I remember how when the school released the video of the incident it was cut and spliced and had jump cuts all in it. It showed everything before and after, but not the incident itself. That videotape was cut up more than an emo girl's wrists.

I read the coroners name as "Bill Watterson" and was all "So that's what he's doing now".

Animatronik: Yeah I think it's early to assume racism. Sweeping under the mat plus police incompetence should not be discounted yet.

Cerebral Ballsy: I wonder how much coroners and medical examiners make? Is it on par with private practice?

I don't know, but the previous coroner in my county fought bravely in WWII.  For Italy.

He was known for his amazing ability to to determine the cause of death at the scene without ever getting out of his car.

vudukungfu: Langdon_777: About time.

If it had been a white kid, it would have been faster.

If it were a white kid it would have been solved within the first 48 hours.

But amazingly. black kids have the innate ability to fit themselves into tight spaces and pass away. That's science!

You do realize coroner in many jurisdictions is essentially a political role and does not actually require one be an M.D. (or even have basic scientific training), right?

Georgia requires that you be at least 25 years old, have no felony convictions, have a high-school education and complete a week's training course in death investigation before you take the job.

Incredulous: Why is the FBI involved?  Where is the Federal jurisdiction?

Incredulous?  Or Concerned?  And who precisely do you suggest custodiet ipsos custodes?   In cases of malfeasance or incompetence at the local government level are we supposed to, I don't know...wait for the invisible hand of the free market to fix it somehow?

There's racism and then there's this stupid shiat. Save your outrage for a real racism case.

Sorry. I do apologize.
I meant to post "If it had been a young, blonde, white girl..."
