She looks a lot less dead than most of the living patients that come to me, let alone the ones that die. I can't see how anyone would think she looks dead. Her eyes look totally normal.

Let's be real here.

If she were dead in the photo, depending on when it was taken after death, her muscles would either be rigid with rigor mortis or would be completely lax. Gravity is obviously working in the correct direction for normal muscle tone. If it weren't, in the case of rigor mortis, her eyes would be fixed in whatever position they were in when she died and her muscles would be hardened with them flowing back towards wherever gravity was when rigor mortis set in. If she died before they brought her in and they sat her up to try to make her look natural, her face would have drooped and frozen. If they didn't sit her up and try to make her look natural, her face would be all sideways and screwy. Also, in the case of it being before or after rigor mortis and her muscles were completely lax, they would be soft and would droop toward the direction of gravity. So, if she were dead and laying down, her eyes would have obvious ptosis, her lips and cheeks would be spread out, and her neck would look different.

This is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen the race baiters come up with.

The one on the right is supposed to be the Undoctored one. But it looks like she may have been mid blink? I dont know. Everything in the pic looks identical except the eyes.

@canigraduate: not half as dumb as the drek dreamed up by racists, from doctored videos and audiotapes to coded memes (47%, anyone?) and "Welfare Queen" fantasies.

No. The one on the right is Photoshopped. The left iris is uneven and the shadowing under the eyes is monochromatic, a dead giveaway. Facebook is not a reliable source for "facts." I used to be a photo manipulator in my pre-nursing days.

@heron: I don't know what you mean. I haven't followed current events since they stopped a news broadcast to announce that Britney Spears was pregnant. That's been, what, 10 years? 15? I rarely know what's going on and don't know what you're referencing. (Although the 47% is reminding me of Mitt Romney, so maybe I caught a little of that.)

@canigraduate: I am referencing your comment about "race baiters" and observing that racists have a much longer history of embarrassing themselves with obvious fabrications and paranoid fantasies. They're even dumber than whoever dreamed up this dead person mugshot thing.

Just as an aside to a PP: No one 'needs' to watch the news.

I had never heard of her either and had to google her. I quit watching the news when my youngest child started having anxiety from all of the bad things talked about on the news.

She doesn't look quite dead...just unhappy in the mug shot. This is not the video I saw the other day, but I never got to the end of it. It must be the end of the one I saw the other day or another portion. In any case, I remember thinking the other day that the cop was aggressive and over zealous. However, she was also rude and I do believe- from what I have read, she did commit suicide.

I seriously think the photo-shopped one is the one with the eyes rolled back.

I'd say the one on the right is photoshopped, but I doubt photoshop would do such a bad job, it looks more like something that was done on MS paint or MS publisher.

You need to watch the news a bit more. Unless you are joking.

Not everyone lives in the US and not everyone watches TV.
