    Michael Jackson's death ruled homicide

    Coroner rules Jackson’s death a homicide - Michael Jackson- msnbc.com

    Although from the article, I can't figure how they are coming to that conclusion. Unconfirmed sources and the ever present "not authorized to talk about it".

    But, there ya go....

    I think it's because the doctor gave him "lethal" levels of propofol, but I'm not sure. I am also unaware of if they have rules about using propofol outside of a clinical setting - if not, they should.

    Perhaps. It's a poor article. I like how they refer to Murray, before they state who he is.

    "Dateline NBC's Josh Mankiewicz confirmed that Murray is the target of a manslaughter probe."

    Who? Later they note he's the personal physician.

    The odd thing is that it sounds like several other doctors prescribed it as well. Seems like you can use it outside a clinical setting. But who knows. (not sure I care, either. )

    Re: Michael Jackson's death ruled homicide

    I actually couldn't make much out of that article, either, so I went to here:

    Coroner's preliminary finding: Jackson overdosed on propofol - CNN.com

    I'm not entirely sure how this all works, either - they apparently presumed that everyone knows who this doctor is, which I don't think a lot of people care enough to know. :)

    Re: Michael Jackson's death ruled homicide

    I'm so sick of hearing about this.It rivals the putrid feeling I have when I hear about Brett Farve.

    2 freaks+ a rumor+ jr. High journalism+ idiots that believe everything+ I could keep going= get that same putrid feeling.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Re: Michael Jackson's death ruled homicide

    On one hand, it seems like a stretch to go from manslaughter to homicide. On the other hand, if the article is correct on what Murray says he gave Jackson, (injections at 1:30, 2, 3, several more drugs over next few hours, yet another injection at 10:40) the homicide charge seems more realistic.

    I don't think a person has to know or even care about Michael Jackson to be interested in this as a possible "true crime" story.

    Re: Michael Jackson's death ruled homicide

    This just in, Michael Jackson still dead per the AP. So just to clarify Michael Jackson yes is still dead.

    Also on another note Obama just farted per NBC. Also per Brian Williams yes it did stink a little. :)

    Move on......

    Homicide does not equal murder. A homicide is a situation where one human being kills another and may not even be illegal (acts of war, self defense, etc).

    I think this just means he didn't die of natural causes and the next step in the investigation will be to see if there was any negligence or intent to charge someone with something like manslaughter or murder.

    Michael Jackson? I couldn't find anything on the internet other than wiki. It said, and I quote, "Michael Jackson is dead." What am I missing?
