Hey, gotta stop the threat. Thats how cops are trained. It's on the douchebag who pulled out a deadly weapon.
Here's a scenario. Your ten feet away from someone, your armed with your gun in your holster, if that person attacks you with a knife can you pull your weapon in time to shoot him before you get stabbed?
9 shots in the side including a paused head shot, to a old duffer in a wheel chair with a pocket knife, equals murder/man-slaughter as even the shooter's superiors have established, as well as LE spokesmen elsewhere. Note that the weapons were already drawn and aimed, so your "scenario" means squat with regards to this case.
OC was the tactical tool to deploy, not 9 shots including a paused head shot.
