Although owning this blog makes me a part of the media, I am only concerned with the facts and evidence presented (and NOT presented) in this trial and plan to make a CLEAR distinction between verifiable facts and my PERSONAL opinion. My OPINION is… this trial is not about whether or not Conrad Murray is Dr. Evil, Dr. Good-doer, or something in between. This trial is also not about defining if Michael Jackson is a drug addict. What this trial IS about is deciding if Conrad Murray executed the action that subsequently caused Michael Jackson’s death. Let’s stay focused here. If Murray is indeed guilty, I hope that justice will prevail and he will properly sentenced. If he is NOT, again, I hope justice will prevail and he will be set free.
As for how I FEEL (again, my OPINION) about Murray’s defense that Jackson injected himself with propofol, I find that proposition to be absurd. According to news reports, Murray stated he gave Jackson a dose of propofol, went to the bathroom and returned to find Jackson after he had given himself another amount. I doubt that someone who is already in a heavy, drug induced state would be able to properly self-submit propofol. The defense team has the burden of proof.
