Mom Smacks And Publicly Shames Her Teen Son For Rioting In Baltimore (Video)

Baltimore may be racked by violence in the wake of 25-year-old Freddie Gray's death, but that's not enough to convince one area mom.

A video published by local Baltimore station WMAR shows a loud mother striding into a crowd in search of her teenage son, before pulling him away from fellow protestors. She grabs his sweatshirt and slaps his face repeatedly.

The clip, uploaded April 27, shows one of the many protestors who inspired the city's mayor to announce a state of emergency yesterday evening after at least 15 police officers were injured in looting and riots.
