Dr. Conrad Murray, convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of pop icon Michael Jackson, has gotten a slap-down from the Medical Board of California for daring to hope that he would ever be able to practice in the state again.

According to TMZ, Murray is due for release from prison at the end of this month, and he’s been furiously attempting to get his old job back. No way, says the board, citing three major issues. A) He pumped Jackson full of the powerful anesthetic propofol for 60 days straight; B) He thought that propofol was a sleep aid in the first place; and C) The actions allowed Jackson to die of a massive overdose of the stuff. All of that sort of flies in the face of, “First, do no harm.”

Too bad he can’t bottle and sell bitterness, because he could very easily live off the proceeds of that instead.Conrad MurrayFeaturesGossip
