We'll -- -- -- second session on the docket today -- play by play account of Michael Jackson's death from the first emergency worker to arrive on scene.
This is a live look inside the courtroom in Los Angeles.
Doctor Conrad Murray on trial for manslaughter.
Firefighter and paramedic Richard -- Testifying about the intense moments after He first arrived on scene and stopped Jackson's lifeless body.
Describing a chaotic scene inside that bedroom where doctor Murray and a swarm of security guards were desperately trying to save him.
The patient was dressed with -- pajama bottoms.
And it could jail atop the top was open.
The patient was wearing.
Surgical -- or something similar covering this terror.
And He appeared to be.
Under -- to me.
This describe for me what doctor Murray was doing at that point in time.
At that point He was leaned over the patient He had was -- the patients torso and his moving the patient.
From the bit to the floor now describe.
Doctor -- demeanor please.
Joining me now Fox News legal analyst -- wheel and defense attorney mark -- -- So the prosecution.
Is going through the moments before the days before Jackson died the moment.
That -- the crisis -- became apparent to those in the house and in the putting witnesses on the stand one after the other to talk about the scene that paramedic.
Is speaking and Conrad Murray's demeanor.
And how He handled the emergency and what are they trying to establish exactly.
Compelling testimony clearly this is a pattern showing gross negligence and that He put.
His -- interest before that of Michael Jackson.
When those security when there was -- paramedics come into the room.
I can't think of any scenario that wasn't just the five Murray saying to them listen.
I was giving him -- fall if that doesn't flow from his lips within seconds of those people being that you know he's trying to hide something.
That coupled with having items hidden from the rulings that they wouldn't see and not telling the emergency people at the hospital just doesn't bode well.
Well that's the thing the prosecution is trying to show least that this is that Conrad Murray stonewalled.
The paramedics didn't want to dispense information to them even though Michael Jackson by all accounts was dead on the floor right I mean you're not like -- He thought He was protecting a patient's privacy He get them all the witnesses are saying He was dead.
And so they're trying to suggest that Murray was trying to cover up from the get go including by this sound but let's let's play it as -- first sound -- where the paramedics talking about how.
Murray was essentially trying to Stonewall him on and phone.
I asked what is underlying health condition was He did not respond.
I asked again what is underlying health condition was.
He did not respond and any that I think was the third time He said nothing nothing has nothing.
And simply that did not add up to me why is that.
Some doctors and house.
I people may be hooked up to patients.
And it didn't seem normal.
Least it's good evidence for the prosecution but you know make and that defense lawyers can manipulate evidence and testimony here's how I would do it.
I would say look.
Very didn't call nine when first ball that He waited -- because He was desperately trying to.
Resuscitate Michael Jackson He failed at that so when the paramedics came.
Mercury news that Jackson was already dead He didn't want until the paramedics why because He didn't want to damage He knew that would -- Michael Jackson's reputation.
You know floor ever that I wanna know what you mark you don't well I did a good -- -- they -- Tokyo but you're not gonna resonate in my now He just finished and north wind He would hide that.
He would hide all of that -- that the the dedication the pair well everything else He would hide that because again He wanted to protect.
History his memory there was nothing to do to save them anymore He had done everything He could He had failed.
And that's where He -- why when He be straightforward why wouldn't He tell I mean in this kind of situation.
Why would He be straightforward about the medication that this patient had -- on in the preceding days at a minimum the and was the what was I got the chance to get our outlet you get it but let let's let's play this sound efforts -- folks in the control on let's -- that says the next sound sound like we had low light of what's -- right -- about -- -- -- this.
He initially didn't provide you any information regarding any medications what I said initially -- of course was what's his underlying condition.
And then from -- I didn't get what I felt was and it a satisfactory answer I explained to him.
On the reason I'm asking this because I see an underweight patients I see -- -- here and I see medication vials on the nightstand.
In response to your questioning.
Repeatedly regarding medications.
Did doctor Murray provided you with information concerning medications.
At that point He said no it's not -- -- any thing.
And then He followed up provide I just came a little bit of Lawrence -- to sleep.
The answer is because.
In their right mind would ever administer approached a fall in -- house.
For this purpose and -- he's trying to safeguard that no -- is right.
You gotta wait till the defense's case they're gonna I'm sure by some experts you're gonna come and probably -- rainbow way -- red noses and flowers on the appellate shoot water.
Who will say yeah I I do that.
That's okay I know a lot of doctors to do that when.
I don't and the outlook maybe -- how bad -- bad and that's why that testimony was devastating.
So even if he's gonna say okay pro football because they have a violent -- -- that was not an estimate that's bad it's not like there was a mystery about pro football.
That it's that they found in it and they ms.
black and I also so the question -- is why with a paramedic was saying what medications as the guy why didn't Conrad Murray say.
Prop fall or at least even and economy very leery of I didn't know we brought about to -- himself why any at least say he's Ben taking -- of all night after night tonight.
-- could be He was dead at that point.
And we you know it could've -- anyone else.
But it was Michael Jackson -- everybody in the world would be talking about and do anything that -- could to protect his reputation He tried to save and He couldn't say that.
He had to call the paramedics they came at that when He tried to hide everything and make sure -- Michael Jackson looked as good as He -- and and finally talking about buying at -- -- witnesses mark don't forget to -- the testified today.
Was paid for interviews I mean that's gonna come out people that -- -- could stand to get money.
-- even if it's not -- doctor Murray was so concerned about Michael Jackson and his well being and his reputation and so on.
And why we have testimony today from -- medical manufacture talking about how He.
He bought supplies on the cheap and didn't have the right monitoring equipment there hours -- -- really -- about dangerous drug mark.
We've got we've got to talk about that we're talking about the oxen and are a poll -- that there.
For a couple hundred dollars more He could have purchased one that had an alarm on it.
Which would have served Disney's well since he's somebody who typically abandons patients apparently when you go outside to -- 46 minutes worth the telephone calls.
I would spend a few hundred dollars have -- alarms that you know what -- Paul Michael Jackson dance goes I.
Mark but -- -- been a cheap doctor doesn't make you grossly negligent doctor and to having conversations with.
Other folks doesn't make you grossly negligent doctor and that's what the prosecution when they're beginning -- You apply all.
I was saying is here guys we cannot assume this -- a slam dunk case because the defense is going to be able to you're right a lot of it's right around and come with the alternate theory.
And all they have to do is convinced.
One measure now.
-- here's the problem.
At the end of the day at the end of the day.
You don't give a loaded gun to a depressed teenager and after He shoots himself go.
All my goodness I had no idea but they've -- don't put pro football near Michael Jackson you don't know what in his home you don't not have that safety precautions in place.
As even at his theory I mean with you by.
That and Michael Jackson miraculously gave it to himself Michael Jackson got his own I don't see any -- health Michael Jackson hooked up to young cat cats that are.
Michael Jackson and -- then administered -- a file which at which knocks you out.
I mean in that it all of us out while that was amazing even -- added Conrad -- on a 150000 dollar retainer per month get a doctorate there wouldn't get himself -- -- -- -- get rid of -- ready get patients that don't tell their doctor everything what but the fact is right outside the -- who's been given -- -- -- get -- -- -- -- get it passed out after the first -- He could have given the amount that was found in his system.
Without passing out birth I'm -- That's not stop the I got it -- I -- got the discussion to be continued thanks panel will.
