A Baltimore woman took action when she saw her son hanging out with violent demonstrators Monday.

 

The woman, identified by ABC affiliate WMAR as the boy's mother, was watching television when she saw her son throwing rocks at police, the station reported.

"Are you kidding me?" she's heard saying. The station did not identify her by name.

An individual mother-and-child incident like this one is the best way to get these violent groups to listen, according to ABC News contributor and former FBI agent Steve Gomez.

 

"If you get them separated, and you get their family member, someone they respect, to lay into them," he said. "I don't think that they're going to listen to anybody other than their parents or someone in their family that they respect."

Fifteen officers were injured Monday when violent groups threw bricks, rocks and other objects at police.

 

About 75 to 100 school-age children were involved in the violence, police said, as they urged parents to bring their children home:

 

At a news conference Monday, Police Commissioner Anthony Batts referenced one mother who grabbed her son and smacked him on the head, although it is unclear whether this is the same mother caught on video.

"I wish I had more parents that took charge of their kids out there tonight," Batts said.

Baltimore City Public Schools are closed today in the wake of the violence.

A citywide curfew will be in effect from 10 p.m. today until 5 a.m. Wednesday. The 10 p.m. curfews will last for one week, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said, and could be extended as necessary.

 

A 9 p.m. curfew is already in effect for children 14 and younger.

Good! Unfortunately, if all the mothers, friends and relatives had taken the same action, the criminal street coons would have never been able to distract from the peaceful protesters. The community efforts to get transparency and answers of the unwarranted death of this young man has been undermined by the opportunistic thug coons. How sad and disappointing it is for the law abiding people and the black female mayor....

Oh, boy!!

 

                       street coonery

                       thug coons

                       criminal street coons

 

Xeon's back in da house!!!

 

Black people, don't protest.  Get your education, stop burning down shit, stop dancing in the street and stop complaining.  The way you're acting now, Ole Massa's never going to hire you to a high paying job.  If you can not walk his walk and talk his talk, you're never going to make his money.  Run, don't walk, to the nearest education facility possible and do it NOW!!!!!  Caucasians are watching you (every second of your lives). You might be poor as a church mouse, just get your best "smart" on and make sure it's not criminal. Prayers to you all!!

“Black people, don't protest.”

 

No. You have every right to protest if you feel a grievance.

 

“Get your education, stop burning down shit, stop dancing in the street and stop complaining.”

 

Agreed! Getting a good education is the antidote to the majority of the American Negroes problems. The facts support this. Sadly and strangely -many do not seem to accept nor understand this….

 

“The way you're acting now, Ole Massa's never going to hire you to a high paying job.”

 

That is not true. If you have the right degree or certification –why wouldn’t you get a job? People do it e every single day….

 

“If you cannot walk his walk and talk his talk, you're never going to make his money.  Run, don't walk, to the nearest education facility possible and do it NOW!!!!!”

 

True…true. If you want that high five or six figure job –ya gotta have the right paper. Again –people do it every day!

 

“Caucasians are watching you (every second of your lives).”

 

Ha! Ha! Ha! It’s not only white people but the whole world is watching Negroes Sweetie. Don’t delude yourself. And what they see is not flattering….TRUST ME!

 

“You might be poor as a church mouse, just get your best "smart" on and make sure it's not criminal. Prayers to you all.”

 

Point well made! I totally agree!

Y'all middle aged-Ness is showing!

No this young man should not be throwing rocks but neither should be be beaten on worldwide television for feeling the angst of being a potential target of police violence and wanting to participate in a political movement!

We cannot expect that a young man to sit on his thumbs behind his mother's skirts while people who look exactly like him are served up on morgue slabs everyday because some cop thought his cellphone was a weapon or he "looked suspicious"

The civil rights movement and the Black Power movement was mostly the energy of kids! MLK and Malcolm X were 37 when they died and they had been active in their respective movements for at least a decade and were elder statesmen of their movements in their THIRTIES!

Young people are the heart of every movement!

So she decided to prevent her son from expressing himself politically because she was afraid of him dying...

 

Well, it's too late because if you are Black and in the Americas - you are already dead.

 

Spend most your "life" being oppressed and then repressing your emotions to get by day to day. You probably mad or depressed most of the time. You know shit ain't right but you do nothing to fix it and you rather blame yourself for things you have absolutely no control over.

 

Especially if you are young because the generation before you decided to eat shit sandwiches because at least when the White man took a shit on a piece of bread and put the other piece of bread on top of it and mashed it together and put it on a plate, the generation before you got to sit down at the White man's table and eat shit while the White man ate steak. 

 

And eating shit in while sitting next to a White person, is eating steak to Black people. For Black people, eating steak while sitting next to another Black person is eating shit.

 

The young brother unfortunately didn't get the experience of being alive. That was the only moment he will get in his entire life because he is gonna spend the rest of his life disciplining himself to put up with bullshit from Whites if he wants to make it to age 40, working for White people with a nice house to show for it and a family.And where he come from, he could be a success story. Hell might even end up a moderate Democrat like Obama.

 

Too bad his mother castrated him on TV because she feared he'll end up like Freddie Gray, that type of shit keeps us back from living full lives.

 

In Baltimore, he might end up like Freddie Gray regardless.

Being black in America one can end up like Freddie Gray regardless.  The black sons are murdering black sons and the white man is murdering black sons.  The white man came here slaughtering; the black man learned to murder very well. The white man murders others; the black man kill his brother. America has her own BOKO HARAM and always has.

His mother did the right thing, she went and got her son before he wound up with a long criminal record or tortured and murdered like Freddie Gray.

 

We don't have to sacrifice our children or allow our children to sacrifice themselves to express outrage/anger over a given situation or to protest and demonstrate against the horror show called "American Police and Black People".

 

And our children don't have to turn into thieves and arsonists, destroying property/businesses of people who were not responsible for Freddie Gray's torture and murder, just to make a point or "express himself".

 

This mother was not "castrating" her son, this mother was doing what real mothers instinctively do, which protecting her child, saving her child, getting her child out of harms way.

 

And no African Americans are "eating shit sandwiches" because they know that there is a better way to protest and demonstrate against the Police Terrorism of Black people and Black communities,without becoming a thief, or arsonist, or criminal, or murderer yourself or without your minor child becoming one.

 

What good can you do the "cause" if you're in prison or dead?

I totally agree with you, I think she did not have to beat him like that but what I appreciated about that young man was he took it and did not push back his mother but she is no hero. But I can also understand why she reacted that way but she could have handled that in a much better way,

 

People who beat their kids loved it. biased White people really really LOVED it.

I'd take a mother beat down over a white man beat down/bullet any day. Wish mine was here. Young home boy was embarrassed enough to stay out the streets following his buddies, it appears.  Handsome fella, nice too, it seemed.  Loves his mother; saw him and his mother on The View today.  

 

Raven's hair looked like a delicious frosting on a cake. Seems like she's trying to find permanence there. Gonna be there tomorrow. I'm not fond of ya Raven, but I'm just one out of a couple million, expressing an observation, I guess. Yuck!!!!

Nothing the mother does will prevent him from being a Freddie Gray. That's that old time religion. That's that respectability politics.

Freddie Gray is any one of us going about our business when a cop decides we "look suspicious".

The fact that driving while black exists should give us a clue that we are suspect no matter how nice, polite, educated or middle class we are. The 70 yr old vet using a golf club as a cane in Washington? Chris Rock being stopped repeatedly in his vehicle? Rakeia Boyd shot in a crowd of people by an officer who claimed to be afraid? The countless stories now of 60+ year old black men being released from prison after 30 years on a wrongful conviction?  The videos of average, regular black people being tased to death? The little girl in Detroit killed while sleeping on the couch with her granny? The little Asian baby badly disfigured by police on a no knock warrant throwing a flash bombs?

Would they have escaped police unharmed if only they were more disciplined?

I guess I don't understand what is meant when people say they don't want a kid to be another Freddie Gray?

  Come on yall...let's be CLEAR...this young man was NOT beaten.  His mom gave him a few slaps aside his head and at one while he pushed her hand away and ran from her.  Surely yall can TELL the difference between love taps[she was trying to save  her son not thinking about being in or on the media].

 

This is a beat down:

Did he look like that?  Hell no.  

 

This is another one.

So surely yall can tell between a smack and a beatin....right?  Let's not get carried away.  We know some black people whip their kids.  And this wasn't even a whippin.  So stop trying to pretend that black peopkle don't hit their kids....cuz they DO!!!!  I know for me?  My parents whipped my butt when I was a kid.  I whipped my kids when they were little.  And trust and believe.  They grew up to be better behaved than some of these self-entitled thugs who don't believe in going to school and doing the right thing in life.  So please....save all this bougie stuff [not referring to you Sista Nspirit] for folks who believe this hype.  Cuz we know what we in the black community do with our kids to make them mind.  This is NOT an Ozzie and Harriet profile.... this is the black community.  And it doesn't MEAN that we beat our kids...it's called corporate punishment.  Something I believe WORKS and also something I believe keep our children from harm[called social boundaries].  But!
