*** Remember that multiple people from the jewelry store, including several police officers, are dead at this point from being shot as part of an armed robbery gone bad. This means everyone in the crew could be charged with Felony Murder, a death-penalty offense (most Felony Murder statutes state that everyone involved in the underlying crime is responsible for any and all deaths that occur during its commission or aftermath). Why leave someone alive who knows who they are?


Added DiffLines:

** Let's say White alone was caught. Joe and Eddie could "lawyer up" and refuse to say anything, and the cops would have no evidence other than White's uncorroborated word that Joe and Eddie were involved. The cops couldn't arrest Pink or Blonde and lean on them because White would have no idea who they were. That's why Pink was so freaked out about Orange having even partial information about White: If Orange (who Pink didn't know was an informant) was caught by the police and could identify White, their combined testimony would be enough to bring charges against Joe and Eddie, who might then give up Pink to the cops as part of a deal.

** RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic. This troper has been in several discussions, debates, and arguments where both himself and the other party will bring up a point/counter point that wasn't brought up to counter specifically because we had it prepared in our heads ahead of time, thought it sounded good/convincing, and felt like making the point even though the set up wasn't there.

* They made a pretty big deal about the colour-coded names thing, but was it really so important? They all knew Joe and Eddie who would have been the main targets of an investigation, and conversely, Joe and Eddie knew them all...

** Yep. He flat out says to Pink, Blond and White that they're going to have to kill Nash, since he's seen their faces.

* Did Eddie intend on killing the cop from the moment he saw he was there? He speaks very freely about his Daddy, names the associate he called and makes up plans right in front of him. Seems like a stupid thing to do if you intend on letting the guy go.

** Is it ever confirmed that he was shot in the head? Or did he injure his head when the car crashed? Or that it actually was a major wound?

**I think the reason he trailed the gasoline was to further torture the cop, psychologically. So that the cop would actually have to WATCH himself become engulfed in flames.

** In the original screenplay, Holdaway tells Orange that the plan is to arrest the robbers when they finish the heist, and then give them sweet deals in exchange for ratting on Joe and Eddie.
