Defence Question Dr Shafer

Dr Conrad Murray's defence lawyer, Ed Chernoff, cross-examined Dr Steven Shafer in court.

Mr Chernoff questioned Dr Shafer's contention that Michael Jackson had been hooked up to an IV drip of the anesthetic propofol, and was then left alone by Dr Conrad Murray.

"That's a bold claim, isn't it?" Mr Chernoff asked.

Dr Shafer replied:

"It's an honest statement."

Mr Chernoff went on to suggest that Dr Shafer had drawn conclusions that were not necessarily supported by the evidence. Mr Chernoff said the type of IV line that Dr Shafer used in a demonstration for the jury was never found at Jackson's house.

  1. No one really knows what exactly happened. Whether MJ was used to self- medicating himself or he asked his doctor to administer the drug or whether the doctor gave him the drug. MJ is gone so we would never know the real truth of what took place. Why would a qualified doctor kill his patient when he was worth more to him alive than dead. He was being paid $125K a month so why let him die?
