SHOCKING: Americans Advocate For Child Abuse After Video Shows Mother Abusing Son In Baltimore Protest


The brutal killing of Freddie Gray by a police officer in Baltimore is revealing interesting findings in American society. Some say this is hypocrisy, others call it double standards. Whatever it is, it is not right for a country that prides itself as ‘the leader of the free world’ and highly civilized to be engaging and glorifying acts that are considered to be for primitive societies of the past.

By now, we have all seen the viral video in which a mother is seen slapping and beating her son for taking part in the Baltimore protest to demand for justice for Freddie Gray. The woman who committed this gross abuse against the 16 year-old boy was later identified as Toya Graham.

Since the incident, a lot has been said about it on mainstream and social media. Toya has been dubbed ‘mom of the year’ by many on social media and publications like the New York Post displayed her image on the front page with the headline, “Forget the National Guard… Send in the Moms.”

On the popular morning show on Microsoft and the National Broadcasting Company (MSNBC), ‘Morning Joe,’ two high profile people in America sat comfortably in their chairs and advocated for child abuse, shamelessly.

The host of the show, former Congressman Joe Scarborough, said, “Baltimore police officers asking parents to actually step in and try to do something to help out yesterday to bring the city under control during the riots… and one mother listened. She was captured on video discipline her son. Now, how many parents can relate to that? Doing what any good, strong mother would do. God bless her for doing that.” Yes. You heard him. Those were the exact words that came out of his mouth. This is somebody who has been in Congress, advocating child abuse and rationalizing it with discipline.

A video played on the show, which was a press conference by the Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts, saw him not calling for calm, rather heaping praises on Toya’s gross abuse against her son, who only wants justice to prevail by taking part in the protest.

“You have 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. I wish I had more parents that took charge of the kids out there tonight,” he said, without even thinking twice.

It looks like Americans in general are also praising the beating of the teenager with the hashtag #MomOfTheYear, which is trending near the top of Facebook’s most popular topics.

Meanwhile, under Title 3, Subtitle-6, Section 3-601 of Maryland law, the violent mother’s actions constitute second-degree child abuse:

(d)  Second-degree child abuse:

(1) (i) A parent or other person who has permanent or temporary care or custody or responsibility for the supervision of a minor may not cause abuse to the minor.

According to the law, if the police observed a parent behaving like this in any other circumstance, the child would be taken from them by CPS and the parent would be charged with child abuse.

That did not happened in this case. Rather, the actions were glorified and labeled as ‘discipline.’ Independent observers are asking, does the law not matter when police are being protested, or is it ethical to call for non-violence and then advocate for violence when it is convenient? It’s no wonder then that if somebody is fighting in America’s interest, the person is a ‘freedom fighter,’ but if it is against, the person is a ‘terrorist.’ That is America for you… that is the American hypocrisy.

  1. That woman was right to punish her son! Child abuse is a very touchy subject because people can keep their noses out of other peoples business. Those riots are ridiculous and its about time parents stop listening to others about how they can and should raise their children! Because you dont know what measures were taken before that step you should butt the hell out. The next generation is a bunch of pussies and its all because of people spreadj g lies that discipline is abuse!

    • You’re the pussy here. Advocating any kind of abuse is fucking disgusting. Can’t rationally explain to your kid that he did something wrong? Well then might as well beat the shit out of him. Fuck you pussy.

      • Wow, and your acting so mature yourself! This kid was not injured at all and has not suffered any damage. I would have done the same thing if it had been my 16 yr old son! What would have happened to him had he stayed and continued to riot, would have been much worse. I swear I can not stand people with the only intent is to make others “pay” for stuff that is trivial, just because they have no life and strive on drama. I do not feel, given the situation, that this mother was out of place at all. Again, her son was not “hurt” and understood why his mom was kicking his butt. And she had already told him it was wrong, yet he still went down and was throwing rocks and bricks at police officers. So Jacob, your saying it was ok he did this?? The police would have done much worse to this kid and possibly tazed him and maybe even shot him…….but that’s OK right? Your a hipoctate!

      • Get a grip. Talk him out of it? Yeah because that worked the first time when she told him not to go out in the first place. I will concede the fact that if the child was raised properly and disciplined, he would have heeded his mother’s warnings in the first place. But, obviously this kid doesn’t respond to verbal cues and needed his ass whooped. There are some kids out there that can go a lifetime without being so much as swatted, and turn out fine. But, some kids require physical intervention lol.

  2. Fuck-tarded author doesn’t even include a definition of abuse.

    “Abuse is the improper usage or treatment of an entity, often to unfairly or improperly gain benefit. Abuse can come in many forms, such as: physical or verbal maltreatment, injury, assault, violation, rape, unjust practices; crimes, or other types of aggression.” [1]

    She did not cause injury, she did not rape him, she did not put him down and call him worthless. She slapped her son with an open hand simultaneously silently telling him that he is better than that, the opposite of abuse. Abuse would have been neglecting him by letting him go on acting like an idiot.

    To the author, just cuz your mommy or daddy say something that you don’t like, or punish you for being a spoiled fatty, that is not abuse. Abuse is letting you write stupid shit like this thinking that you are above reality, it is abuse by neglect.


  3. This woman stepped up! As a mother I would of done the exact same thing if I saw my 16 year old son rioting!! How dare anyone say she’s abusing him. She’s disciplining him for acting stupid. How many lives have been lost due to rioting? She was making sure her son doesn’t end up dead and the cause of more riots! Abuse my ass!!

  4. F*ck the hypocrisy! This mother did right by taking her son off the streets & smacking his dumb ass. I am a parent of 2 teens myself & I sure would have done the same! Take me to jail for preventing my son/daughter from taking part in actual violent acts? That’s what the hell is wrong with this country today… too many parents can’t even punish their child when they are doing wrong or else CPS steps in. It’s straight up bullshit. If the older generations were brought up that way & the majority of them turned out just fine, why are we not allowed to continue with the same form of punishment when our children do wrong? A good ol’ whooping to the ass sure put my ass in check when I was growing up… but now it would be called abuse. As long as you aren’t beating the crap out of your child & causing them extreme physical harm, then it’s not abuse. I will post this scripture from the Bible b/c it rings true: Proverbs 23:13-14
    Do not withhold discipline from a child;
    if you punish them with the rod, they will not die.
    Punish them with the rod
    and save them from death.

  5. This is ridiculous, that is just good parenting. I’m 54 years old and when I was an unruly child, I got an ass whipping. Not to any degree of child abuse but a good ass whipping none the less and I deserved every one of them. Each one became a good lesson and as I grew older believe me they became few and far between until there were none and I learned how important it was to have respect for everything and everyone. This country lacks good discipline and the younger generation is proving to show nothing but disrespect for everything.

  6. Good, she should have hit that boy harder. Good old fashioned discipline to take a young thug in training off the streets. The author of this article represents everything wrong with America. Hyper sensitive citizens that adopt the hands off, turn the other cheek mentality is exactly why we have so many youths running around unchecked and children killing themselves over bullying. Time to get tough, America. Stop handing out 14th place ribbons. Instead try disciplining your children and demanding performance from them.

  7. America needs this. Stop handing out 14th place ribbons and start disciplining your damn unruly, disrespectful children.I suppose the author of this article would feel better if the police shot that kid with a rubber bullet or a cs canister instead of having his mother whoop his little ass and send home uninjured. Unbelievable the mindset of you Amanda Flavio. You’re everything that is wrong with this great country.

  8. I hope I missunderstood, but don’t you agree that mother behaviour? I mean, your son is in the street destroying others propierties, what do you have to do? Go there and talk him calmly? I don’t think so…
    If every mother did that, there would be less riot problems.

  9. Thank god someone finally pointed this out. It makes me so sad not to see one comment either here nor in Facebook in support of this post. Anonymous: Thank you. You are dead on. The support and glorification of this child-abuse is sick and disturbing.

    Mom of the Year? Why the hell was the kid out there in a violent protest in the first place? I have a few ideas… maybe… influence from his obviously violent mother??? We need to stop blaming the children and look at the parents. If anything that kid was standing up for what he believed in.

    I am so sick of parents using the excuse that because they were beaten as kids that they should be able to beat their children. I hear it all the time “I was hit and I turned out fine”… Hardly, you turned out to be a child abuser, and I have yet to see an honestly successful and together person say this.

    Reminds me of a girl I knew who worked at McDonald’s, she was working at McDonald’s at the age of 23, overweight, smoker, and was pregnant and about to be a single mom… She was smoking while she was pregnant, and if anyone told her that was bad, she would reply “My Mom smoked when she was pregnant with me, and I turned out fine!” Fine, really? Single overweight smoking mother working at McDonald’s with no school at an age where she should have a college degree??? And you call that fine? Most people who think they “turned out okay” are simply delusional.

    • You are a hypocrite too. Your so quick to damn this mom for disciplining her son, but your going to say it’s ok for the police officers to beat, taze and possibly shoot him for throwing rocks and bricks at them. It’s people like you who claim abuse, then sit back and complain about unruly kids and why crime is so high. She didn’t harm her child but probably saved his life. I think she is awesome. More parents like her and we would have a lower crime rate! Not cause their scared of the police, cause that obviously doesn’t work.

  10. This is the most stupid post possible, the mom was right and the kid wasn’t peacefully protesting, he was rioting. Bless you #momoftheyear

  11. Allow me to offer a different view, one that IMO makes much better sense. It’s hypocrisy in the highest order to come rushing out of the crowd like a feral wildebeest, swinging your arms knocking a child upside his head, publicly humiliating him and showing the world that you have adopted a SLAVE MENTALITY. You see, a kid that age should be able to be spoken to rationally. A kid that age should be able to be spoken to like a human being. Unfortunately too many blacks continue to have a slave mentality. During slavery, black mothers used to beat their children upside their heads in order to save them from master who would likely beat them worse or beat them to death. Likewise, this mother beat her son upside the head rather than using her rational mind and connecting to his. She beat him to save him from the police who she feared would beat him to death. I know you probably don’t understand Slave Mentality. You see, Master’s kids didn’t get beat downs. They were spoken to like PEOPLE and not treated like animals. The real problem is people like YOU who care more about a broke window than they do a broken neck. I find that absolutely disgusting.

    Finally, I would like to share with you a quote from Martin Luther King which explains why this child engaged in such behavior for which his ignorant, slave mentality mother likely knows nothing about:

    Martin Luther King Jr. ‘s words and don’t get them twisted:

    I think America must see that riots do not develop out of thin air. Certain conditions continue to exist in our society which must be condemned as vigorously as we condemn riots. But in the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice, equality, and humanity. And so in a real sense our nation’s summers of riots are caused by our nation’s winters of delay. And as long as America postpones justice, we stand in the position of having these recurrences of violence and riots over and over again. Social justice and progress are the absolute guarantors of riot prevention

  12. Abuse??? Seriously!?!?!??! Fukn pistol whipping his ass would constitute abuse! A mother saving her child’s life and preventing him from being killed like a POS thug vs so-called b.s. abuse….at least he’s still breathing!
