No doubt, we will all be inundated with media spinning their
stories about the upcoming murder trial of Michael Jacksons
doctor, Conrad Murray, in the upcoming months and beyond. We
are going to hear how Michael was a junkie, a drug addict, who
caused his own death.
What if I told you that thats a lie? How do I know?
Ive read the full autopsy report. It was grueling.
Its all there
.the truth. I dont agree with
it being published as it should be something private. I didnt
realize how much so until I read it. My goal was seeking and
proving truth for Michael, which the autopsy report definitely
does, though I think that in hindsight, it is a gross invasion
of Michaels privacy and I feel guilt now at having even
looked at it. But I cannot turn back the clock and change that,
so I will try to bring good and bring out truth, from what I
Would it surprise you to learn that Michael was telling us
the truth all along? Ive known that all along, as
have others, but there are still many who never really listened
to him when he was trying to give us the truth as media and
tabloids were on a witch hunt to destroy him and his image.
Truth matters. Would you believe me if I told you that Michael
did indeed have vitiligo (confirmed in the
autopsy) and did not bleach his skin to become white,
and that despite your hearing how he was a junkie, that the
only meds they found in him were regular prescriptions, the
drugs used to try to resuscitate him and the propofol? Its
all in the official autopsy report. I also share some of that
with you in this article, so please keep reading.
The truth is, blaming Michael Jackson for his own death is
just another lie being spread by the media. Why? Because
sensational stories that have drama, intrigue, lies and negative
news, SELL! News and stories about do-gooders dont attract
major attention (which is why most of you never heard about
Michaels non-stop charity and helping people and the lives
of so many children that he saved). The ugly, sensationalist
stories make the newspapers and television media outlets money.
The more people watching or buying, the more advertisers they
get. The more advertisers, the more money they make. Its
a business, pure and simple.
I felt a need to write this because, with all of the garbage
you are going to hear in the coming months, I thought you might
want to hear some real, honest truth, straight from the hip.
Ive talked with people, Ive researched, and I read
the autopsy report from top to bottom.
The truth of the matter is that, indeed, Michael Joseph Jackson
was telling us the truth, about himself, and his life. We just
werent listening! The FBI files prove it, the autopsy
report proves it (though I dont agree with the FBI files
and the final autopsy report being made public as again, its
is a gross invasion of his privacy.) Getting truth out there
was always the catalyst for the Reflections website. But you
have to spend a little time on there, to really read and view.
If you havent already and have believed the lies, you
will be blown away by the truth and how different it is from
what you have heard.
So few of us seek truth. We dont have time, we say. But,
we have time to watch 24 hour news channels, read the paper,
surf the internet, spend all day on Facebook and watch our reality
shows every night. We have time to believe all of the garbage
that is thrown at us daily and regurgitated as truth and we
then have time to tell everybody we know, this convoluted version
of truth, essentially, continuing to spread the
A mans life was taken (long before this murder). His life
was stolen from him because of all of the lies that were spread
by the tabloids, the media, and by everyone who
spread those rumors and lies they heard and read as a way to
entertain themselves and their friends. After all, it cant
hurt to make fun of someone else, to defame someones character,
to call someone a freak, to tear another human being apart.
Thats what we tell ourselves. What have we become as a
society! This could easily have been you or me. It could happen
to anyone. So if you dont care because it doesnt
relate to you, it DOES! You are not immune.
Michael was a man of dignity. He was humble. He was kind.
He loved and gave of his heart and soul in his talent and in
how he lived out his life helping others. The world gave back
to him by trying to steal away his dignity, his privacy, his
Here is a perfect example of just one of the millions of lies
Michael had to endure, day in and day out, courtesy of those
who proclaim to be reporting truth:
there was a news program talking about him being
in Europe with some little boy. I was sitting next to the guy
while the news is making this crap up. He just looked at me
and said this is what I have to deal with.
A sound engineer that worked with Michael
Some things that the autopsy report revealed:
*Confirmation that Michael Joseph Jackson did INDEED suffer
from the devastating skin disease, Vitiligo
A disease, many times hereditary (it is in the Jackson family)
which causes your skin to lose pigment and become ghostly white,
So for all of those who kept spreading the rumors with absolutely
no proof, saying that Michael wanted to be white, that he bleached
shame on you! Too many bought the lie, hook, line
and sinker, or, simply didnt care about the truth. This
lie was then spread, regardless of its inaccuracy and regardless
of how much it hurt another human being
.and was done so
without any proof and with nothing more than hearsay to back
up the claims. Again, it is so important to seek truth. You
can be a voice that stops the craziness and the lies. Anyone
can lie on anyone else and if you get someone to believe it,
it spreads, and before long, people start believing it because
they are hearing it so often. Its no different than bullying.

Straight from the autopsy report: Sections of
skin show no melanocytic pigment. Melanocytes, although present,
are reduced in number. There is focal depigmentation of the
skin, particularly over the anterior chest and abdomen, face
and arms. Diagnosis: Vitiligo.
*Michael was not a junkie or drug addict.
Michael suffered from severe insomnia. He was not a junkie!
But you are going to be hearing the opposite. Why should you
believe me? Ive read the reports. Ive spoken to
people who knew Michael well and for many, many years. Michael,
at one time, did have a prescription drug addiction to painkillers.
This was after his scalp was burned during the filming of a
Pepsi commercial, causing excruciating pain. He was put on painkillers
to help him deal with the pain. He admitted his addiction at
the time and sought help. Everyday people become hooked on prescription
pain killers all of the time. I personally know some of them.
Michael got treatment for that. Michael was ALWAYS against drugs.
The truth is, Michael was on prescription medications. Everyday
prescriptions that millions of others are on. Just put yourself
in his shoes for a second. People (the tabloids, media, public)
were constantly lying on him, calling him a freak, making him
out to be something that he wasnt. Many people betrayed
him and to this day, still try to pass themselves off as experts
on him or friends of his. There are many who watch these people
on television, and believe their lies. This is just another
example of something that wasnt true, being sensationalized.
Just to look at things from the opposite point of view for a
second: Even if he were to have had a prescription drug addiction,
a treating physician (or physicians) would not ethically prescribe
more of these drugs to someone with a problem. No matter the
amount of money. Prescription drug addiction many times comes
from the nature of the drug. Many drugs are addicting, even
in people who wont so much as normally take an aspirin.
The meds they found in their toxicology reports are standard
prescription drugs. What wasnt found in his system?
No alcohol, marijuana, barbiturates, cocaine, no morphine or
other opiates, only the prescription meds he was on, the
drugs used to try to resuscitate him, and the propofol. Should
he have been given propofol? No, absolutely not. But he was
for whatever reason.
Michael suffered from severe insomnia. Michael was not a junkie.
The official cause of death? Acute propofol intoxication that
was ruled as a homicide.
Anesthesiologists viewpoint on the toxicology screen
"The levels of propofol found on toxicology exam are similar
to those found during general anesthesia for major surgery (intra-abdominal)
surgery, a patient with these blood levels of propofol would
be intubated and ventilated by an anesthesiologist and any
cardiovascular depression would be noted and treated. Lorazepam,
a long-acting benzodiazepine, is present at a pharmalogically
significant level and would have accentuated the respiratory
and cardiovascular depression from propofol. "
Dr. Murray was a cardiologist and should have known these side
effects and also, the effect of both drugs together. It is also
very obvious that this was a severe overdose of propofol and
that the level of the Lorazepam was significant (according to
Murrays testimony, he continued to give more and more
of certain drugs). He said himself that he administered them
The autopsy also reports that it would have been nearly impossible
and highly unlikely that Michael could have administered propofol
to himself, which some have claimed.
The issue with propofol will come up. Some will say that Michael
asked for it and knew the risks. I dont know the answer
to that as I cant ask him, but I will say that any competent
physician would NEVER administer a drug like propofol outside
of an operating room and certainly not to treat insomnia and
as you see above, the level given to Michael would have ALWAYS
required intubation and being on a ventilator. The doctor
determines the dose and this dose was obviously a serious overdose,
not to mention that this drug was not to be used outside of
an operating room with an anesthesiologist present. Something
is definitely not right there. The autopsy shows a very healthy,
though somewhat thin for his height, 50 year old man who did
not die of natural causes.
What killed him? Besides a lethal dose of anesthesia
and a benzodiazepine combo
The tabloid rumors, the medias
lies, the public buying into what were being sold (we
are being sold a bill of goods after all), and instead of showing
love, acceptance and appreciation for a man who wanted nothing
more than to share the talent that God had given him and to
heal the world, we lied on him and laughed at him and blindly
believed the people who betrayed him and falsely accused him.
This case alone has been a travesty. When Michael was falsely
accused of child molestation, 77 sherriffs raided his
home. 77!!! They dont even do that for a mass murderer!
He was brought in, handcuffed, manhandled and treated very poorly.
Dr. Conrad Murray, on the other hand, accused of killing a man,
walks in to the courtroom without handcuffs, gets a slap on
the wrist, walks back out without cuffs and is only being charged
with involuntary manslaughter, when the charge with evidence,
should be Murder1 or Murder 2.
The truth is
the world celebrates evil. Jesus Christ walked
this earth and was ridiculed as well. When he came up against
Pontius Pilate, the crowd shouted for Barabas, a known criminal,
to be released and Jesus was crucified. Times havent changed
much, have they?
We need to remember that Michael Joseph Jackson was a HUMAN
BEING. Not some enigma. Michael was a celebrity because
of his talent, he was the King of Pop because of his accomplishments,
but he was a human being and a kind, gentle, humble caring soul
first and foremost. He was human just like the rest of us. No
matter what youve heard to the contrary, this is who he
was. Michael was a son, a father, a dear friend to many and
to some who I have had the priveledge and pleasure of getting
to know. They saw a Michael that few ever got to see. He was
there the whole time, but most could not see past the celebrity,
the stardom, the wardrobe or the dance moves. If you looked
deeper, beyond the celebrity, you would see a piece of yourself
in Michael that you could easily relate to. Michael shared with
the world, his soul.
Dont you think its high time that you got rid of
the stereotypes and the jealousy, stopped believing the lies,
and got to know who Michael Joseph Jackson really was and is?
Because in that knowledge, lies real power. Why? If we were
to allow each person to just be genuine, the world would be
different. Michael Jackson was genuine. If we are genuine and
are true to ourselves, we no longer have to impress others with
rumors or gossip, we dont have to make up for what we
think we lack (when we are being our true selves, we lack nothing
as each flower is beautiful in its own right), and we then give
freedom to others to be genuine themselves and to be their best.
Michael always strived to be his best. When we use our God-given
talents and abilities, we CAN change things. We can make a difference
in the world. That is what Michael did and what he stood for.
He wanted to heal the world. To make it a better place. And
yet, the public is intent on reading all of the untrue garbage
they can on him (and others) so they can ridicule him only to
feel better about themselves. The lies are absorbed like water
into a sponge, yet, their impact is as deadly as an atomic bomb.
The truth goes missing.
The reality is, the truth is right in front of your eyes. But
you wont find it on your nightly news, your 24 hour news
channels, your newspaper, celebrity magazines or the tabloids.
As a society, we are having the wool pulled over our eyes and
just eagerly believing all that we are being fed. Are you going
to keep on believing the lies that you have heard and will continue
to hear about Michael (as well as all of the other garbage you
hear about everybody else), or are you going to grasp the truth
and be enlightened? Are you going to keep reading and clicking
on the garbage, or are you going to steer clear of it and as
an additional benefit, have a clear mind? Are you finally ready
for truth? The choice is yours.
