on a man who drew cats. Think you may like his work. However it is also a sad story of mental illness in the 20's.

This is a normal post i'd absolutely love one
but alas, money.

a friend of mine studied his work a while back and found an interesting article that argued his change in painting style was not completely hinged on his schizophrenia, more to do with the treatment he got from the people who were selling them for him, and putting them on post-cards. He made no money (hence the poor ward in the asylum house he was saved from) and that he was still in contract to produce pictures so started drawing like he did to upset his employers. it seemed a little far-fetched but worth reading if you're interested. i'll see if i can find it.

Don't see this story as a bad thing.
If an armed police officer is firing at you he is shooting to kill every time. There is no "Shoot to wound"
There are "non" leather devices like tasers for that but even those carry a risk.

What this does do though is protect bystanders as you're less likely to get a "through and through".

Tazers have a limited range. Hollow points, you wont be walking away from that one, I dont see the need as things haven't escalated to the point where firearms officers are in short supply. They can still shoot to wound ,carry automatics, heavily armoured.

I just cant see why?
(, Thu 12 May 2011, 8:22, Reply)
This is a normal post Not sure if I get you.. It's not about upping the ante because there's a shortage of armed officers
It's about changing the ammunition that they carry from something that can pass through the target into a bystander to something that will certainly do more damage but wont be as much of a risk to others.

Armed air marshals I believe carry hollow points for the same reason.

Shooting to wounds is just not possible.
If an officer is in a situation where they get away with just wounding the suspect then they shouldn't have taken the shot in the first place.
(, Thu 12 May 2011, 8:31, Reply)
This is a normal post Shooting to wound is a phrase used by people who have watched too many movies
In the movie, the hero gets tagged in the arm or leg and carries on fighting.

In real life anywhere you get hit you are in serious danger of bleeding to death fast. People don't survive gunshots because of being shot somewhere less serious, they survive based on the quality and speed with which medical care gets to them.

you can get shot in the stomach and survive, but you can get shot in the leg an bleed out in seconds. There is no safe place to shoot someone.

This is a normal post I meant its not really the USA
A couple of nutters with guns have appeared in the news but seems like overkill to me.
Shooting to wound will be vaunted by the police as fiction, especially in the case of a suspect they've turned into a colander. The police are set up in measured controlled procedure in the case of a shooting, primarily for their own safety. This doesn't make for a 'I had to kill because it was him or me ' situation. Im not really anti-police, Im just very wary with new powers as I tend to ask the question ' in that situation, if it was a mistake, would I be able to walk away' see Jean Charles de Menezes
(yes I know they didn't use hollow points, but it was a mistake all the same)

This is a normal post Been thinking about this.
I can see the logic behind the decision - increased stopping power against threats, less likelyhood of a round fragmenting or going straight through the target and harming bystanders etc. It still feels excessive to me though. Surely a highly trained firearms officer should only need one shot with a regular round to take someone down. Also, what if the officer misses, or the Police have the wrong target?
The way I see it, JHPs are going to amplify the results, good *and* bad. Bit of a double-edged sword.

This is a normal post ...yeah.
Not sure your exit wound logic works. JHPs don't always stop inside a target. If they don't, the exit wound they leave is massively larger than a standard round.

As I said, I can see the logic in the Police issuing them from an anti-terror perspective. I find myself wondering how many suicide vest-equipped terrorists the Met have had to shoot in the past decade, and how many of those were able to trigger their bomb due to not being dead after the first bullet. Is that *really* a justification?
I'm a little wary of people in power making these changes under the excuse of "the terrorist threat" which, to be honest, we've seen pretty much cock-all of in this country; MI5 and "Counter Terrorism Command" (ie Special Branch) seem more than adept enough at intercepting terrorists before they strike. Are JHPs *really* necessary for standard firearms coppers, who traditionally deal with idiots waving guns about rather than loony suicide bombers?

That was proper police brutality. Gettin run down and trampled by horses, having your clavicle broken with a baton as a standard method of bringing someone down.
Thats police brutality. Check out choke holding. Check out beatings with rubber hoses.

Not saying it's perfect but the police force these days is nowhere near as brutal is it was 20 years ago.
Having to stand around and really needed a piss is not the worse crime the force has commited.

tbh celebs are celebs cos they want celebrity, they want us to buy their stuff, watch them play footy, cook etc, and make them famous. so they open up their lives to us and let us in, then they do a naughty and its all "oh, noes, my private life, please mr judge wont you think of poor old me/my family." Crass.

The other thing with injunctions is that there are loads more that we don't even know about, we only hear about the celeb ones...

"http://mirror.wikileaks.info/wiki/Guardian_still_under_secret_toxic_waste_gag/"

"It is not the only one. Last month, the Guardian revealed that it had been served with 10 secret gag orders—so-called "super-injunctions"— since January. In 2008, the paper was served with six. In 2007, five. Haven't heard of these? Of course not, these are secret gag orders; the UK press has given up counting regular injunctions."

This is a normal post You're Missing The Point....
Assange, apart from being an *incredible* hypocrite with a messiah complex, wants the "public interest" to be whatever the public is interested in and so, anyone who comes into the press's radar, automagically loses any right, to any privacy whatsoever. Don't forget, it's largely the press who decide who is or isn't newsworthy.

Take her "Royal Hotness" Pippa Middleton. Is she fair game? Just because her sister married an inbred?

Justifying phone tapping on the grounds that someone is "famous" is sick. And, where do you draw the line, if anywhere? Suppose me and my mates in the pub decide that we're interested in the new family that's moved into the area. We're part of the public, we're interested in them so, according to Asshats arguments, we'd be completely justified in tapping their phones, reading their mail and hacking their computers. Information wants to be free.

And, to justify the hypocritical slur, can you remember when Assange screamed like a virgin when the Guardian published details of Swedish allegations against him? For a media-whore like him to object to the publication really took the biscuit.

This is a normal post I'm not sure what you mean
If you've got to the point where you're shooting a gun at a criminal, chances are things have already got a bit OTT. At least they'll be effective.

This is a normal post If that's an argument at all, its for disarming the police completely
My point is that, if the police are in a situation where they have to fire their weapons, 9/10 they're intending to kill that person. If they don't want to kill the person they'll use the wide variety of non-lethal weapons they have- tasers, attack dogs, bean bag rounds, baton rounds, tear gas etc.

You can't say you want to give the police lethal force and then say "but you can't use those bullets, you might kill them".

This is a normal post FMJ bullets leave an exit wound, which is generally a lot more horrific than an entry wound
Hollowpoints not only have more stopping power but also 'tumble' and stay lodged in the flesh.

FMJ's are really quite barbaric and outdated. The only reason the military don't use them is because of a stupid peace treaty dating back to WWI that prevents them from making a more informed contemporary choice.

This is a normal post I think the point is;
There may be something / someone *behind* the exit wound that you don't want to hit. These bullets would eliminate that risk.

This is a normal post "Hollow point bullets are prohibited to the public"
Errm No, they're not.
High standard of reporting as usual.

If they REALLY want to stop someone they should use Glaser safety slugs.

This is a normal post They would be better off giving them some .44 magnums and hollow points
Might breed a load of dirty harry clones but at least it would give them a fighting chance - going into a gunfight against heavily armed terrorists with nothing more than a handgun is akin to pissing in the wind.

My cat tries to get me out of bed in the morning to give him fresh food instead of eating what's already in his bowl. He's learned that if I don't get up, he can start dragging shit off my bedside cabinet to make me get up. Little fucker.
