not being there it’s hard to say what I’d do in this specific case. But I will say that I wouldn’t draw my weapon to protect someone’s property. The escalation just isn’t worth it. I’ve come around on intervening if loss of life is imminent or if threat is sufficiently high.

The updated news report says that they were beating the old lady to get the key fob from her. Elderly are fragile people, a "light" beating that a healthy adult can withstand easily might be deadly to them.
So I can see why this gentleman intervened.
