    First, both security officers should be praised. They did what they were paid to do. (Protect the property.) Then when this dirtbag hit one of them with the vehicle..and didn’t STOP, lethal force is authorized. Why? 1.The officer has already been struck, (so a felony has been committed.) The other officer has know way of knowing the severity of that officer’s injuries. The perp isn’t stopping, so deadly use of force is legal in this case. (To stop a fleeing felon WITH undetermined bodily injury to another human being. (Officer or not-doesn’t make a difference in this case.) Well done! You did your job, without worrying about the consequences after the fact.
    Don’t know you, but you’ve earned MY respect. IF I knew you..I’d buy you a beer! (And some range time…got to improve that “sight alignment & trigger control” a bit.)
