Police are frequently forced to make the same tough choice. In March, a Melbourne police officer told an inquest he thought he was going to be beheaded by a radicalised teenager before a colleague shot the knife-wielding 18-year-old.
The federal officer, known only as Officer B, has told an inquest into the 2014 death of Numan Haider that his fellow policeman saved his life when he fired.
“If (Officer A) had not fired the shot I am sure that Haider would have cut my throat and cut my head off,” Officer B said in his statement to the inquest on Thursday.
Both officers said they had no doubt Haider’s intention was to kill as he lunged at them with a knife outside the Endeavour Hills Police Station on September 23, 2014.
