CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -For the first time, the Cook County medical examiner's office has posted photos of unclaimed bodies on their website in an effort to help identify them. The program is generating some controversy because of the graphic images, but for the sake of people missing loved ones, this is a decision where the medical examiner believes the ends justify the means.

It's the logical next step when they are registering them to vote.

I am wondering if the Unclaimed Bodies are homeless people.

This will end after the pix start getting turned into ‘funny’ memes and ‘zombie’ Photoshops.

And the lawsuits begin.

This just begs for bogus postings of various politicians.

This is a good idea. Some people can’t afford to go look in person. I have a relative who went missing in California, not a thing I can do about it from here.

I’m sure that the “loving relations” will jump into claiming dead bodies so Chi-town can unload the morgue, and let the family pay for all the burial expenses.

Makes perfect sense!

Americans are such a coddled and protected people from the harsh realities of life by our overlords. Read a story about the drug wars in a mexican newspaper or website. Sometimes seeing the graphic truth, unfiltered by the psychological trauma-nazis sends the message home.

My guess is that they already voted for OBayMe last year. IMO, that would seem a typical scenario for Liberal RATs don’t ya think?

including, in some cases--photos of the victim's face.

Uh, yeah, that might help.

Soetoro did such a great job at fixing problems in Chicago that he got promoted to POTUS.

The Family probably assumes they're in the Cook County Jail, so they're fine.
