Dr. Conrad Murray

Help, I'm Dying in Jail!!!

Dr. Conrad Murray
is pulling a Floyd Mayweather Jr. -- pleading with a judge to spring him from L.A. County Jail because it's taking an extreme physical toll on his body ... and if he doesn't get help soon, Murray believes he'll DIE behind bars.

But here's the crazy thing -- unlike Mayweather, Murray's not asking for house arrest (he knows that will never happen) ... Murray's asking to be sent to PRISON, where he believes he'll get better care.

Murray's lawyer tells TMZ, he wants to serve out his time in the big house because he's being treated like filth in L.A. County jail -- getting fresh air once a month, and fresh underwear once a WEEK.

As a result of the alleged deprivation, we're told Murray's health is failing -- his hair, nails, and skin are gnarly  ... and he's been suffering from a constant headache over the last few weeks.

Murray says he's never gotten headaches in the past -- and is worried it might be a brain tumor.

We're told Murray asked to see a doctor, but got shuffled around and has received no medical attention.

Murray told his attorney, Valerie Wass, "I may not make it out of here alive. This is a very dangerous place. I'm in here dying. The system is intent on killing me."

A rep for the L.A. County Sheriff's Department tells us, the department doesn't comment on pending cases.

Ah the doc doesn't like it behind bars. Isn't the jail to your liking? Bad food? Clean chonies once a week? The maid doesn't come in to clean your cell? You got a headache & diagnosed yourself with a possible bran tumor? That's what you get for being a quack.

Idiot thinks we care.

Give me a break. He's not dying. He just misses his old lifestyle. Can't feel sorry for him though. It's nobody's fault but his own that he is there. For the love of money people will risk everything they have & worked hard for, including their own life. I personally could care less about this man.

What I wanted to comment is already said; give the man some propofol to give him a good night sleep. For all eternity.

LA county jail is a bad place for those that have a long time to wait for freedom. for those with short sentences, it can be a real wake-up call. The place is hell though. Racial segregation, apples and peanutbutter envelopes, no clean clothes, maybe weekly cold showers, cold most of the time, metal platforms to sleep on, no pillows. Might as well shoot him.

He has had a headache for a while and thinks he has a brain tumor? Whatta nut. Prison's fine. County jail is fine. Anywhere but free. He doesn't deserve to be treated special. He killed someone.
