There's a lot here about how to use video as a citizen journalist anywhere, not just in Rio.

Matheson stressed the importance of so-called linkage evidence — license-plate numbers, military-uniform patterns, close-ups of official documentation — that could be used to place individual perpetrators in a chain of command. Without linkage evidence, you had an individual actor: a rogue cop or soldier who might as well be acting in a vacuum. With it, you had the power to hold responsible an entire police unit or army battalion.
