    I have a hard time fully comprehending this situation because I feel like there are two distinct arguments that can be made. On one hand, I do see where the man that pursued the robbers was coming from. I have never seen someone steal from a store but I feel that if I did I would also be prompted to take some kind of action, but having said that, the actions that I would take would be to speak to an employee in the store while the robbers were still there. It makes it seem like we are missing something from the story because why would the man approach the robbers after they were done with the robbery. The actions that this man chose to make instead were very severe. Opening fire in an area such as a mall is very risky and, in my opinion, not thought out at all. I am not advocating stealing but I can’t help but think that they were only taking something from Victoria’s Secret, is that really worth putting another person’s life at risk? In my opinion I think that the man that tried to stop the robbers did much more harm than the robbers themselves did.
