How the Jews do

My friend MR had told me about a shooting that happened at a Florida synagogue during Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) so when I saw this headline today it caught my attention: Confrontation at synagogue turns ugly. Have the Jews suddenly become gangsta? Am I going to have to start carrying a glock to Purim services?

Police had to separate several hundred members of the factions inside and outside the synagogue at 152 Rodney St.

Oooh sounds exciting. But then, not so much:

Although no one was arrested, one person was treated at Long Island University Hospital for a slap to the face, said police. They added that seven security people aligned with a faction from the upstate community of Kiryas Joel were issued summonses for not having watchmen's licenses.

Yeah, that sounds about right.

Treated at the hospital for a slap in the face?? We're getting awfully soft, people.
