This mom is NOT messing around! One Baltimore parent is being called ‘mother of the year’ after catching her masked son trying to riot over the death of Freddie Gray. Click to watch her amazing reaction!
As the riots and looting escalate in Baltimore, Maryland over the death of Freddie Gray, there’s one protective mother who won’t stand to see her child get involved. Not only does she reprimand him, but she repeatedly smacks the boy and drags him back home. I think she got her message across.
Baltimore Mom Sees Her Son Rioting & Takes Matters Into Her Own Hands
When one Baltimore mom spotted her son on TV throwing rocks at police, she took matters into her own hands.
She marched down to the scene and found her son, even though he was dressed head-to-toe in black and a black ski mask. Lets just call it motherly instinct! When she got her hands on him, she made sure to knock some sense into the boy with some good ol’ fashion discipline.
The encounter, which was captured by WMAR, showed the furious mom screaming at her son. Clearly, she wasn’t getting through to him, so she repeatedly slaps the kid upside the head. He tries to get away from her blows, but she chases him down and drags his behind home. Talk about a smack down!
Amazing, good for her for taking a stand!
Baltimore Police Commissioner: ‘Take Control Of Your Kids’
Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts spoke out at a press conference and mentioned this mother’s courageous actions.
He told the press, “In one scene you had a mother who grabbed a child who had a hood on his head and started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed. I wish there were more parents out there who took charge of their kids tonight.”
He also added, “Take control of your kids. This is our city, let’s make a difference.”
