Not disagreeing with you at all,

and if he had the balls to enter a private residence uninvited.....

One of the reasons half my earnings go to the gov'ment in one form or another, is so these police have all those nifty non-lethal toys like; shotguns with rubber slugs, tazers and the like. Two cops, designate one as the 'shooter', and arm the other one with a tazer or whatever. Deploy the non-lethal method until the 'perp' comes within knifing range. If the non-lethal method fails, then you can pump him full of lead.
