    One good blow to the head with a club/bat/bar could knock someone out cold. It wouldn't be an unreasonable reaction to draw a weapon.

    I would draw and give one verbal warning. If its dark, I can't see what he is holding. All I know is that he is disgruntled for some reason and charging at me with a long object that could very well be a rifle or shotgun...Even if it was a bat it could still be deadly. If he didn't immediately stop after my verbal warning and seeing a gun pointed at him (Anyone with any sort of brains would turn around and run at this point), I would open fire.

    Death or permanent brain damage.
    A single blow delivered to the skull depending on how well it connects and the degree of force behind the delivery is potentially a killing blow.

    The deputy did the right thing, had the child not been there he would have had more options. Sad the kid had to see that, but with an abusive drunk for a father he is probably better off.

    Tough situation, but the right call on the deputy's part.

    You can be sure if someone is running at you swearing and carrying a big stick over their head they are not with Welcome Wagon.

    Draw while screaming for the individual to stop. Noncompliance will result in a penalty.

    Namely, gunfire.

    Hmmm,I wonder what the BG expected...a handshake or a pat on the back..
    Good to see that the Deputy and child was not hurt,the boy can put that in his "things not to do file"...

    Sounds like a good shoot. Now as to the question of what would I do? Well if he was reasonably close (the ole 21' rule) I would ventilate him. If he was farther away, I would try and withdraw - if I cant and he closes, ventilate. A 2' long, 1/2" thick hardwood club can do alot of damage....he IS a threat

    Oh, come on, people. You're supposed to have 911 on speed dial and know the evil bad man will stop and run away.

    Normally I'd try to run, but I doubt I could with a kid on the scene. I'd stand my ground and draw, yell at him to stop, and if he doesn't, woe is he.

    Sometimes folks make bad choices, the dad did that here, . . . I don't see any real alternative for the deputy.

    Two shots, . . . COM, . . . call the coroner and the Sgt, . . . end of story.

    May God bless,

    I think the appropriate order for calls would be call for medical help, call the sergeant, call your Rep, then call the Coroner. The dead body isn't going anywhere there are several people that could be called before the coroner.

    The BG had a bad day. Legit shooting. No problem here.
    Imagine that you're an enemy soldier and you are surrounded by U.S. Army paratroopers on one side and American marines on the other side... Talk about a hopeless situation... That has got to be legal grounds for suicide!
