COMPLIANCE DOES NOT GAURANTEE SURVIVAL!!!
So true.....yet still so many sheep!
There's also been our fair share of "cashier complies and still dies" robberies in my area over the years as well. If someone comes in a store I am occupying saying "I have a gun" and/or "This is a robbery," then there is absolutely, positively, without-a-doubt, NO WAY IN 17 DIFFERENT TEMPERATURES OF HELL that I'm going to even THINK about complying. He's getting drawn down on and told to not move until police arrive to take him into custody. His failure to comply with me will be a fatal error on his part.
Flame me all you want with the legalities/liabilities of such an action, but I'd sooner be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
