    this is why it's worst idear for police in civilized country's to be armed with fire arms and they should have just specialised units like we have in the uk which are trained to use fire arms and for the US the only police branches such as the swat and anti terrorist branches

    You all are absolute morons. A man comes at you with a knife and what is the mentality of the European. 'We must do everything possible to ensure this man armed with a knife intending to kill/injure people is safe.' No wonder Europe is currently falling to pieces! No wonder murderous refugees are literally killing people in nightclubs, bars and trains with no punishment!

    The American police might equip some dumbasses with guns from time to time but at least we put down the 'dindu nuffins' for good.

    Everyone's berating our police here in the United States in the comment section. Do you realize the danger these men face every day? They want to get home to their families. I can't describe how much respect I have not only for our officers in the US but in the UK as well. But when someone tries to kill you, I think deadly force is totally justified.

    That dude would be swiss cheese within about 2 seconds if he did that in the USA from being shot probably 40-50 times before he even got anywhere near police with a knife. If you were to put a UK Cop in a major city in the U.S., he would get killed. USA police don't take crap from thugs and criminals like UK cops do. UK cops want to use a taser and pepper spray, which are non-lethal weapons to counter a knife which is a deadly weapon. Who has the advantage in that situation, the cops or the criminal??

    Even armed officers and tactical officers here only shoot for certain part of the body, even ysing a gun as last resort they still try not to kill but yanks kill a man just for parking incorrectly

    Watch the UK police get chased down, assaulted , and unable to protect themselves or the public, especially in large crowds.   So yes, we can learn something from the UK police, carry more weapons.

    There are also a video in the UK where there is 5 cops trying to disarm a man with a knife and 3 of the cops were rushed and stabbed, the man in this video was trying to run not to kill

  8. Mauling says:

    Convenient how you edit the video to show that the UK officer didn't disarm or do anything to take down the knife wielder. The UK officer and his partner detained the criminal after he tried to run away but stumbled.

    instead of making the usa police look bad how about you be a cop with a gun for one day and see what you would do. you would shoot because you don't want to get stabed

    (usa police need more traning too)

  10. illidur says:

    You could actually look up how cops in USA adjust their use of force and make a real argument against it instead of making a crap video of cherry picked examples.

  11. Alex Grant says:

    a taser is a non lethal weapon – a knife is a lethal weapon – In all situations lethal force is not only justified its to be expected if you approach an officer with a knife

  12. Andrew Davies says:

    I'd prefer our UK cops to learn from the America ones. if someone is enough of a lunatic to run at an armed cop with a knife what will they do to an unarmed civilian? better world without them

    Because of the recent alleged "terror attacks" in london we now have a Shoot to kill policy on the streets of the UK.

    The three "terrorists" in the recent attack were gunned down dead (50+ bullets) but were only carrying knives.

  14. Butter Fly says:

    US cops shoot them dead! good! take a lesson from the Philippine president. kill most criminals to make this world a safer place! US citizens carry firearms too. what do u expect a cop to do? beat them with a stick?

    What the UK police did is what police in majority of European countries do.It is actually considered normal police work and I don't see anything specifically heroic in their actions.On the other hand the US cops are taught to not take even 1% risk.They will rather take your life instead of risking their well being even a little.And it is legalized by the corrupt US system so they almost never get in trouble.But they will get in trouble for saying the n word on twitter alright

    First of all you gotta realize the people with the knife most likely want to die if they don't put the knife away when told. Secondly, knives are very lethal and if a person with a knife starts running at you a taser will not always stop them and you will be forced to shoot to save yourself and people around you

    A police officer says drop the knife, you drop the knife. Simple. If you resist they will take action whether it's with a gun or not. People shot by police usually just don't do what the officer says so they fire at them. Fair to me. These people carrying weapons could have just not carried weapons and been like everyone else and found something better to do. They are the keepers of their destiny.

    The first guy was slow and im glad no one was hurt.

    The second guy was quick and that cop was in an enclosed space and had to shoot I think.

    The third guy could have been handled differently but a guy who would stab a cop shouldn't be allowed to run away so he can stab random people in the street.

    If there were as many guns on UK streets the cops would have to shoot people to. Obey the law. Don't get shot. Pretty simple really.
