    "Okay! Look at it that way!" Lol that horrible coroner handled that like a boss! Hahah that's so awful... also, I'm a doctor so this is close to home... well when I say I'm a doctor, what I mean is I thought about going to veterinary school for a while. I didnt, but I realllllllyyyyyy thought about it and considered it. That counts right?

        Is it just me or does Charles Harlan look like Archie Bunker? And doesn't allowing the dog to eat the body parts you brought home from work sound exactly like something Archie Bunker would do?

          I feel like the sort of person who volunteers to cut up corpses in their spare time with no prior experience or training other than "they want to" is *exactly* the sort of person you DONT want to be a coroner.

            Coroners are elected and they don’t need medical training or know basic anatomy? Just how many serial killers evade justice because the pathologist in question can’t tell the difference between a lung and penis?

                                  This is a common American problem. Many are anti tax and anti government. If Americans paid more taxes, they would robust public services. Imagine if they had public funded healthcare! Or maybe I'm just a communist...

                                        You need a massively-overpriced university degree to get a job that'll actually support a family, but any egregious criminal scumbag can get into government jobs and erase the traces of their own crimes.

                                          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.

                                                                                        And then promptly had a laugh?

                                                                                            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.

                                                                                                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.
