1. Not justified

 

A razor.... in his hand? No sudden movements, not like he was holding it to someones throat. Why kill him at that point? Other than "uhg, this is annoying, I should have been off 20 minutes ago. I want to see who won the football game last night. Fuck it, lets just shoot him and get it over with already. bang"

3. Wrong... the incentive would be to extend the confrontation. It's called, "overtime."

 

Now, maybe the 3 for 1 sale at Dunks was gonna be over in 10 minutes and the cop was afraid he was gonna miss it. That would be justifiable reason to shorten the confrontation.

2. Have they just given up on using the tasers?

The female cop was closer than the rifle cop, and she looks in no way threatened.

5. Apparently, a taser was used

And the taser and the gun were fired simultaneously. I bet they don't teach that in taser class.
