Who Took Video of Baltimore Mom Beating Would-Be Rioter Son?

(CBS News) – Baltimore native Tommy Bourne happened to catch an angle of the infamous video of Toya Graham.

The image of Graham literally laying the smack down on her son and beating him away from joining rioters has been celebrated as a mother who did what she had to do to get her son off the streets.

“It was probably a life-saving thing for that kid, it probably saved a lot of grief,” said Bourne, who grew up in West Baltimore and says a lot of the looting took place near his childhood home.

Bourne was out on his lunch break. He saw a flash of yellow — that was Ms. Graham, standing out among the pack of young men in a canary yellow top — and he followed her as she scolded her son.
