The transcripts of the Grand Jury testimonies about the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

Correct. Dr. , he may have called this abrasion. In my opinion an abrasion is superficial. It's basically the very most outer layer of the skin is just kind of worn away and it is a blunt force injury. It is either your body impact a blunt object like a baseball bat or something flat or blunt object impact your body. That is what an abrasion is, it is very superficial.

This is deeper, it goes through the outer layers of skin. You can actually start to see a little bit of the deeper dermis and the subcutaneous tissue within that wound.

The only other thing that would be on differential for this is a laceration, which is also a blunt force injury. We see them all the time in contact sports, people that get hit in boxing, they get lacerations, the skin rips.

Again, I think this is a sharp force injury, a superficial incised wound.
