looks like the government are seeing it as ... "mehh" .. "whatever"

whereas i see it as murder ... or at least within our definitions regarding both intent to kill and regulations on when it is permissible for police to shoot ( although for legal ( getout ) reasons they are likely framed as guidelines )
( ,,,,,,,, ....... A E I O U use em sparingly theres probably not enough )

i might live and eat in a sewer .. but hey look how many of these shiny things i have got

I'm always reluctant to judge in such cases -- since I wasn't there and all the info we have is second-hand.

The reality is that there will be occasions when someone represents such a significant threat to public safety that the only way to ensure the public's safety is maintained is to "take out" the threat -- preferably by non-fatal means but sometimes lethal-force may be the only option.

But let's face it... if you approach an armed police officer with a weapon in your hand then, regardless of what you do next, you are effectively signing your own death warrant. I'd call it (at the very least) a case of fatal stupidity.
