    Hey Piers,

    You had John Walsh on your show and he said, "Adhere to the Hipocratic Oath", well let me inform you, there is NONE! It was done away with in 1999 for simply being a lisense physician. You know what, it is one of the problems with our medical system, THERE IS NO ETHICS. That is why Conrad Murry did not do what John suggested. He is unethical, he was unethical, and because of his lisense, he believed, he did not need to be ethical.

    Sorry John!

      Mr. Harding;

      Your shortsigtedness regarding John Walsh is egregious and not based in fact. John Walsh, in response to the "Disappearance and Possible Abduction" of his son, developed a much needed public advocacy program which is televised, using ALL available media to report missing and exlpoited children and their possible abductors. Through his Televised program, "America's Most Wanted", his son was found decapitated and drowned. This Program has successfully assisted in the capture of suspects literally on the run, helped locate Elizabeth Smart and is a much needed service in the capture of criminals. He does what any proactive parent would do and extends his assistance to the Public at large...something the Kardashians' and Real Housewives "Reality Shows" do not even touch.

      I suggest you research before you regurgitate such inflammatory remarks. I am embarrassed for you. It is a sad statement on how we have NOT educated people in this Country and how people refuse to educate themselves and instead have trigger-happy fingers that are reactionary on a keyboard as well as a firearm.

      Those who refuse to remeber the past are condemned to repeat it. Comments would be better served if they came from a thinking mind rather than a self gratifying need to react.

    Conrad Murray sadly was not educated in the US and did not examine the entirety of his obligations to practice within State and Local Standards of Practice which governs Licensure and Practice for ALL Health Care Professionals and para professionals. Unfortunately, consierge services are extremely risky, discouraged by ethical MD's and Nurses. He has no one to blame but himself and for selling his services he is now enduring the consequences.
