It truly takes an American mindset to think that gunfire is needed to arrest a domestic assailant.

Our cops just call them suspects. It's a time saver.

in news notifications yesterday there was a story, something like... a man entered a Bristol petrol station with a knife - negotiators are on the scene.
In fairness it could have been serious, i didn't follow it up, but for a moment i did think, lol Brits not giving up on being hilariously prosaic any time soon

Next time it will be a console borrowing the bike, but not being able to keep up.

An American cop would point a shotgun at guy's head and give him 5 secs to drop the knife?

Well, we also try to make sure every domestic assailant has unfettered access to high-powered firearms.

When life imitates Hot Fuzz: English cop politely borrows bike to chase down suspect


Except that didn't happen in Hot Fuzz. The closest bit would be when Sgt Angle Angel commandeered a can of spray paint.

There was an assailant on a bike, though:

How many of us are more like Constable Butterman than Sergeant Angle...Angel?

Point Break or Bad Boys 2?

Meanwhile, I walk out to go ride my bike to work just in time to see someone riding off with it from my bike shed.  Third vehicle in a year to get stolen.  Here's the bolo.

As opposed to the US, where they do 100+mph chases and shoot random people.
