Bullet travels a mile, hits DelCo woman in hospital bed
#1
1 mile = 1760 yards.

In Philly that's the equivalent of approximately 10 blocks. Quite a distance for it to strike. So the bullet came from Chester, crossed over 95, and then hit her? Mmmm...

UPLAND — A bullet that authorities said could have traveled more than one mile struck a 62-year-old woman in her bed at Crozer-Chester Medical Center late Monday.

“Fortunately, no organs were struck,” said Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan during a hastily arranged press conference at the hospital emergency room entrance at noon on Tuesday.

The bullet could have traveled up to in excess of one mile. Nothing but speculation. And they won't say what caliber it is. I'm betting a 9mm.

Assuming a pistol round, at over a mile how much velocity and power would have it lost? Still enough power to break a window and penetrate flesh?

Obviously alarmist hyperbole to avoid looking like he's making the obvious assumptions.

The bad neighborhood where a "shots fired" call came in simultaneous with the incident is a "stone's throw" from the hospital, in the correct direction.

Probably some Philly cop trying to get his GF's attention.

I'm turning in all of my guns. Obviously, if we didn't have any, random people wouldn't get hit by random bullets.

Just remove all your firing pins, bend them or melt them down, then get rid of all your ammo. Then don't forget to fill the barrels with lead.

Then take all those horrid death bringers and hang them on the living room wall as a reminder to how evil the world use to be.

You wouldn't be able to run as many people over with that car if it didn't drive as far. It should only have a 10 gallon fuel tank.

Yes, the bullet could have traveled over a mile. Or it could have traveled less than 50 feet.

As for the DA saying that no organs were struck, it shows the common intelligence of an official in that area. Skin is actually the largest organ. So either it hit her, or it didn't strike an organ. I understand what he is saying. But I think he needs to rethink things before being quoted on the internet.

It actually struck her in the piano.
