Actually, dead people often tell their side of the story -- in the form of physical evidence, body position, autopsy findings, etc. And sometimes there are witnesses one might not immediately be aware of.
In any event, suggesting that it might be okay to unlawfully use lethal force as long as you can get away with it is not appropriate on this forum.
