That is as Jeff presented it to us and what became the core of the Color Code.
Furthermore, we have the possibility, as proposed in a prior post, that our victim was in fact "watching his six" using a mirror at the ATM.
Bottom line is that in my opinion your characterization of the victim as being in Condition White is unwarranted. And in any case, the real point is that he was able to act decisively and take advantage of an opportunity.
