NSW police kill woman with ‘bean bag bullet’

Beanbag cartridges, known by the trade name Super-Sock, are sold as pouches of material filled with lead shot that can be fired precisely to “temporarily incapacitate violent, non-compliant individuals” at ranges of up to to 22 meters.

Manufacturers warn: “Shots to the head, neck, chest, heart or spine can result in death or serious injury.”

Hudson said the Tactical Operations Group, the most elite and heavily armed police unit, deployed 182 times and used the beanbag rounds on 15 occasions without causing any deaths.

But the police have now stopped using the cartridges.

“I can advise that we have temporarily suspended use of this feature while a review is conducted,” Hudson said Tuesday.

“This suspension will remain in effect until we conduct a full capability review.”

Kach’s family said they only learned police had fired their weapons when they heard it on the radio.

Kach had livestreamed the incident online for hours, making reference to the sovereign citizen movement, pedophiles, treason, fraud, embezzlement, espionage and the Nuremberg Trials.

A statement from Kach’s family, the Herald has agreed not to be named due to her acute mental distress, described her as a “strong and independent woman” who had experienced psychological distress throughout her life and said the reports were published by NSW Police, neighbors and the media inaccurate and harmful.
