BALTIMORE – A Baltimore mom took action when she realized her son was participating in violent protests Monday night after the funeral of Freddie Gray.

As you see in the video that's gone viral,  the mother was not about to let her son take part in these protests. She is caught on camera dragging him from the riot, and smacking him the entire way. You hear expletives, and her asking, "what is wrong with you?"

Her reaction is stirring up some debate, but Baltimore police are giving it their seal of approval.

"You had one mother who grabbed her child who had a hood on his head, and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed," Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said. "I wish I had more parents that took charge of their kids out there tonight."
