But consider this ...
They have a certified off his rocker type still tossing objects (knife? rocks and etc.) at police.

This after being ZAPPED a few times, Maced and Bean Bagged over a 20+ min attempt to de-escalate and arrest. Then the Taser aiming and pointing forced a Protect measure.

Could have it been handled better?
Yes I think it could have been handled better in a number of ways. A Tranquilizer dart, butterfly net, fire hose and etc...

But Police don't have those items and they use what the Politicians deemed they be allowed to use.

BTW: The media's shot fired count may also include the numerous Bean-Bags and Taser discharges. But that fact is conflicting depending on the which Media is being used as a source.

#2 But Police don't have those items

They did have the body mass of 4 armored cops, upwards of 1000 lbs.

#3 Nobody likes melee range. I suppose the easiest would be a sort of modern Retiarius system, though with a grapple instead of a trident. Just kind of let him wear himself out, but I supposed the optics would be triggering, even though everyone goes home alive and well.
