New York Assemblyman Robert Castelli (R-89) tells Ginny Simone that a bill calling for police to inflict nonlethal wounds with firearms is unrealistic and dangerous. Castelli, who formerly served as a state trooper, says that it is impossible in a combat situation to simply wound an armed suspect in the arm or leg. While the legislators in support of the bill may have good intentions, the bill's contents reflect a lack of real-world experience and would put law enforcement officers at risk if passed.
