The officer might be able to justify the shooting time will tell. In my opinion at that stage the shooting wasn't justified. The police could of backed of out of reach reach of the weapon he was carrying a taser could of being tried again. Lethal force should always be a last option.
One thing i do know if that happened here the american politicians would be the first to be protesting to the British government about the wrongful shooting. Next would be amnesty international. Double standards i think.
For those that are saying that the shooting was justifiable the guy could have had mental problems, if it was their son or brother would they have the same opinion.
Dose anyone disagree that lethal force should be a last resort. And do they think it was the last resort in this shooting.
