Michael Jackson

Bedside Lined with Pill Bottles

10/5/2011 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson propofol bottles
If it wasn't obvious Michael Jackson had a drug problem before -- this oughta do the trick ...

According to an investigator for the L.A. County Coroner's office, Michael Jackson's bedside table was lined with a pharmacy's worth of prescription pill bottles.

Investigator Elissa Fleak just testified -- she inspected MJ's bedroom the day he died, and found the above collection of pill bottles beside the singer's bed.

Among the pills -- a collection of sedatives Diazepam, Lorazepam, Temazepam ... the list goes on.

Fleak says she also found a blue bag full of Propofol vials -- the same bag MJ's security guard Alberto Alvarez claims he packed on Murray's orders ... before calling 911.

not guilty

let the man go home and take care of his children.

stop the witch hunt.

Michael wouldn't have wanted this to happen.

Fans have to realize how damaging this is to Michael's reputation. My gosh, we've heard about his urine pads, catheters inserted in his penis and bottles of urine in Michael's drug den slash bedroom. Would he have wanted all of this to come out?

Instead of being remembered as the "greatest entertainer" and known for the children's hospital he wanted to open - he will be known as a drug addicted, plastic surgery obsessed man with weird perversions like wanting to be sedated with anesthesia.

This trial is making him look so pathetic.

He must be rolling over in his grave.

Murray is a cold heartless human being to exploit Michael Jackson the way he did for his own selfish gain. Period. He is not taking any responsibility for any of the unethical and criminal acts that he definitely committed, and even some of which he himself admitted to doing.

You have to remember who controls the media (CNN & HLN).... Michael Jackson has always been over-sensationalized. I personally think his troubles started when he became vocal about his displeasure & resistance to conform what the industry wanted from him.

TMZ, this does NOT prove that MJ had a drug problem "before." These are the drugs that were given to MJ to get sleep by Conrad Murray. You're always trying to twist things Harvey et al., because you want to be able to call MJ a "drug addict." If that facts don't fit, you'll just twist them, right? Disgusting. I forgot, you're entertainment, not journalism.

Anyone who says that Michael Jackson was not addicted to tranquilizers, sleeping pills, pain medications and propofol is either a fool or trying to fool you or himself or both.

He was addicted to drugs like Elvis Presley was addicted to uppers, downers, laxatives and anti-laxatives.

Still, if Conrad Murray had done his job properly, odds are Michael Jackson would still be alive. But Conrad was negligent and incompetent and reckless so Conrad should be punished for that.

The prosecutors were able to show that Murry failed his patient in the following ways:

1.) Did not accurately chart or do***ent health/history/physical/treatment.
2.) Did not refer the patient to specialized help for sleep disorders/anxiety/drug addiction. Practicing specialized medicine outside the scope of his training.
3.) Administered dangerous drug for off-label use under substandard conditions.
4). Insisted patient was healthy when he clearly should have known or did know that the patient wasn’t.
5). Administered controlled substances to a known drug addict.
6). Left the patient alone when constant monitoring was indicated.
7). Did not act swiftly or properly once the patient was discovered to be in distress.
8). Lied to rescue personnel about the treatment administered.

If that isn't gross negligence or wholly incompetent, I'm not sure what is. Even if Jackson survived this "treatment", Murry still has a lot to answer for his complete lack of ethics here. Murry had every opportunity, not to mention his complete RESPONSIBILITY to tell Jackson that this treatment was outside the scope of therapeutic treatment and unethical. Murry had a DUTY to Jackson to tell him NO. But clearly money convinced Murry to follow a different path. Murry knew that as he tried to conceal the full story from the paramedics and the UCLA doctors. Addicts will give any story, manipulate others to the nth degree, or do whatever is necessary to continue their addictions. It was still Murry's responsibility to tell him NO. And it would still be the responsibility for any doctor succeeding Murry to say no as well. It's very sad on both sides.

One of the records showed Dr. Murray attempted to have I.V. equipment sent to his girlfriend Nicole Alvarez's Santa Monica, California apartment. Hirschberg said that the private residence raised read flags at her company and they refused to send the equipment to that address.

If only she had reported this to authorities.

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

I wish they were able to resuscitate Jackson but he was a vegetable the rest of his life and felt torturous internal pain from all of the drugs he did but wasn't able to tell anybody. HAHAHA. He got off WAY too easy for a pedophile.
