HLN's Mike Galanos is joined by Michael Barnes and Jeffrey Shapiro
We know you can't watch every moment or hear all the opinions from today's testimony, so here's your cheat sheet for catching up on what people are saying about the Conrad Murray trial today. Joining us on HLN were host Mike Galanos, drug policy adviser Michael Barnes and defense attorney Jeffrey Shapiro. Here are our four favorite observations from them.
On the defense debating Dr. Murray's use of propofol:
Jeffrey Shapiro: “This case is not defensible from a medical standpoint. I cannot believe any credible doctor would take the stand on behalf of Dr. Murray to say what he did was within the standard of care.”
On Dr. Murray's care of Michael Jackson:
Michael Barnes:"You’ve got to constantly treat these patients as if they’re at risk. And if you know someone has a risk of getting the drugs, or injecting them or otherwise, you don’t put them in that situation. You don’t put a drug seeker in a situation with room of drugs. Come on!”
On the revelation that Dr. Murray took few, if any, notes on Jackson's medical care:
Mike Galanos : "I don't even like it when I go to a restaurant and the waiter or waitress tries to memorize my order. I even want that written down!”
On where the defense goes from here:
Jeffrey Shapiro: “This was a doctor who was not even qualified to administer anesthesia who was not only doing something he didn’t how to do, but doing it in a bedroom without proper medical devices or care. There is no doctor anywhere who’s going to come to court and say that was appropriate."
