    Yay for Jerrry Brown for doing the logical thing that the California Board of Medical Irresponsibles failed!

    Linda S- Patients die all of the time under medical care becasue it was their time...if there is some clear cut evidence of criminal wrong doing then yes they should not practice, but if you suspend every doctor who has a patient die under their care you would not have any doctors left to go to.

    Absolutely! Without a doubt! Murray cannot be trusted – he's reckless, negligent, compllacent of a doctor. Let's hope this will go through.

    Bottom line. The doctor should NOT have been using anesthesia outside of a hospital setting. He's not an anesthesiologist. He was wrong, wrong, wrong and should be suspended.

    Jerry Brown has my vote. if the doctor was indeed acting professionally, he should not have been administering a drug as powerful as propofol – while mixing it with other benzos. THIS is blatantly irresponsible. also note, that he did NOT mention to EMT or the ER doctors that he administered the propofol (all this is in an official affidavit). so no, do not try the doctor based on media accounts, stick to the facts of official documentation AND Murray's own testimony. he should NOT at under any circumstances have left the patient w/o having a nurse/assistant to leave at the bedside during breaks, provided NO resuscitating devices, or lied/ommitted details. HE is the physician, and is NOT in any way obligated to administer a drug based on (hearsay) that the patient "begged" for it. that is negligence and unprofessional behavior...which makes him a danger to the public.
    and keep in mind, Michael Jackson has brought more money into every location he has ever visited or lived in, just by his presence. so if any LA official or resident do not think that he is worth the effort due to financial reasons – they are sorely misinformed. Michael has been contributing chunks of tax money and serving the greater LA community for DECADES...and it doesn't even end with his death.

    Jerry Brown will also get my California vote. The fact that is happening so often now to high profile people is a sign that something is seriously wrong with a system that allows such unethical people to practice medicine. Doctor shopping and pharmacy shopping must be stopped to save lives. This can so easily happen to regular citizens. Your mother, my sister, our friends, etc. Conrad Murray and others like him are a danger to patients, and we lost such a magnificent person with much to live for by his hand.

    No wonder the Attorney General did this. He was running for governor. The most corrupt Cabinet post in the Federal Government is that of Attorney General. No AG should be able to run for elective office until two years after he or she is out of office. There are too many politically motivated prosecutions today.
