He stays silent and keeps his head down. “What are you doing out so late, don’t you know it’s dangerous outside, you could run into some really bad guys” says another one, as they all start laughing. The boy grins as he starts to chuckle. “Hey what’s funny” asks the leader of the gang. “You guy’s are so stupid” says the young male while looking down. “You got a big mouth hey” the leader takes out a pocket knife and walks towards the young boy and grabs him by his shirt. “Now repeat what you said my boys didn’t hear it”.
