So the cop should let the strung-out adult charge them and attack? Sorry, officers are trained for these situations and once that gun is drawn, it's shoot to kill, not wound. Sounds like the officer gave the kid more chances than most would before shooting.

It's not about having an excuse. It is about doing what is necessary to stop the threat. You weren't there so you cannot say deadly force wasn't warranted. Him being unarmed is irrelevant if other factors deem it to be so.
