    Robber hugs and prays with clerk, leaves with $20, and then turns himself in

    Police said Smith jumped behind the counter and pointed a gun at the female clerk, but then became remorseful when she began crying and talking about God."He, at that time, starts to basically console her," said Indianapolis police Detective Kevin Wethington.Police said the robber told the clerk that he hated to do it, but times are hard and he has a 2-year-old child to support.Surveillance video showed the clerk praying with the robber, who even went so far as to hug the frightened female clerk."They were actually praying at this point about the decisions that he's making," Wethington said.

    When the clerk pleaded with the gunman not to shoot her, police said he made a shocking gesture to put her at ease, police said."He reaches down, hands her the bullet out of his gun," Wethington said.After 30 minutes of conversation with the clerk, the robber grabbed about $20 from the register and the clerk's cell phone before he left, investigators said.

    hands her the bullet out of his gun
    One bullet? No wonder he's no good at it. He had to steal money for ammo. Hopefully he'll figure out what's wrong in his life and go legit.

    I guess he thought it was hug-a-thug time?
