You put the responsibility to behave and obey the law on the victim. Police said victim should have ran out the back door, he could have met a worse fate there. No questions if the criminals were armed. I think it safe to assume at least one of the three could have had a gun. While I respect your experience, there is no reason to expect another person to act as you do. Victim wasn't out and about, he was staying in the store to protect the property from criminals burglarizing businesses.
