We ran a fatal MVA last week. The ambulance crew AND their supervisor were taking pictures of the body, covered and uncovered. Chief stood there and said nothing to them. The service I work for will terminate you for taking pictures of a patient, dead or alive. I wasn't command, or I would have said something.
If I take pictures on scene I try not to get the body in the shot. I will post action shots, but not victims. We do have permission from the DA if it is a violent scene to doccument it in case the Troopers forget(again) to take pictures of the body. Almost screwed up a DWI manslaughter case because there were no pictures of the bodies.
I personally don't see a problem with people taking pictures of a fire! I have a bigger problem with FF's taking pictures at a scene instead of working
I don't mind the people with cameras. It's the damm painters with there easels that bug the hell out of me!
