The guy might well have had mental problems. But that doesn't make the threat to the officers any less or any less real or immediate.

The attacker had set the terms of the engagement. If someone is wielding a lethal weapon and putting an innocent, whether a police officer or a private citizen, in jeopardy of imminent death or grave bodily injury, lethal force is justified in self defense.
