Baltimore Mom Caught Smacking Son Draws Praise

Posted:

(CBS)- The video has been widely circulated as people look for answers to the violence, and it even drew the attention of Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts.

"I wish I had more parents who took charge of their kids tonight," he said.

"These are Baltimore youthful residents, a number of them came right out of the local high schools there on the other side of Mondawmin and started engaging in this," said Batts. "I think these were youth 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."

Fifteen police officers were injured, six seriously, in the violence. One officer was knocked unconscious by the blows from flying debris, and others were said to have suffered broken bones.
