I Think I Know
Interesting article on CNN
A Brazilian woman who was shot six times in the head after an altercation with her ex-husband was out of the hospital and talking to the media on Saturday...I saw something like this before in Canada. The problem, if you can call it that, was that .32 caliber bullets were used in a .38 caliber gun, or some similar caliber mismatch. The bullets came out with much less than full power, thankfully in both cases. I don't know if this was the problem in the Brazillian case, but I'll wager a guess that it was.
Doctors could not explain why the .32-caliber bullets did not penetrate Pereira's skull and didn't even need to be extracted immediately.
