In just a two weeks, the Dr. Conrad Murray trial has already produced several shockers. The image of Michael Jackson’s lifeless body, the frantic moments after Jackson slipped in a coma, learning Jackson’s kids, Paris and Prince, watched their father die. For Jackson’s fans, it’s almost been too much.

But yesterday, one of the most heartbreaking moments of the trial took place. During an attempt to show the jury Dr. Murray was aware of Jackson’s reaction to the powerful drugs he was administering, the prosecution played a four-minute audio of a semi-comatose Jackson. On the tape, which was recorded by Dr. Murray’s cell phone, Jackson talked about staging the greatest comeback in history.

In a deep, slurred voice, Jackson talked about his upcoming “This Is It” tour, saying: “Elvis didn’t do it. Beatles didn’t do it. We have to be phenomenal.”

Despite his longing for a comeback, Jackson’s main concern was always children. During the audio recording, he said that nothing in his life mattered more than helping children.

Jackson said: “That will be remembered more than my performances. My performance will be up there helping my children and always be my dream. I love them. I love them because I didn’t have a childhood … I feel their pain. I feel their hurt. I can deal with it.”

Toward the end of the four-minute recording, there was a period of silence. Dr. Murray asks Jackson if he  is ok. Eight seconds pass before Jackson responds. He tells Dr. Murray, “I am asleep.”

    I haven`t watched one second nor any news reports; I`ve said it before, that trial will only give the DEMONIC, WHITE, MEDIA further opportunity to CRUCIFY Mike. Was he perfect? NO. However, I submit you can search the four corners of the Earth and fine NOT ONE who has that attribute. We are all human beings with weaknesses. And to add to that do we really know each other or, do we all in some form walk around with a mask on? Hell, open the good book as some call it. You`ll see that Moses committed murder, yet he was chosen by God. Noah drank, yet he was chosen by God. Lot committed incest with his daughters, yet he was chosen by God. David plan the murder of the husband of Batsheba, yet he was the friend of God. So, the point is we, all, are frail mortals in the flesh. Who among us is able to, REALLY, judge? Are we greater than he, the creator? Think about it.

    The only thing I want to hear out of this trial is when or if the put
    Murray on the stand and ask him who hired him to kill Michael Jackson
    No one much less a Doctor walks around for nearly two hours while a man
    is dying right in front of them Murray deliberately choses not him help.
    Murray waited until he knew Michael was good and dead before he called for help anyone with any sense can see that. The Mainstream Media Can’t
    And Is it just me or do the remaining Jackon Family seem to enjoy abit too much
    that Michael’s Gone. Even Arsenio Hall had the courage to said that on his twitter page.
    Question: if the Jacksons were a White family who behaved like this after the death
    of a Richer far more successful family member … wouldn’t people seriously question their role in that person’s death. Even as a person of color I feel the major double
    standard should not be ignored And any hurt feels in what i suggest should not
    out weigh Justice for Michael

    I think this is one trial that needs to run its course before any concrete conclusions can be made. Let’s not make this the next OJ circus trial. I don’t think there will be anything normal about this trial though. Shame…
