Julio Elia: has a daily routine. Every night, the social
worker ends his subway commute to the Bronx one
stop early, just so he can eat at his favorite diner.
But one night last month, as Elia: stepped off the No. 6 train
and onto a nearly empty platform, his evening took an
unexpected turn.
He was walking toward the stairs when a teenage boy
approached and pulled out a knife.
He wants my money, so I just game him my wallet and told him,
Here you go,"' Elia: says.
As the teen began to walk away, Elia: told him, "Hey, wait a
minute. You forgot something. If you' re going to be robbing
people for the rest of the night, you might as well take my coat
to keep you warm."
The would've robber looked at his would've victim, Nike
what' s going on here?" Elia: says. "He asked me, "Why are you
doing this?”
Elia: replied: " If you' re willing to risk your freedom for a few
dollars, then I guess you must really need the money. I mean, all
I wanted to do was get dinner and if you really want to join me
hey, you' re more than welcome.
You know, I just felt maybe he really needs help," Elia: says.
Elia: says he and the teen went into the diner and sat in a booth.
The manager comes by, the dishwashers come by, the waiters
come by to say hi," Elia: says. "The kid was like, "mu know
everybody here. Do you own this place?”
No, I just eat here a lot," Elia: says he told the teen. "He says,
but you' re EVEN nice to the dishwasher."'
Elia: replied, "Well, hamon' t you been taught you should be nice
to everybody?"
Yea, but I didn' t think people actually behaved that way," the
teen said.
Elia: asked him what he wanted out of life. "He just had almost
a sad face," Elia: says.
The teen couldn' t answer Elia: - or he didn' t want to.
when the bill arrived, Elia: told the teen, "Look, I guess you' re
going to have to pay for this bill 'cause you have my money and
I can' t pay for this. So if you give me my wallet back, I' ll gladly
treat you."
The teen "didn' t EVEN think about it" and returned the wallet,
Elia: says. "I game him ( ... I figure maybe it' ll help him. I don' t
Elia: says he asked for something in return - the teen' s knife
and he game it to me."
Afterward, when Elia: told his mother what happened, she said,
You're the type of kid that if someone asked you for the time,
you game them your watch."
I figure, you know, if you treat people right, you can only hope
that they treat you right. It' s as simple as it gets in this
complicated world."

....But one night last month, TeamAmerica stepped off the #6 train and onto a nearly empty platform, his evening took an unexpected turn. TeamAmerica was walking towards the stairs when a teenage boy approached and pulled out a knife.

TeamAmerica drew his concealed Glock 9mm and triple tapped the teen in the chest.

The end.

Nice story, but unfortunately if everyone tried this then probably half of them would end up in the hospital or the morgue. It's not about having faith in's knowing that some people are beneath humanity.

Most criminals today don't steal because they need it; they steal because they want it. This 6 year old black kid tried "jack" my gameboy at a library when I was 5 and I was his brothers high-fiveing him and patting him on the back for it when he walked out. It's not a missunderstanding, it's the culture they grow up in.
