I don't mean by the title of this thread to be flippant or to suggest that the LEOs weren't justified in their action. It's too early to tell, although the cnn news reporting certainly suggests that this was a suicide by cop.

I found the most interesting piece of data was that 20 rounds were fired and the deceased was hit a mere eight times.

I wonder how many cops fired the rounds. I'm thinking it's not as much overkill as I've seen on tv. It may be righteous as long as the cops truly believed that the deceased was going to fire his hairbrush.

Really? This suggests otherwise:

It may be righteous as long as the cops truly believed that the deceased was going to fire his hairbrush.

Repeat after me: I will not bait.
