A disturbing report questioning the qualifications of a man who assisted pathologist Dr. Michael Baden with the autopsy of 18-year-old Michael Brown may indicate that you get what you pay for when shopping around for the right forensic experts to bolster your case.

Shawn Parcells, who bills himself as a forensic pathology expert, was hired by the Brown family, but according to an investigation by CNN, he may not be the expert he appears to be.

A deputy sheriff from a previous case took it a step further and called Parcells a “fraud” and a “very good con artist,” the network reported.

Parcells has appeared numerous times on national television to discuss the Brown case, and he agreed to an interview with CNN. When asked to respond to a charge by a funeral home director that he did not show up for an autopsy, Parcells went off.

“Holy shit! Excuse my language, but I’ve got f*cking emails to prove he and I going back and forth and the fact that he ignores me,” he said. “He’s a dick!”

And this was the man the Brown family risked putting on the witness stand?

This is not the first time Parcells’ qualifications have been called into question. The Daily Caller did a report on August 21, more than three months ago, that was critical of Parcells.

    This fraud is not even state certified to do a postmortem. Why he was allowed to testify is anyone’s guess.

    So does the guy have a Masters Degree in Pathology Assistant or equiv., from a U.S. National University (one that offers a full array of undergrad, grad, professional and PhD programs) or doesn’t he? I mean, sheesh, that part alone is simple due diligence on the Browns’ part.

      Yeah like either parent of Michael Brown graduated High School.

    Obama doesn’t have a college degree, why should he?


    While national news media continue to focus on race in Ferguson, Missouri, where a white police officer shot and killed an unarmed black teenager, they apparently don’t think a similar case in Utah with the races reversed is that newsworthy.

    Police in Salt Lake City are continuing their probe into an Aug. 11 shooting outside a 7-Eleven convenience store, when a black police officer, whom local media are referring to as “not white,” shot and killed 20-year-old Dillon Taylor, who was unarmed at the time, according to his supporters.

    Police Chief Chris Burbank said the entire incident was captured on the body camera of the officer who shot Taylor.

    “You will see on camera … the actions of everyone involved, including up to the point where our officer utilizes deadly force and his response thereafter,” Burbank told reporters.

    He said the video, along with the officer’s identity, will be released at the “appropriate” time, adding it could be days, weeks or months.

    Ok Ok Ok….so lets take out the Autopsy done by the person hired by the Brown family…How is CNN going to discredit the Autopsies done by the Federal Government and the State of Missouri? Is CNN shopping for a different outcome to the exact conclusions that were reached by both of these governmental agencies? Needless to say autopsies done by two governments run by Democrats. Why is CNN trying to SHOP for a different conclusion, for ratings?

    Blacks, always paragons of morality and virtue.
    So the daddy of Michael Brown (a criminal with a long arrest record), the mother of Michael Brown — Lesley McSpadden (a criminal that bashed her own grandmother’s head in with a lead pipe and also an obvious Identity Theft CRIMINAL), and the child Michael Brown (a murdering thug who recently robbed a store owner then committed suicide-by-cop).

    Whatever could go wrong with trusting REPULSIVE CRIMINAL SCUM, like a family like that?
    Congrats Al Sharpton and President Body Odor, you just stuck your wang in the most toxic tar baby yet.

    When people hire a consultant pathologist they pay him to say what they want to hear.Doctor Michael Baden is an example.He will conform report to match the client’s needs.

    Now where was all this investigating when it was revealed that OBAMA was never really a “real” constitutional law professor at the Chicago Law School? So CNN is only interested in peoples’ credentials when they’re white little nobodies who have no direct influence on any of our lives, NOT when they’re running for president. I see.
