HEY, rubber bullets aren’t made out of rubber.
they are metal bullets coated with a thin layer of rubber. the cops obviously know this. they aren’t non lethal. they are not meant for close range.
they were invented as a way to break up riots by firing the bullet at the ground with the intent to bounce into people’s legs without much injury and are expected to produce contusions, abrasions, and hematomas in those cases but they can kill.
police that are shooting them point blank at people's heads are shooting to kill.

Sometimes the day does start with good news
The Inkscape team kindly agreed to answer a bunch of my questions that you probably also want to know answers to: if the team still markets it as an SVG editor (yes and no), what their outlook for the development of the SVG specification is (seems cautious), whether they have plans for GUI work and future use of GPU (they do), whether they still plan paid development (undecided), and more.
