Getting your photo taken with a dead head

Is the below acceptable?

Police probe after children find mobile phone with picture of man holding severed head | Mail Online

I've never really been a fan of taking photos of the dead myself like but have known lads who couldn't help themselves and snapped a few gory shots over the years.

The nearest to this I've seen is a medic waving a traumatically amputated hand at us as we arrived at a major incident. Is this the same or is he a sick fucker who probably supports Man U?

Edit to add - Hopefully the rozzers will nick him for that hair cut.

It's a disgrace - imagine how the family of the victim would feel.
Are the rest of the shots on the internet yet? Just asking.

"'At first I wasn't sure if it was real, until I started clicking through the rest of them,' said the father.
'It's really upset my daughter, she doesn't want to talk about it or go near the phone,"

Yet he kept her there while he clicked through the rest of them.

"she's really traumatized" Ah, I see, can almost feel the compensation setting in.

'It's really upset my daughter, she doesn't want to talk about it or go near the phone, she's really traumatised.'

and rightly fucking so. Its not her phone.

I also feel I have to add that the dad is a moron and an incompetent parent. Who looks at a phone photo's in company with their kids?

Saw the photo and am a little confused, which is which? They both have that rigor smile...

So, it was on a phone found in a ditch? I would suspect that someone stole the phone, took one look, wet itself and ran. Can we expect compensation for them as well for mental suffering?

I found it interesting that the article states that, 'There's no legal requirement to register as an embalmer, and once somebody has done some sort of training they can work as an embalmer.'

That's a bit appalling and places embalming in the same range as taxidermy.

Cremation looks better and better.

They should have looked through the phone's contact book, found something like 'Mum', 'Dad' or the most called number and try to return the phone. The rest of the device is off-limits. They should have used their heads, especially since they're still attached.

You'll go to hell for that "joke"

They have only kicked up a fuss because they didn't find any porn pics on the phone...

If the bloke in the picture is sacked will he be entitled to severance pay?

*breaking news*
Bloke who works with corpses for a living has morbid sense of humour.

After playing at soldiers I worked as a Scenes of Crime Officer for nine years photographing many a gruesome scene, CSI Miami it was not!

When people found out what I did they would always say "that must be an interesting job" and I would think of the time I photographed one particular Post Mortem, bodies stink I can tell you. A corpse, all the parts together was in a pretty good state of preservation due to being buried for six months in clay soil, had had its head and both legs cut off. The truck section was on the examination table, chest downwards and the Pathologist, prior to taking swabs, wanted a close up of the rectum as for some reason it seemed to have two arseholes, don't ask me why. The smell was pretty bad photographing the long shots but from six inches for the close ups it was rancid.

Upsetting a bulling Senior Detective later cut short this career. I don't miss photographing the bodies and the pay wasn't that great for what I did but it kept the girlfriend happy.

Not that I would look forward to them but night time Road Traffic Collisions (no one has an accident any more) were my favourites. Taking pictures while all around is a disaster and seeing how strangely beautiful some looked later after the film had been developed. Digital came later and at least you could have a quick look on the back to see if you had some images not like film were you hoped the long exposure had been correct.

[Austin and Vanessa see a man decapitated]
Austin Powers: Not the time to lose one's head.
Vanessa Kensington: No.
Austin Powers: That's not the way to get ahead in life.
Vanessa Kensington: No.
Austin Powers: It's a shame he wasn't more headstrong.
Vanessa Kensington: Hmm.
Austin Powers: He'll never be the head of a major corporation.
Vanessa Kensington: Okay, that'll do.
Austin Powers: Okay.
