As disturbing as the photo is, Ronald insists it's a good thing it was leaked because there is now no doubt that the injuries she sustained were as severe as it was first reported.
"It's good and it's bad to see the picture because there's other people who were thinking differently, that [Rihanna's injuries] may not be that bad, just a little spank or a little thing."
Chris Brown's friends tried to downplay her injuries claiming the attack is "not as bad as everybody is trying to gas it up to be." Well photos don't lie and clearly it IS as bad as everybody made it out to be.
The LAPD has launched an investigation in regards to the leaked photo. "A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with penalties up to and including termination," police said.
What are your thoughts on the photo? Is it a good thing or should it have been kept under wraps?
In one sense it helps bring awareness about domestic violence, but on the other hand, it's a very personal issue and Rihanna was certainly exploited.
