As the video so clearly shows, this policeman had genuine reason to fear for his own safety when he was isolated from his fellow officers and threatened by a woman carrying a carton of orange juice as a weapon:
"Not one photograph or piece of footage comes close to reflecting the fear as I turned around to see this crowd and its proximity, both to myself and my officers," he told the court. "At the time I thought, this is it. She is deliberately coming from a blind spot. The reason she is coming from a blind spot is to hide her intention so she can approach and attack her target – me."
