Go over to Mimesis Law, the Fault Lines section, and read the above entitled post by Cristian Farias regarding whether the shooting of the escaped cop killer David Sweat was justified. Mr. Farias makes a convincing argument that the shooting was not justified. I confess, I, too, wondered whether the shooting was justified. While I am agnostic at this point, Mr. Farias’ post is well-reasoned.
Read the post by Mr. Farias, please. Then tell me what you think.
