Underwear As Armor E-mail

It turns out that the most effective way to use a bra as body armor are to either stuff it with cash or wear the ones with the wires in them. According to the Associated Press, the metal underwire in a Detroit woman's bra is being credited with deflecting a bullet fired at her during a break-in at a nearby neighbor's home.

Detroit police Officer Leon Rahmaan says the 57-year-old woman apparently looked out her window Tuesday when shots rang out. Officer Rahmaan said that the slug smashed through her window pane before hitting the bra's underwire.
The round did not penetrate her skin.


Police say she may have gone to the window after a burglar alarm at the house next door went off. Three suspects, all male, drove away after the shooting.
