I’m flipping through the Sunday Tennessean (Nashvegas’s only daily paper) and I stumble across this little “gem” of a story. It seems that the medical examiner hired to do autopsies in 37 counties is grossly incompetent.
Thanks to this asshole at least two baby killers were free until the state called in another examiner to review the autopsies performed by this shithole. They found that he’d missed things like multiple skull fractures and broken bones! WTF? How do you miss multiple skull fractures and broken bones?
What’s worse, is that because this asshole didn’t do his job, at least one murder could have been prevented! One woman was killed by a man who’s previous wife died because of a “seizure” according the medical examiner. Her family managed to get the first wife’s body exhumed (only after the shithead had killed his second wife) and examined by another pathologist who found what he said were “obvious signs of blunt trauma” and that the victim had no prior history of seizures.
There’s two other things that really steamed my clams about this asshole. When they interviewed one of his collegues who had testified against this fuckup in a case, he didn’t say, “I think he’s grossly inept.” (Though the guy who started the “Body Farm” did say that.) No, this shitmeister said, “Everyone’s allowed to have a bad day.” Excuse me? Excuse me? Fucking up an autopsy so that a killer is allowed to go free and kill again isn’t “a bad day”, and considering his line of work, he shouldn’t be allowed to have “a bad day.”
The other thing that got me was one of the cases this guy was involved in. About five or six years ago, there were a series of fast food killings. The robber would enter the store right before closing and systematically gun down everyone working there after he got the money. They managed to catch the guy (thanks to an eyewitness who survived and lots of incriminating evidence including blood from the victims being found in his car) and he’s scheduled to die soon. The medical examiner who’s fucked up so royally handled the case. This means that the fucking murderer can go to court and say he needs a new trial! Now, Tennessee’s got several judges who are so opposed to the death penalty that they’ll throw out a death sentence for no reason! (No shit, one of them was told that he’d be disbarred if he threw out another death sentence without any evidence for doing so.) So, this fucker will get to tie up the courts again, by trying to say the medical examiner’s incompetence caused him to get the death penalty!
I know that there’s people on this board who disagree with the death penalty, but that’s not the issue here. This guy did it (and that can be proven without the medical examiner’s testimony), and was sentenced, but because the asshole of an examiner was so fucking stupid, this shithead’s going to get another trial, where all that’s going to happen is they’re going to say, “You did it. Now quitcherbitchin’.” Maybe they’ll throw out his death sentence, maybe they won’t, I don’t really care. What I do care about is that the families of the victims (many of the people killed were high school kids), will have to go through the agony of yet another trial. All on the dime of an already financially strapped state’s dime. (Not to mention all the other cases that will probably have to be reexamined because of this shit for brains!)
And last but not least, this guy has been sued for sexual harassment several times! He’s an all around sleezebag and at least one county official has said that they don’t have a problem with anything the guy has done! Man, I gotta find another place to live!
