We're always told that the taser is an alternative to deadly force: There was nothing in this even that warranted the use of firearms, so clearly it's not considered an alternative to deadly force by the police officers carrying it.
To Parish's "not to cooperate with law enforcement." comment, it sure seems to me that someone kicking down my door without a warrant or probable cause is not involved in law enforcement. Unless there were some amazing mitigating circumstances, I hope the officer who came through that door is charged with a felony that adequately captures violently breaking into an occupied home with the intent of harming the inhabitants.
