My opinion is that the "threat eliminated" argument was created by defense lawyers to defend police in these shooting incidents?
The argument was derived from the laws on the subject, which provide that you may use the necessary force to deal with the threat. If the aggressor dies as a result, you have an affirmative defense against a charge of homicide.
