I was one who voted to let the robbery happen back in that post way back. This case is different for me personally, because I'm being told to comply and let this BG trap me in a room.
Let's just say in this scenario, I would not comply.
This is what I was wondering. Seems to me the second they do anything other than "give me the money" all bets are off. Rounding people up and making them all go somewhere screams "hostage situation" to me.
The purpose of my OP was mostly to see if others felt these actions would imply the BG was planning something worse than a quick hold up robbery. In this case, he wasn't... but there is no way to know that ahead of time.
