If my son's Kenpo sensei (well, one of them) who is a 100lb 16-year-old girl, about 5'3" tall, but is an expert in Kenpo, Jeet Kune Do, a level 4 in Krav Maga, and proficient in combative jiujitsut were the one in this video, something tells me you'd still be only focused on her sex, age and size. Your argument, while relevant at times, is irrelevant here, and I'm done discussing irrelevant things.
but the fact still remains that, after a felonious assault on the officer, she ran at him in a threatening manner.

I am curious, what was the felonious assault?
Second Degree Assault
5."Knowingly" apply "physical, violent force" to a police officer, firefighter, prison guard, or a judge while they are in the performance of their duties.
Do you not agree that if this had occurred in the UK that the girl would still be alive. This is not because the UK police have no access to firearms but because they are prepared to put themselves on the line.
I am no armchair quarterback, I don't care about any of that stuff. I don't like anything about that cop or how that whole scene played out, aggression is the first port of call.
There's zero point in debating something with somebody who has half the story and fills in the rest with their own ideas.

I hope that every person the cops come in contact with they treat it like it is someone "expert in Kenpo, Jeet Kune Do, a level 4 in Krav Maga, and proficient in combative jiujitsut" and of course they will feel threaten...We all know the ending of that...
Sure, this could have ended another way, but for a self-professed "no armchair quarterback," you sure are throwing some hail marys. Speculating on the what-might-have-beens is exactly what an armchair quarterback does--you look at the situation after the fact and then claim you know best. I agree with your idealistic point of view, but it's not always reality.
