6. You are asserting that Dorner was burned alive?

 

I missed that in the flood of news thus far.

Where can I find further information on that fact?

I'm stating relevant 4th Amendment law on point. I do not have all of the facts which you seem to have.

Let's break it down for you:

IF

(a) the suspect threatens the officer with a weapon

OR

(b) there is probable cause to believe that he has committed a crime involving the infliction or threatened infliction of serious physical harm,

THEN

deadly force may be used if necessary to prevent escape,

AND IF

where feasible, some warning has been given.

Would you like that coded in the programming language of your choice?
