Some media and officials have deemed her "Mother of the year" for culling her son out of the riot.
As a sidelight, was she a MOM who gave too little too late, and not exactly using good parental skills to reach a modern teen boy? Did he LEARN or was he too embarrassed to even be listening? Is trashing his masculinity effective or does he really need a different. male oriented lesson? Where is that boy's dad? Is this post-puberty boy already broken?
Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts praised her during a news conference Monday night.
"You had a mother who grabbed their child who had a hood on his head and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed," Batts said.
"I wish I had more parents who took charge of their kids tonight. I think these were youth coming out of the high school and they thought it was cute to throw cinder blocks at the police department and address it that way," he added.
