A skillful jury selection, combined with a talented defense attorney, and the right social climate can work wonders. Of course, if I was facing criminal charges after engaging in dumb fire arms usage, I would want that exact same attorney.
Or maybe Peltier is a punk who ran an extortion / robbery crew (thinly disguised as a leftist political movement) on an Indian resevation, who then murdered two FBI agents who had chased his friend driving a stolen car into the encampement .http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonard_Peltier
My point is that giving socio economic group 'A' very broad benefits regarding justified force and not giving it to socio econiomic group 'B' is a receipe for alot more trouble. As a side note, I favor the "punk" explanation for Peltier.

Criminals just cant get a fair shake in todays bad world.
Tell you what, how about we disband all of it and you provide your own security 24/7/365. Start carrying a gun, turn your home into a fortress, train all your family to shoot to kill at the drop of a hat.
- All cops and proscutors are good guys theory and
- criminals are victims of society theory.
This allows me to have no trouble voting to indict Officer Wilson of Fergurson fame for involuntary manslaughter while not shedding any tears for Michael Brown (budding thug who had he not been unalwfully killed by Officer Wilson, had a decent chance of getting killed sooner or later by somebody who looked, acted and thought just like... Michael Brown)
Chances are this cop was just over zealous. Being that the suspects fled and basically tried to the kill the cops, lol at a 5 ton vehicle not being a weapon (aka making someone unarmed), I don't have much pity here. The community was protected. That's all that matters to me.
