    I wonder if any officers were shot with one of their vests and it failed to stop the bullet,could be a potential for a multi million dollar lawsuit

    IIRC, Zylon was the cause of the demise of Second Chance. They did indeed have an Officer shot by a projectile that the vest should have stopped. The suit was enough to put the premier armor companies totally out of business.

    All I ever use my old Threat Level III vest for is a safe backstop for loading and unloading my weapons so I don't ever put a hole in my floor!

    4Mil. is all ?! If there was an officer injured because of this there should be AT LEAST 1 zero after that, if not 2. They let this run for four years knowing they were defective!!!
