Good news everyone: the Big Gulp guy, Shawn Parcells, was just indicted on 10 counts of wire fraud for fraudulent autopsies. I'm glad his schemes can be put to rest!

Unfortunately with the education level exhibited by John Oliver and many fans who do not comprehend the concept of entertainment, I seem to need to point out the obvious. To date, there have been exactly ZERO deaths prevented. That is a fact. If you disagree, immediately contact your local mental health institution.

In Indiana the coronor can't do autopsies unless they are board certified. So the coronor is only an administrator.

Okay so this might be an unpopular opinion, but I'd actually prefer my brain to be used as a toy for two, probably very very fucked up children, than risk anyone who was murdered be classified as an accident because the person examining their body was part of the group that killed them.

While on the topic of changing the death industry, "ask a mortician" is a great youtube channel that covers a lot of death-related issues worth being informed about. Highly recommend.

8:25 Now, I'm no coroner (yet) but I did take a brief forensics course, and while I don't remember the specifics I'm pretty sure one of the assignments was a body found in a burnt out car presented weirdly like a choose-your-own-adventure, and there was _so much_ evidence that can point toward a homicide based only on what started the fire, nevermind any other factors. (If I remember right, that assignment was a homicide pointed to by fabric remnants around the body seemingly a rope, and the fire originating in the trunk with a scorched puddle on the ground below it) So... kinda lost the plot, but "There's no way to know" is just actively wrong and I found it interesting to actually have personal experience/knowledge to prove something like this.

Arkansas is doing it wrong. In fact, they should make being a felon a requirement to become a coroner. That would probably increase the odds of getting people with experience in carving up bodies

Can't believe I'm saying this but this time India beat you to it, we have only Medical Examiner's system and guess what, in almost all homicide cases the doctor performing the autopsy is POST GRADUATE in FORENSIC MEDICINE !! Well the other autopsies are also performed by doctors just they are not postgraduate in that specific field, but they do get their autopsy (forensic) training during their medical school. and when you've been seeing that whole life, A third world country like India keeps qualified people for important stuff as this and the mightiest nation of all, the great America lets Farmers and barbers perform it ? Hilarious but saddening

Well, I almost married Beth Phoenix, but I didn't. Sweet Jesus on a cupcake spit, fuck me sideways and call me Julia... after everything Trump's ever said, this has to be the dumbest. Or maybe that's the guy who believed him. "Did you believe him?" "Yes." "Why?" "He said so". That's why job interviews exist; so they can test your knowledge! This... this is why America's average IQ doesn't reach 90 points.

Isn't it the same for being qualified for being president of the United States, as long as you are American, you are elected and have no criminal record you could be the next president of the most powerful country in the world. Its crazy thats all it takes surely a degree in political science should be a minimum qualification but look at trump, he can barely count to ten and has the vocabulary of a toddler. I guess the bar for many important positions in America is very low.

Personally I don't care about Glenn Close's spleen. There are more tastier & nutritional things (in Glenn's body) for a dog to eat than her spleen, such as; her Colon. It's a well known fact that Glenn took Immaculate care of her Colon. During her Monthly Colonoscopy, Doctors would use Welding Shields, to protect their eyes from the intense Ultraviolet radiation that came from light reflected off her Ultra-Clean mirrored Anal Cavity. Doctors often reported being able to wave at Glenn's Colon and see themselves wave back! 👉🏻 Compare that to the Horrific Scenes, "Visions of HELL", they would see, waiting for them inside Tom Cruise's Colon! One G. I. Doctor reported, "Even 2 Tours in Vietnam, did not prepare me for the Atrocities I saw of tiny bones & shredded fur; Grotesquely twisted faces of Fear etched on the faces of Dead Gerbils, and Hamsters still on their running wheels! This was the Colon of Tom Cruise; here lay the Real, "Apocalypse Now!"

"Good medical examiner do the half if what they could do in other medical specialties for tips of satisfied customers" If a corpse, after being opened, dissected, putted back together and closed again without finding any sign of life whatsoever, would pass me 5 dollars bill I would ran out of the facility as fast as I could without looking back and I wouldn't return there ever again

I wished John mentioned the two teenagers the coroner decreed, "they smoked Marijuana, fell asleep on R.R.tracks and sadly Died " Don Henry and Kevin Ives (and others ) Yeah , this could be a great episode on its own. If interested RUposts has documentaries about them and the many friends, witnesses all with suspicious deaths. If you like conspiracy theories involving C.I.A. , Corupt police/sheriff, Coroner, D.A.'s office, Cocaine trafficking. ( icing on the cake," The Clinton family, then govenor) type in "1987"with the names . These families are to this day fighting for truth and answers . They were lied to for 33 plus years .Enough with the cover up.

All deaths are natural. Even murders. People are animals, and animal nature tells the predators to hunt. Therefore, one person's murder is another person's sport... Obviously I'm fucking with you guys. Haha but sadly, there are people who see it that way.

I know that coroners used to be elected in UK and not anymore. In Russia, if you want to become forensic expert/pathologist, you have to study in med school for 6 years and then some more 3 to 4 for a forensic pathologist. In Netherlands, where I study now, it is absolutely the same. What the fuck is wrong with USA

I had to wait over a year to get my mother back. They said "they were backed up". They did no autopsy.. Which i asked them and was reassured it would happen and within 6 weeks.. Bc of back up. It actually took 14 months... In a MAJOR city.. known as the 2nd largest banking and economic city... We weren't able to do an open casket Memorial bc they took too long, they stole that from ME and my family. I think she had a stroke or something along those lines. No damn autopsy.. Prob got a Damn 18 yr old kid deciding shit and cutting em open

In the UK coroners are actually usually procurator fiscals; crown prosecution lawyers. Which sounds a bit weird because they're law not medicine but because they're criminal conviction lawyers they're required to be trained in forensics. So they know how to look for the signs of foul play, such as murder, because the rest of their job is putting murderers behind bars. So that's a whole entire law degree, a legal practise diploma and five years of experience. That's at least 10 years of training, in the shortest time it can be completed.
