The facts presented by the prosecution also indicated that the two live rounds found in the firearm were not issued by the Force; hence the charge of illegal possession of ammunition was instituted.The Prosecution also contended that when the defendant discharged the live rounds, he had no plausible reason to do so. It was also brought to the attention of the court that the defendant damaged the bulletproof vest he was wearing. The vest was not damaged by the victim as he claimed.Representing the policeman was Attorney at law,Wholesale Hockey Jerseys 2018
