(DETROIT FREE PRESS) — The 86-year-old World War II veteran whose leg was broken during a carjacking says he forgives the man accused of accosting him – but would still like to see him do a little time in jail.

Brantley said he was hit from behind before the keys were snatched out of his hand. He then crawled with a broken leg into the gas station when no one came to his aid.
