Modern crossbow & bolt vs. ballistic armor

The armor ain't happy

We must ban Cop Killer Crossbows, for the children.

The armor-wearing cop children, to be specific.

The armor probably could care less; those wearing the armor, they might be just a little uncomfortable after seeing that vid.

I think someone did the same test using a bow and standard hunting arrow; just about the same result. These things are NOT made to stop cutting implements of this type.

And stab-resistant armor sucks at stopping bullets.

For all-around protection cops are going to look like the Pillsbury Dough Boy/Michilen Man. (Which might not be a bad idea.)

stay safe.
