The guy successfully deters the robber and the police instructions are "Give them what they want" and "Obey the robbers instructions". Sheesh...
The police instructions are appropriate given that the majority of the population is unarmed and lacking in self defense knowledge and/or competency.

Eric did well in this case, in part, because he wasn't dealing with a determined and armed attacker. It was a bit funny that the suspect was trying to rob a security guard.

Given the advice in the bullet points, this man was wrong for defending himself and his property.
Given the bullet points, he wasn't wrong. The bullet points are not absolutes. They are suggested behaviors to get through the situation quickly and to reduce physical risk for the intended victim.
