Jim Jeffries: there must be a better way than police shooting a suspect with a knife.
Police officer says police shooting a suspect happens like once every 10 years.

The video that you posted seems to no longer be relevant today.
The posting date on YT for that Jim Jeffries video that you posted was Sep 19, 2017
He must have overlooked the incident that occured only 3 months earlier in June 2017:

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/201 ... ht-minutesThe terrorists who struck in London on Saturday night would have killed more people if police had not managed to find and stop them within minutes of the violence beginning.
Sources described the police response time as “fantastic”. The number of armed officers always on duty has been increased after previous terrorist atrocities.
London terror attack: what we know so far
The officers who shot dead the terrorists were in police armed response vehicles (ARVs), which regularly patrol big cities and other areas across Britain. ARVs usually carry three officers apiece and they are the first armed responders to incidents. The number of ARVs was increased in the UK after the November 2015 attacks in Paris revealed the vulnerability of cities to marauding terrorist attacks.
The eight officers who opened fire, in the London Bridge area, discharged an estimated and “unprecedented” 50 rounds at what they feared to be suicide bombers on the rampage. The officers were believed to be in the Met and City of London forces.
The officers would have been equipped with side arms and heavier weapons. The G36 semi-automatic rifle was the traditional gun of choice but increasing numbers of officers are opting for SIG 516 weapons.
The first calls, which were about a van hitting pedestrians on London Bridge, would have triggered a major response and a set of challenges. The first aim would have been to find out what was going on, possibly immensely difficult amid the intense chaos and conflicting reports.
Eight police officers firing 50 shots at men who were armed with a van and knives.
Jeffries ALSO seems to have overlooked the 2017 Westminster attack which occurred in March 2017.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Westminster_attackOn 22 March 2017, a terrorist attack took place outside the Palace of Westminster in London, seat of the British Parliament. The attacker, 52-year-old Briton Khalid Masood, drove a car into pedestrians on the pavement along the south side of Westminster Bridge and Bridge Street, injuring more than 50 people, four of them fatally. He then crashed the car into the perimeter fence of the Palace grounds and ran into New Palace Yard, where he fatally stabbed an unarmed police officer. He was then shot by an armed police officer and died at the scene.
And it turns out the video was misleading when it was first aired in 2017
