@PSCYSM and @DAVE :
Gas has been attempted before in the Moscow theater hostage crisis (2002). It killed 130~ hostages.
Hmm, perhaps that's why it is only the domain of movies nowadays... :(

It reminds me of something that's been going on here in the UK near where I live.

This guy has a charge list as long as my... umm, something that's long. It's easy in hindsight obviously, but with this much "noise" around him I'd say it's definitely a breakdown in intelligence.

BTW: Sucks about sleeping gas being a Hollywood thing.
Some food for thought.
