In what may be the best video to come out of the Baltimore riots Monday, a young would-be rioter got a beating at the hands of a woman, presumed by many on the Internet to be his mother.
While BPR hasn’t identified the pair as mother and son, the footage conjured up images all over social media that caused her to be dubbed “Mom of the year.”
Cameras were running as the woman confronted the young man, whom she recognized despite the fact that he was dressed in all black with his face covered by a mask.
The woman berated and hits the youngster as she took him away from the rioting.
WARNING: Strong Language.
