Help Catch Thieves Who Targeted Couple with Cerebral Palsy

Today's edition of the Good Stuff begins with some, well, not-so-good stuff, when an ordinary day at the mall for a disabled couple takes a turn for the worse. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Carolyn and her husband have cerebral palsy.

Both are wheelchair-bound, but they are undeterred.

Carolyn reviews novels for a living, and her husband bought her a tablet in hopes of making her job easier.

The pair was patiently waiting to board a bus home. Two thieves had other plans.

They scoped the couple out, spotted Carolyn's tablet, made the grab, and ran off.

But here's where the bad becomes good: the victims have already forgiven the perpetrators.

"If they stole from me, they've got bigger problems than I do," Carolyn said.

And the other promising element?

Mall security cameras captured the likenesses of the two thieves, increasing their chances of being caught and brought to justice.

If you have any information about their identities, please contact the Seattle Police Department.

    And people like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson wonder why "HIS PEOPLE" are looked at!!

    Here's a question i'd like either of them to answer? When that 2yr old Girl from Chicago was gunned down while riding her tricycle? Why didn't they voice out about that? why didn't they make a point about the young lady dying for no reason. but he'll make it a point to talk about a grown man who had strong armed an innocent shop owner minutes before his death.

    I KNOW THE ANSWER TO THIS, I WANT TO SEE IF THEY DO AS WELL!

    So, what have the police done, other than nothing? They're probably too busy arresting somebody who was filming the cops doing something illegal.
