What was the outcome of the Tennessee v. Garner case?

Answer

Tennessee v. Garner was a case presented to the United States Supreme Court that aimed to determine whether or not a peace officer had the legal right to use lethal force against an escaping suspect if that suspect was likely to pose a significant threat to the public. It specifically focused on fleeing in a motor vehicle. The ruling was that it would be unlawful to allow suspect to drive recklessly as an incentive for police to break off the pursuit, should the court have ruled against the police force.
