a) Cops (and everyone else legally carrying a weapon) is taught to "shoot to neutralize the threat". As stated earlier, shooting in the leg, shoulder, hand, etc... is Hollywood nonsense.

b) An unstable individual brandishing a weapon is a threat to those around them, as well as themselves. If you're threatening to use a weapon on yourself, it has to be assumed that you'd have no compunction using it on someone else first. The threat has to be neutralized.
