In today’s video we are going to do some Paul Harrell type science, and talk about bouncing bullets off of cars. When a bullet ricochets off of the hard surface it deflects and maintains the majority of its energy, making them quite dangerous still. This topic was brought up in my mind while watching police recap videos from Donut Operator and Mike the Cop. Body cam and dash cam footage can tell us a great deal about lethal force encounters. One thing I repeatedly see in these videos is approach to vehicles doesn’t line up with what I have learned about how bullets act when they hit hard things. I set up a test, allowing us to measure this effect.
