Sometimes even experienced law enforcement officers vomit at crime scenes. An ex-Chicago cop once told me about being at a site where a pedestrian had been hit by a train, and several of the officers had trouble keeping it together. In a well-known case in San Francisco where a woman was killed by her neighborâ€™s dogs, the officers at the scene needed counseling long after the investigation.
Then again, why I can draw dismembered bodies without blinking an eye, but shy away from drawing Kate barfing? I cannot say.
