cheekWashington Post, November 27, 1879. I’m guessing that photographs weren’t yet admissible as evidence, even though the art of photography was more than sufficiently advanced at this time to serve that purpose.



  1. It’s strange what evidence is and is not admissible in court. Photographs may not have been proven reliable, but it’s not as if witness testimony is always 100% accurate, complete, or honest. Even when witnesses are not intentionally being deceptive, not many people have a truly perfect memory, and events get distorted.

    • For that matter, the defense could have stomped on the cheek themselves.
