I've actually written about the growing militarization of our law enforcement here:

...& have openly called upon my own police department to explain some of their positions.

I don't pretend to know the facts of the case but considering how much the Albany PD's own positions changed during their own Occupy eviction enforcement, I wouldn't be so quick to side w/ them. It'd also behoove them to define how they themselves "deadly force" as well as how they define "imminient danger."

Point being just because a person has a deadly weapon (like a knife or firearm), doesn't grant them the automatic right to apply that "deadly force." Or at least that was my own pre-9/11, peacetime Marine training dictated.
