It doesnt bother me what ammo my cops use, i cant buy it or use it in any weapon but then im almost not likly to be shot by the cops because you know, im a good boy.
UK police are using A LOT more tasers anyways, when the armed responce DOES turn up, i want them to be as tooled up as possible if that means otherwise illegal firearms to stop a baby killing psyco, so be it.
We got bigger probrams than the round in our guns, besaides if you want to talk about dangerous ammos, take a look at the depleated urianium rounds left all over the place by allied forces, even after they are fired they cause pain and suffering on those not even shot at (years after even!)

How does the law differentiate between civilians and military targets? Why do the Police deliberately pick munitions that they know will inflict the maximum damage? I suppose they want to stop the person at which they are shooting at and not have the bullets pass through and hit someone else, but hollow points seem a bit extreme to my mind, but I am not a munitions expert, maybe someone else more knowledgeable can comment on that?
