A mother in Baltimore has become a rallying figure in the continued protests over the death of Freddie Gray. After spotting her son throwing rocks at police, this mom unleashes a blistering tirade of slaps and scolds, forcing her son to leave the protest.
The boy is presumably one of the many high school students who took part in protests on Monday after school let out. According to Baltimore City Police Commissioner Anthony Batts, “I think these were youths 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.”
The video above, from WMAR in Baltimore, shows one student who is likely grounded after taking part in the protests that have flared throughout the city.
