Jesse Jackson: Michael Doc's Actions Were "Bizarre"

Rev. Jesse Jackson has spent time with Michael Jackson's family since the superstar's death last Thursday and, since then, has spoken to People.com about his feelings on the situation.

"The suddenness of it all I am still in shock. It just hurts. It hurts," he says of Michael's untimely death.

The Rev. also revealed that the Jacksons are uneasy about the circumstances of Michael's death.

"The family has questions. Of course. There is a concern about what happened the last 12 hours of Michael's life," Jesse said. "The doctor [Conrad Murray] has showed some bizarre behavior. Apparently, the doctor was with Michael, maybe administering to his back pain. And then, the next thing that happens is there is a 911 call. What's strange about that call is the voice says Michael's not breathing, that he's unconscious. How long was he not breathing? How long was he unconscious ...

"Then, of course, the doctor did not confer with the family. To say, 'Here is what happened in the last hours of your son's life.' That would have been the courtesy. He hadn't talked with the family. He didn't sign the death certificate. He didn't talk with the coroner. And then he was missing in action. Finally, when he surfaced, he surfaced with a lawyer. All these are rather bizarre actions.

"No one is in a position of accusing the doctor of anything. Because we don't have answers to the questions that deserve to have answers. There may be plausible answers, but we don't know. All we know is this bizarre behavior on his part."

Cops say that the doctor is not a suspect, nor did they think that anything seemed inconsistent when he was brought in for questioning Saturday night -- but Jesse doesn't seem convinced. Your thoughts?
