New York City was set in a panic earlier this month when a man opened fire and released smoke canisters on a Brooklyn subway train, shooting 10 people and leaving dozens injured. After more than a day of searching for the man responsible, police arrested 62-year-old Frank James for the attack. The shooting and its aftermath have renewed debates over police funding and the most effective ways to prevent or respond to crime, with differing opinions on how to interpret the police response to the subway attack.
