One of the most talked about events to come out of the Baltimore riots so far has been the mom who saw her son on TV and went down to where he was and smacked him around a little then got him out of the area.
After she was identified and had her opportunity to tell her side of the stroy she was quoted as saying, "That's my only son and at the end of the day I don't want him to be a Freddie Gray,".
When the video was shared around the world, a common caption or opinion was she should be seen as the "Mom of the Year."
Really? Mom of the year?
I think we all got a little notalgic over seeing her smack her kid a little bit but to call her the mom of the year is an incredible insult to every mom out there who wasn't worried about her son being on the from t lines of a riot hurling rocks at police becuase their children didn't put themselves in harms way.
