I don't think anyone contests that Thor has high durability.  The question mark has been in regards to bullets and blades.  Before the early '90s, Thor never appeared to be bulletproof.  Instead he chose to block them regardless of the circumstances and sometimes said they were a threat to him.

If Thor were always bulletproof, then he is responsible for a man's death-- an enemy, to be fair, but still not what one should expect from a hero-- and he's responsible for endangering innocent lives and injuring a police officer.  All because he didn't want to get some welts.

That just... eviscerates the character.  Better a Thor who can be injured or even potentially killed by bullets than one who'd heedlessly imperil lives to avoid a boo-boo.

Firstly, He is a Warrior God, He is responsible for a lot of deaths (intentional and otherwise). Secondly, a police officer knows the risks when he takes the oath (just like a soldier). In regard to the enemy factor, in the immoratl words of Will Smith in MIB I: Don't start none, There won't be none.
