Jordan repeatedly said he did not remember taking photographs because he has blocked that day out of his memory since retiring in early 2021.

I didn't know you could walk off a witness stand.   Contempt of Court?  Bad law thingie?

Unless I'm missing something, he was tasked to take photos of the scene and then shared them with someone else in his department. I'm not so sure I see the outrage.

We learned in Dobbs there is no right to privacy so the law against taking and sharing pictures is invalid.

The person who showed them to their bartender was one of the witnesses, a trainee who shouldn't have received the photos in the first place.

"Testimony continued with a series of Los Angeles County sheriff deputies who received and shared the sensitive photos with each other, one of whom was a trainee who showed the photos to a bartender he considered a friend."


The guy on the stand isn't even the one who shared the photos. Sounds like the photos were sent to the sheriff's department for their investigation, and a trainee shared them with his bartender.

Because it's his job to NOT do that.
I remember in the olden days when I used to look at this graphic website I will not name, but it cataloged crash scene, people burned up, all that gross stuff.  You don't put that out in public, and I can see why.  It's a primary rule of his job, or I hope it is. That's why we don't have pictures of  Anne Heche's dead body all over the internet, even though it's news and we really, really need to know what the hell happened there.

I hear what you're saying and agree. But, at least in this case, it sounds to me like it was a farkup and not some sort of...I dunno...planned thing to do to screw with the family. I mean, the images are apparently NOT out there. Is it really worth some sort of lawsuit?

Bullshiat.  Ever been through Driver's Ed?  One of the things they do is show you photos of actual accident scenes, complete with smeared brains across the roadway, among other bloody remains.  People are just bent that a celebrity's remains have been photographed.

A railroad guy visited one day and shared a reel of cars totally clobbered by trains. We watched the video of a Metra locomotive completely smashing a woman who mistakenly ran out in front of it. You can find the video online but I'm not linking it here.

The person who took the pictures did not, repeat, did NOT share them with the bartender, OR with the trainee who shared them with the bartender. All he did was take the pictures for investigative purposes, as is required by law.

ALL of that information is in the linked article.

You are not missing anything.

Badly written article and subbys horrible reading comprehension are to blame here.

The guy who took the photos is the one who has the trauma. He is the one who left the stand. He took the pictures as part of the job.

The photos were turned in:  Other cops, including supervisors, shared them with eachother. A set was given to a rookie ( for training purposes, supposedly.

The rookie shared them to a bartender who he considered a friend.

I don't know if you jest or not, but years ago a volunteer fireman was arrested for committing multiple arsons.   It wasn't the local cops or even the local newspaper that were suspicious.   The insurance adjusters became suspicious of this 'hero' after they noticed he was calling in all these fires that he just happened to 'stumble upon'.
