What’s a reasonable officer?!?!
That is not an objective measurement lol..
As you mentioned they established that the aftermath could not be considered a factor..
So all the cop has to do is fabricate some situation where he can claim he felt threatened, and it is a blank check to kill anyone..
It is IMPOSSIBLE to prove either way if a person felt threatened.
I have zero problem with creating a lesser charge for officers who meant well , but screwed up..
Or maybe not even a charge, but decide that person doesn’t have the mental fortitude to be a cop.. legally..
But I can sure a dozen cases where unarmed people were killed from a distance and the cop was commended..
