    replied to Is the 9mm not an effective caliber?
    After the FBI Miami disaster in '86, they held a wound ballistics conference which resulted in the 'FBI Protocol' for testing ammo.

  • Realtors are always looking at houses.
    I used to use a simple traffic cone and hard hat. Park, and get the cone out of the trunk an place it at the left rear corner of the car, as required by all the utilities in the area at the time. Then I would throw the hard hat on the dash. When the kids...

    replied to Miranda rights
    Tanksoldier et al are right, BUT - the police do NOT "give" you your rights, they are codified in the 5th Amendment to the Constitution. And everyone has the right to remain silent, even if not arrested. If someone gets arrested the officer may choose to not interview/interrogate that person...

    Movies is Magic!
    Cops always get the parking spot they need, no reports are required from a shooting, the lead actor never gets seriously wounded, the wounded bad guys can always make a speech, and the women are always beautiful and the men handsome.

    Oh yes, and the investigator...

  • Let's look at this objectively:
    A 17 year old travels across state lines to attend a riot. (Motive is not important.) He is reported to have a first aid kit, a fire extinguisher, and a rifle carried openly at the riot. He is alone, not part of any group.
