Re: Question about Batman's tactic in Dark Knight

I think it was just a turn on expectations. Here we have this one particular big, strong, man coming up and saying "I'm going to do what you should have done 15 minutes ago," and then he makes the tough choice of just tossing the detonator out when you'd expect a criminal to be the first person to want to press the button. Meanwhile the good people and civilians were all for blowing up the cons (and innocent people on the boat.)

Hell, the people, overly ruled by society, even put it to a popular vote to see what they were to do and blowing the cons up won! Hell, you could say it has something to do with the way society dicks around with planning, voting and wasting time instead of just acting.
