To those who took the time to complain... If the video is too long for you maybe you should move on to another thread. I know that some members here
put in a lot of effort into their threads and that is greatly appreciated. But like you get annoyed by threads with a video and a question asking what
people think about it (like what I did), It's just as much annoying reading replies complaining that there's no transcript in the OP. My opinion is
stated in the title of this thread "there is something very wrong with the medical examiner." It is up to you whether you watch the video or not and
if you do decide to watch it like some people did and found nothing odd about it, you can ask me clarify what am I talking about. But I also know the
board rules on this issue and I apologize for not specifying what I think is wrong in the video.
Okay.. This is what seemed strange to me.
The statement about the rifle being the primary weapon was puzzling to me since I thought that it was found in the trunk of his car. (as the news
reporter also did). Somebody replied that it was actually a shotgun and has been covered already in another thread. I haven't seen that thread yet.
He didn't know the caliber were these bullets. That's something that is confirmed by the ME as far as I know.
The fact that they showed the families photos of their babies is weird. The families are usually allowed to be with their loved ones especially
children. Unless they didn't want to. I don't know just seems strange.
It's strange that he didn't know if the gunman killed himself with the rifle, but he did say that he didn't do the gunman yet. Just seems strange
that they left him for last.
He didn't know how many were girls and how many were boys. Also odd that he didn't think that they would ask that question.
And when he was asked how many bullet casings were found total and the type of wounds, he answered with this...
"This type of weapon is aah, the bullets are designed in such a fashion that the energy is deposited in the tissue so the bullet stays in."
What does that mean?
TO reply to your observations:
1)Already covered. They took a shotgun out of the trunk. There is no reason to think that the early reports were nothing but bad reporting.
2)If you watch, he actually says he COULD identify caliber, but that it was not his field, so he would leave that to others. Which is the proper thing
to do, since he is technically not qualified to make statements on such things.
3)Some of these children were shot 11 times. 11 TIMES. There is no way that they would want the families seeing that kind of a gruesome scene. Do you
know what 11 rounds of .223 would do to a child's body? I feel sick just typing about it.
4)They hadn't examined the gunman yet. The kids were the priority. Pretty standard.
5) He didn't do all of the examinations. He only had info on the ones that he, himself, performed.
6) A)he would have absolutely no info on how many casings were found-he is not an investigator on scene; B)The answer he gave was to give the idea of
how much damage was caused. A LOT.
I dont see anything odd here. I see a man who is not comfortable on camera. A man who is more comfortable with gruesome death. He is trying to give
the information that he is qualified to give, without overstepping, all while being pushed by the reporters for more info.
If you watch, and read him and his body language as well as his words, he is telling you that these kids were literally shredded. He gave more info
than he really probably should have.
