A robbery in China took a bizarre turn when a mugger returned back the money he had snatched from his victim. A CCTV footage at an ATM machine captured in China’s Guangdong province shows the robber having a change of heart when he asked the lady to show him her account balance after taking her money.
To his surprise, the lady had nothing left in her bank account – and that’s when the man’s greed suddenly turned into compassion. Instead of leaving the victim behind traumatized and without any money, he decided to return the cash.
In the video, the crook, who has been identified by his surname Deng, approached the woman with a knife while she was withdrawing money. Fearing for her life, the victim, Li, immediately gave the man her cash.
Although Li already complied to his demand and gave the 2,500 yuan (approx. USD 375.00) she just withdrawn to the robber, the man still asked to see the victim’s ATM receipt, perhaps wanting to see how much more he could get from her.
After checking out the woman’s bank balance, the bad guy realized that his target is flat broke. So he laughed, smiled, and handed her the cash back.
Well, this is certainly something you don’t see every day. It’s not clear if this story should be filed under “weird crimes” or “uplifting news.”
The thief is being called chivalrous by some netizens on social media. But his seemingly noble gesture did not save the mugger from his crime as local authorities eventually caught and arrested him.
However, he did receive many compliments from netizens after the video went viral and have since become an internet sensation.
We strive every day to earn enough money to buy our needs, wants, and save for the future. But it’s moments like this that not having money in your bank account can surely be a blessing.

Singapore Will Abolish School Exam Rankings For One Good Reason
Learning is not a competition.
In an initiative that aims to encourage further learning among young students, the government of Singapore has officially announced its plans to abolish the age-old student ranking system for primary and secondary school. With this move, students' class positions will no longer be reflected in their school report books beginning next year.
In a statement, Education Minister Ong Ye Kung summed it up this way: “The change is to allow each student to focus on his or her learning progress and discourage them from being overly concerned about comparisons.”
