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? http://abcnews.go.com/US/nypd-synagogue-shooting-justified-commissioner/story?id=27466488 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.
