this is used in True Detective to some extent
The shootout at the end of the second episode was both amazing to watch and utterly ludicrous. Eight or ten cops armed with pistols take on a bunch of double-hard Mexican cartel types packing AKs and UZIs in the middle of a city in the middle of the day? And they don't, at any point, think "we're a bit out of our depth here, perhaps we should call in the SWAT team/Delta Force/Navy Seals"?
I dunno, maybe that actually just routinely happens in America.
