Police Pathology

The sterling work of the pathologist assigned to determine the cause of death of Ian Tomlinson at the recent G20 demonstrations (the main demonstration being that of brutality, as it turns out) may have led some of you to now consider a career as a pathologist.

Before you rush down any potentially life-changing career paths please check to see whether you can meet the police force’s requirements for competency and responsibility in this challenging role.

  1. I applaud the metro police department. They simplify the process and make it easy to understand for the general public. Doctors and nurses and drug companies are crazy. They always make everything so complicated. You got a red spot on your face. They make you think you have liver problems. You have coughed for a week. They sound like you have a tumor in your brain and require a plastic surgery. Most of the time, I just don’t understand what they are talking about and I wonder if they are speaking English. I solute the metro police!!!

  2. I understand your concern Tiggy. In the high-pressure world of police pathology, though, it’s often quite acceptable to omit the examination and right-hand side of the flowchart entirely.
