Demeral overdose suspected in the death of Michael Jackson

June 26, 2009

The media works in fast and mysterious ways.  Nah, that’s not true.  Money makes the world go around.

I love money more than some people I know....

Being rich allows you access that others do not have.  Going back to my man 50, he gives us words to aspire to.  I want to be rich enough to do whatever I want, instead of doing what I can.  Being rich is also how we get the more salious news details.  Thinking about Michael Jackson and his death brings me back to David Carradine and his death.

The media was all over the details of the death.  The Thai newspapers were quick to attempt to publish photos of what they claimed to be the room and the body.

Now, we know that the picture is a fake.

Look at this room and the room in the picture above.  Do you really think that someone of David Carradine would have to stay in a hotel like that? Thats the place we would stay in college with 6 people in the room.

Look at this room and the room in the picture above. Do you really think that someone of David Carradine would have to stay in a hotel like that? That's the place we would stay in college with 6 people in the room. This is a picture of a room in the hotel that he stayed in. The upper picture is a picture of a budget inn that charges by the hour for service...

But, our quest to satiate our morbid desire to find out what happened can push for people to create something like this for a hefty payday.  If you were a person with this photo, think about the amount that the National Enquirer would pay for a picture like that?  It seems ironic that I am posting about the invasion of someone’s privacy while at the same time claiming that its good to get money.  I know, I know, but I am a wage slave just like you.  I am at work right now, on my break writing this.  I would rather be at home chilling, enjoying the summer, but the money is too tempting.

But, money talks.  In the case of David Carradine, it led to his actual autopsy photos being leaked to the internet.  I was going to post them, and then thought that I didn’t want to see them, and I bet you didn’t either.  With Michael Jackson, the media frenzy hit a peak.  This is what money buys…

How much do you think that it cost to bribe the dispatch to take a picture of the call screen from someone in the MJ compound

How much do you think that it cost to bribe the dispatch to take a picture of the call screen from someone in the MJ compound? If you cant read it, it says that there is a 50 year old male, not breathing...from a Verizon phone... Can you hear me now? (too soon? maybe, but humor can solve grief)

Here is what the Sun reported

PARAMEDICS dashed to dying Michael Jackson’s side after a panic-stricken phone call from the superstar’s Los Angeles home.

The dramatic call was made by a member of staff last night at just after 8pm UK time.

Fire Department medics responded to the alert and arrived to find the 50-year-old singer collapsed and not breathing. He had suffered a cardiac arrest.

The emergency staff rushed him to hospital in their vehicle, where a computer screen revealed chilling details of his condition.

A record of the call-out read: “50 year old male Not breathing at all.” It gave the time of the call-out as 12.21pm local time.

Medics administered heart massage and oxygen along the route. But they could not revive the star.

Now, they think that the killer was Demeral, a painkiller.  That is one of the reasons I don’t like doctors, or taking pain pills.  My first reason was that pain pills trick you into thinking that the injury is okay, when it really isn’t.  Also, I was afraid of being addicted to them.  As I get older, I have become softer, and see some benefit in drugs, but I still avoid them.  When I had ACL and meniscus surgery, when I got home from the hospital, I had nothing stronger than some Tylenol-3 with codeine.  I know that I could have gotten something stronger, but I went with the small stuff.

Last night it was suspected his collapse could have been caused by an overdose of painkillers.

An Emergency Room source at UCLA hospital said Jackson aides told medics he had collapsed after an injection of potent Demerol — similar to morphine.

A Jacko source said: “Shortly after taking the Demerol he started to experience slow shallow breathing.

“His breathing gradually got slower and slower until it stopped.

“His staff started mouth-to-mouth and an ambulance was called which got there in eight minutes “But found he was in full respiratory arrest, no breathing and no pulse. They started full CPR and rushed him to hospital.

“When he arrived they started resuscitation, giving him heart shocks and inserted a breathing tube and other supportive measures to try and save his life.

“He never regained consciousness.The family was told that he had passed.”

What does passed really mean?  I know that saying dead might be a little crass and insensitive, but isn’t it the truth.  Where did they pass to?  T.O.?  We all know that he has bad hands, so I hope not to him…  Did you pass on?  So, where is the next show?  Seattle? London?  NYC?  It just must be the shock of the King of Pop leaving…

Now the Sun is reporting that they are looking for Jacko’s doctor and that they took out huge bags of vials and bottles.

The Jackson family’s lawyer Brian Oxman today confirmed “bags of material” were seized by cops from the singer’s LA mansion.

He said: “They (police) were looking for drug vials and syringes. I don’t know if they found syringes, but there would have been a lot of drug vials.”

Earlier, it was claimed Jacko’s upcoming tour and “life threatening” addiction to pain relief drugs had pushed the fragile star to breaking point.

The King of Pop was under immense pressure to perform a series of epic concerts in London as part of his “This Is It” tour.

It is feared Jacko may have developed an increasing dependence on painkillers to cope with his gruelling pre-show rehearsals.

A post-mortem examination is now being carried out by Dr Lakshmanan Sathyavagiswaran who was a witness in the OJ Simpson case to find the cause of death.

Who really cares who is doing the autopsy?  Now, the Doctor’s are becoming famous for doing their jobs.  Why should we care if you testified in the OJ trial?  That’s right, because we are addicted to what is happening with our celebrities.  We see them as friends and confidants.  When the Sun (owned by Rupert Murdoch, who has crazy loot) National Enquirer, People or Us Weekly report on something, (or start to speculate) we want to know.  Stars are just regular people who have a bunch of money.  If they weren’t rich, they would be the crazy lady who has 30 cats in her apartment.  But, if she is rich, she is just a little eccentric. (thanks Colin Cowherd/ESPNRadio for the bit…)

It is believed he may have overdosed on the drug.

Today, the room inside the rented home where where the singer collapsed and died was sealed off for forensic examination.

Mr Oxman – who was at the hospital when medics failed to resuscitate the star – later revealed the legend’s addiction to medications had become deeply worrying.

Mr Oxman told reporters: “I have been very critical of the use of pain medications.

“I have told people in no uncertain terms that if Michael one day woke up and he was dead I would not be silent, I would not permit this to go unchallenged.”

He later added: “I did warn him about the drugs, but I am sorry I didn’t warn him enough.

“I am going to wait until I get the toxicology report, and if his death has something to do with drugs, I am prepared to name names of doctors who prescribed them.”

Jacko had been rehearsing solidly in the run-up to the series of eagerly-awaited gigs due to start at London’s O2 next month.

More than 750,000 tickets had been sold for the 50 concerts, which were scheduled to continue into next year.

Also, is it too soon to ask about the refund policy? I hope that you didn’t buy your tickets from a scalper…

The money is huge… How much money did ETOnline have to pay to get this snapshot AND damn…who was just hanging around with a camera? Pop the top for MJ pictures and analysis

Another showing of our ghoulish side….

Someone hit the Ghoulish Lottery!

Someone hit the Ghoulish Lottery!

Money makes us do al lot of things…

Here are the real professionals, fighting to get the best snapshot of stars.

But the depths that they will go to to get the picture…

Princess Diana minutes before the crash...the fact that there are these pictures, is sad and telling

Princess Diana minutes before the crash...the fact that there are these pictures, is sad and telling

Then the fact that there are these photos make me sad.  Only because she is famous, do people want to see these pictures. (WARNING GRAPHIC PICTURE AHEAD)

Most people have never seen nor met Princess Diana, but they claim that they have some connection to her.  The quest for the touch of fame is spooky.  Does anyone want to see the pictures of my Mom, who also died in a car crash on the freeway?  Why not?  because she wasn’t famous. ( and I dont have pictures you sick bastard)  But, to know her, you would be moved by a lot of things that she was capable of, from her intelligence or her kindness.

But your quest to know has real consequences and makes me womder about your moral compass.  The grim reaper will come for all of us soon enough and hopefully, when he comes for me, the cameras won’t be rolling…

Just a little humor... Fuck em, he is dead and a thief who stole his moves from the brothas
