Graham v. Connor

Justifying the Use of Deadly Force Is a No-Brainer for the Police

Given the objective reasonableness standard (Graham v. Connor) a police officer can justify the use of deadly force in almost any situation. “Truth” is the essential element in police accountability and police officers know that the concept of “truth” is legally NOT morally defined, and based solely on their perception of the events through the eyes of another police officer NOT through the eyes of a citizen.
