Flap over showing medical students plane crash photos from MH17

A Dutch medical and forensic professor got slammed by some bureaucrat for lecturing students with the aid of the Malaysia Air plane crash victims’ remains. Apparently some journalists snuck into his professional presentation. The main issue regarding post or ante mortem photo evidence is protecting the identities of the victims via insuring anonymity of victims. A few US jurisdictions directly prohibit use of any public representations of case work. Im not sure how all the reality forensic shows handle this issue unless they get written permission of privacy release from victims and/or surviving family.
