I figure it's deadly force being used to halt the actions of a man not acting rational. He stole a rifle and ammo. He's walking down a street and is either suicidal and/or homicidal and pointing the rifle up under his chin. This could be a ploy to keep the officers at bay until he can kill someone. Rifles, my friends, are a nasty weapon. Officer Rapiejko should be given a special commendation for his: Thinking fast, Making the proper determination regarding how to handle the situation and For saving the mans life. That's right, if this saga would have been allowed to play out, the officers could have gotten in a shoot out. An officer could have been killed. Perhaps the man would have shot himself.
I concur with the last point regarding how the police have an ability to be none responsive with the public.
The man who got ran over is in the soup by-the-way. His attorney doesn't understand how the cops saved her clients' life. I mean . . . Here is living proof that attorneys don't know everything and in some cases, they don't know squat. Oh come now, Cohen-Metzer, are you really this naive or just pretending so as to get your hands on some cash?
