Katherine Jackson

Hurts to Hear MJ Called

'Freak'

Katherine Jackson testified in her wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live ... it's devastating to hear witnesses and lawyers refer to her dead son as "lazy" and a "freak."

She said, "It's hard to sit here in court and listen to all these things ... My son was sick and nobody was trying to help him."

When she met Dr. Conrad Murray -- the man who killed MJ with a fatal dose of Propofol -- she said she immediately thought the doc WASN'T the right person to care for her son.

She said, "My son needed another doctor."

Katherine is trying to prove AEG was negligent in hiring and supervising Dr. Murray, and is therefore responsible for the singer's death.

Stop trying to deflect blame onto others!
.
Michael Jackson - was solely responsible for his own choices and decisions - including abusing drugs.

Can she honestly say she didn't think he was a freak? Come on. Motherly love can only be blind to a point.

Of course it does. No mother wants to hear their child insulted and belittled. Also to all of those saying MJ is responsible for his own death...it doesn't matter how addicted to Propofol he was, nor how much he demanded/ paid for the Dr. to give it to him. Dr. Murray, as a licensed medical professional, had a duty to refuse to administer treatment that is unsafe. This is why we have trained professionals giving these drugs as opposed to allowing folks to medicate themselves. There are patients that will take any and all pain killers/sedatives that we can give them. It is our job to say NO. MJ was responsible for his own choices and his addiction but no Dr. in their right mind should be admistering Propofol in a patients' home. I am glad he is in prison.

This woman now has all the answers and feels totally capable of handling all that money. So how come she couldn't do something about getting her son some help if she knew he was sick? Greed. That whole family is sickening is greedy and sickening.

The family only cared that he was pumping money out to take care of them all. If Katherine wants to hold anyone responsible, then how about 1/3 of the blame to the family, 1/3 to MJ himself, and the other 1/3 to Conrad Murray for placating a drug addict. Katherine can sue Murray for the $ an hour he makes folding prison laundry.

No mother wants to hear the truth. No wonder his children are all screwed up. Too many family members were only around for the money.

FIRST OFF they were HER OWN lawyers who ALSO dared to insult Michael Jackson and she did NOT at all seem to be bothered since they did it in order to convince the jury they are right and she should get AEG's money. THEN it was ALL good for greedy unnatural mother Katherine!!! She TOO couldn't care less about Michael's well-being, she only thought to ask him more money for HER economic well-being. She even went against all of his wishes regarding the raising of his beloved children!!! She was ready to exploit them from the very start and when she had largely contributed to make damages, lastly said "she had no idea of how to deal" "with someone in Paris' situation". Without any morality and without any shame. THEN she herself insulted him by calling him sick. She is as disgusting as them. NO surprise there. Michael Jackson suffered from insomnia, a serious problem and was NOT sick but leeches like her around him are beyond sick and disgusting. ANYTHING for money, no matter what as always and above all.

Maybe Michael would have grown up to a different kind of person if she didn't just sit back and watch Joe and others torment and abuse her child from birth....
