9-year-old Brian Thomas-Riley saw an elderly woman struggling to get through a heavy glass door in an apartment building.

Without hesitation, the mindful child assisted her but was promptly dismissed by the woman who also hurled a racial epithet.


The young Black boy from Washington, Pennsylvania, told WXPI news reporter Marlisa Goldsmith, that the White woman called him the N-word and slammed the door in his face after his chivalrous endeavor.

And now that woman is facing eviction.

Thomas-Riley said he was trying to help the woman.

"But Susie slammed the door and almost hit my face."

He also claimed she called him the N-word.

"I was not happy about that."


The boy's father, Reverend GL Riley, was with his son during the incident. It was also captured on surveillance cameras.

The White woman also called Reverend Riley the N-word after insulting his son.

The father stated:

"He pushed the door a third of the way open and you heard, 'Get away you little [N-word] boy'."
"This was just cold and blatant. It's injustice. Period. And people need to be accountable for their action."

Riley posted the footage on his Facebook page of the moment his son tried to help the woman. Others soon shared it on Twitter and Instagram.



To demonstrate there are consequences for physical and verbal abuse, Riley contacted the City of Washington Police Department and filed a complaint.



Soon, people started praising "Beeps," which is a nickname Riley uses for his son.

The building manager told reporters the contemptible tenant, Susie, had a "history of verbal abuse."

This latest incident was the last straw that prompted owners to finally take action to evict her from the building.

You've probably stayed up late watching some television special about a criminal in your area and seen the announcement near the end: "If you have any information, call our tipline." The authorities might even offer a reward of some kind. But what are the chances that you might actually know of the person they're looking for?

People shared their stories after Redditor Renzot56 asked the online community,

"Has anyone here ever actually called into one of the FBI rewards for information on criminals and won the money?"

Often, high school is where students become rebellious. They're learning about themselves, they're testing boundaries, and they realizing that they can break the rules and sometimes get away with it.

Sometimes they're doing it to mess with a teacher who's treating students unfairly, sometimes they're doing it because they're standing up for the very little autonomy we afford kids in the first place.

Redditor CloudWoww wanted to know about those moments that are unforgettable defiance of authority.
