Conrad Murray went to prison for killing Michael Jackson (a manslaughter charge) but he’s insisting he didn’t kill him; that Jackson did it himself, because he was drug addict. He’s got an especially detailed defense. Here’s what he told Daily Mail, via Extra:
I did not kill Michael Jackson. He was a drug addict. Michael Jackson accidentally killed Michael Jackson… I never gave Michael anything that would kill him.
You want to know how close we were? I held his penis every night to fit a catheter because he was incontinent at night. Michael trusted no one. The bed chamber smelled because he did not even let maids in there to clean it. There were clothes strewn everywhere.
I tried to protect him but instead I was brought down with him.
Dude, don’t even. Yeah, MJ was a grown man, but you were his doctor and he was your patient, and good doctors don’t usually let their patients die. Maybe you didn’t personally give them to him, but he should not have been left alone with drugs that you knew were possibly lethal if left with someone who isn’t a doctor. Also, you should have immediately called 9/11 instead of his bodyguards and then his damn children. I blame Conrad Murray 100%. I know he didn’t do it on purpose, but he did it.
Regardless, he’s out of prison now.
