Deadly force should only be used if one's life or the life of another is in immediate danger. Additionally, if you have less restrictive means to subdue the perpetrator, you should use them. The folks on Team Flash had less restrictive means to subdue DeVoe, which they attempted to deploy, but Ralph didn't activate the cuffs. Team Flash isn't judge, jury, and executioner. They don't have the right to just kill people and I'm kind of glad that Barry has decided that his powers don't give him the authority over life and death. It's also why the pipeline prison wasn't well received by fans and why the show has taken efforts to rectify that by creating metahuman detention wings in the prison. It's why dictators and warlords go on trial at the Hague. It's actually the more sophisticated viewpoint. Unfortunately, the show isn't smart enough to have Barry connecting the not killing rule to his and his father's experiences with the justice system. Except DeVoe is not some human warlord who can be captured or imprisoned, and every pointless failed attempt to do so just results in more innocent people dying. Given the scope of his powers, I think it's reasonable to approach the situation where every second he is alive places everyone on the planet in immediate danger. 12 Link to comment
