    I think in this particular situation rubber bullets could have been uses to subdue the subject. Then again, maybe not. Wonder if suspect was Muslim? Why on earth would a Muslim want to hang around Jews?

    The police shooting of a stabbing suspect at the Brooklyn headquarters of an Orthodox Jewish sect early this morning "looks like it was justified," New York Police Commissioner William Bratton said.

    An officer with seven years on the force shot and killed Calvin Peters, 49, after police "gave verbal commands for the male to drop the knife," Bratton said.

    The incident happened about 1:45 a.m. inside the headquarters of Chabad-Lubavitch. Peters walked into the facility asking for a book, police said. He then stabbed a 22-year-old student from Israel in the side of the head with a nine-inch knife, they added.

    "Hang on, let me load my everyday magazine full of rubber bullets. No fair stabbing me to death if it doesn't take you down."

    Curious you didn't suggest he use a rubber knife.

    Never underestimate the danger of a knife.

    Did the guy deserve to get shot with real bullets? Yes.

    In all seriousness I think net guns are the way to go.

    Clearly the Cops were out of Line.
    They should have waited until they were STABBED before shooting that poor man.

    Where is Sharpton?
    Where is Jackson?

    Hopefully the Grand Jury Will finally get it right this time.


    BTW is this video from WorldStarHipHop?
    Holy Crao!
    that was bad.

    He already stabbed someone then was approaching cops with guns drawn and didn't stay "contained". Good enough for me.

    Just glad I'm not a cop having to deal with dangerous unpredictable situations where you are damned if you do and damned if you don't.

    This is BEYOND a justified shooting.

    Actually I think that first cop made a serious error of judgment when he holstered his gun while the guy was still standing and within reach of the knife.

    Boy, that Martin Scorsese is something else! Great camera work, but the end was unsatisfying.



    For reals- love the person recording mutter a "shoot" to the cop as he's circling him.

    Why couldnt the cop just cough out a Blow-Dart using tips dipped into a sleeping agent to subdue him ??? He was obviously just a racist who wanted to bag him a "blaek"

    If they wanted to be socially accurate, they'd wear shirts that said "My people are disproportionately responsible for the crime that occurs in America "
