You could say the same of the UK then too. Or do you refuse to acknowledge all the time I've shown instances of UK police shooting people. Infact they weren`t even armed like... Mark Duggan or Charles de Menezes Shall I keep going?

@ AJ: Congratulations on 9,500 comments! You put me to shame.
I just read one story that clearly stated the man exited the house holding a handgun and didn't drop it when police told him to. In that kind of a standoff situation, that`s essentially suicidal and it lends a lot of credence to the "suicide by cop" theory.
On the other paw: Couldn`t they have given the guy maybe four or five seconds to comply before releasing a hail of gunfire? They seemed to resort to deadly force awfully fast.
And whatever happened to beanbag rounds? A beanbag round to this guy`s stomach or chest would`ve knocked him flat--maybe even knocked him unconscious--and probably would`ve allowed officers to rush him.
