Settle down everybody. Here are the details. A 50-year-old man identified as Calvin Peters barged into a Brooklyn synagogue at 1:40 am saying he wanted to kill a Jew. He stabbed a rabbinical student in the head with a knife, threatening others, then held off cops who repeatedly told him to drop the knife. Finally, they shot him dead.
The Daily Beast has a more complete video of the incident. Viewer warning: Graphic language.
As you can see from the video the suspect is obscured from view when the shots were fired.
So I suppose Al Sharpton will be Johnny-on-the-spot questioning the rationale for this shooting. Eric Holder's boys at the Justice Department will descend on NYPD looking for a chance to indict the officer perhaps for using the f-bomb repeatedly. The talking heads at MSNBC will be asking why some non-lethal form of force could not have been used. Will there be marches?
Or how about this novel idea? How about calling the stabbing of the rabbinical student a hate crime?
