I say BULL!, get him out of the profession before he hurts anyone else, let him go stand on a corner like any other dealer.

Haha yeah and so should all the other thousands of doctors peddling pain meds while making millions. There will be a lot of out of work doctors and busy street corners that's for sure.

Nita
And i think i agree with you. You uphold to do the right thing for your patient as a Medical Licensed Doctor. If you cannot say no to your patient when it is for their own good, You have no business being a Doctor. I think in this case, it was what was not done, and there was plenty that was not done right.

What was done was adding fuel to the fire, and walking away from the fire!

This was not about Jackson's Character flaws, but a Doctor who was very negligent, in how he treated this patient. Very very irresponsible, and very recklessly. Administer a highly dangerous drug without monitoring the patient, come on now.

No, violated proper procedures in dispensing a highly dangerous drug so recklessly and irresponsibly that in causing MJs death that most certainly constitute manslaughter.

I heard that on the radio and tried to get a live reaction on MSNBC, the only news channel ( well, sort of) the kitchen TV can get while we ate dinner. As usual it had Chris Matthews and some left wing pundit talking about the republican candidates. I guess MSNBC has dropped most news coverage for Obama's re election campaign.
I thought Murray would get off. I thought he used poor judgement in dealing with Jackson, the man was obviously a danger to himself and not someone easy to be around. But I don't think his careless actions rose to the level of manslaughter. Jackson had a whole house surrounding him of those who knew he needed help and did nothing for him. Family, employees, business associates, his handlers. They were just as guilty as the doctor, why aren't they facing charges?

Murray was as guilty as an anesthesiologist would have been if a patient died while an anesthesiologist was performing a heart catheterization in his garage.

A drug addict who found a willing doctor, an only too willing doctor.

Seems both got what they deserved. Justice has prevailed.

Wow people can be so cold...Jackson was an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime talent. Yes- he was also a drug abuser and responsible for his own death. To me that is SAD.
The Dr. allowed lethal doses of medicine to be available to Jackson without proper supervision. He is guilty of manslaughter, and got the proper verdict in my opinion.
The whole thing is needless and sad. Certainly nothing to rejoice about.
