** They're coming down from a massive power and adrenaline rush, as I imagine most people who're probably juiced up on all kinds of things and have just committed a massive violent felony by firing mini-guns into the walls of an apartment block and almost certainly killed a whole bunch of people would be likely to experience.

*** Except Dredd's gun was still set to "Stun" from taking down the two juveniles, so by rights he should've just shot ''both'' of them and then revived Anderson.
