    What Would Dirty Harry Do?

      Reality needs to catch up with make-believe TV cops.

    None are so hopelessly enslaved, as those who falsely believe they are free. The truth has been kept from the depth of their minds by masters who rule them with lies. -Johann von Goethe

      Dirty Harry tended to bend but not break the rules for shooting suspects (unless the scriptwriters could come up with a particularly clever line, e.g. "feeling lucky, punk.").  (And neither Clint Eastwood nor the movie's makers ever pretended that Dirty Harry was an unvarnished good guy -- Dirty Harry is very much an anti-hero 60s movie, more Man With No Name than John Wayne In A White Hat.)

      And he never denied any of his antics.  I'm sure the PBA hated his guts.
