An angry mother didn’t take kindly to her son participating in the Baltimore protests and riots in response to the death of Freddie Gray. The angry Baltimore mom recognized her masked son throwing rocks at police on television and began chasing and beating the boy on live TV.
Toya Graham, who was captured on video smacking her teen-age son for participating in a riot in Baltimore, says she was “shocked” to see her son in the crowd. Graham explained her reaction to CBS News.
Although the mother was applauded for the action she took against her son Michael, it is important that he now receives proper counseling in order to better his decision making and life. Socially, it will be a long and hard road ahead for Michael because of being publicly humiliated. We want to make sure that we reinforce the discipline with positive support.
