UK Police Take Down Knife Wielding Man. What Would Happen In The U.S.?

 It's 5 years old, so it hasn't been specially made for the present, that makes it even more powerful.

Police officers in Corby, UK were attacked by a man with a knife. They used pepper spray and batons to take him down. But in the U.S., some cops have a very different way of dealing with the problem.

In the US, he would be turned into Swiss cheese.

One reason is stricter fire-arms regulations in the UK: i.e. naughty people wandering around the streets carrying a pistol are much less common in the UK. Thus UK police do not need to resort to a gunfight as a first resort.
