Crazy footage reveals the moment this kid stood up to a bully.
Maybe he’d been watching too much Captain America, but the child took it upon himself to stop the robbers by hitting one in the stomach with a fluffy toy.
If the situation wasn’t dangerous I would say it was adorable!
Sadly his braveness wasn’t enough, he was pushed against the wall at gunpoint with his mother while the men proceeded to steal all of the cash. When the police arrived they praised this little vigilante for his efforts.
The boy’s mother, who did not want to identify herself or her son, told NBC: ‘Well, he’s tough. He’s tough and, you know, I think instincts come out in situations like that.’
His father said: ‘It was scary. You’re never prepared for something like that. You’re not. So, you don’t wish it on your worst enemy.
‘When it’s a young child, it’s especially upsetting and infuriating for us because there’s some innocence that’s lost there and there’s some fear introduced into his life that, of course, he doesn’t deserve.’
I don’t know about anyone else, but, when I was 7 there is no way I would have gone up to a man with a gun! Does this prove the child’s bravery, or is it him just being naive? If that were my kid either way I would be a proud momma!
