Issue: (1) Whether, when an officer precipitates a violent confrontation ending in his use of force, his own conduct making that force necessary should be considered among the totality of circumstances determining whether the force was constitutionally excessive; and (2) whether an individual’s obvious mental illness reduces the government’s justification for using force against him during an encounter with police.
