A victim of 9/11 hate crime now fights for his attacker's life
Immigrant badly wounded by 'Arab Slayer' mounts long-shot bid to halt execution
Days after the 9/11 terror attacks, 31-year old laborer Mark Stroman went on a shooting spree in the Dallas area. In a drug-fueled mission of revenge, he killed two South Asian immigrants and shot another — Rais Bhuiyan — in the face at close range, blinding him in one eye.
Shortly after his arrest, Stroman boasted of his role as "Arab Slayer."
Now, as Stroman faces imminent execution in Texas, an unlikely champion is fighting to save his life: Bhuiyan, who spent years recovering from the wounds he suffered in the attack.
"I've had many years to grow spiritually," said Bhuiyan, a Muslim who immigrated to the U.S. from Bangladesh and now works as technology professional in Dallas. "I'm trying to do my best not to allow the loss of another human life. I'll knock on every door possible."

For the most part, "the people" want forgiveness and living side by side. For those few who read the story and don't mock it out of hand, maybe this will be one more drip in the slow "drip drip drip" of this reality taking hold over the partisans of hate and vengeance.
Stepping back to the treetop level, it's always vengeance versus healing.
