Dog Day Afternoon

Sonny and Sal try to rob a bank, because Sonny needs money for his gay lover who wants a sex change operation.
Unfortunately, the police is alarmed, and it turns into a hostage.
Sonny and Sal try to escape with a jet to foreign countries, but their plan doesn't succeed

Continuity mistake: Just after Sonny says, of Sal, that "that man bites" a potted plant seems to disappear then reappear from the counter. Sonny and the head cashier are moving down the counter getting the cash from each position as they go and, if you look at the signs on the counter, you can see that some shots are shown out of order; there are some shots of "Maria"'s position (no plant) interleaved with the previous position (with a plant). But the end effect is the same - appearing and disappearing plant. (00:12:20)

Question: What would've happened if Sonny drove the limo himself, refused to tell the police where they were going, and told the police not to follow them? Also, if Sal had hostages sitting behind him as well, making it impossible for the police to get a clean shot? How could the police have stopped them, without getting any hostages killed?
