Use of deadly force by a law-enforcement officer during an arrest or detention. Eliminates the requirements that a law-enforcement officer shall not use deadly force against a person unless he has provided a warning to the subject of the deadly force that he will use deadly force, if feasible, and exhausted all other options or such options do not reasonably lend themselves to the circumstances. The bill shifts these requirements to the factors considered in determining whether a law-enforcement officer's use of deadly force was proper. Read the Bill »
