A Victim Treats His Mugger Right

March 28, 2008 · Julio Diaz ends his daily subway commute one stop early, just so he can eat at his favorite diner. One evening, his routine was broken when a teenage mugger took his wallet at knifepoint. But neither of them could have predicted what happened next.

  1. I had a lot of thoughts run through my head when I read this. It’s a lovely, compassionate story that fills one with hope and gratitude. But it also makes me wonder if Diaz had run into a teen with a gun with the anger to use it, well, what would have happened. It’s unfortunate but I think he was lucky. And so was the young man whose life is changed because of this encounter. So I am of two mindsets on this story. And sad that I am even of two mindsets.
