The report is that the bullet that lodged in the police officer\’s radio was actually a police issue bullet.
From what I\’ve seen it\’s a hollow point. Which is indeed what is police issue. And yes, it is illegal for most of us to get ahold of such ammunition.
Except if you happen to be a farmer or stalker who needs to control deer or other large wildlife. Agreed, not a lot of farmers or deer in Tottenham.
But are we all entirely happy to conclude that such limitedly legal ammunition could not under any circumstances end up in the hands of someone the police would like to arrest?
I agree, it could be that the bullet was indeed police issue and that there\’s more to find out. But that it was a hollow point does not prove (note, prove rather than indicate) that it was police issue.
