The cops are trying to disarm (or kill, only as a last resort) the "bad guy." They're constrained in this pursuit by not wanting to kill or injure innocent (or even, in this case, not innocent) bystanders. They're also afraid of losing their jobs and trying to avoid being attacked by the indigenous personnel. The bad guy has no such constraints, nor would a "good guy/gal" with a gun. Yeah, if some thug is shooting up the joint and I'm armed, I'm going to try to kill him without either hitting someone else or getting shot myself, but my first order of business is going to be putting the SOB down.
