    Justified. Something like that could really fuck someone up, and he went to swing it at a cop's head.

    Watched the video.. it looked like the guy was getting ready to swing at the officer who didnt seem to have his gun out. Then his partner lit him up.. if he hadn't that cop would have been hit with whatever that bar was.

    The only thing that cop might get fucked for is the second burst of 5 shots. It looks as if the suspect was on his way down to the ground when he started shooting again. I don't blame him for doing it, but I fear that this will somehow turn around and fuck him.

    Edit: What fucking shitty taser was that???

    Eh, completely justified. Granted it looks brutal, and maybe he went a tad overboard on the shots....but that was probably more a product of adrenaline than it was wanting to shoot the guy X times. He probably didn't even know how many shots he fired at first.

    Sadly, the yokels don't really understand that and think everything is like the movies.

    Robert Duncan O'Finioan could've disarmed and subdued that man in the blink of an eye and then twisted his crow bar into the shape of a butterfly like a balloon animal.

    Yep. Lethal weapon within it's effective range = you get shot.

    You'd be surprised how often this happens in self-defense shootings - officer involved or civilian. The adrenaline dump people often get in these situations really screws with your perceptions. 21 feet looks like 7. 2 seconds feels like 30. You swear you fired 2 shots, but your 13 round magazine is empty...

    Yup. Once someone is in a situation where they're forced to fire on someone you can't really expect them to reevaluate the decision mid-event. Training focuses on making the right initial decision to fire, and hitting the target after that decision has been made. Their mentality is stop the other person, or something really bad is going to happen.

    Best way to get out of paying your bill.. homicidal maniac came in with a 3 foot metal killing bar. Cops shot him.. couldn't go back in and pay my bill if I wanted to.

    Good riddance. This was clearly suicide by cop... what kind of asshole takes a swing with a battleaxe at a cop and doesn't think he's gonna get lit up?
