So...how does the world disincentivize such criminal activity?

Although, part of me is not unamused by the karma potential of attackers ending up hurting everyone they care about for scalping a few bucks.

Separate the attacker from their objective that satisfies their motivation.

Remove the money and there is less motivation for robbers. That is why convenience stores began using time-locked safes, to remove the money from the cash register. It made a huge difference.
