” I felt my life was threatened.”
I’m fine with this, but only if EVERYONE can use this line while carrying a gun. Crime would very, very quickly drop to almost nothing.
I’m not fine with police doing this when they’re trained in nonlethal means of subduing individuals who are acting in a strange or threatening manner. There are any number of reasons why a decent, law-abiding person could become disoriented and/or aggressive, from a bad reaction to prescribed medication to mental illness to a brain tumor. Such individuals should not be shot to death, particularly when not in possession of a weapon of ant kind. Trigger happy paranoids should not be in law enforcement.
I look back upon all the uproar over Rodney King and other highly publicized police beatings in amazement. Now, they’d all just be shot to death. Officer felt his life was in danger.

Crime would drop, so would everything else.
