Excessive Force

LAS VEGAS — A federal court in Nevada ruled that a police officer’s use of deadly force against a suicidal man was “objectively unreasonable.” The officer shot the man in the back without issuing any warning. At the time the man was shot he had had no weapon, had not committed any serious crime and had not threatened anyone with the gun that he had dropped when another officer asked him to do so.
