How is Dr.Murray any different than a drug dealer. Why else would Michael Jackson pay that kind of money than to obtain drugs you other wise could not obtain legally

Do you know if LA Police responds with Fire and EMS? I asked this because I was a former Fire Fighter and PD would respond to medical calls. I am curious because it may have made a difference in the facts.
I have seen many bodys and if the EMS saw what they said, they should have advised PD on the scene. Its the same as if they were called for a man down on the Street it becomes a crime scene right then and there.

Also have 15 years as a Ca. state certified S/O. If the SOs for Michael were certified they would have taken charge and called 911 without Murrays permission when he entered the room.
maybe I have more experience then they did. Security made this case possible by locking down the crime scene

What do you or your panel

As a mother, I have had a few "emergency" situations with my children where I have called 911 or have taken my children to a doctor or hospital. I was the one panicked! If I saw the doctor, EMTs or emergency room personnel "frantic", I would lose all faith in those systems that are put in place for our care. The fact that Dr. Murray was frantic and panicked, tells me a lot about his ability as a physician. He should have been able to go into "Doctor" mode. Rather he went into panic mode because he was trying save his own butt! Guilty!!

One Paramedic indicated that he saw a white substance at the bottom of an empty IV bag. This to me means that Dr. Murray was administering the medication via a continuous drip. In that situation there is a roller clamp on the IV line to adjust the flow being given. This is a way that a patient can self administer more mediation just by opening the roller clamp to full flow while the doctor was out of the room. I believe that Dr, Murray is a caring person and he cares for his patients but he messed up big time and tried to cover it up. He did not keep notes that is why he does not know the times the other medications were given. Dr. Murray does not follow rules and that is why he is where he is today. You don't have non licensed workers running your clinic, You should always have the drug Narcan available when giving drugs to counteract the effects should a reaction occurs. He lied to obtain the Medication in question, lied about giving it. If the paramedics knew about the Propopol , they could have given the Narcan on site

The defense is really getting flustered trying to get to the Doctors. They haven't come close to impeaching anyone's testimony as far as I have seen, the "Dream Team" they are not.
I can't believe that the max this quack can get is only 4 years! He administered a drug that can cause respiratory collapse, which leads to death if not immediately responded to by competent people.
It was interesting today when it was ascertained that he didn't have any RNs or LPNs working at his Las Vegas office; one of his staff was asked by prosecution. This dude sure plays it lose...

I'm wondering if the jury finds Dr. Murray guilty, can the juries recommend Increasing the amount of years that Dr. Murray in jail?

Any remorse? i think Dr. Murray should receive more jail time than what is expected. not only did he try to cover his BUTT, but tried to cover the FOUL act that he commited!
