From a self preservation perspective, two scenarios you just invited are either him wising up, getting anxious and deciding to take out more victims, or the police actually arriving at McDonalds and that's where the show down is.

Kudos to them for having the gall to get involved in such a volatile situation, though.
I know when I worked at McDonald's in high school, it was standard operating procedure to ask suspected drunk drivers in the drive through to pull into the waiting area as their order "would be a few minutes". Then we'd call the cops and report them, the real kicker being we'd still bring them their food once we saw the cops pull into the parking lot.

So it's possible the staff were doing exactly what they were trained to do "If you suspect a danger exist, ask the customer to pull into a parking spot to wait for their order, then call law enforcement."

Thanks for the tip, next time I'm told to wait, I'll be peeling out of their in a big black cloud of tire smoke and exhaust.
