Man Who Broke Up Teen Fight Was Honored By Atlantic City

Ibn Ali Miller, who stopped teen fight in viral video, was honored by Atlantic City

Atlantic City, New Jersey, honored the good Samaritan who brought peace to two fighting teens in a video that has received more than 31 million views.

Ibn Ali Miller, 26, teared up as he made remarks during an event on Wednesday night in which he and the two teens, 15-year-old Jamar Mobley and 18-year-old Sheldon Ward, were recognized. Ali used the moment to thank his mom for raising him to be the man that he is now.

“When I was young I grew up in the projects,” Miller said, holding the resolution the City Council presented to him. “When I would get on punishment she would make me read books … I’m crying because this whole situation deeply saddens me. The fact that it’s unbelievable. This should be very believable. This should be a norm and it should be regular.”

What a wise words and people should listen to it. Glad to see that some good deeds sometimes acknowledged.
