Please respond to the following in a substantive post: 

  • Consider this scenario: You are a police officer. You stop a vehicle, and the subject immediately jumps out with his right hand hidden behind his back. He begins to run toward your patrol vehicle.
    • Would you or wouldn't you pull your weapon? Why or why not?
  • Consider the continuation of this scenario: You command the subject to stop. The subject continues to advance quickly on you. 
    • Would you or wouldn't you shoot the subject, not knowing for sure whether he has a firearm hidden behind his back? Why or why not?
