    Sounds like an inside job to me... or possible ..... stuff stolen, collects insurance, gets money when items sold on black market, and has friend hit him in the head ... with a laceration. Uh huh..... this one smells like a fish pond to me.

    That sounds like you escalated the situation in prosecution lingo.
    It's certainly going to be taken badly by any BG attempting escape, but it's hardly "escalation" on the part of the GG. Escalation? That's like suggesting the managers of the just-robbed bank escalated things by blocking-in the escaping BG in one of those bullet-proof exit areas, justifying any response the BG subsequently did to "defend" against that. Nope, that won't fly.
