"Poor MJ's" father should also be on trial for making all of his kids "crazy" for fame and attention. This trial surely will allow Michael's family make even more money on his death.

His speech was slurred but I do not know the cause. Alcohol is more readily accessible than anesthesia and causes slurred speech. Besides if Michael was on anesthesia he would be uncounscious and not speak at all, let alone breathe on his own. This is a circus show to detract from the real tradgedy here.

The tradgedy is a man with a hsitory os drug addiction died at the hands of a doctor who wanted his money and chose to do wrong things to that man to get the money. It is rather simple. Cheers!

There are other 'treatments' that cause slurring speech, like the ones Michael was given by Klein. I want to know what he gave him and why. I think Klein has a lot to answer to.

That tape that Murray taped of Michael. Was that when Michael was waking up from Murray giving him propofol. You know like when someone is coming out of surgury how they sound when they are trying to wake up. I was just wondering about that. Why would Murray tape Michael. I find that weird. Was he going to black mail him later on or something? It just seem weird that he would tape him.

murray was goning to black mail Michael he was desperate for money.Klein dosen't have any thing to do with Michael's death. Murry is the one that pulled that trigger. every thing he has said is a LIE.he should have been charged with tampering with evdince and murder.

I think that he really had a problem with sleeping. Lisa his ex wife even said he had trouble sleeping in Oprah interview.On you tube there is a video of Michael saying that he hated touring. I think he said something like he went through h-ll touring or something like that. Do you think that maybe that is why he said that because when he toured he had to use propofol to get sleep even though it does not give a person sleep? Didn't another doctor give him propofol one time when he was touring? Did he have to use that when he toured? Is that what he was talking about you think? Just a thought.

Words can never express the ordeal they are going through during this trial. They are reliving that fateful day over and over again in every hearing.

I have never been on drugs to know what it's like but listening to that tape of MJ was so frightening. That doctor is such a cold blooded criminal.

It's not like possibly the Dr. was proving a point to MJ, to show him why propofol is not a good choice for a sleeping aid - after he sobered up?

Or perhaps Murray was going to give someone else reason to intervene in Wacko's life,(like family). Of course it's not like those same people who listen to that wouldn't wonder why a doctor was giving in to Wacko's propofol use in the first place. D'oH!

Maybe AEG wanted to reason with Jacko to hire their own medical staff for him, at that particular time. Maybe they heard Murray's tape and rightly became alarmed at the seriousness of the situation. But nooooo - Wacko didn't want that. Wacko wanted Murray's help because nobody else was going to be the private 'milk' man.

Murray's going to have to testify about this if he's going to use Wacko's life as a defense. No way around not testifying about it now.

If Murray was trying to prove a point to Michael. Than Murray would have proved he was the doctor he was trained to be and would have said NO to Michael. I think that tape was Michael waking up off of the propofol like someone waking up after being operated on in a hospital. I think Murray taped him to later use that to black mail him maybe. Who really knows? I just find it strange that he would tape him. For me - I hear a person on that tape that sounds like a person that would be waking up from surgery.I don't think Murray was taping that to prove to Michael he was an addict. When Michael asked Murray to do that procedure that should have told Murray all he needed to know that Michael needed help with a sleep problem or addiction.Murray was not helping anyone. If Murray was doing anything with what he did was only put an addict life in more danger.

I think when AEG if they knew that Micheal doctor Murray was needing the things he needed that should have sent up a red light that something was not right with Michael. If Michael was healthy why would the doctor need to be with him 24/7 and why would Murray need CPR equipment and oxygen. That should have been a red light for them to know something was not right. I think they let the fame of Michael stand in the way of them saying NO or at least to see something was not right with that.

I think it should have not gotten that far. I think when Michael asked Murray to put him under with propofol that if anything should have told a doctor a person needed help and serious help that would have been it. Murray only seen money and not only did Murray aid a drug addict but Murray's stupidness killed him.
