Toya Graham, the mother of her 16-year-old son, Michael Graham rose from fame with a viral video of her smacking her son for throwing rocks at police and violating the polices cars.
The mother said, “He gave me eye contact. And, at that point, not even thinking about cameras or anything like that — that’s my only son,” she told CBS in an interview. “And at the end of the day, I don’t want him to be a Freddie Gray.”
Freddie Gray, who was a 25-year-old who was arrested by police officers and while being transported in a police van, he died from a spinal injury, from the police being to aggressive.
Graham hopes that her son understands the seriousness of what is going on and hopes he never does that again.
