Street Stoppers II
If you're a regular visitor to this web site, you should be aware that Street
Stoppers II is in progress. The contracts have been signed, the advance
checks received and spent, and now Ed and I are laboring away. It is
fascinating how fast and how far technology has come. This web site was
something that my son Matt prodded me into doing and it has been a pleasant
surprise how popular it has become. The visitor counter on the bottom of
the home page has only been in place since the beginning of July.
Street Stoppers II will consist of similar topics as its predecessors but there
will be new statistics and sources. I'm in the process of concluding
negotiations with two major agencies in this country to have access to their
shootings. These two agencies are involved in a lot of gun fights and
have substantial databases. Additionally, I've been able to develop
sources in Central and South America that have provided a significant number of
shootings. While most of this data involves full metal jacketed or solid
lead rounds they are still of importance. One agency in South America
recently shared a huge database on shootings with; Winchester 9MM Silver Tip
115gr jhp, Winchester 115gr +p+ jhp, Winchester 12 gauge 00 buck shot, and
Federal .357 Magnum 125 grain jhp. I was quite excited to get those
results and they'll be included.
In addition to that, I've decided to allow individuals to submit shooting
reports to: Documented Shootings, PO BOX 2671, Midland, MI 48641-2671.
The criteria and consequences of submitting such data will be spelled out in
detail on another page of this web site. I, of course, will not identify
my sources but my attorney has indicated that I'll be on sound legal ground to
name anyone who sends me spurious data in an attempt to set me up.
Regardless of where you live in this country (including Hawaii and Alaska) I
have an individual in place who can and will check out the facts to see that
this event actually took place. When people are willing to spread all
sorts of unsupported lies about me I'd be foolish to think that they'd hesitate
to use this approach.
Additionally, Street Stoppers II is in early enough stages that YOU can have
some input. Feel free to email me
with ideas on chapters or subjects. Please understand that these subjects have
to be broad based enough to appeal to large groups of readers. You may have a
burning desire to know how the .32-20 performs in gelatin out of a 4 5/8"
Single Action Colt, but you may be the only one.
Finally, I want to thank all of you who have emailed us or participated in the
pages, message forum, newsgroup, etc. at www.stoppingpower.net.
Whether you've agreed or not I value your input. I hope that we are all
engaged in a search for the truth and that you view that effort as an effort
among equals. While I'm fully aware that I'm the one who is either famous or
notorious (depending on your point of view), I checked my ego at the door along
time ago and consider all of you friends I haven't yet met.
