    Justified or not, what is your opinion.
    He was throwing rocks at cars, some have said this was suicide by cop. Others say the police murdered him.
    If Deputy Andrew Hall is found guilty could get 20 years
    I have heard if someone is within 20 feet holding a knife of someone with a gun, they are close enough to kill the gun holder.

    Justified. IMHO when someone pulls a weapon on an officer it is always justifiable to shoot. I wish the officer had utilized a non-leathal method first, but the man threatening the officer with a knife gave the decision of how the officer responds to the officer.

    The need for use of deadly force in some situations seems obvious, and this one appears to be one of those situations.

    That was grievous to watch. In so many ways. I wonder who even gives a crap.
