    I do not mean to be contradictory just for the purpose of being factious, but that excuse would never work for non-LEO shootings.

    Apparently a bullet was the first warning he had that the police had arrived.

    Welcome to America! Where the cops can do things we can't do because they have a shiny badge, a costume, and this BS idea called authority and immunity.

    Took me a minute to realize what your point was (and I agree), but I would much rather "not get shot" or at least minimize the chances of a mistake.

    Well, they did something.


    [/sarcasm]

    The first thing I'm looking for is the agency's published use of force policies.

    there are situations where this would create unnecessary risk to yourself. for instance, when you've shot the BG, but he's still alive, so there's a continued need to keep him covered.

    the root problem here is that people are forced to call police in these situations. absent that requirement, there is no problem.
