Guys in wheelchairs can develop enormous arm strength (if this wasn't an electric), being in a wheelchair would protect most of his back/side from a tazer, the officer that shot was not the officer being threatened. He saw his partner being threatened and a person can be fatally stabbed with a pen as well as a knife/icepick.

If the man in the wheelchair was in enough of a position that the officer felt threatened, then the he was also in enough of a position to be easily shot with a taser.

But LEO does it and it must have been justified because after all, guys in wheelchairs can develop enormous arm strength.

It would be unjustified due to all the civilians training, OH wait Scratch that LEOs are the ones with all the training.

And to prevent jumping to conclusions because of a news article, this one is closed to prevent further degradation of the subject.
