Detroit: Too broke to bury their dead

Money to bury Detroit's poor has dried up, forcing struggling families to abandon their loved ones in the morgue freezer.

DETROIT (CNNMoney.com) -- At 1300 E. Warren St., you can smell the plight of Detroit.

Inside the Wayne County morgue in midtown Detroit, 67 bodies are piled up, unclaimed, in the freezing temperatures. Neither the families nor the county can afford to bury the corpses. So they stack up inside the freezer.

Albert Samuels, chief investigator for the morgue, said he has never seen anything like it during his 13 years on the job. "Some people don't come forward even though they know the people are here," said the former Detroit cop. "They don't have the money." ...

I thought unclaimed cadavers went to the medical schools?

No, that would invite all kinds of lawsuits. Med school cadavers are typically expressly donated from what I understand.

Eventually they have to do something with unclaimed cadavers?

On further consideration the phrase "shovel ready" does come to mind.

I read last year that white ethnics who long ago fled to the suburbs are now disinterring their dead relatives from Detroit cemeteries for reburial in safer, suburban cemeteries. Maybe they should just start throwing the unclaimed bodies into the holes dug by the micks, wops, and polacks. After a few negro corpses move into the cemetery, the process of post-mortem white flight will accelerate and lots of cheap burial plots will become available for the rest of the morgue stiffs.

They show no interest in taking care of their own orphans (leaving that to white liberals) so why would they care about their dead?

Human corpses are just empty shells. Its amazing some efficient method of disposal is not simply embarked upon. If the family doesn't care how the body is interred, why should society care for them? Landfill, anyone?
