I don’t think we have a clear view of everything the fleeing suspect was doing, so we don’t really know if he was pointing his gun at someone or not. I suppose the Police could come back and charge someone, but so far they seem to feel it was justified.
I know there have been a few high profile shootings in that general community over the last few months and the Police have been under a lot of pressure to crack down. I wonder if that might influence their decision not to charge the victim.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
