Yesterday we introduced you the “Mother of the Year,” who saw her son rioting and started to smack some sense in him, quite literally, which of course went viral. It was one of the most passionate displays of emotion d we’ve seen, rivaling Ray Lewis’ plea.
Even the Baltimore Police Commissioner saw the video and said, “I wish I had more parents who took charge of their kids tonight.” Good point. Though moms are great, dads are important too.
This part was particularly poignant.
“You will not be throwing rocks and stones at police officers! At some point, who’s to say that they don’t have to come and protect me from something? And they may not want to, knowing what you bring onto them.”
Dang. Sounds like she gets it. Hopefully it never comes to that.
This mom seems great, but again, it begs the question… where are the other moms and dads like this out there in Baltimore?
