Somehow this boy was raised right.
CNN said:A young boy came to the defense of a black man on the Fourth of July as the boy's father questioned and later called the police on the man who said he was waiting for a friend at a San Francisco apartment building.
Wesly Michel recorded his encounter with the boy and his father, who appears to be white, and shared the video on Facebook, where it has garnered more than 1.2 million views.
During the three-and-a-half-minute recording, the boy can be heard pleading with his father not to call police on Michel, whom the father says is a "trespasser" in his building.
Michel encountered the father and son on Independence Day as he says he was waiting on a friend at an apartment building in San Francisco. The video begins as the man asks
Michel to identify the person he is there to see and to "please call your friend on the call box and have them come down and get you." Michel declines. "They don't have to do that. You can just walk away," Michel responds.
The man, who appears to be holding open the door to the building during the conversation, tells Michel he's going to call the police. "Daddy don't!" the child says as the man pulls out his cell phone. Michel welcomes the call and reminds the man that he is being recorded. "You're just gonna be the next person on TV, just remember that and you have your son with you," Michel tells the man. The man calls the police and tells them that Michel is a "trespasser," who "tailgated" into the building, walking in as he was walking out. As the man talks to police, his son begins pleading with him to leave and to not call police.
"Dad, don't. Please go," the boy says. "Daddy go. It's the better; I agree with him, daddy."
The boy begins to cry as his father describes Michel to police.
"Daddy, I don't like this. Let's go," he says.
