Is it your assessment that 12 police officers are incapable of

gaining control of one unarmed person without the use of deadly force? You may want to review policies for use of deadly force before concluding that posts contrary to yours are embarrassing. I know Mike Herring and these issues very well. From the City of Richmond Police Departmenrt general order on use of force:

B. Parameters for the Use of Deadly Force: [CALEA 1.3.2]
1. Deadly force may only be used to:
a) Protect the officer or others from what is reasonably believed by the
officer to be an imminent threat of death or serious physical injury;
b) Prevent the escape of a fleeing subject when the officer has probable
cause to believe the subject has committed a felony involving the
infliction or threatened infliction of serious physical injury or death;
Escape of the subject would pose an imminent danger of death or serious
physical injury to the officer or to another person.

There is a whole force continuum thing whereby the officer must, if circumstances permit progress through various levels before resorting to deadly force in rare instances. I'm not sure what video you are referring to, but I think it is at least worth asking questions about the imminent threat posed by the naked guy (or the 60 year old woman in her own home) to the officers and/or others.
