According to a new report from TMZ, Michael Jackson’s personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense strategy in his upcoming manslaughter trial will be to claim that Michael killed himself — by giving himself the dose of Propofol that caused his death.

In Dr. Conrad Murray’s upcoming trial on involuntary manslaughter charges, he’ll attempt to defend himself by claiming that Michael Jackson actually took the lethal dose of hospital-grade anesthetic Propofol that caused his heart to stop on June 25, 2009.

According to TMZ’s report, Dr. Murray will claim that on the night of MJ’s death,  he stepped out of the room where he and MJ were sitting in for just two minutes. Then, “Jackson suddenly awakened and was frustrated he had spent nearly 9 hours trying in vain to sleep … Jackson took the 20 ml bottle of Propofol and self-injected the remaining contents through the IV, causing a massive overdose that stopped his heart.”

Do you believe that MJ could have done all this in just 120 seconds? Will this theory hold water in court?

Having years of experience with propofol, it is possible that taking into account the way the doctor had hung the tubing, and the type of tubing it was…here’s an entirely possible scenerio. The Doctor gives him a small amount, Jackson wakes up and complains. The doctor asks him to wait (or whatever) The Doctor has the propofol hanging in the drip….but that is clamped off. (there was no pump to regulate the amount) All Jackson would have had to do is reach up and open the clamp…and lay down, you could do that in seconds. The propofol free flows in and kills Jackson. The doctor thinking Jackson has had no propofol since his last dose when he was awake….is not near by…or could have been close, just not in the room. Jackson would have been dead in minutes. Doctor finds him, realizes what has happened and panicked. It’s completely possible. The Doctor is still completely guilty of gross negligence…no proper equipment including an IV pump, among other already mentioned items. A better pulse-ox machine, and ekg monitor, all with alarms. The way the doctor hung the propofol was in itself grossly negligent.

That’s a sad defense. He should really come up with something else. I look forward to seeing “Gone Too Soon”. I hope that movie digs deeper into the Michael Jackson death case. We don’t seem to be getting the truth from anyone else.

I don’t care about Michael Jackson…I never EVER liked his music. But truth be told, Michael Jackson, in the long run, did kill himself. To blame Conrad Murray is a joke. Yes, he was Michael Jackson’s Doctor…he should have told Jackson, “NO” when Jackson continued to ask for stronger drugs but he didn’t…then again, who has ever said, “NO” to Michael Jackson? Nobody. Michael’s family KNEW he was addicted to numerous different drugs, mainly prescription drugs from what I have read and heard (even on Oprah, Janet J. admitted this), and they tried MANY times to intervene. Michael Jackson wouldn’t listen…he never listened to anybody…he was an egotistical jerk. Yes, Conrad Murray is in the wrong for listening to Michael Jackson and doing whatever Michael Jackson told him to do…but he did not kill Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson, like all other drug addicts who have died, killed himself. Plain and simple.

Unfortunately it IS possible that Michael did self administer more propofol to himself-it could have been as easy as releasing the clamp on his IV that was already in place. If Dr Murray had given him only one eighth of the bottle-25mg-it is highly unlikely he would have suddenly given him the whole remaining seven eighths of the bottle all at once-knowing that massive dose would kill Michael. On the other hand Michael-already under the influence, maybe frustrated, perhaps feeling safe having a Dr in attendance, opened that clamp on the IV himself. It is likely we will Never Know beyond a shadow of a doubt, what happened.

I guess the doctor was the last straw to break the camels back……it would have happened sooner or later, with all the medicin mj took = system going down and he was not getting younger…..

This is over the top but MJ’s doctor should self administer the fatal dose of propofol to himself… what a crock he is.
