    Adrian Peterson was suspended from the NFL for a year for that kind of behavior.

    I applaud her for intervening, but before we claim her as "Mom of the Year", let's look at six kids with multiple men and no husband. THAT is why your son is out with hooligan's, Ms. Mike Tyson.

    This mom is a hero to the nation for slapping around her son and shouting profanities at him. Has anyone asked why this kid was out participating in this lawlessness to begin with and what role that sort of parenting played in his own values and behavior?

    I am NOT saying this mom did not have some justification for getting steamed and doing this. People do strange things when strange circumstances rear their ugly head and pulling your kid out of a riot sounds like a strange circumstance.

    The neighborhood has influence, too, and maybe she's countering it the best she can. Not literally everything comes from parents and/or home.

    Why are there so many single mothers in these communities? What can be done to keep fathers committed to the families they have helped to create? This is one of the big issues that can't be ignored.
    Having a prison record makes it almost impossible for black men to get legitimate jobs so they can support their families and that's in a good economy. So perhaps demilitarizing the police and not putting them in prison for non violent crimes would help.

    she's not some shining example of a good parent, people

    she's a good example of a parent reacting badly to the fruits of bad parenting.

    Stupidity is to think it isn't happening anyway, particularly when the evidence is so clear that it is. Birth control is better than unplanned pregnancies anyday. And costs waaaaay less to the woman, the community, and the country.
