Dr. Conrad Murray

Why I DIDN'T Call 911 Right Away

11/12/2011 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0_da32o2rk_0_52qajm1t
Dr. Conrad Murray says he didn't call 911 right away the morning Michael Jackson died because he is a "trained" cardiologist -- and he could do whatever paramedics could do.

Murray made that boastful statement during a strategy session, and appears in the documentary, "Michael Jackson and the Doctor: A Fatal Friendship" ... which first aired in the U.K. on Thursday night. However, this footage did not air in the U.S. version which aired Friday night on MSNBC.

Murray's delay in calling 911 was a key topic during his manslaughter trial -- but ultimately, his attorneys never put on any evidence to support the explanation Murray mentions in the documentary.

The doc goes on to say he would have quit working for MJ if he woke up that morning -- because Murray believes what happened to Jackson was the result of "his own hands."

Yeah, he was so well "trained" that he couldn't even do CPR right - he did it ONE HANDED and on a BED as opposed to a flat surface, which also contributed to MJ not being able to be revived. This doctor is in jail now, where he belongs.

Dr.Murray did not prescribe Heroin,Cocain,Marijuana or anything nearly like thatto support any drug habit as he was portrayed at trial..MJ was worst of all addicts and was sexually deranged.

There was no way MJ was going to submit himself to rehab.He was an insomnic like most of us and he needed sleep like the rest of us to function minimally particularly when you have a 50 million dollar contract to perform. His brain was all fried up. No sleeping pill was going to touch him. He needed a strong hypnotic ( sleeping med.) like Propofol to knock him out quickly without turning and tossing in bed for hours or waking up in between and starting day all too tired up.

Dr. Murray had no choice but to give him Propofol. It is not illegal to administer Propofol in home setting as long as it is administered by or under the supervision of a physician such as Dr. Murray and the person is monitored for any respiratory difficulties. Nonetheless, there was no crime in home administeration of Propofol.

It was never proven at trial,why MJ arrested and could not be revived.Just because Dr. Murray was not able to resuscitate MJ does not constitute malpractice let alone manslaughter.

With lynching mob outside,jury was not going to ruin the peace of their minds and lives by crazed morons haunting them into oblivion by finding Dr. Murray not guilty.

Jury knew what had happened to Casey Anthony's jury which is still in hiding. Finally,a poor Black man was unjustly targetted for the misdeeds of a very sick old man.

Who says there is no such thing as celebrity injustice?

The real reason for not calling 911,because Dr Murray knew is was committing a medical no,no.His own words tell me why I never liked "Involuntary Manslaughter"Murray had FULL KNOWLEDGE,his actions could lead to DEATH,and if that happened,Murray was ready with "it is Michael's fault"so while the women and the money were for the taking,life was good for Dr Murray.He also admitted he was out of the room more than 2 min,All that was asked of Dr Murray for $150,000.00 a mouth,was to monitor his pt Michael Jackson,With NO EQUIPMENT,which EMT'S have,and to make a comment,he was there,no need for EMT,scares the hell out of me.I hope all his pts that came to court to say what a good Dr Murray was saw his interview,and THANK GOD,and say there but for the grace of God go I.

Well, justice has been served. He lied, he lied he lied. Conrad (& I purposely have not called you DR) please admit that you completely failed at doctoring. It's so obvious to everyone and your lies afterwards, are simply embarrassing.

He didn't call 911 Because He was Busy calling his many Girlfriends to be Concerned with what was happening with Michael Jackson even though He kept saying "Michael Was a Close Personal Friend I loved him" Yeah Loved him to Death *Literally* he was More Into Saving His Butt... ARROGANT SOB he needs to Locked up for more then 4 Years In My opinion

Dr. Murray did not kill Michael Jackson.


Michael Jackson had over a 25 year pharm junkie head start. Jackson turned himself into a freak.

Vitaligo. What ever Ok. Supposed skin blotches turned into a complete.

@Californiadesi Seriously? Are you really able to ignore all the evidence presented? At the very least, as a 'first-responder' I can back up everything that was presented... CM failed spectacularly at resuscitation and anyone in the field would agree.

oh here's another d eucie from the defense..

notice when they were around the dining table--as the lawyers looked at MJ's bedroom pics.. how messy it was? I think flanagan said.. if they expose those to media & in court.. it will definitely sway us against Michael..

I have NEWS.. for them.. late as it is.. MJ fans always knew he kept a messy room.. MJ's own mother Katherine exposed this.. that she got so fed up she had a maid cleaned up his messy.. MJ cried.. Latoya also made comments about this.. his bedroom at Neverland & that condo in century City..

and if anyone got really close to Michael? IT WAS BILL BRAY! & Bill never betrayed Michael.. if anyone could have written a book about MJ.. it could have him.. as he was there from Mj at 11 until he was when around 1996/ bill BRay saw the glory days of Michael Jackson.

so Conrad Murray can shove it!

Californiadesi---You are VERY,VERY,WRONG.Dr,remember I am saying DR Murray did have a choice,but Murray saw EASY MONEY,and FAME for himself Going into the MEDICAL PROFESSION,is a vocation,NOT A JOB,I find NO COMPASSION,for Michael as a human being,only a means to a end,money.The choice is JUST SAY NO,and if Michael found someone else,YOU walk away KNOWING You did nothing to HARM,If propofol was given in a home setting(which should NEVER happen)with trained medical assistance ,proper medical equipment,two or more medical professionals attending,and Michael died,I would call that "Involuntary Manslaughter"I cannot believe this man has a M.D. after his name.OUT OF HIS OWN MOUTH,he lacks KNOWLEDGE,COMPASSION.ETHICS.

Did i miss something? Wasn't it the "trained" cardiologist Murray who gave the dying Michael a cardiac massage on his bouncy mattress instead of lying the body initially on a solid ground?
The Jacksons should sue him for every nickel he is sacking up during the rest of his pathetic live.

Because trying to give someone CPR on a bed with one hand is totally what trained cardiologists would do.
