I guess it's one of those stories that if it weren't so wrong and pathetic, it would almost be comical. But nobody is laughing about the guy who got up the courage to try to rob a Helena Papa John's Pizza restaurant. He changed his mind after the clerk handed over the money. He broke down crying and ended leaving with a pizza to feed his family. Wearing a hooded sweatshirt and bandanna, he enters the restaurant and hands the clerk a note demanding money. The employee complied, but then the would-be robber started crying and said he was just trying to provide for his family. So, the clerk offers to make him a pizza and some chicken wings. The guy waits outside for his order then leaves on foot. I hope he departed with lots of apologies and thank yous.
