there's a whole cinematic universe of thin [colour] lines:

pour one out for the brave dispatchers
They’re probably the most likely to die young out of all of them, but that’s because the dispatcher lifestyle is to a heart attack as a hammer is to a nail. I worked somewhere that had two dispatchers die in a month, and I knew one dispatcher that had died and been revived twice. Everyone called him Pet Semetary because that dude came back wrong. Such a dick after that.

And what the gently caress is going on with the emergency medical services one? Even dumb schmatlzy flag crap has them be an afterthought again.

Ugh I know so many EMTs with those stupid flag stickers on the back of their pickup trucks they can’t afford and never use for pickup truck stuff. They’re the worst.

Dr. Atkins died of a massive coronary.

He slipped on ice and bashed his head. He ended up dying from surgical complications when they did surgery to remove a clot.

He did have possible cardiomyopathy though.

Hell, in Judaism (and I assume in most other religions) it even allows breaking the laws if it means saving a life. Doctors can work on the Sabbath or you can eat non kosher food if you are starving to death etc.
Anyone that denies life saving treatment is just looking to be an idiot martyr

There’s an interesting case of that with a Hasidic ambulance service in NY that has non-Jewish drivers to drive the ambulance back from the hospital. They can drive to the scene and to the hospital, since a life is at risk (99 percent of the time not really, but technically sure), and they can drive to the hospital with the same reasoning, but once they’ve turned over the patient, no driving!

I mean, don't hollow points mushroom and have fun times with your insides instead of going straight through? Considering the context, i'd guess it's a detail that indicates his interest in not just killing you, but making sure it hurts? Armor penetration isn't exactly a consideration with a loving grocery store security guard (though I guess they're all armed now, so a vest doesn't seem that off-brand).

The whole point is they’re less likely to overpenetrate and go through your target and hit someone else, and that the expansion means it does more damage to what you’re shooting. Both are important if you’re shooting to defend yourself, since if the situation is bad enough you’re shooting at someone you want the threat to end as soon as possible. They’re not made to be more painful or whatever. Problem is this guys a nutter who just wants to shoot someone.

Also they don’t have increased armor penetration, that’s weird 90’s media stuff misunderstanding certain rounds.
