Reporter gets robbed live on the air!

I'm not an expert in crime by any means, but if you wanted to rob someone, wouldn't you want to avoid being caught on camera?

A reporter in Ecuador is shooting a live segment on a street, when a man comes into the shot with a gun and tries to rob the reporter--live on the air! When the reporter tries to get him to stop, the robber then turns the gun toward the camera man, and stole a mobile phone--ALL WHILE THE CAMERA ROLLED.

No one was hurt, but I'm completely baffled at this guy's brazenness and stupidity!
