Man Bites Dog, Part II

About a month ago, we posted this about a social worker in New York who dealt with a mugger in a rather unusual way. Today, there was a similar story highlighted at GetReligion, this one from the Baltimore Sun. The story this time is about a Roman Catholic nun (actually, a "sister" probably) , so there is no religious ghost in that sense. While the sister acts in very much the same spirit as the social worker, there is no question about her motivation.

"Nun offers mercy, but robber gets jail: Sister's kind words prompt tears in county courtroom"

Thank God for people such as these...
