Many State Statutes Are Vague About Using Deadly Force

Most state statutes are very vaguely worded when it comes to outlining when an officer can or can’t use deadly force. Many statutes say that if officers “reasonably believe” it is necessary for them to use deadly force, they have the right to do so. Others state that an officer has the right to use deadly force in order to make an arrest or if the suspect “attempted to commit a felony.” Such wording will pretty much protect almost any officer if his or her use of excessive force is brought into question.
