Thelma and Louise

Factual error: After JD steals Louise's money, Thelma decides to rectify the fact that they're broke by robbing a convenience store in Oklahoma. She holds the clerk at gunpoint, asks for all the cash, and then requests he hand over a bottle of booze. The problem is, due to the liquor laws in Oklahoma, one can only buy 3.2 beer and wine coolers at grocery stores and convenience stores, not "hard" alcohol.

Factual error: As the Highway Patrol officer approaches T&L we see that there is a carrier for 12 rounds of ammo (obviously for a revolver most likely a .38 Spl or .357 magnum) on his gun belt. When he surrenders his weapon we find it is a semi-automatic pistol. The cartridges on his belt would not be compatible with a semi-automatic pistol which he was carrying.

Visible crew/equipment: Louise's sunglasses reflect equipment in several scenes, for example the camera when they drive to Oklahoma, or stage lighting when they wait at the train crossing. (00:33:25 - 00:41:55)

Question: Why does Harvey Keitel hold up his hand as he is chasing after Thelma and Louise at the end of the movie? I always felt he did it to keep the officers from shooting at them, but a friend of mine was saying he simply did it to try to get their attention so they wouldn't drive off the cliff. Any other opinions?

Chosen answer: It's just as you said; he was telling the others to hold their fire. He had no idea that they were going to drive off the cliff; his reaction was evidence of this.
