Terminator 2: Judgment Day

The SWAT team breaks into Cyberdyne, and kills Miles Dyson. He then sets off the charges. T-800, Sarah and John escape by stealing a SWAT vehicle. The T-100 hijacks a police helicopter and chases them. They eventually fight in a steel mill. The T-1000 is frozen and the T-800 shoots him, causing him to shatter. He soon reforms and the group separates. The two Terminators fight. Then the T-1000 turns its attention to Sarah. It threatens her, but then the T-800 comes and saves her. The T-1000 sticks a pole through the T-800, making it shut down. T-1000 then impersonates Sarah to get to John. The real Sarah shoots it 5 times. The T-800 reboots and shoots the T-1000 with a small explosive launcher. The T-1000 explodes and falls into a pool of molten steel, where it melts. The original arm and chip are also destroyed in the pool. The T-800 destroys itself by lowering itself into the boiling liquid steel, despite John’s pleading not to. John and Sarah Connor survive and think about the fight to keep the future safe.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where the Terminator and the T-1000 are fighting in the corridors of The Galleria, the Terminator has fired multiple shots at the T-1000. When he gets up off the floor, the Terminator throws him into the left wall and the impact hole is already visible before he hits. (00:31:45)

Question: Why did the T-1000 kill the officer in the beginning and steal his clothes? Later we see the uniform heal so we know he can create clothing.

Answer: He didn't steal his clothes, but copied them. He can only copy things that he physically touches. He had to touch the cop to take on his look. Also since the cop was a witness to this ruthless killing machine, it needed to kill him to protect itself from being discovered too soon. The Terminator is an infiltration unit on an assassination mission to kill John Connor. As advanced as it is, it needs as little attention drawn to it as possible. Having the entire police force chasing him down would not be ideal for his goal to get Connor and would inevitably slow him down and risk allowing Connor a better chance of escape. The T 1000 also is an emotionless machine programmed by other machines that are intent on killing off all humans in the future. It doesn't value human life, and if anything has been programmed to regard them as a pest to be dealt with. The cop was a means to an ends and an obstacle to take out. As well, the cop did also posses a weapon, and was the T-1000's quickest way to get his hands on a gun.

Answer: While the T-1000 did kill the officer at the beginning (which is pretty much standard behavior for Terminators), it didn't steal the officer's clothes. It merely sampled the officer's appearance as soon as it touched him. However, it did steal the officer's firearm, because the T-1000 could not mimic complex mechanical objects or weapons (it could only mimic stabbing and cutting weapons).
