Most of the news that’s been coming out of Baltimore has been bad news. The unnecessary death of Freddie Grey, rioting, looting, assaulting police officers. All of it sucks. But the one good piece of news to come out of Baltimore yesterday is Turtelboy’s candidate for mother of the year. Most of you have probably seen this video by now because it’s been all over the news, but obviously we need to talk about this:
God bless you angry Mom. You’re way better at parenting than Namond Brice’s Mom!! Kids do dumb things. We all know that. Especially boys. I was kind of hoping Turtleboy Jr. would be a girl when he was born because boys are walking death machines. At least 90% of adult males have been in a situation from their younger years in which they probably should’ve died. Because that’s what teenage boys do – make stupid, reckless decisions. Like joining a mob.
Look, one of the biggest problems here that the hippies will deny, is a lack of parenting. We’re raising a generation of kids who apparently think it’s OK to violate our laws and cause mayhem. It was refreshing to watch this Mom go all old school on her dooshnozzle son. Because she loves him, and she knows that he’s putting himself in danger by being out there.
Yet I don’t hear anyone ever blaming the parents of Michael Brown or Freddie Grey, for raising young men who think it’s OK to attack police officers and flagrantly commit crimes. The protester crowd is only looking at the net result – a dead African-American male – instead of addressing the root causes of this.
These young men aren’t dying because of racism, they’re dying because they apparently think breaking the laws is a birthright that comes with no consequences. And instead of their parents laying the smackdown like Momma Baltimore – they’re blaming the police, teachers, and everyone else besides themselves.
Just like everyone else, I’m sick of rogue police officers not doing their job properly and giving these people ammunition to riot. If the procedure was to buckle Freddie Grey into his seat in the police van, then that’s what should’ve happened. You’re paid to be professional, and you need to act like it.
But then again I am not a Baltimore police officer. And quite frankly, from what I’ve seen in the past 48 hours, I don’t think it’s fair for anyone to put themselves in the shoes of the Baltimore PD, because NONE of us has a job comparable to what they do.
Have you seen what they’re dealing with? People are literally throwing burning barrels full of trash at the police. That fire at CVS looked like Andre Rison’s home after he cheated on Left Eye. People in the crowd were essentially anonymous. Any of them could’ve tried to be a hero and shoot a cop. None of us knows what it’s like to deal with that type of stress on a daily basis.
We’ve seen people smashing and burning police cars and attacking civilians, including this woman in a wheel chair:
Yet I’m watching politicians on TV preface every statement about this with, “people are angry, people are upset.” Newsflash – I don’t give a fuck if you’re upset or not. This is America. We have due process here. This is not the wild west. This doesn’t help you win any support from anyone. It only marginalizes people who would be inclined to support…..whatever it is you’re trying to do.
The bottom line is we need less enablers and more angry Baltimore Moms.
