It was a cold day in February of 2015 when Matt Buckland boarded the already-crowded subway en route to his London office. At one of the later stops, a young man who was evidently having a bad day got on the train.
But that young man’s day was about to get much, much worse.

This business of forgiving is by no means a simple thing…. We say, “Very well, if the other fellow is sorry and begs my pardon, I will forgive him, then I’ll give in.” We make of forgiveness a law of reciprocity. And this never works. For then both of us say to ourselves, “The other fellow has to make the first move.” And then I watch like a hawk to see whether the other person will flash a signal to me with his eyes or whether I can detect some small hint between the lines of his letter which shows that he is sorry. I am always on the point of forgiving…but I never forgive. I am far too just.

When the smoke cleared, a powerful advocate for Pakistani Christians lay in a puddle of his own blood.
For years, he served as a highly decorated law enforcement officer. President Clinton appointed him to the National Commission on Crime Prevention and Control in 1995 and he was honored as Sheriff of the Year in 2001. A jail in Colorado was even named after him!

Prisons in California were recently ordered to release a sizeable number of convicted criminals in order to reduce overpopulation at the state’s correctional facilities. In the process, over 10,000 law breakers were paroled. The early release was only intended to affect inmates deemed a “low risk” to society.
But something went terribly wrong.
On January 14, 2004, three friends got the wild idea to go streaking…through a restaurant. Seeing a Denny’s, they pulled into the parking lot, stripped down to nothing but their shoes and hats, and ran into the establishment wanting to give the patrons a surprise.
But it would be the three pranksters who got the “butt end” of the joke.
One time during the off season, an umpire in a softball league in Colorado got sopped by a cop for speeding. He pled for mercy, explained that he was a very safe driver, and told the cop why he absolutely had to be in such a hurry. The officer didn’t buy it. “Tell it to the judge,” he said as he handed the umpire a ticket.
