    The line about sufficient force, not to "match," but to overcome, is very significant.

    We don't want to encourage excessive force. There are certainly many instances where police action can be challenged, especially when they shoot a non-threatening dog, attack the wrong house, use improper techniques, etc.

    But at the same time, we don't want to create an environment where the cops (or any law-abiding citizen defending him/her-self) is legally required to engage in a "fair fight."

    Once evil threatens and the "good guy/gal" is in jeopardy of life and limb, whether its our military, our police, or the citizens, they should be allowed to win, to prevail, to be the one who goes home.
