Blimey! UK coppers disarm machete-wielding madman without killing him

If this had happened anywhere in the U.S., the man with the machete would have been shot dead within 30-seconds. At the very least, tazed to death, like the guy in Brooklyn who was armed with a light bulb.

You can see for yourself the comments made by American cops over at PoliceOne.com

These officer had plenty of options at there disposal here. They even had lethal force options present, why they chose not to go for it I don't know. Last time I checked the vehicle is a really big slow moving bullet and can do the job.

35 officers with shields? or one with a lethal force option? You decide...

How about one with some common sense and decency who doesn't crap his pants every time he sees a bad guy?

Yeah, this actually happened in Seattle and the cops didn't kill him. Get off your high horse you British snob.

Lol. I'm not a Brit. But just the same, when was the last time you heard about British coppers shooting an innocent man in the back on a subway platform, or sitting on a motorcycle stopped at a stop sign? When was the last time a Brit SWAT team went in and executed a war veteran in front of his wife and kids in his own home?

But since you brought it up, go ahead and give us a link to your Seattle story.
