Always funny if some lazy retiree ,who does nothing all day, except moaning  and sitting in his armchair ,advises other people how to do a job properly. Why not go to the beach and count sand grains ?

What are all these uniforms hanging/staring to nothing around there? Forensics were there, body was removed. They should be back at 'work'. Were they hoping for a photo session?
