I didn't say that was what would cause civilians to react, it's the fact that he drove through the entrance of a bank that's an obvious case of a very dangerous crime. The cops should definitely be on the look for anything unusual since they will expect bank robbers to try to escape. The way some of you act around this it must feel like magic when police actually catches criminals in the real world. Yes, because that's not something a cop or two can do unnoticed, it's something that would be apparent to tons of people, especially the hospital matter. I don't assume that. Why do you assume that I do when I've written nothing about that? There are many more cases, and that's not questionable, it's something that just never happens. Even the comic, which I haven't read and don't know the tone of, has the Joker handcuffed. Not to the table as is normal procedure though. The police will always make sure that their own are safe and that definitely does not include locking someone in a room with an unrestrained and dangerous prisoner. That he's armed is a real BS argument since they of course intend to bring justice to the criminal, not force someone to shoot him. But keep piling on guys, I'm sure it will help the more people insert themselves in the conversation.
