I'm not saying Scott should necessarily hand her over to Steve gift wrapped with a bow, but there is some middle ground between that and flat out shooting at Steve that could have been attempted first.
Again, violence shouldn't have been a last resort, not plan A. You can always fall back on that if other options fail. But the minute you decide to turn it into a fight other options basically get wiped off the table.
Had Scott simply removed Hope, Utopia might not have falled. If Hope had left, Steve might not have bothered invading at all and Utopia might still be standing.
You want things simple, let's make it simple. Scott started a fight then ran, abandoning Utopia and even some of it's students.
The fact that people are trying to use this logic as a defense for Scotts actions when it frankly led to that very result is something I find strange.
Is there any way Scott could have removed Hope without fighting? I dont see how. Cap had Strange waiting to stop them from teleporting out. Even if he wanted to run they would have to fight to either buy time or just fight to make a run for it. Cap wasn't just going to let them leave with her.

You gonna get us out of here. With that tight-ass Wolverine outfit on. Now, let's make it happen, asshole
YOST: Okay, it's not Jean Grey. Nobody likes her
Again, if you look at the score card all they really did was lose Hope AND the whole island. So how is that better? I keep going back to that question, because ultimately the end result more than anything else tells the tale here.
