One very angry Baltimore mom who was caught on video doing some hands-on parenting is being hailed as “mom of the year” today. She’s getting viral kudos for physically removing her son from the Baltimore riot while swinging at him every step of the way. Under almost any other circumstance this Baltimore mom might be called a child abuser, but her son was seen on national TV throwing rocks at police and joining in on the Baltimore riots.
The mystery woman has become an instant icon of good parenting as she is seen swinging at her son while telling him to take that “f—king mask off.” The son, who looks to be a teenager and who also has not been identified, towered over his mom, according to the Washington Post on April 28. She wasn’t going to let his size stop her from giving him a rude awakening and making him see the error of his ways.
When the Baltimore Police Department asked parents to get their children off the street, this one mom went above and beyond. As Us Magazine suggests, this mom “was more than cooperative.” Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts made reference to the mom in his overnight news conference. He said:
“And if you saw in one scene, you had a mother who grabbed their child who had a hood on his head and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed. I wish I had more parents who took charge of their kids tonight. I think these were youth coming out of the high school and they thought it was cute to throw cinder blocks at the police department and address it that way.”
According to ABC affiliate, WMAR, this Baltimore mom saw her son throwing rocks at police on television and she got up and went to find her son. He appeared to be one of the high school kids who happened upon this riot while coming home from school and who thought it would be “cute” to join in, which is what the police commissioner talked about in his news conference last night.
That mom was relentlessly pursuing her son as he tried walking away from her. She kept swinging and demanding that he take the mask and hood off and stop what he was doing. This unnamed woman is has become a hero emerging from these violent acts of rage that morphed into a riot. A riot that made no sense at all.
The violence against community businesses and burning of buildings did nothing but put the hard working people of Baltimore in dire straits. A woman who built up her beauty parlor business and realized the American dream watch it get destroyed in these riots, but why, what does this prove?
You can see the clip of the mom forcing her son home in the video above. She is being referred to as “mom of the year,” all over the media today. This mom is also being applauded across the nation today for taking the stand that she did with her son.
