Sister Mary Knucklebuster Strikes
In it's entirety from The Daily Caller
Pittsburgh nun foils wallet theft with reprimand

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh thief turned out to be no match for a little nun with a commanding voice.

Sister Lynn Rettinger didn’t even have to break out a ruler for a man who reached into an opened car window and stole a wallet Tuesday. She just needed the tone of voice she’s used for nearly 50 years in Catholic schools.

After a teacher saw the man swipe the wallet, the 5-foot-3 principal of Sacred Heart Elementary School went outside and firmly told the man: “You need to give me what you have.”

The thief turned over the wallet, apologized and walked away.

Rettinger said she merely talked to him as she would to students when she knows they have something they shouldn’t.

Police are still looking for the man.

She most likely looked at him over the top of her glasses, too. That always got me to behave.

The sight if her Guardian Angel standing menacingly by her side probably helped as well.
