Can individuals use deadly force if they "believe the suspect might do serious physical injury or kill an officer or another person?
Many states have the stand your ground law which should suffice. For cops, apparently only in Indiana as far as I can tell although there was just another case recently where the cop was shot by someone who thought there was a home invasion going on. As far as I'm concerned every no-knock door smashing cop invasion should be considered a home invasion.
