NEWS: TX Medical Board President makes commentary

According to the Houston Chronicle, this was posted in their Op-Ed page yesterday regarding Conrad Murray.

"Conrad Murray cases monitored

Regarding “Jackson doc returns to clinic here” (Page A1, Monday), some people wonder why Dr. Conrad Murray is free to practice medicine in Texas and have asked the Texas Medical Board if he is currently under investigation. State law prohibits the Texas Medical Board from disclosing whether a doctor is under investigation; only final disciplinary actions taken by the board are made public. Murray, like all Texas doctors, is subject to scrutiny as well as entitled to due process as outlined in the law which the board must follow. Developments and final actions in California and Nevada on both a medical-board and criminal-action basis will be monitored as is the current practice of the board.

Irvin E. Zeitler Jr., D.O., Texas Medical Board president"

Well, you can't get any more direct than the president of the Medical Board. The actual post is about 1/2 way down the Houston Chronicle page.

  1. As director of Texas Medical Board Watch, it has been my experience that what the Texas Medical Board tells the public about the law is not necessarily factual. Why not demand that the Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott rule as to whether or not the public is entitled to information about the doctor who attended Michael Jackson's death? As it is, the Texas Medical Board is accountable to no one, although several committees in the legislature have the dubious honor of "having oversight".

    I suspect that the use of a powerful narcotic (like propofol), capable of causing a respiratory arrest, outside a hospital setting, is a felony. Presumably, giving a drug IV which caused a respiratory arrest resulting in someone's death, is a felony.

    Texas and US authorities with jurisdiction include:

    1. Texas Department of Public Safety narcotics division
    2. United States Drug Enforcement Agency
    3. Federal Bureau of Investigation
    4. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott
    5. US Attorney General Eric Holder
    6. The Harris County District Attorney
    7. Travis County District Attorney Special Prosecutions Division
    8. Every appointed Texas Medical Board member is guilty of "misprision of a felony" because he or she has not reported this crime to a proper authority who is taking appropriate action.
    9. Every committee member of the Texas Senate Health and Human Services Committee and the Texas House Committee on Public Health is guilty of "misprision of a felony" because he or she has not reported this crime to a proper authority who is taking appropriate action.
    10. Any Texas or federal court with higher jurisdiction than Harris County or Travis County can issue a Writ of Mandamus ordering an investigation consistent with the law and seriousness of the offense.
    11. Texas Governor Rick Perry apparently really is immune to the consequences which should be due him as the chief executive over such a corrupt state as Texas. Where else could the doctor responsible for Michael Jackson's death live and practice medicine without so much as having a file opened on him?
