I remember a few years back in california there was a white bronco that wouldn't stop for the police, it was driven by a murder suspect and known drug user at the same high speeds of 30-35mph. He was armed and considered dangerous(4000 lb SUV). I wonder why the police didn't line up and take him out with a few hundred rounds? Would have seemed justifyed under the conditions, not much different from what happened here.
I like your point and, fair comparison...
