Viewers quickly flooded the comments with their takes on the shocking situation.

“What is happening to us as a society?” One user commented.

Another user replied: “Why are they allowing it? Where is the security guard?”

Many people have also commented that phones are essentially useless to thieves and that intervening with robberies is against the policy of most phone companies.

Someone commented: “As someone who’s worked in wireless sales for years I can attest that those phones are glorified paperweights. They have no use whatsoever.”

Another said: “I’ve worked in wireless sales and intervening with robberies is against policy and for your own good. The goal is to comply and let them leave asap.”
