Stacey walks in when a robbery is being committed and is shot. They learn that she was shot with bullets that penetrate the protective vests that police officers wear. Hooker is determined to find the one who shot her even if it means jeopardizing his career.
Did You Know?
Armor piercing (AP) bullets will penetrate a Kevlar vest as was used by officers in the 1980's, but it would not remain inside the body as was shown. Wounds such as the ones described are caused by regular bullets that deform and deflect- something AP bullets do not do. The AP bullet would have most likely exited the rear of the body armor, at worst it would be stopped by the back panel of the armor. Additionally, the force of the bullet would not throw even a lightweight person like Stacy as was shown, so she would not have received the head injury as described. In reality, AP bullets are terrible for stopping a human being. Stacy would have been able to draw her gun and return fire. See more
