documenting police brutality Show more
When documenting bruises or lacerations remember to place a coin next to any injury when you take detail photographs. This is to illustrate the size of the injury if the photograph is ever used in court.
Make sure the photograph is taken straight on and at least one picture is wide enough to include a tattoo or other identifying feature.
I like to use a cool white light source like an LED flashlight as the bluish light makes bruises show up more easily.
