And this is who he is....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kevorkian


Jack Kevorkian (pronounced /kɛˈvɔrkiːɛn/[1]) (born May 26, 1928)[2] is a former pathologist. He is most noted for publicly championing a terminal patient's right to die via physician-assisted suicide; he claims to have assisted at least 130 patients to that end. He famously said that "dying is not a crime."[3]
Between 1999 and 2007, Kevorkian served eight years of a
10-to-25-year prison sentence for second-degree murder. He was released
on June 1, 2007, on parole due to good behavior.[4]

Kevorkian was tried numerous times over the years for assisting in
suicides. Many of these trials took place in Oakland County, Michigan.
In every instance prior to the Thomas Youk case (see below), Kevorkian
was beginning to gain some public support for his cause, as is
evidenced by the defeat of Oakland County prosecutor Richard Thompson
by David Gorcyca in the Republican primary. The result of the political
election was attributed, in part, to the declining public support for
the prosecution of Kevorkian and its associated legal expenses.
Kevorkian also demonstrated a flair for dramatic publicity stunts at
this time, showing up at one trial in a powdered wig. He protested an
incarceration pursuant to another trial by staging a hunger strike and
wore a placard challenging the Oakland County prosecutor to bring him
to trial for the death of Youk.Conviction and imprisonment


On the November 22, 1998, broadcast of 60 Minutes, Kevorkian allowed the airing of a videotape he had made on September 17, 1998, which depicted the voluntary euthanasia of Thomas Youk, 52, an adult male with full decisional capacity who was in the final stages of ALS.
After Youk provided his fully-informed consent (a sometimes complex
legal determination made here by editorial consensus) on September 17,
1998, Kevorkian himself administered a lethal injection. This was
novel, as all of his earlier clients had reportedly completed the
process themselves. During the videotape, Kevorkian dared the
authorities to try to convict him or stop him from carrying out
assisted suicides. This incited the prosecuting attorney to bring
murder charges against Kevorkian, claiming he had single-handedly
caused the death.
On March 26, 1999, Kevorkian was charged with first-degree homicide and the delivery of a controlled substance (administering a lethal injection to Thomas Youk).[8]
Kevorkian's license to practice medicine had been revoked eight years
previously; thus he was not legally allowed to possess the controlled
substance. As homicide law is relatively fixed and routine, this trial
was markedly different from earlier ones that involved an area of law
in flux (assisted suicide). Kevorkian, however, discharged his
attorneys and proceeded through the trial pro se
(representing himself). The judge ordered a criminal defense attorney
to remain available at trial for information and advice. Inexperienced
in law and persisting in his efforts to appear pro se, Kevorkian
encountered great difficulty in presenting his evidence and arguments.
The Michigan jury found Kevorkian guilty of second-degree homicide.
It was proven that he had directly killed a person because Thomas Youk
was not physically able to kill himself. Youk, unable to assist in his
suicide, agreed with Kevorkian under voluntary euthanasia: the consent
to kill him using controlled substances. The judge sentenced Kevorkian
to serve a 10-25 year prison sentence and told him: "You were on bond
to another judge when you committed this offense, you were not licensed
to practice medicine when you committed this offense and you hadn't
been licensed for eight years. And you had the audacity to go on
national television, show the world what you did and dare the legal
system to stop you. Well, sir, consider yourself stopped." Kevorkian
was sent to prison in Coldwater, Michigan.
In the course of the various proceedings, Kevorkian made statements
under oath and to the press that he considered it his duty to assist
persons in their death. He also indicated under oath that because he
thought laws to the contrary were archaic and unjust, he would persist
in civil disobedience, even under threat of criminal punishment. Future
intent to commit crimes is an element parole boards may consider in
deciding whether to grant a convicted person relief. After his
conviction (and subsequent losses on appeal) Kevorkian was denied
parole repeatedly.
In an MSNBC
interview aired on September 29, 2005, Kevorkian said that if he were
granted parole, he would not resume directly helping people die and
would restrict himself to campaigning to have the law changed. On
December 22, 2005, Kevorkian was denied parole by a board on the count
of 7-2 recommending not to give parole.
Terminally ill with Hepatitis C, which he contracted while doing research on blood transfusions in Vietnam,[9]
Kevorkian was expected to die within a year in May 2006. After applying
for a pardon, parole, or commutation by the parole board and Governor Jennifer Granholm,
he was paroled on June 1, 2007, due to good behavior. He had only spent
8 years and 2 1/2 months behind bars rather than the predicted 10–25
years.[10][11]
"Kevorkian will be on parole for two years, and one of the
conditions he must meet is that he cannot help anyone else die. He is
also prohibited from providing care for anyone who is older than 62 or
is disabled. He could go back to prison if he violates his parole."[12]
Kevorkian said he would abstain from assisting any more terminal
patients with death, and his role in the matter would strictly be to
persuade states to change their laws on assisted suicide. He is also
forbidden by the rules of his parole from commenting about assisted
suicide.[13] [14]
On June 4, 2007, Kevorkian appeared on CNN's Larry King Live to discuss his time in prison and his future plans.[15]
At the time of Kevorkian's release, the only state in the United States
that had legalized doctor-assisted suicide for terminally ill people
was Oregon.

A friend of mine's grandmother was once a patient of Dr. Kevorkian's. I was wondering when he'd get some press coverage again.

Yes! you have it right. That is exactly what Dr. Death is saying. MJ pestered Dr. Murray so much for drugs that Dr. Murray gave into him so if MJ died it was his fault. Keep in mind this is the same guy that gave terminally ill patients drugs to put them out of their misery. He assisted them with their suicide. He's irrational and really shouldn't talk about anything of which he has no understanding. It seems that everyone is so quick to judge MJ's death and put the responsibility on him. Of course, MJ isn't dead anyway but all of the speculation is so sickening. Keep the Faith!

[quote="Truth_or_Dare"]So Michael can take whatever drug he wants and the doctor has to give it to him even if it kills him???? Did i get that right?

Sorry guys but this one hits a nerve with me, coming from a "doctor" who got pinned with the nickname, "Dr Death" I think Jack K needs to not comment on this, or ANYTHING that has to do with caring for someone's health. EVER.

"Murder is defined by forethought. Did he have forethought? I doubt it."

No, maybe not, Jack, but YOU MADE A LIVING HELPING PEOPLE WITH ASSISTED SUICIDE... wouldnt THAT require forethought, thus the reason you had the pleasure of serving 8 YEARS prison???

Sorry, no offense meant to anyone, but that "doctor" is also on my list of docs I would not be caught dead letting treat me or my kids!!!!!!! (no pun intended ha ha)
