I'm loathe to admit that any shooting is justified, but when you warn the guy to stop stabbing his victim and he ignores you, and the neighbors have already hit him on the head with a baseball bat to no avail, and then you shoot him, it sounds justified.
The only thing that makes me wonder about this story is the number of stab wounds. Is it even possible to stab someone that many times? How long would that take?
Other than that, I have to say, it sounds legit. Even the fact that Officer Joel Hansen fired once and when that didn't work fired again, in other words he didn't empty his gun on the guy, lends credibility to the claim that it was justified.
