Maybe he thought he saw a brazilian . Thought these guys were highly trained .
Generally speaking, police MP5s are carbines, i.e. they are single shot with no automatic/ burst capability.
It's typical clueless journos who keep writing "police armed with submachineguns" when they aren't and never have been.
They most likely are, although some may be confusing ability with ambition.
I always thought the definition of a submachine gun was a small, compact weapon firing pistol ammunition (normally select fire. S-1-F or S-1-3)
Its a shame he didn't shoot any yanks-see how they like friendly fire!
my Missus has got a Brazilian, why would the plod shoot at that??
I think the operative part of the description is machine-gun, i.e. a weapon capable of automatic or burst fire. Most police and paramilitary versions of such weapons converted to semi-automatic only are described as "carbines."
As well as the MP5 converted in this way, some UK forces use carbine versions of the AuG-Steyr firing 9mm rounds.
