    Speak Up! - View Question #20897


    printer friendly version

    Question: My mom says that If I am outside and I am seen by a cop holding a pellet gun that he has the right to shoot me. I argue that he cannot shoot me unless I shoot him. Who is right? I mean im not gonna go carrying in plain sight down the street.

    Answer: According to ARS 13-410(c), an officer has the right to use deadly force if he/she  believes a "person is likely to endanger human life or inflict serious bodily injury to another unless apprehended without delay."  If you are walking around holding any type of weapon and an officer believes that you will use it to seriously hurt another person immediately, then he/she has a right to use deadly force.

    If you are flashing the pellet gun in an immoral way or giving the impression that you intend to use it as a weapon the cops does have th right to take action. however they should make sure of the offense before confronting you in a dangerous manner.

    If the cop feels that you are endangering him or anyone else, then he is given that right. If he shoots you for that reason it is clear cut self-defense and is not against the law.

    It really depends. He does have the right to if the cop feels he or someone else is in danger. In that case, if he shoots you, it's clear-cut self-defense
