Putting the pin back in

A Minneapolis Star-Tribune article about the pros and cons of flash-bang grenades used by law enforcement officers in the U.S. quoted Donald E. Wilkes Jr., a professor in the School of Law, who has studied the issue.

“It’s nonlethal only in the sense that it’s not intended to inflict death,” Wilkes said. “Police. . . using bombs as a search and seizure technique is completely inappropriate.”
