used the pronouns "we" and "our" to describe decisions about the doctor's defense.

Alford, a partner of Murray's lead defense lawyer Ed Chernoff, was interviewed outside the courthouse by "The Today Show."

"I sat there with my mouth open" while watching the interview, Pastor said, because Alford was identified as a member of Murray's defense team, according to court transcripts. He also called the interview shocking.

Attorneys and the judge huddled in several sidebar conferences throughout the day on the issue.

Alford criticized a key prosecution witness, Alberto Alvarez, in the interview. Alvarez, a bodyguard for Jackson, testified Thursday that Murray scooped up vials of medicine and placed them in a bag before telling him to call 911.

Pastor ordered Alford to appear in his courtroom on Nov. 15 for a contempt hearing. At the end of a heated conference on the issue, Pastor said Alford was considered a witness.

That came after Chernoff told the judge to hold him in contempt and not punish Alford.

Prosecutors complained about the interview Friday morning.

The interview with Ann Curry came hours after the judge warned defense attorneys not to comment on the case out of court.

"I am serious about interviews and about commenting on the state of the evidence or on credibility or on the overall issues in the case," Pastor told the defense team Thursday afternoon, a transcript shows.

Alford is not one of the attorneys representing the doctor in court in his involuntary manslaughter case.

Blount said the IV stand had bags containing "normal saline" because MJ was "dehydrated" after a 16-hour rehearsal the night before.
___________________________________________________________
A 16 hour rehearsal on 6/24/2009? For Michael? Really?

Michael left Holmby Hills around 6pm. The camerman Ed Alonzo recalled the singer arriving at Staples around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday but not beginning rehearsal until 9 p.m. Music Director Michael Beardon and Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich concurred that rehearsal begain around 9pm. According to the dancers rehearsal ended at 1:00am on 6/25/2009. Yet, the snewz room at TMZ calculated 16 hours from that??????? (tone it down a notch to 4 hours of dressed rehersal)

TMZ: LIARS!!!! LIARS!!!! LIARS!!!!

btw: the lies and distortion of the articles on TMZ is always placed in the middle of the story. Then they go at it with mores lies, delusions, and ignoramous conclusions...That's the TMZ official brand and writing style.

Please do not bother with an Associated Press version of the last 24-48 hours of Michael's life. They are just as bad as TMZ. Only difference the AP is respected as a legit source for news!! The AP has rewritten, rephrased and misquoted a great deal of the facts as told by those who had nothing to lose except their dream job and friend.

Lidocaine was administered to combat the burning sensation as Propofol entered M.J.'s system.

Blount said the IV stand had bags containing "normal saline" because MJ was "dehydrated" after a 16-hour rehearsal the night before.

______________________________________________

WTH? First off, AP IS reputable.

Secondly: Where does it say BLOUNT said that. Not on this article, nor anywhere else most especially in anything AP has written.

Scroll back to the top, and read it again slooowly this time, k?

Never mind. I'll bring it HERE for ya:

"According to Martin Blount, Murray insisted the saline was used because MJ was "dehydrated" from a 16-hour rehearsal the day before.

Okay? Blount said that MURRAY INSISTED...

Get it?

And, THEN you go off on a tangent about the Associated Press has inaccuracies TRYING to say they're anywhere near the same utter twisted reporting BS as TMZ is, which TMZ is MOST of the time; however, THIS article? IS accurate. Amazingly.

LOL! WTF ever!

I AM HORRIFIED BY THE CRUELTY OF DOC MURRAY.

IT BECOMES EVIDENT THAT DOC MURRAY WAS GIVING TIME TO MICHAEL JACKSON TO DIE. WAITED FOR MICHAEL TO BE OUT OF SIGNS OF LIFE, AND AFTER BECOMING SURE THAT HE IS DEAD, HE CALLED SECURITY AND 911. HE KNEW THAT MICHAEL COULDN'T HAVE BEEN REVIVED. HE DIDN'T GIVE A CARE THAT MICHAEL IS DYING AND WAS BUSY SAVING HIS SKIN BY REMOVING VIALS. HORRIFYING.

OR, DOC MURRAY HAD BEEN OUT OF THE ROOM AT LEAST 30 MIN TO 1 HOUR, NOT 2 MIN AS HE CLAIMS. 911 STAFF STATES THAT WHEN THEY ARRIVED MICHAEL HAD ALREADY BEEN COOL. IF A MAN DIES HIS BODY IS COOL IN APPROX 30 MIN.

HORRIFYING. I CAN'T EVEN IMAGINE WHAT MICHAEL JACKSON HAD HAD TO EXPERIENCE. THERE ARE SO MANY EVIDENCES PROVING DOC MURRAY BE GUILTY.

AFTER HEARING THE WITNESSES TESTIMONIES I HAVE AN IMPRESSION THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG.

IF I WERE A DOCTOR I WOULDN'T HAVE BEHAVED LIKE MURRAY, I WOULD HAVE GIVEN ALL, ALL MY EFFORTS TO SAVE A PATIENT'S LIFE, AND WOULD DO IT AS FAST AS POSSIBLE.

WHEN YOU SEE A MAN WHO IS UNCONSCIOUS, WHAT DO YOU DO FIRST? - CALL EMERGENCY - 911. BUT BEFORE EMERGENCY ARRIVES YOU DO SOMETHING TO HELP A MAN TO REVIVE. ANYWAY YOU'RE TRYING. ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A DOCTOR, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A CARDIOLOGIST.
WHAT HAD MURRAY DONE - WITHHELD FROM 911 STAFF THAT HAD ADMINISTERED A FATAL DOSE OF PROPOFOL. GAVE TIME TO MICHAEL TO DIE, OR HAD BEEN AWAY FOR MORE THAN 2 MIN. HAD NO EFFICIENT MEDICAL DEVICE TO MONITOR MICHAEL'S LIFE. HAD A POOR KNOWLEDGE OF RESUSCITATING A PATIENT BY ASKING A BODYGUARD IF HE KNEW HOW TO DO IT. HAD A STRANGE DEMEANOR WHILE AND AFTER. IT IS SO EVIDENT.

I JUST WONDER IF DOC MURRAY WOULD BEHAVE IN THE SAME MANNER IF IT HAD BEEN MICHAEL JACKSON NOT A POPULAR SINGER, BUT MICHAEL JACKSON AN ORDINARY MAN? I THINK - YES. I THINK, DOC MURRAY WOULD DO ALL POSSIBLE TO SAVE MICHAEL JACKSON AN ORDINARY MAN, NOT A KING OF POP.

HORRIFYING TO HEAR ALL THAT IN THE TRIAL. MY HAIR STANDS ON END.

POOR MICHAEL.

WE LOVE YOU! NO MATTER IT IS, WE LOVE YOU. RIP.
