What if there was no video of the Walter Scott shooting?

A lot of people would still know that Walter Scott was shot in the back even without the video. As any paramedic or coroner can tell you, entrance wounds tend to be smaller than exit wounds. Depending on state laws and circumstances, HIPAA rules may prevent this kind of information from being released to family members. I propose that in the event of a homicide, all immediate family members should have access to any medical records related to the killing. Granted, grieving family members don't want to read the gory details, but they should have the right to turn that info over to an attorney or anyone else who they want to investigate the matter. If someone gets fatally shot, the family should have a right to know what angle the shots came from.
