As a Canadian, the idea that positions like coroner, sheriff, and district attorney are staffed via elections rather than via, I don't know, people being hired based on having the right qualifications for the job seems utterly absurd.
USA truly is the best country ever
Lmao the USC line
people with authority are scum. they abuse their power for personal gain.
Searched how to become a coroner in Australia because I have a health-related degree thought would be a good job. You need to be a Magistrate Judge and most have a double degree in the topic. Should probably go to America
He’s got to keep them warm
I almost became Angelia Jolie
Huh. I'm a little ashamed I thought coroners where medicaal doctors. 😦
squirt is delicious
I only have TREE-FIFY
9:30 poor Dr. Harlan. His dog ate the body's spleen and kidney, while the cat got his tongue!
I like to get high to this
I had my heard set on being a forensic pathologist when I finally decided to up and go to college. Then, spent some time looking at the roadmap. Almost 12 years of schooling. So, I got my Journalism degree instead...shit, me and John have a lot in common.
jon should do a video on chiropractic
Dont come at squirt
I live in the UK and this is literally my dream job. I can only hope they're better about it over here
@Mark Walker Little bit.. more geek tbf
Jessica Chubb your dream job? You must be a bit of a goth!
5:30 those romantic stories about the small town sheriff also being the ME now makes sense!
What does "almost became a doctor" _mean_ if you didn't at least flunk out of medical school? hahahaha
Even 1,000 wouldn't seem like enough for over 300,000,000 people. There are 10,000 working philosophers associated with an academic body in the US. _Philosophers._
love this guy! =D
So... who immediately googled Hugh Grant's name to make sure John wasn't just making things up?And then promptly had a laugh?
If you read novels by Kathy Reichs or Patrica Cornwell you will know that coroners are elected and can be anybody, it’s pretty scary.
Looks like another problem related to too many people and not enough money spread around. I guess that makes the solutions being spread more money around somehow, or having people just die and do less to prevent that? I guess we know what the decision was.
America is a joke of a country
One reason to have coroners, by the way, is to separate out the problem of "Why did this person die and what should we do about that?" from the question a forensic pathologist is best equipped to answer which is "How did this person die?". For example the answer to the second question might be "They were crushed to death when a cement truck fell on top of the railway train they were travelling in". That's interesting, thanks Ms Forensic Pathologist, but now I want other answers your medical knowledge isn't relevant to. A coroner, like a judge (so let's hire _lawyers_ to do this job) can hold a court and have witnesses talk about the events surrounding the death and come to conclusions like "Hey, we should have a rule that says a road bridge over the railway needs proper walls not a stupid wooden fence".The UK has coroners, but it also has forensic pathologists to tell the coroner how people died.
I think Canada runs on the same system.
