Shoot or not to Shoot?

Police Officers have guns. They need to protect themselves.

But does that mean it's justified to shoot and kill someone with a bat?

Right or wrong??

He could've just shot the kid's arm or leg. The kid would be in pain and drop the bat. Kill him? Was it really necessary??
I'm not sure that officer was really doing the smart thing. Defend yourself, yes. Kill your opponent...? I'm not convinced.

What do YOU think?

I believe the officer was justified in what he did. If someone is trying to kill you, no matter the apparatus, I feel you have a distinct right to protect yourself no matter what it takes.
