The thing is Treo - you, and several others, have said that you would do nothing to PREVENT the robber from killing my wife and kids while you eat your waffles. You have said that you will, in 99.8% of circumstances, not do anything until the criminal has actually physically ATTACKED (past tense) my wife and kids. Then, all of a sudden, after the attack has happened and people have already been wounded, it's more probable that you will act. Why the change of heart? Why not just let the robber escape? What difference does it make to you if the robber escapes with Waffle House money or Waffle House employee blood on their hands? You are willing to eat your waffles until you hear the bang of the gun going off, why not just continue to eat your waffles as the criminal runs out the door and maybe, if it isn't too much bother, render first aid to the injured victims after they have left.
