When mothers are in action, there is not much we can do, can we? No matter how strong, grown-up or cool you think you are, when mumma says something, we do it, or else face the consequences as this young boy participating in Baltimore riots did.
In the video, the boy is seen throwing stones at the police when his mother recognises him, drags him out of the crowd and smacks him repeatedly while he walks away.
Originally uploaded by ABC 2 News on their YouTube channel, this video has already received over 1.5 million views.
The violent riots in Baltimore in US were provoked after 25-year-old Freddie Gray died in police custody. At several places, protesters squared off with the police as the city sank into chaos. The Gray family said that they did not want this movement to be scarred by violence.
