It’s Called Research

and I know I shouldn’t expect television production assistants or writers to do it, especially with regards to guns (I’m looking at you, Falling Skies – where did Ben get an H&K G36C? Especially in Massachusetts).

But this is the height of silliness from Law and Order SVU: Lead:  “Found any spent rounds?”CSI Tech:  “Not yet, but I did find these .44 casings.”

Think about it.

H/T to Chris.

    So the perp ejected his REVOLVER on a crime scene?

    Why does stupid only hurt me? You can hear the sound of palm meeting face and head meeting desk there, can’t you?

    Not to mention the very definition of spent round is finding the casing…. Unless you go mining berms on a regular basis for lead…

    Lemme guess, it was a Glock chambered in .44 Spagnum…. Since they couldn’t figure out which one was eviler.

    “Excellent! So we know that either the killer was mentally handicapped, or he used a Deagle. Johnson, go check the gun stores. Williams, ask the Special People Halfway House if they’re missing anybody.”

      Just for the sake of realism I’m going to go with “Killer dropped a .44 shell casing to throw us off the scent while having strangled the victim and staged it to look like a shooting. Because handguns are illegal in NYC so clearly one couldn’t have been used.” Man, I don’t miss New York much at all.

    And if its a .44, then its probably a Special. If it were a magnum he would read that on the casing and sing it out in our sadly magnumized culture.

    Nazi Germany had a special law wherein murders using rounds of greater diameter than 11 mm were to be investigated by a special unit of the GeStaPo, as being a particularly heinous weapon. that unit was equipped with .44 Special revolvers.
