Don't be a jerk and get smoked over being resistant
Although some of the language throughout seems confrontational, a robbery where Biggie has to shoot and kill his victim is a failed one, as cops will investigate a murder more thoroughly than an armed robbery.
So it inconveniences them both more if the victim is resistant (Biggie has a bigger rap and more police woes, and of course the victim is left critically injured or dead)
