Response to Bjorn Against (Original post)

17. Great post… I remember when hollow-point bullets were called "cop-killer bullets"...

…because they broke into fragments upon penetrating the body to do maximum tissue damage to the target.

But, guess what? During this trial, I learned that Zimmerman's use of hollow-point bullets was actually very reasonable of him. By loading his gun with eight hollow-point bullets, he could shoot a "suspect" whenever he needed and avoid potentially injuring someone else, because those bullets would disintegrate in the "suspect's torso." That's reasonable, right?
