Michael Jackson’s Doctor Accepting Patients

Celebrity, Crime

On the first anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, his father – Joe Jackson – has filed a wrongful death lawsuit in Federal court against Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor that was at his son’s bedside the day he died.

The pop star’s cause of death determined an overdose of propofol (a powerful anesthesia) by the Los Angeles County Coronor,  has left a dark cloud hanging over Dr. Murray.  He has already been charged with involuntary manslaughter – on top of reports accusing him of trying to cover up what really happened, giving different stories to authorities and ultimately neglecting to follow required medical procedures and protocols.

So after all of this, what do you think he is doing? Free on $75,000 bail, he is still practicing medicine.

Only  restricted from administering propofol; because a judge denied requests to ban his medical license, Dr. Murray is seeing patients at his clinics in Houston, Texas and Las Vegas, Nevada, and can practice in California if he wishes.

On the other side, taking away his income as a doctor would be a “death nail” in Murray’s defense, because he then could not afford to pay for his lawyers or expert witnesses, a spokeswoman for the defense team said. Dr. Murray himself has also come out and said the truth will prevail, maintaining he did nothing wrong.

What do you think about Dr. Murray still practicing medicine? Would you be comfortable with him as your doctor?
