    Good guy wasn't armed.

    Great intentions by our knight in cotton armor, but a cell phone call would've been more effective. If that were my wife or daughter getting robbed, I'd want someone to do something, but jumping into a situation unarmed escalated this.

    Hope this guy recovers and those three are caught SOON!

    Approaching THREE robbery suspects is bad enough, but unarmed?
    Not much in the article, but this guy needs some practice with his cell phone.

    A friend of mine said he read another article about this incident that said the man was WITH the lady and tried to help - not just a passer by. Either way - should have been armed I'd say.
