A thief who stole a very special flag, gave in to pangs of conscience, when he returned it to its rightful owner -- with an apology.
That's because he stole it from the family of a firefighter killed on 9/11
As the NYPost reported, The flag he stole flew over the World Trade Center during recovery efforts. The September 11th Families Association gave it to Melissa Brengel in honor of her 29-year-old brother, Jonathan Ielpi, an FDNY member who died when terrorists destroyed the World Trade Center.
Brengel reported the flag missing from her home in Huntington Station, L.I., on Tuesday.

I'd take him here in NY over the Marxist mayor or the evil eye governor any day. Heck he'd make a superior senator over the crap NY sends to DC too.
