I've defended LE in more than one thread about controversial incidents; but, this has tunnel vision written all over it. It really looks like they either panicked or were too eager to bring down the guy who had gunned down fellow officers.
I have no idea how I would react to a situation where someone was actively hunting me down, I can imagine the stress of something like that would make me a little fast on the trigger, but I do know where I'd end up if it was a bad shoot.
