  1. Store owner gives would-be robber $40, bread
    Bat-wielding man collapsed in tears, saying it was to feed starving family

    GARDEN CITY, N.Y. - A Long Island convenience store owner confronted by a bat-wielding would-be robber said Tuesday he decided to show mercy on the man after seeing him collapse into tears and claim he was only committing the crime to support his starving family.

    The store owner provided the man with $40 and a loaf of bread and made him promise never to rob again.

    "This was a grown man, crying like a baby," Mohammad Sohail, owner of the Shirley Express convenience store about 65 miles east of New York City, told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.

    The man dropped the bread, picked up the bat and tucked the $40 into his waistband before fleeing, said Suffolk County police Sgt. John Best.

    Sohail, who moved to the United States from Pakistan about 20 years ago, said he was getting ready to close his store shortly after midnight on May 21 when a man in his 40s entered with a bat in his hand. Sohail said he tried to stall for a moment and then grabbed a rifle he keeps behind the counter and ordered the assailant to drop the bat.

    The would-be thief dropped to his knees and begged for forgiveness, Sohail said.

    "He started crying that he was out of work and was trying to feed his hungry family," he said. "I felt bad for him. I mean, this wasn't some kid."

    He said he tossed $40 to the man, who then stood up and told Sohail he wanted to become a fellow Muslim. Sohail said he then pretended to swear the man into the Muslim faith and two ended up shaking hands.

    Sohail said he went to the back of the store to get some milk to give to the man, but when he returned the man had fled. He said he called police and reported the attempted robbery, but he doesn't want to press charges if the man is ever caught.

    Best said detectives have reviewed a store surveillance video of the attempted holdup, but said it would be difficult for anyone to identify the suspect because he was wearing a mask.

    Sohail, who said he had never been the victim of a robbery attempt, said he didn't expect any accolades for what he had done.

    "I'm a very little man. I just did a good job," said the married father of one. "I have a good feeling in my heart. I feel very good."

  3. What I am saying, you could find crazy in every culture and religion Tom B. I really think that it shows how tasteless and vindictive you are when you tie a crime committed by Al Qaeda to the Islamic religion. Yes Al Qaeda is a Muslim group but are all Muslims Al Qaeda?

    When you lumped Islam with Al Qaeda under one thread titled "The Religion of Peace Strikes Again", you wiped any difference between you and an Al Qaeda man who tells the Muslim Populous that the United States and Christianity are evil blood thirsty and ties, via bogus evidence, crimes committed against them to the US and Christianity in hope of generating vengeful hate. Both of you meet under the same banner, a total and catastrophic war.

    That is why my friend, a Neo Conservative like you makes me as sick as an Al Qaeda guy.

    The fact that you would state that a member of Al Qaeda and a neo conservative are morally equivalent shows that you are a Muslim fanatic.

    BTW, there are hundreds of millions of "religion of peace" members who agree with Al Qaeda.
  5. Here you go on needlessly using the weapon of stupidity in attacking your opponents. You guys throw insults on a whim don't you? You were waiting for me to confront you so that you could take this insult off your chest weren't you.

    Out of a sudden, I ended up being a Muslim Fanatic.

    Too bad for you that my views are shared by many Americans. Problem is is, they are not even Muslims! I guess you could label them as Christian Muslim Fanatics.
