Mom Sets #BaltimoreRiots Son Straight

Mom Sets #BaltimoreRiots Son Straight

We need more Moms like this.

I know this has made the rounds quite a bit, but it’s still worth playing.

Kind of speaks for itself, but here’s the story:

This Baltimore mom saw her son throwing rocks at police on television.

That didn’t sit well with her.

The video shows the mother repeatedly striking her boy, chasing him as he tries to walk away.

Mom may have humiliated her son on national TV. And that may be the best thing that ever happened to him.

I don’t know the son’s age, but would anyone be surprised that, if he’s under 18, child services will come down hard on MOM?

Here’s the video:

Good for her, of course but…where’s the dad?

Now, perhaps this isn’t a single mother…but odds are it is, and odds are, not having a father in the house meant this thug didn’t learn how to be a man.

I sure hope this is not a one-off for Mom, and that she is not screwed with by CPS.

Sadly, I fear the odds are she’ll be burying this kid or visiting him behind plexiglass in just a few years.

I hope not. I hope he follows the Ben Carson model.

I love how to start with he’s got his face and head covered . . . didn’t hide him from his mom, though. A mom always knows.

Let’s hope she doesn’t get any trouble from this, especially now that we apparently can’t use GoFundMe for conservative causes.

Leave out everything else, politics, racial connotations, etc, and focus on the interaction between a mother and a son. Did you notice this almost-man who just seconds before was ready to kill somebody with a well-placed stone to the occipital bone? Did you notice how he cowers in fear of her mother? He could have beaten her into a pulp if physical strength was all it took.

But that mother struggled for what, 16, 17, 18 years? to rise a good kid against overwhelming odds. If you are looking for a way to fix this awful problem we find ourselves in in this country you might look at her, and find ways to help her and others like her.

    The way to help her is to support fatherhood. Instead of incentivizing disposable males, we need to be supporting a culture which expects men and women, together, to raise their children.

      While I agree with you, I would also point out as someone raised by a single mother, that sometimes the outcome is the opposite of what you would expect. My mother raised me to be what she thought a good man should be, polite, respectful, compassionate and gentlemanly, however underlying those things are strength, honor, the will to never let anyone run over me, work ethic, and reverence to God.

      So it really depends more on the parent.

      P.S. Thanks Mom.

        I logged in just to give you a thumbs up! I pray for something positive to come from all of this…

        No doubt, there are some single mothers who manage to pull it off, and congratulations to them (including your mother).

        But on an institutional level, the danger is that by normalizing single parenthood, and making it something socially acceptable, rather than something that while sometimes necessary, is generally regrettable (say, like war), we open the gates to pain and suffering. Choosing single parenthood as an elective state, rather than resigning oneself to single parenthood only after trying to avoid it by all possible measures, is frankly, a selfish choice.

        I know that when I was a single parent, one of my most important goals was to find a partner who would help make my family whole. I might be all for gay marriage, and abortion, and all kinds of typically left-wing social issues, but when it comes right down to it, social conservatives are *right* about attaching stigma to single parenthood, and I think that if I hadn’t been ashamed of being a single parent, I might not have worked so hard to remediate it, and my son would’ve had a harder time for it (and thank you eharmony for helping arrange my marriage – my ability to choose good partners on my own was incredibly poor).

    “The self-forgetting virtue is an unnatural alienation form one’s own essence, which is thus deprived of development. It is a sin to deliberately alienate the other from his self by means of ones’s own virtuousness, for example through saddling oneself with his burden. This sin rebounds on us.”

    She’s helping herself and her son – as it should be. I was a single mother for many years, got no financial help from anyone other than some babysitting once in a while. I worked my way up from receptionist to echo tech during my 40 years in the same company, working many jobs along the way that I hated. It can be done. Oh, and then I took in my brothers kids as babies and raised them, too, when my own kids were almost grown. We need to quit patronizing people, acting like they can’t do it themselves. Of course they can if they are able bodied and finished high school.

Shame Grey’s family wasn’t like that. 25 years old and 18 arrests.

Many for drug dealing.

Give a pignant new meaning to the song “Freddy’s Dead”.

Dude, I told you to wear the Guy Fawkes mask.

LukeHandCool (who, when he was in middle school, would have his mother drop him off a couple blocks from school because it was so uncool to be seen with your mom, and who wonders how this rebel must feel having this played out in front of all his fellow revolutionaries … oh, dude, wear the mask next time)

Child services won’t dare touch this Mom I bet, since they can imagine the outrage they’d face.

There is some question as to how this powerful Mom let her son get to this point. Seems like the perfect icon of Mom, versus Hillary’s village, raising her child.

I’m very proud of that Mom. I don’t know her and I’ve never met her, but I couldn’t be more proud of, and for, her if she were my own flesh and blood. Maybe that young man will have a future now.

Perhaps an attorney will talk the kid into abuse charges.

    Sad but true. Why the down votes I wonder? Nothing would surprise me anymore.

      Henry Hawkins in reply to Helen. | April 28, 2015 at 8:36 pm

      Probably thought I was snarking on all lawyers. I wasn’t at all, but there’s always that lawyer who’ll dredge ditches for a lawsuit. Gloria Allred, for one. Now, my field, psychology, every practitioner an angel….

For a while, in my misspent youth, I was part of a program at a jail in a fairly large Northwest city designed to reduce overcrowding. This program kicked in on weekends and a team of us would evaluate new bookings to see if we could release them on their personal recognizance (PR) to keep the jail from getting too full.

Along with the charges and criminal history we would often call parents and talk to them to get an idea if this person was likely to show up in court when required. I was amazed at the answers I got from so many parents (usually single mothers) when I would call and identify myself as a deputy at the jail and had her son in custody. Some would basically just say, “Let him rot” and some would respond like I would assume this mom would.

However, in this case, It would probably have been better to keep this kid in custody than release him to his mom. After 10 min I am sure this kids butt would be blacker and blue but he would probably be a lot better off for it in the long run.

If President Obama had a son…….well, you know the rest.

Baltimore Police Cite Presence of Minors in Defending Response to Unrest Addressing questions about the police’s tempered response to unrest on Monday in Baltimore, a police spokesman said Tuesday that officers took a restrained approach early on because most of the people involved seemed to be minors.

A social media campaign that appeared to be goading Baltimore residents into rioting on Monday afternoon was timed to 3 p.m., about when schools were being dismissed, Capt. J. Eric Kowalczyk of the Baltimore Police Department said Tuesday during a news conference.

“When we deployed our officers yesterday, we were deploying for a high school event,” Captain Kowalczyk told reporters. “I don’t think there’s anyone that would expect us to deploy with automatic weapons and armored vehicles for 13- 14- and 15-year-olds.”

But as the afternoon wore on and turned to evening, adults took over, he said. Of more than 200 people arrested, only 34 were juveniles.

It’s been reported that many social media accounts that were used in connection with the Ferguson riots were used here.

There’s a conspiracy here.

And the purpose to reduce the risks to illegal businesses, and the risk to many of the customers of illegal businesses of getting arrested because of crimes that are necessary for them to pay for what they are buying.

All this about police and race just confuses people.

These are the folks that should be leading Baltimore. They stood up and were counted on when needed.
Toss that idiot mayor and elect these folks.

Nobody is trying to cover up what hapepned to Freddie Grey – nobody ever, except maybe for some of the people directly involved, was trying to cover up what happened to Freddie Grey, which, whatever it was, was almost certainly not a deliberate first degree murder, but there’s alot of people who want to cover up what’s causing these riots.

Which are highly planned and controlled, because nobody got killed so far.

Baltimore had no problem locking down Camden Yards. They should have locked down the high schools and told the parents to come get their children. No child released without a parent/guardian to pick them up.
The Mayor needs to RESIGN NOW

Baltimore won’t be a location chosen for conventions, ahead.

This mom did her job! Too bad others (who saw this kids rioting on TV) did not go out and do the same.

Yes, we live in a world where everyone has a cell phone camera!

Won’t help them much, ahead, when they want to out out shopping, and the CVS store (if we’re lucky) … has the brains not to rebuild. Bet that store was merely marginal, in terms of profits, before the riots took it out.

Henry Hawkins | April 28, 2015 at 8:39 pm

Baltimore gets what Baltimore votes for. Same as USA.

“We need more moms like this”

The majority of Baltimore youth have not participated in this at all. We need moms like those.
