    You will not look in my pocket!

    Does this "will" mean "presumption" or "command"?

    41)Alex saw the rich woman in the aisle put some chocolate bars in her pocket. “Vincent!” he said quietly. “Did (d) you see that?” “Yes, I did,” Vincent answered. He was still busy taking pictures. They waited for the woman to go to the front. She did not pay for the chocolate. Alex could not be quiet anymore. “That woman is a thief!” he shouted. The woman was very angry. “You are a liar!” she shouted.Vincent saw a police officer outside, and brought (e) him inside. “What’s the problem?” the officer asked. Vincent told the story, but the adults did not believe (b) him. The woman was rich, and her husband was a very important man. “Look in her pocket!” Vincent said. “You will not look in my pocket!” the woman shouted. “If you don’t believe me, I will call my husband. You will all lose your jobs!” The store owner counted the chocolate bars in the box on the shelf. Two were missing.

    You will not look in my pocket!

    To me, this is an imperative, a command.
    It means, "I insist that you not look in my pocket!".
