Dr. Murray stopped CPR on MJ to hide drugs

michael_jacksonDocuments obtained by the Associated Press reveal that Michael Jackson‘s logistics director, Alberto Alvarez, who made the 911 call on the day Jackson died, claims that while Jackson lay dying in his bedroom, Dr. Murray, who was performing CPR using only one hand, stopped so he could hand Alvarez drug vials to put in a plastic bag, and then had him put the plastic bag in a canvas bag. Alvarez was also asked to remove the IV that was attached to Jackson, which contained a milky liquid (the powerful sedative, Propofol) and put the IV in another bag. Alvarez told investigators that when he first entered the room, Jackson’s mouth and eyes were wide open. He also said Jackson’s two oldest children, Prince and Paris, came into the room and began crying but were quickly ushered away. Alvarez also told police Dr. Murray was running around the room hiding bottles of Propofol in a closet. Police later found the bottles in a a secret compartment of the closet. Jackson’s death was ruled a homicide.

    Dr Murray should fry for his crime! Bad enough what he did to Michael, but think of the impact on his loved ones, especially those three children!

    Manslaughter my a$$,this was flat out MURDER in my opinion!!!

  4. Rita • March 24, 2010 @ 4:01 AM

    I just knew there was something going on that didn’t add up to 2 & 2 = 4!! I kept thinking Why didn’t he do this and Why didn’t he do that?? I’m not a doctor but I’m knowledgeable about some medicine & different things! Alvaraz was an accomplice but I hope they give him a very light sentence or lengthy Community Service!! Because of Him, we Now know what happened!!! It would be too much agony to go through Life Not knowing what happened to Mr. Jackson! I Hope he Never Ever Gets To Be A Doctor Ever Again!

    Well Spoken Tributegirl!

    If he gets anything harsher than manslaughter, it would be completely unfair, and just goes to show that “fame” exonerates you from the law (MJ’s lawsuits/inappropriate actions throughout his life), and when you don’t have it, or go against someone who does, you’ll fall hard for it. I’m pretty sure the doc didn’t mean to KILL MJ. And, you know, MJ was not the most NORMAL PERSON. WHO KNOWS what kind of meds he wanted/fully acknowledged. The doc might have been hiding it because he KNEW he shouldn’t have given it to MJ even though he asked for it. Either way its manslaughter. This would be ridiculous if he gets 1st degree.

    To Trevor:
    What the #$%@#$ is wrong with you. Certainly no one deserves this fate. MJ or no MJ….how cynical has the world become when someone thinks that intentionally killing someone is doing anyone a favour.

    All criminal charges aside…a person’s life was lost, and in my experience it’s never a cause to celebrate.

    Gypsy, what is the criteria for second degree murder in the US?

  9. gypsy • March 25, 2010 @ 10:28 PM

    Silver,you’ll have to ask a American,I am a proud Canadian!In my opinion it stopped being manslaughter,when the DR stopped trying to save MJ and started hiding the evidence,to save his own ass!!!

  10. silver • March 26, 2010 @ 8:54 AM

    I’m confused Gypsy, how can you say it should be second degree murder if you don’t even know the definition??

  11. gypsy • March 26, 2010 @ 10:16 AM

    Silver… there are many definitions of second degree,here’s one Motive was not to kill but death happened because of person being Grossly Negligent..I’m sure you can find many more on your own!This happens to be my personal opinion,others may disagree as is their right to!

  12. gypsy • March 26, 2010 @ 10:56 AM

    quid pro quo.. Silver…why is it an Automatic First Degree Murder Charge when a copper is killed? When a person caught in the act of say, robbing a bank and had No intent at the onset of harming anybody,and the crime escalates to a shoot-out,resulting in a death of an overzealous officer??

  13. tributegirl • March 26, 2010 @ 11:55 AM

    silver, as far as I’m aware, gypsy isn’t a lawyer, just someone on here giving her opinion, like the rest of us. You seem to have a problem with that, what’s up with that?

  14. mandee • March 29, 2010 @ 12:42 AM

    Trevor on March 23, 2010 1:20 PM honey, pray to god no one says that same thing about YOU if you are ever murdered. (that is in no way a threat, im just wondering how you would feel if they said it about you or one of your loved ones after being murdered?)

    tg, gypsy, i clearly agree.

    Rita on March 24, 2010 4:01 AM alvaraz should NOT get a lesser sentence just because he admitted to what happened. imagine if someone murdered your father and had an accomplice and they gave the accomplice a less harsh sentence because he told them what happened in the room the day your father died.

    bob on March 24, 2010 10:07 AM who the hell cares if mj was “NORMAL”? do you define YOURSELF as “NORMAL”? should we treat someone that MURDERS you differently and give them a light sentence because no one in this world can be deemed “NORMAL” or does mj get special treatment because hes famous and therefore since it was a worldwide case the guy who gave mj fame (even in death) should be granted mercy in his charges?

    Diego on March 24, 2010 5:01 PM excellent comment!

    gypsy on March 25, 2010 10:28 PM WELL SAID !

    silver on March 26, 2010 8:54 AM is it EVER possible for you to comment on the article at hand? or must you ALWAYS feel the need to come on and try to demean other peoples comments? does it make you feel good about yourself to try to stress others out because you dont like their opinions or thoughts? no one asked what your opinion was on what gypsy said, perhaps you should learn to treat others and their opinions with respect instead of looking down on everyone as if your thoughts and opinions are superior to everyone that comments. you are on a gossip site, not a lets pick fights over what other people think and then try to make them feel stupid for their beliefs site. im curious, do YOU understand the difference between the 2 different types of sites?

    tg, silver has a problem on every article he/she ever goes on, this time it wasnt me because i didnt post on here yet.

  15. silver • March 29, 2010 @ 11:48 AM

    Once again Mandee, for some reason, you think I am rude and demeaning. I don’t know why you keep saying that.

    No, I don’t know the definitions of the different levels of murder in the U.S. That is why I asked gypsy. (Is it so wrong to believe that if someone says someone is guilty of second degree murder, they know what the definition is?) I don’t care what her opinion is, and I have never questioned anyone’s right to an opinion. I just want to understand the reasoning behind it.

    I like to get in discussions about pop culture. Part of people DISCUSSING something is asking questions. If you have the “right” to give your opinion, I certainly have the right to ask why, or even challenge it.

    That is how people learn.

    And you can’t have an “opinion” on the definition of second degree murder. It is fact, written in statute. You can have an opinion on whether the definition is fair, but you can’t make up your own definition.

    As for this particular article, I don’t have an opinion yet on if he is guilty, or what he may be guilty of, because I don’t think there are enough facts disclosed.

  16. mandee • March 29, 2010 @ 12:44 PM

    silver on March 29, 2010 11:48 AM i didnt mean the different levels of murder, i meant the different levels of sites, gossip vs pick on people. i find you to be rude and demeaning when you pick one specific person and pick at their comments and stress them out over their thoughts and opinions. clearly, you upset gypsy she wouldnt be trying to defend herself or always stating “its just my opinion” people shouldnt have to explain that its their opinion for people to respect or listen to what they have to say. if you choose not to agree, thats fine but why not comment on the article and then nicely comment on someone elses comment? instead of making them feel like they are being attacked. if youre not trying to be rude and demeaning, then im sorry i was so rude to you. it just gets tiring seeing everyone all stressed out over a stupid internet site because they feel like their opinion is wrong because of something snippy someone said to them. i didnt say its wrong to assume they know the definition of something they have said. i guess we will find out soon enough who is guilty and who is not. (at least, in the courts eyes!)

  17. gypsy • March 30, 2010 @ 8:42 AM

    Silver… MY definition of second degree is a fact written in stature!!!!Here’s another,NON-PREMEDITATED killing from a assault in which death of the victim was a distinct possibility!It helps when you grow up with 2 brothers who were coppers,one homicide detective,the other drug enforcement (undercover),add to that a daughter that has been a lawyer for 15yrs!!!!Are we DONE ????? THANKS MANDEE AND TRIBUTEGIRL,HAVING MY BACK IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!!As far as I’m concerned,there are NO right OR wrong OPINIONS!!!

  18. tributegirl • March 30, 2010 @ 6:31 PM

    gypsy, I think that was the best comment I’ve ever read on here!!! WELL SAID!!!
