I saw this video this morning and wanted to share it. I saw a lot of videos of rioters in Baltimore but this one hit me the hardest. No pun intended. I grew up where you were physically disciplined for your bad actions. I credit this abuse with keeping me out of jail. A mom in Baltimore spotted her son on tv throwing rocks and went down there to put a stop to his actions. Log on to Facebook to see the video courtesy of ABC 7 Eyewitness News. Not on Facebook?

Stopping violence with violence? Either way, I think the mother did the right thing. Sometimes you have to have some sense knocked into you. She probably kept him from a jail stay. Good parenting? You decide.
