So I can repel his force/threat coming at me with "draw down" non-lethal force so long as I initially just draw down. If he keeps coming after I draw down, I can reasonably articulate perp's legal deliberate indifference. He did not care I had gun....he just kept coming (very dangerous). Does FL allow this?
Sec. 9.04. THREATS AS JUSTIFIABLE FORCE. The threat of force is justified when the use of force is justified by this chapter. For purposes of this section, a threat to cause death or serious bodily injury by the production of a weapon or otherwise, as long as the actor's purpose is limited to creating an apprehension that he will use deadly force if necessary, does not constitute the use of deadly force.
