An amazing article about what’s fair when shooting and wounding thousands of unarmed persons and getting away with it yet not supplying definitive answers because that information will not ever be revealed. WTF (ODT)

The use of sniper rifles against closer targets increases accuracy and decreases the chances of wounding an unintended target, but it also leads to far more severe wounds due to the greater speed and force of the bullet. It therefore appears that the IDF’s use of sniper rifles during the Great Return March protests, along with bullets intended to be even more deadly and at a range shorter than the munitions are intended, which led to the large number of severe wounds among Palestinian demonstrators.
