      It's not looking good for the Doc at the moment.

      Well that's that then. Michael Jackson didn't accidentally kill himself. Guess they should have come up with a better defense.

      To my way of thinking anyone pumping drugs into themselves,whether self administered or with someone else's help,then they are equally to blame for their own death.

      I think they were trying to say there was no way he could have self administered this particular drug. Though I see your point. If Michael gave permission for the drug to be administered then he was at least partially guilty. Though I'm guessing he was leaving dosage up to the Doctor.

      The drug that Michael was using was not to be administered outside of a hospital, as I understand it, because it had to be monitored. If you continue to use a drug, you build up an immunty to that drug, and that is probably what happened, with the final dose being too much for his body to handle. The doctor was reportedly not even licensed, but he was paid for his services, which he accepted. A lot of blame to go around as I see it, including the entire family. They should have intervened to try to get help for Michael, as he was on a destructive path. The doctor should have refused, to keep giving him the drugs, which then would have kept him out of the courtroom, facing the charges he is facing. Michael bears a lot of responsibility for his own death, by the things that he kept doing to himself. No one forced him to take those sleep inducing drugs. He was a skeleton, and no one tried to stop him from his destructive habits. The family and others want a scapegoat, and the doctor stepped into the spot. A terrible tragedy, more than likely an accident, but others need to look at themselves as well.

      The funny thing is that the Doc. will go jail for 4 years for killing MJ and according the the SOPA and ACTA anyone downloading a track of MJ from the net will get 5 year at least :D

      That's true calanau and it doesn't sound too great that :) doesn't seem like a fair world when you put it that way and also the fact that the Dr will serve half that really does make it worse.

      Yeah that's the sad truth, because downloading music 'illegally' is far worse then murdering a human being.....I swear the government is full of ****ing idiots!

      I just know he was sent to jail, he never had a chance for not guilty.

      Sent to jail, four years was not enough! He was charged with manslaughter, for not taking proper care of Michael whilst he was being treated and for illegally treating him with the anaesthetic that was not meant to be used outside of a proper operating theatre!

      Just purely because he was using the drug propofol away from a hospital which wasn't allowed I feel should have given him a higher sentence especially after the amount he had been ordering.
