documenting police brutality Show more
Something to keep in mind is that the wrist is a very delicate structure that can easily be damaged so you should ALWAYS document any marks left by handcuffs. What looks like a 'nothing' mark can be a serious thing when it is on the joint itself.
Nerve damage is pretty common when handcuffs are too tight. So check for tingling or numbness. If there is it should be gone in 24-48 hours but if it doesn't go away that person should go to urgent care.
