When a suspect pulls something from his pocket
Only in shootouts
They should look at what they are, but if the cop says to put their hands behind their head, and they go into their pocket, it's self defense. Also, try not to kill the suspect, shoot them in the leg.
ya, because it isn't gonna be a banana
Non-lethal force if possible
All while using proper judgement of course... if they feel the object is life-threatening, then for sure, the cop has the right to defend himself.
The tazer has really become under used.
I completely agree with TheMarquis... Use the taser...
Cops should be able to protect themselves only if a gun is pulled out on them.
