While the interaction between the teens and Joey was occurring, a man was taking notice. He was sitting on a bench near where the little boy had been playing, reading on his tablet. But as the teasing escalated, he turned his attention toward the four boys. At one point, the older teen kicked the ball away to the other side of the footpath. That’s when the man decided to act.

As the boy and the three teens raced to reach the ball, the man stood up and followed them. “Gentlemen,” he said. “What are you doing?” The teens seemed startled to be interrupted by a stranger. “Just playing ball, sir,” said the leader. But the man was not buying it.

“You got a problem?” he asked the teens. “Why are you picking on a little kid?” The boys were stumped and didn’t know how to answer his question. “Playing ball,” the teen repeated in a low voice. His demeanor had changed, and now he was standing with his head down, clearly uncomfortable. The man’s words were having an effect.

“Don’t you think your parents would love this? You guys getting arrested for picking on a little kid?” the man asked them. “You think they’d be proud of you?” The older boy had no answer to offer but a quiet “no, sir.” The man then turned to the other two teens, who had been conspicuously silent.

“Why didn’t you guys stop him?” the man grilled them. “You guys wanna be part of this?” Again, a “no, sir.” Satisfied that his message had come across, he turned to the little boy. “Are you ok?” he asked him. “Why don’t you take your ball, and we’ll go over there,” he said, offering to play with him. He then asked the teens to leave. But there was still had one more thing to do that would really slam the message home for these teens.
