While on his way to celebrate the holidays...such a shame. Unfortunately, this goes to show you that even with a world of self defense knowledge, going up agianst an armed assailant is usually not a good idea. Sure they could have been killed anyway, but its entirely possible the robbers may have just taken their valuables and left.

I think the best bet in a situation like that is probably just to give them what they want and hope for the best. Maybe he thought it wouldn't matter and decided he would be better off trying to defend himself. Very unfortunate either way.

In Brazil it doesn't matter, they almost always kill their kidnap victims.

But he was kidnapped only fter he fought back according to the story. You are probably right though, there are some crazies in Brazil for sure.
