Janet Jackson: Dr. Conrad Murray Killed Michael

by at . Comments

In an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts, Janet Jackson is not holding back when it comes to Dr. Conrad Murray, the man she believes killed her brother Michael.

Of Michael Jackson's former personal physician, the target of an LAPD homicide investigation, Janet says: "He was administering ... I think he is responsible."

Dr. Conrad Murray has admitted to administering Propofol, a powerful anesthetic, to Michael Jackson to help him sleep, but claims he didn't kill the King of Pop.

In the interview, airing Wednesday, Janet says Murray, who may face manslaughter or even murder charges, should no longer be allowed to practice medicine.

Of Michael's death, she adds "It's been a tough year ... You have your days where it's just hard to believe. And a day doesn't go by that I don't think about him."

Janet Jackson is opening up about her brother's tragic death.

She recalled the fateful day of June 25, when she learned her brother passed away. "I was at my house in New York. You know, another day. Another morning."

"Then I get a call ... [my assistant] said, 'Your brother's been taken to the hospital. It's on CNN right now. I called everyone. I spoke to mother. I spoke to my brother Tito. I spoke to my nephew Austin. I spoke to my sister La Toya."

A tearful Janet Jackson added, "I told them to call me when they got to the hospital. And I remember thinking nobody's calling me back, so I tried calling again, and that's how I found out that he was no longer ... I couldn't believe it."

"It just didn't ring true to me. It felt like a dream. It's still so difficult for me to believe. It's, you know, you have to accept what is. But it's so hard. You have to move on with your life. You have to accept what is and I understand that."

MDr. Murray is GUILTY. I am a Registered Respiratory Therapsist with 11 years experience; and YOU DO NOT USE PORPOFOL OUTSIDE OF THE ICU OR THE OPERATING ROOM. why?????? because it is an anesthetic, and YOU DO NOT BREATH !!! He is such an idiot, he did'nt even have enough sense to have a resuscitation bag, NARCAN ( a drug used to reverse the effects of narcotics, or a ventilator. WHAT was he doing giving that to MJ in a private home. I don't care if he cried crocodile tears for it, the drug is too dangerous and he is a MD and knows better. And lastly what MD does not know how to do CPR? Even little kids can do CPR. He should be sent to prison so the prisoners who grew up listening to MJ's music can make every day a living hell and don't let him forget what he took from the world.......... I hope he is convicted because he is incompetant and an idiot!! Loosing MJ has left a hole in my heart, and I wish I could beat his ass myself......

The world has lost one of the greatest performers. Doctors have a set of ethics which must prevail in medicine. Murray should spend life in prison paying for his lack of judgement regarding Michael Jackson. Sadly, MJ will spend his life unable to defend himself. However, I know justice will prevail if Murray spends time in prison, he will probably not live to see release. Criminals have a set of moral values. Michael and his family will have justice and closure soon.
