What about a crossbow? What about a throwing axe? I think there are some shades of gray involved.
I do think a careful and objective review of the situation by a fully informed
is needed. I also think this kind of situation would be easier to "judge" if the officers were all equipped with gun cameras similar to the units available on tazers or with some other means of documenting the situation for review. I have read about some departments considering "lapel cams" to augment their "dash cams".
