A bullet attachment that could save lives?


THEM ANOTHER OPTION. SARA SIDNER HAS MORE.>>THIS IS THE ALTERNATIVE.>>IT’S LIKE AN AIRBAG FOR A BULLET.>>IT LOOKS LIKE A TOY THAT ATTACHES TO A REAL GUN, BUT IT’S NOTHING TO PLAY WITH. THE NEW DEVICE IS INTENDED TO GIVE A SUSPECT ONE LAST CHANCE TO LIVE.>>PUT THE KNIFE DOWN, SIR!>>Reporter: WHEN POLICE DECIDE THE SITUATION IS DANGEROUS ENOUGH TO USE LETHAL FORCE.>>IT WAS CREATED BY A RETIRED SHERIFF’S OFFICER. HE DID NOT LIKE THE FACT THAT PEOPLE WERE BEING SHOT WHEN THE OFFICERS HAVE TIME, BUT NO OTHER OPTION THAN LETHAL FORCE. >>Reporter: THE MAKERS SAY IT’S FOR USE ONLY WHEN AN OFFICER HAS THREE SECONDS OR MORE TO REACT. WHAT DOES IT DO TO THE BODY?>>IT WILL BE LIKE GETTING HIT WITH A HAMMER.>>THE BULLET TRAVELS ABOUT 1/5 THE SPEED OF A BULLET.>>CAN IT KILL YOU?>>THERE’S A POSSIBILITY IT COULD KILL YOU, BUT IT’S VERY SLIGHT WHEN YOU COMPARE IT TO A BULLET.>>Reporter: AFTER NINE YEARS IN DEVELOPMENT, IT’S READY. IT COMES AS POLICE ACROSS THE COUNTRY FACE INTENSE SCRUTINY AND POST OVER THE KILLINGS OF UNARMED SUSPECTS. SO FAR, THERE IS ONLY ONE POLICE DEPARTMENT IN AMERICA THAT HAS DECIDED TO TEST THE DEVICE. FERGUSON, MISSOURI. YES, THAT FERGUSON. THE DEPARTMENT THAT BECAME THE CATALYST FOR NATIONWIDE PROTESTS AGAINST POLICE TACTICS, AFTER ITS OFFICER SHOT TO DEATH UNARMED TEENAGER MICHAEL BROWN.>>WHY IS FERGUSON LOOKING AT THIS DEVICE?>>THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE JUST HAPPENED TO RUN ACROSS. ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING THE OUTCRY ABOUT SAVING LIVES. EVEN LIVES OF PEOPLE THAT YOU’RE TRYING TO APPREHEND. THAT THIS MIGHT BE SOMETHING THAT WAS WORTH LOOKING INTO.>>BUT SOME FORMER LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS HAVE HUGE RESERVATIONS ABOUT IT, SAYING IT COULD DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD, ESPECIALLY TO OFFICERS.>>THESE SITUATIONS ESCALATE VIRTUALLY INSTANTANEOUSLY. IF YOU HAD SUCH A DEVICE AVAILABLE, TO BE QUITE FRANK WITH YOU, YOU COULD NOT TRANSITION TO LETHAL FORCE FAST ENOUGH TO SAVE YOUR LIFE.>>THE MAKERS OF THE ALTERNATIVE SAY THEIR TESTS SHOWS OTHERWISE. THE DEVICE ONLY WORKS FOR THE FIRST SHOT. INTENDED TO STOP, NOT KILL A SUSPECT. BUT IF THAT DOESN’T WORK, THE GUN IS READY TO FIRE LETHAL ROUNDS IN A SPLIT SECOND. EVERYTHING DISENGAGES FROM THE WEAPON AND THE OFFICER IS READY TO GO WITH THE BULLETS WHEN NEEDED.>>HOWEVER THE DEVICE HAS NOT BEEN TESTED IN REAL-LIFE SITUATIONS ON REAL HUMAN BEINGS. WITH THE OUTCRY OF POLICE TACTICS, FOR NOW, IT’S

  1. These people know nothing. If there is a man who is coming at you with a knife, or a gun, some metal ball isn’t going to save you.

  2. 1 last chance,,,, BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH,,, dont follow my commands your birth certificate will get revoked

  3. it does not have a multi shot potential it has an orange tip and in the heat of the moment i'd forget to put it on

  4. why are people saying nerf or nothing, i bet this metal ball getting shot at armed or unarmed people would be better than real bullets. would you want to get shot my a bullet or a metal ball? stfu people

  5. Cnn you dont know anything about guns so of course you would have a video about this junk.
    Also michel brown got what he deserved

  6. Why would it matter if it was a baseball player hitting you with a hammer? Why not just anyone who can swing a hammer good

  7. A bullet is meant to save the lives of the people behind the gun. Not the Scumbag on the business end. (Excluding murder as these wouldn't be used)

  8. Michael Brown was not a teenager.
    He was a legal adult and a thug that weighed almost three hundred pounds, and tried to kill the police officer who shot him.

  9. Good idea I suppose but much better to educate youth to especially respect police officers …that any level of pride and rebellion manifesting as approaching LETHALLY ARMED police officers that in fear of their OWN LIVES….Kids need to be taught that these men and women can and WILL use lethal force if threatened in anyway they don't feel good about ….What you can NOT reinforce is any idea WHATSOEVER that youth or anyone else has ANY expectation of remaining "safe" if they approach officers after being instructed to "STOP" …."hands where I can see them" :lie down on the ground" etc ….Want to get someone KILLED? Go ahead and encourage people to challenge officers and approach them etc….Right or wrong it is just plain FOOLISH to approach a frightened lethally armed police officer! It is CRIMINAL (I think) to encourage anyone to challenge officers…these are highly FALLIBLE people (as are we ALL) that very well could be shaking in their boots! Just swallow the damn pride and follow their stupid instructions and LIVE! Being a dead martyr? is just IGNORANT DUMB ASS as can be! Just lay on the ground or whatever dumb ass thing they instruct you to do ….save all the anger for a complaint against the officer AFTERWARDS …Do NOT let you foolish pride KILL you and provoke a bunch more racial SHIT….

    Yes I am a white man and maybe don't understand as well as I might ….but DAMN I wish a whole lot more blacks would be a service to their fellow man and pursue jobs as black police officers! Departments are SCREAMING FOR SUCH! Who better can make a real difference?? Ya know?

  10. I love how they simply say "unarmed teenager was shot". Rather than saying "Robbery suspect, who attempted to grab the officers gun (his finger prints were found on it later), assaulted the officer while attempting to unarm him, and failed to follow repeated orders to get down on the ground was shot". Has a different ring to it when you actually add in what happened. CNN just always trying to stir up trouble.

  11. How to not get shot by Police? Don't do crime, and cooperate with Police when instructed. Rocket science 101

  12. These fucking protesters are protesting the wrong thing. Instead of having less of a police force, we need less people living off the government's money and more people going into the military

  13. I thought this was gonna be something to protect our children in case they accidentally stumbled a gun that was supposed to be out up

  14. ……while Ferguson police officer shot an killed an unarmed teenager, Michael Brown. Yeah a 6"5" teenager who just robbed a storeclerk and was telling the cop he was a "pussy and you wont shoot me" then reached in the squad car and tried to take the officers firearm!

  15. ooo I know, just put bird shot in the gun…. that will sure give u another chance to live. but hey I like the whole turn a 9mm into a 12g slug 🙂 and the whole YA it could kill ya, but a bullet WILL kill ya…. dude must be retarded to say that. next hell say fully semi automatic…. 😉

    btw over 4y into the future…. no ones heard of this. guess its as shit as it sounds

  16. A firearm's purpose is lethal force. If you need less than lethal force, use a tool made for that purpose like a Taser, baton or pepper spray. Even if this were effective, the fact that you have to draw your gun and then put that orange thing on it wastes way too much time, which is really valuable in a situation where someone might stab you.

  17. FUCKING RETARDED… 1st off Mr Brown was a punkass criminal who fought the popo and died… his fault. 2nd point…installing this device tells a Jury you didnt think your life was at risk…so why did you end up killing the suspect? You shot twice, why didnt you give him a chance to re-think his actions?…

  18. Oh Poor lil Mikie. He was Such a good boy "In his Gang Cut" who just finished Strong Arm Robing the local store And Attacked the officer Even got the Gun for a short time Then when he had a Big enough Audience Then he Antagonized the officer saying Come On Shoot me,,,
    So in fear of his life the officer gave Brown what he Asked for

  19. I know a much better and easier way to save lives. Just strike down the Supreme Court ruling that allowed abortion, and over a million lives a year will be saved.

  20. Robbers: the most I could lose is getting broken bones if I rob or kill someone? Not bad! Thanks to retarded CNN, now my workplace is safer!

  21. This is a stupid idea – perps don’t care about non-lethal or even usually lethal threats. Then you even make it bright orange? Retarded.

  22. Just aim to legs or shoot below the hip if you don't wanna kill the guy ! Helooooo !! I don't have time for this nerf

  23. This is a good concept to prevent accidental deaths, sure it's still possible to die from it but being whacked by a small ball sized hammer is better than a bullet going through an artery, I hope it does spread once tested in real scenarios to ensure it's safer and effective

  24. Ahahahahah theres the 40mm grenade launcher for $1300 usd and it fires those little foam 'ouch rounds' that physically cannot kill you unless you have an already existing problem… ffs each cop needs a 9mm, mace, 40mm, and armalite rifle 15

  25. Ahahahahah theres the 40mm grenade launcher for $1300 usd and it fires those little foam 'ouch rounds' that physically cannot kill you unless you have an already existing problem… ffs each cop needs a 9mm, mace, 40mm, and armalite rifle 15

  29. Or they could just bring back public hangings and make examples and maybe that guy might think twice about committing that crime

  30. Ferguson Missouri I live in Missouri I see a lot of things about people getting shot but I don't see anyone getting pummeled with a major league baseball player using a baseball bat so I don't know am I in the right place

  31. "should only be used when the cop has 3 seconds or more to react"… WTF are they TRYING to get cops killed??? Yeah, with adrenaline flowing and some bad shit going down, and my fine muscle dexterity going to hell, that's what I want to think about… "hmmm, do I have enough time to put my bullet condom on? let me try to get it out and try to put it on." So freaking dumb. And of course it's CNN pushing it.

  32. Less lethal! Less-lethal! BANG!
    Ah, he's still Black..I mean alive…uh er… Unconscious person, I feel threatened! bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang *click*
    *thud* *chkchk*
    Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang bang…
