Here's an excerpt from a NY Times article: "According to statistics released by the [NYPD] department, 15 innocent bystanders were struck by police officers using full metal jacket bullets during 1995 and 1996, the police said. Eight were hit directly, five were hit by bullets that had passed through other people,
and two were hit by bullets that had passed through other objects."
The article continues: In that same period, 44 police officerswere struck by gun fire using the old ammunition(9mm 115 gr. FMJ) 21 were hit directly, 2 were struck by bullets that ricocheted and 17 were struck by bullets that had passed through other people
That means that approx. 42-46% of these shootings were caused by an overpenetrating bullet that went through a human target and struck another human being.
The article is in the May 2008 issue of Combat Handguns, page 8, titled: Danger of Hardball Defense Ammo Alert.
Hope this shed some light on the argument of FMJ vs. JHP.
