Why did no one protest the violation of this man's due process rights?

The consensus on DU is that this kind of conduct by police is vigilantism, murder, and a lynching.

A man with a history of theft and weapons convictions gunned down two police officers investigating possible drug activity in a Kansas grocery parking lot, and was later killed after an armed standoff, authorities said Monday.

...



Authorities, based on a tip, found Tiscareno holed up early Monday at a house about a mile away. When negotiations broke down, Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents fired tear gas inside. Tiscareno then emerged from the home with a gun and officers opened fire, according to the Shawnee County sheriff's office, which is leading the investigation.


Not a single post at DU decried this abuse of police authority. Despite this being the exact same fact pattern as another case causing great outrage.

The only difference being that (a) one house caught fire, the other didn't; and (2) one suspect left the building and was shot on sight by the police, whereas the other committed suicide.

Please go ahead and tell me that the politics of the suspect plays no role in how people judge the fairness of how he is treated.

3. Not explicitly, but they objected to the use of force by police in a situation

where lethal force was clearly legal and constitutional.
