Do you believe Allah (God) is Merciful? (YES)
Does He still punishes the wrongdoers? (YES he does)

So similary the Prophet (s) who was not only a messenger, but also a General, a Judge, and a Family man, has to implement the Law of God on the Land of God.

The example you gave of the people, they robbed a man who helped them. but they still robbed and killed him. So the Messenger of God has to implement the Law of God and do Justice on the Land. He has to provide Justice to the wronged ones.
Once a women from the his own tribe stole some jewelry, when her case reached the Prophet (s), he said her hand should be cut. But the people told the Prophet (s) that she is from a very very noble family. At this the Prophet (s) said even if my daughter Fatima stole something, she will also get the same punishment as that lady (think of Paris Hilton, didn't you appreciate the Judge's decision who despite all the preassure implemented the law of the Land on this "noble lady"?)

But on the other hand if anyone wronged him personally, he always forgave them.

Thats why he is called the Prophet of Mercy.
