    I have seen the pictures of the victims. IMO they don't look like trailer trash pigs who have abused their bodies for years. But feel free to interpret things as you see them.
    I do not succumb to adult peer pressure nor am I lured into bullying by other peoples perceptions.
    Carry on...........
    Many health problems don't manifest externally (Only obesity) And the media/family could have chosen earlier/better looking photos.

    No one was trying to fat shame anyone, OK maybe a little. IMO the majority looked overweight, some substantially. If there was a picture of a svelte athletic person, I did not see it...and here we are, still zero info/intel on the cause of death other then natural causes. I for one am comfortable with the way the DR govt has been handling the media drama. They have not groveled and kissed back sides. I travel around the island for business and other than big papi news I have not heard anyone overly concerned about the unfortunate deaths.

    Victims? To my knowledge no crime or wrong doing has been proven for the deceased to be considered victims.

    Fat, skinny, athletic, does not matter. You can be in the best of shape or the worst, you still never know when it (death) can happen. I cant imagine how some of these families feel. Saying goodbye at the airport, saying have a great trip/vacation and then this happens. I actually enjoy seeing people at the resort who may not be the healthiest ( on O2, using a walker, etc..). I think good for them still living life, enjoying vacation. There is no shame in living your life however you choose.

    The DR government is doing what it always does. Putting a brave face on bad situations and letting time resolve their issues. As for Dominicans caring about the plight of tourists, the reality is the majority of the DR population doesn’t work at the resorts and struggle everyday to survive, put food on their tables, and clothe their children. They don’t care about gringo tourist problems and are used to government apathy. The DR staff at the resorts care because they are on the front lines and it could affect their jobs but they are a minority.

    What I actually said was "But what's really disgusting is the deceased relatives using their deaths for a payday." You don't find that distasteful? And don't get me wrong. Nothing wrong with filing a lawsuit when there is legitimate wrongdoing or negligence that causes harm/death. But some of these people see a lotto jackpot win when a loved ones dies.
    KaChing.

    You could call it "I burned my lips on your hot coffee so I'm gonna sue MacDonalds Corp" phenomenon.

    Here's another example: A 300 lb out of shape guy dies in sosua, probably after hard boozing and downing 80 mg's of viagra. But what's the first thing his relatives say? "He was the picture of health". Why do you think they said that? Do you think they maybe have plans to sue the little hotel where the guy was staying?
