In the middle of Joshua Bush's forehead, two inches above his eyes, lies the evidence that prosecutors say could send the teenager to prison for attempted murder: a 9 mm bullet, lodged just under the skin.

But Bush and his lawyer are fighting the removal, in a legal and medical oddity that raises questions about patient privacy and how far the government can go to solve crimes without running afoul of the constitutional protection against unreasonable searches and seizures.

What does this guy's head look like? 2 inches above my eyes my forehead is a think layer of skin over bone. There is no fatty tissue there for a bullet to burrow into.

I guess that'll teach Mr. Olive to use a 9mm. If he'd had a .45 it wouldn't be an issue.

When I read the Post title, I thought they were trying to remove it at the scene of the shooting. [dunce] I was thinking, I'd fight them too! Let the doctors do it!

Okay. Hijack over.
