Dr. Conrad Murray Trial

Prosecution:

Murray Killed MJ

11/3/2011 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Michael Jackson manslaughter trial will never end for Michael Jackson's 3 kids ... because Conrad Murray is the reason their father is dead -- so said prosecutor David Walgren in a powerful closing statement.

Walgren -- in a measured but forceful tone -- told the jury, "Michael Jackson trusted Conrad Murray.  He trusted him with his life." 

Walgren hammered home Murray's alleged recklessness in fueling MJ with Propofol and other drugs night after night.  In all, Walgren noted Murray injected Jackson with 4 gallons of the anesthetic.

And the prosecutor made sure the jury remembered that Murray repeatedly lied to paramedics and doctors about the drug that did Michael in -- Propofol -- showing a "consciousness of guilt."

Walgren scoffed at the evidence, showing that Jackson was complaining he couldn't sleep yet Murray was distracted by various telephone calls:  "What was so pressing that he just couldn't care for Michael Jackson."

And there's this... Walgren noted that Murray kept almost no medical records but took the time to secretly record Michael while he was under the influence of Propofol and other drugs.

And Walgren showed disdain for the defense's key Propofol expert, Dr. Paul White, who testified that MJ injected himself with the fatal dose of Propofol, saying, "What you were presented by Dr. White was junk science...it was garbage."

According to Walgren, Murray acted with "extreme, criminal, gross negligence" in his care for MJ -- and the only possible verdict is GUILTY.

The defense is about to strike back in closing.

David Walgren was very impressive. A guilty verdict is due. The Guilty verdict will also send a clear message to the 'feel good' doctors who profit from people suffering from pharmaceutical dependencies.

Hmmmmm    

Think about it....
Without the proper amount of Lidocaine, which there wasn't as reported in the autopsy - it would have been ---- burning, searing pain down through his veins - unconsciousable!

MJ killed himself. If you hire someone to give you drugs, you are taking a risk. Every time you take drugs, you are taking a risk. Yes, Murray did a TON of wrong here, but MJ wanted him to do it.

I do hope that every doctor who ministers to a rich and/or famous patient is paying close attention to the disaster that is Conrad Murray's life since taking MJ on as a patient. Murray seems to have suc***bed to at least two things: greed and the desire to bask in the reflected glory of Michael Jackson. A sad end for both Murray and MJ.

Very well said by the prosecution according to all of the listing evidence. Hopefully soon we will hear the verdict of Guilty of Involuntary Manslaughter.

But with going to the evidence of Dr. Murray recording Mj under the influence of drugs still has me wondering why in the right mind would he do that? It's something that sticks to you, because Mj would never want anyone to hear him sounding like that. And he claimed he was his friend, and a true friend wouldn't recorded another friend in that condition, presumably without your knowledge.
