Reason:

CON proves that in the case of unarmed people, lethal force is not to be used. However, PRO's point that in some situations lethal force is necessary also stands. PRO's argument for a riot is futile, as non-lethal ways of using force can still be implemented. However, the resolution doesn't state "lethal force against riots", but "lethal force". Thus, in some situations, lethal force might be needed. However, PRO did not mention any situation other than a riot, so the argument point to CON.

Sources point to PRO, because his sources directly negated the "peacefully protest" argument from CON, by showing the direct damage.
