Michael Jackson’s Doctor Goes To Trial, Says Pop Star Gave Himself The Lethal Dose
Dr. Conrad Murray has been under fire since the death of the great legend Michael Jackson, who died of an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol. Prosecutors are trying to prove negligence on Murray’s part and get him sentenced with Manslaughter, but the defense is saying that Jackson administered the lethal dosage himself while the Doctor’s back was turned. According to People, Prosecutors showed a video of Michael Jackson right before his death, with slurred speech from the drugs, talking about his ‘This Is It’ tour.
“When people leave my show, I want them to say, ‘I’ve never seen nothing like this in my life,’ ” Jackson says. “Go. Go. I’ve never seen nothing like this. Go. It’s amazing. He’s the greatest entertainer in the world.”
Seen here, the Jackson family attends Michael’s involuntary manslaughter trial at the Los Angeles Superior Court on September 27th in downtown Los Angeles, California. The family was seen holding back tears throughout testimony and holding hands as Dr. Murray sat with his attorney. It’s sad that this is still going on so far after Michael Jackson’s death. The people to really feel badly for are his children. Prince Michael seems like a way nice kid. Let’s hope he can have a successful career and family of his own someday.
