After all the deadly shootings and strong dispute that our police officers have given our civilians. You, ask yourself? When can Police officers use Deadly Force?

According to the U.S. Supreme, Court has ruled that the Fourth Amendment prohibits the use of deadly force to effect an arrest or believes that the suspect committed or attempted to commit crimes involving the infliction or threatened.

Example: In a Traffic stop, If an officer sees you reach for something suspicious, he can make an inference that you have a weapon and also fire his firearm if he sees the suspects firearm weapon being reached.

Put yourself in a Officers Shoe, If your life is put at risk on a daily basis what would you do?
