So what you are saying is that a doctor that "kills" someone on the operating table because of malpractice should get the death penalty?
And are you also saying that a priest/preacher/teacher that rapes a child during the course of his/her professional duty should get the death penalty?
After all, cops are not the only that begin their day as a professional and end their day as a professional.
Also the "justified use of force" would mean the officer did NOT kill nor hurt another person. It would mean that the officer acted for society as a professional whom has a set obligation.
