The last word on Ramos and Compean

As far as I understand it, if the TOTALITY of circumstances (see post above) implies mortal danger to the officer the officer is allowed to use deadly force. That's it. Oscar,
Whatever else they reported or did not report -- if you believe they were in mortal danger that is all there should be to it, as far as I understand.

The prosecutor mistakenly understood the the don't shoot when back is turned as a one size fits all rule -- in most cases it is a good one.
