Surely each of those prior cases stand on their own merits and each new case should be judged on the evidence available?

In this case the evidence does not support the reasonable perception of a deadly threat.

The **** of a police officer turned up intending to shoot Shaver; he informed him of his intention to do so, made him contort himself to make it inevitable that he would make some sort of mistake due to intoxication, humiliated him and then summarily executed him, making good on the prediction he had etched on his personal fire arm.

Legal precedence, my arse.
