Mensagem:  The problem with shall is that it envolves an idea of personal commitment, that's why it would be odd to say ...the police shan't...after all they are only following orders, it is not the case they have a personal commitment in not letting people in. On a comic side, maybe if we had Gandalf there, he would be willing in not letting people in "You shall not pass".
