Opinion: Baltimore mother acting on instinct

Thanks to some posters above I had assault confused with battery.

Substitute my references to assault with battery.

I stand corrected.

Doesn't change the fact that it was a criminal act.

Rebecca,

You might have a point there. Either way, it's a crime. It perpetuates the very cycle of violence we need to be stopping.

None of us know how he feels for sure.....

But one thing I know when I see it is assault.

Brock is right. She struck him out of anger. It's criminal.

How do you know that her son knows she loves him? Victims of violent households have a way of being forced to accept this type of "love" through years of abuse. How do you know this isn't the case?

You know nothing john snow!

Ummmm...are you kidding me? That was assault. She should be arrested.

I understand the sentiment but she was trying to teach her son a lesson about not participating in the riots and potentially committing assault himself in the course of the riot with guess what......assault.

The whole scene was a contradiction in the very lesson she was trying to teach.

Absolutely unacceptable. Imagine a husband or wife acting out the same action to teach the same lesson....guess what?.... someone's going to jail.

Assault is assault. Plain and simple.

Kansas Senate, House override Brownback's veto of rules for firms like Uber

Given that possessing a firearm is a right I can see how that comparison doesn't apply. I think a better example would be that home inspectors in Kansas don't have any regulations at all.

I wonder who voted in favor of that legislation but voted to override the recent Brownback veto.

I had fully planned to take UBER downtown on Saturday for a night out. Cars are cleaner. The drivers are cleaner. The ride is cheaper. I get home without having to wait for an hour for a taxi.

Anyone want to give me a lift home this Saturday at 2:00 AM?

New Kansas rules would limit spending of welfare benefits

I think an example of basic human decency is to take the assistance (that I help provide) but don't buy a tattoo with it.

Is that so unreasonable?

Buy the ingredients, its cheaper and more rewarding.

If you can't afford the 2.50 out of your own pocket then you probably should save it for other things.

I realize the pool isn't a luxury but it isn't a necessity.

I'm not helping to arrange anything other than making a smart decision with your money...not only for those on assistance but those with any budget.
