Mom slaps son taking part in Baltimore riots

BALTIMORE (WISH) – Video of a woman attacking a rioter in Baltimore has gone viral.

She hits a young-looking man dressed in all black, wearing a black hood, and drags him off the street.

According to WMAR, the Baltimore television station that captured the scene, the woman is the man’s mother.

Baltimore’s police commissioner praised her.

“You had one mother who grabbed her child, who had a hood on his head, and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed,” Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said. “I wish I had more parents that took charge of their kids out there.”

Some social media posts are calling the woman “Mom of the Year.”
