if Michael administered propofol himself, it'd be another story.
i don't think MJ was a long term addict, his autopsy shows otherwise...
also he didn't seem to have trouble functioning in his work and taking care of his children so i haven't seen the signs of a 'die hard addict'
even if Murray did everything in a hospital setting it'd still be a crime. i don't understand how propofol is a safe option for combating sleeping problems. Murray wasn't qualified administer sedatives, he failed to use the proper equipment to monitor his patient and left his patient alone which resulted in his patient getting a fatal dose of an anesthetic. having a medical license doesn't give someone a free pass to put their patients in dangerous situations regardless of who that patient is.
i can't say much about the Amy Winehouse comparisons since i didn't follow her personal life (details of drug use) as much her music. it just seems like a completely different situation to me but they are often compared because they are loved musicians who passed away way too young. i supposed the defining factor here between the two would be if they administered drugs to themselves or if it was administered by / was in the care of medical professionals.

i agree, people always talk about bias but i think the jurors just have to focus on what will be presented in the case and make their decision based on that

^You are right, of course. There is no real evidence that he had that kind of problem - except for his ex-wife's descriptions of his life and the fact that he had a lot of the common substitutes in his system (referring to the autopsy report which cites benzos).
I think in this case whether MJ was an addict or not is irrelevant or at least not the main point. People should lay off implying that he deserved to die because he was reckless and therefore whatever other people did didn't matter. He freakin already paid the price with his life! This trial is about a doctor who was negligent and caused his patient's death.
If ya feel real good wave your hands in the air
and lick two shots in the atmosphere!
People need to realize or know that this whole ''Michael administered propofol to himself'' scenario appeared only this year as Murray's last hope to get away with it. There was no talk or any suspicion of Michael doing such thing in '09 or 10 even by Murray's team, and believe me I've been following this thing since June 25th of 2009. They are lying, lying, lying.
^Definitely. In the autopsy report it's even mentioned that he probably couldn't have administered it himself, even in theory. Nevermind with the benzos in his system - he would be bogged down plenty from that alone.
Jeisa, when you said ex-wife, are you referring to LMP? i remember her saying something about him acting funny but it's kind of vague so i don't really know what to make of it.
MelBelle, i agree with you. anyone who has been following from the start remembers when Murray's team started making up stuff about Michael administering propofol to himself. there were also so many ridiculous reports claiming a lot of random drugs that weren't actually found in his system / autopsy reports.

Why did Murray have a recording of Michael in that state? What was he trying to do with it?
i think i saw what you saw on TMZ
it's even worse for Murray if he thought his patient already had issues then why continue...
from my understanding this case is being aired on television(what channel?)...unfortunately i don't have time to watch television or at least live. i've been reading about this case between my classes so i can't get too heavily into it when i'm in public * sigh *
