Apparently its not a fallacy; some kid was killed this 000
in LA.  Skulls are weaker than the sectional density of
jacketed lead x terminal velocity, apparently.  They 
apparently will puncture auto sheetmetal.  Fun surprise in
the morning after.  Mother found kid in pool of blood.

Too little time-exposure to evolve thicker skulls.  Put
it on the fixes for H sap v 2.0

Maybe LAPD should distribute free wax-blanks in a variety of
calibers in the appropriate sections of towns.
