Imagine the next situation, I am talking with a friend about this article: Haiti: photojournalist shot in face as senator opens fire outside parliament ...:
Friend: Ehh, Did you read this one?
Me: Ahh yes, I read it this morning.
Me: I think his reaction was disproportionate, he could has handled the situation in a better way ...
too large or too small in comparison to something else, or not deserving its importance or influence
- There are a disproportionate number of girls in the class.
- The country's great influence in the world is disproportionate to its relatively small size.

I am using disproportionate to refer an action of him, I am not talking about: shapes, numbers (for example: ehh look that team is disproportionate, it has the double of players than the others), ...
So, as I asked: Is "disproportionate" word correct in this context?
