Those that do are specialist units. Police carry Tazers . I think most have access to CS gas (or is it pepper spray). Yes, in less dangerous situations. I specifically mentioned 'armed police'. If they are present and there is a risk to life, they will take out those people out if they do not quickly comply. That's policy, as far as I'm aware because they have to make split-second decisions. The protection of the general public is paramount.
