NSFW: Fatal Use of Force | Was it justified?

In an atmosphere of shouting and little stand-off, three Brazilian Police Officers detain an individual.  During their work, a man with a button up shirt routinely presses his way into the affairs of the officers.  One officer draws his gun as he is reading the language of this man as an overt attempt to get the man to back off.  Suddenly the man reaches for the canister of mace on the cops belt and sprays it.  The cop, with almost zero hesitation shoots the man point-blank range.  The man runs off only to fall a couple steps down the street where he dies.

I don’t blame these cops for using fatal force.  If they had been maced, they all could have been incapacitated and their weapons would have been useless and most likely stolen from them.  I am glad I am not a cop in Brazil.
