Good comment, Gail. I add, though, that there were interviews with people who talked about how badly he didn't want to do 50. One woman who didn't know him, a fan, said that she was shocked when he said to her that they were killing him with these 50 concerts that they were making him do. She thought it was strange that he would feel that someone was "making" him do concerts. The doctor is of course responsible for his part, Michael is responsible for not getting off drugs, but the people who I think absolutely did not have Michael's welfare at heart were the promoters. As you said, anybody could see the frailty and the drug addiction and the anorexia. These promoters knew who they were dealing with. The interviews that I saw said that Micheal told them that he absolutely did not want to do the 50 and they came down on him about money that he owed....the promoters and Tohm. I feel that the promoters were out for blood. Someone on a show that I saw said that the promoters AEG knew that with the insurance that they had on him, they would make money if he were alive or dead.

As to the question about whether I lived with him, I have only been reading and watching tv, I am not trying to act like I know anything but what I saw on tv.

I doubt that very much Jina... I think Dark Island is a closet MJ fan did you see how many post he has made.
There is no reason to show malice for someone like MJ considering he art.No one in the world was like him in our lifetime.
You really don't get it,do you.
No one takes into consideration the chandler's fathers telephone conversations
No takes into the condsideration that the second alligations were involved in welfare fraud.What does that say about them.
I like to see some background on these people before I cruicify MJ and tare him apart by his looks of his mistakes,of his drugs.MIchael Jackson is beyond our comprehension.
Did you see what the Colobine kids did to their classmates who they constantly tortured by?
Did you see Michael's face from constantly being tortured by family and the press.
I am sorry but Michael Jackson deserved a hell of lot more respect than he receieved in life.
The reason you can't totally blame him for his drugs is b/c we don't know if the doctor's were not shopping for him and the alias,His body craved or his body would have more pain the more pain the more pills the more pills the more side-affects&consequences, the more Greed

I'm not arguing with the fact that he had a drug problem... that was blatantly obvious. But I do know he had Lupus and there are sleep disorders that go along with that. Just thought it was interesting...
http://www.hss.edu/conditions_lupus-fatigue-c...
Lupus and Sleep Disorders
For those with lupus, a good night of sleep is among the most valuable activities in which one can engage in order to stay healthy and avoid symptoms of the disease like fatigue and cognitive dysfunction. Unfortunately, 61 percent of those with lupus claim that they do not feel refreshed after a night of sleep. Typically, those with lupus have sleep problems that may include any or all of the following:
* Restless sleep
* Poor sleep quality
* Sleep for too short of a duration
* Problems falling asleep
* Inability to stay asleep
Another element of sleep disorder Dr. Harrison identifies is what she calls “sleep phobia”:
“Lupus patients tend to lay awake and are concerned about not sleeping, but what happens when you’re thinking,‘Oh my God, I’m not falling asleep and I have so much to do tomorrow?’” says Dr. Harrison.“The more anxious you get, the less likely that you’ll be able to fall asleep or sleep well when you do fall asleep.”
As stated earlier, lack of sleep can lead to fatigue and can cause great anxiety, but it can also lead to feelings of depression, which can worsen the symptoms of cognitive dysfunction and make sleep more difficult, creating yet another “chicken and egg” scenario where one condition furthers the other in a reciprocal motion.
GO TO THE SITE. IT'S ACTUALLY PRETTY INTERESTING
True. Add to that the drugs used to treat Lupus and manic-depression and you have a winning combo for insomnia.

I have a lot of sympathy for MJ. He made some bad decisions in who he associated with and let into his life. He would up a drug addict and dead. At the end, his drugs kept him manic, psychotic and therefore awake.

Yea you're right. My sister in law is a nurse and has seen Diprivan or Propofol used in surgeries to put patients to sleep. The patient's vitals are supposed to be monitored continuously because it can make you stop breathing... which seems to unfortunately obviously be the case here. I just cant believe how there could be so many unethical doctors out there.
Well with Propofol the person drifts off in about ten seconds at which time he is intubated and a machine breathes for him. The other monitors are there too yes. Then the person gets paralyzed with succ and vec. All this makes it more safe to take the Propofol. I'm guessing, MJ did not have these. He was on a number of other medications and became distressed and died. At least he died fairly quickly and without too much pain.

Murray should not have administered controlled drugs and Propofol to MJ. He was not a candidate for any of them. Because Murray failed as a doctor, MJ died and everybody was deprived. MJ lost his life and his children. The family lost father, brother, son and uncle. The world lost a person it needed for his charitable contributions.'Tis horrible all round.

Michael Jackson 's personal doctor was in financial trouble when he signed on with the late singer, the Associated Press reports. Dr. Conrad Murray owed a total of at least $780,000 in judgments against him and his medical practice, outstanding mortgage payments on his house, delinquent student loans, child support and credit cards.

Wow what a horrible man... he totally fed off of Michael's drug addiction... He should definitely go to jail. This is a scary thought that this guy was a doctor

Thats all true but my sister in law said and I also read that even with all the necessary precautions people can still stop breathing... she said it's happened in her office. She also said that when Diprivan or Propofol is administered there's usually about 4 to 5 people in the room between the the anesthesiologist, doctors and nurses.
