Texas Mom Explains Why She Spanked Son in Traffic for Taking Her BMW; America Cheers

In a now-viral video, a Texas mom was captured chasing down her teen son and spanking him with a belt in traffic after he took off in her BMW with a friend.

That mother, Liza Martinez, is now breaking her silence and explaining why she took such drastic measures.

“It’s my son’s well being, his livelihood, his best friend’s well being, not to mention all of the people on the roadways,” she told ABC7.

Another parent had informed her that her son, Aaron, had gone to a friends house to pick him up. She asked her daughter, Liza Campero, to check to see if her car was there.

It wasn’t.

“That’s when she told me to grab the belt, and I really just ran into the closet and grabbed the first belt I saw,” Campero recalled.

Before long, Martinez tracked down her son and screamed at him to pull over.

“I pulled right out into traffic next to him. He was in one lane, I was in the lane next to him. That’s when I yelled at him to pull over. Now,” she said.

“Give me the belt,” she’s heard saying in the video.

Martinez then got out of the car and proceeded to spank her 14-year-old son right in the middle of traffic.

Watch the video below:

She’s not sorry, either.

“I feel that I have a debt to society, and my debt to society is to make sure my children are productive, law-abiding citizens,” Martinez added.

      Way to go mom! In this age of liberal socialism anything goes it is refreshing to see a parent doing exactly what she did. The stupid kid could have killed himself, others then get away with a liberal warning. Please kid, you have to be more caring and sensitive toward others. You might have hurt them.

    You go Mom! I don’t blame her at all, unfortunately someone will probably turn her in to Child Services and the police and she may end up in jail!

    As a father of 4 boys, I didn’t use a belt, but the wife did. Ask the 2 oldest boys about a rodeo. This consisted of the boys going around in circles, with the wife in the middle with a belt..they passed her, she swung the belt..HI WHOA SILVER

    It’s a good thing for the kid it wasn’t me who had him stopped. No mercy for stupidity AND car theft. He wouldn’t have been able to walk for a week ! And from this point on anywhere he wanted to go, he could ride a bicycle, a skateboard or any other means but I wouldn’t take him in a car on a trip across the street. Think of all the lives he put at risk just being foolish ! After I whipped his ass really good I would have called the law and let them charge him. Then he’d have a record. That ought to just about do if for him not being able to get a drivers license until he is 21.

      All sounds good Eddie, except for the record part. The law enforcement records would cause undue problems for him in the future, such as getting a good job and might hinder his accomplishments in life in other ways as well. You might do as I did one time, take him to a police station and in private ask a policeman to give him a good talkin-to..a good scare. But don’t make the record official.

    Serves the boy right ! A good spanking never hurt anyone , only their feelings! Might teach him how to be a man instead of some of Boy floozies we have now !

    Great job Mom! I would have done the same thing. My 5 children are all grown now and only 1 ever got arrested. I didn’t bail him out of jail and he suffered the consequences of his actions. I always told them I would be their friend when they were grown, but as long as they lived in my house, I owned the air they breathed and they were to follow the rules. I heard the same tired refrain, “it’s not FAIR!” that everyone hears, I told them life isn’t fair and that they might as well learn that while they still lived at home. Fortunately, ALL 5 of my kids went on to be productive, professional, tax paying citizens.
    Don’t cut them any slack! It’s our responsibility to raise them right!

    In the state of FLORIDA, it is NOT illegal to spank your child. (you can’t beat the shit out of him but spanking is ok)

    If that little boys was my son he’d be grounded until
    He joined the military!

    The mother will probably get arrested for assault and battery against her kid, have him taken away by CPS instead of being applauded for disciplining the kid that she caught illegally driving her car, a potential deadly weapon, that he was not trained or licensed to use.

    • Ed Cumming

      I would dare CPS or anyone else to come after me or my child. Whenever those people feed, clothe, and house my child only then can they tell me how to raise them. If they tried to take my child I’d sue them all the way to the Supreme Court! I don’t believe in child abuse, but a good spanking to the behind never hurt a child. It might bruise their ego somewhat, but they learn to respect their parents and other authority figures. My Mom and Dad spanked me and my three siblings and it didn’t hurt us one bit. They loved us enough to teach us right from wrong, and to respect authority figures, as well as the law of the land. God bless this woman for her actions – hopefully this child has learned a very valuable – albeit painful – lesson!

    I am honestly surprised that someone, somewhere hasn’t shot off their mouth talking about child abuse! “Oh, poor little fellow! He’s had his sense of dignity and self-worth destroyed!” The idiot so-called Doctor Benjamin Spock spoke of this sort of discipline and how it would destroy a child’s sense of self-worth. Because of him we have generations of degenerate, delinquent young people without any respect for others or authority. On his deathbed he admitted that he was wrong. Gee, thanks! Leaving this earth while the rest of us have to put up with the spoiled little morons and their offspring–you’re getting the easy way out.. Kudos galore to this good, loving Mom who cared about her boy enough to give him a dose of tough love and a memorable lesson in life.

      Yep, you are right about what you said, but if the kid would have wrecked into someone & either hurt or killed them, these that want to talk smack, would be the first to say the parents are the blame!! I would do the same thing this Mom did, to save my child or someone else’s child from harm!! Good job, Mom, I support you!!

      Jake–You hit the nail right on he head!! Well done Sir! You got it right about Dr. Spock. He did go on TV and admit that he was wrong just before he died. Looks as if the ones who should have seen it did not. Shame!

      October 23, 2018 at 12:18 pm

      Thank you thank you thank you for your comments.
      My sister, who was very OUTSPOKEN, had the idiot Dr Benjamin Spock as a professor at CASE WESTERN RESERVE UNIVERSITY.
      She, being as outspoken as she was, told him what his theory would turn this world into. Of course it did no good, but she did not back down.
      And just look…..see how it has turned out?

    The government has had parents terrified of disciplining their own children for years now and what do we have? A bunch of crazed little hellions running amok and not worried because the parents will go to jail if they dare tell them NO. It’s not only time to take our country back, it’s time to take our children back from the claws of these morons.

    • Karen Mannelin

      October 20, 2018 at 5:00 pm

      Totally agree!!! When all this business started when my oldest was a teen, I too, knew what we’d be looking at down the road if I followed the government’s decree. We continued to discipline as before. No responsible parent in their right mind, is going to allow the gov’t to tell them how to raise their children or our children to tell us what they will or will not do. You don’t beat them, certainly, but if they deserve a spanking, loss of priveleages, time outs, whatever the parent deems necessary in appropriate recourse for improper or irresponsible from their children, it is the parent’s choice.

    great job Mom..God bless you… need more moms like her… too many kids these days get by with whatever they want to do…and it’s because of government interference as part of the problem… my friend’s son stole her car and she had him arrested… reported the car stolen and they picked him up and took him to jail.

    More people should spank their children. The world wouldn’t be in the shape it’s in with all this mob shit. Great job Mom!!!

  19. Donald B.Mc Donald

    October 20, 2018 at 6:25 am

    And that,s how we do it, I never had to use a belt but had no problem spanking them on the ass no matter where we were, act up and you are going to get it. In the car it did not matter who started it they were both going to get it. They were great kids and have become great parents. Discipline is part of loving your children, even if it hurts sometimes.

    I spanked my children and they grew up very respectable and good boys,now men.
    Parents need to control their children or they will be wishing they did.
    Love my boys and thank God every day for them.

    We need more moms and dads like this! Children are so spoiled anymore it isn’t funny and we’ve turned out a bunch of disrespectful kids that have no clue how to respond to authority. What do parents think will happen when their kids get a job and their boss tells them to do something? It’s time to take back control of our kids!

  25. Cindy

    October 20, 2018 at 2:47 pm

    That kid deserved it, he begged for it. Since this wasn’t his ‘first offense’, he obviously wasn’t going to get it any other way. Kids who do these things are pushing their limits and asking for boundaries to be defined. When we ignore it, or don’t give the proper punishment, they know they have no limits, and nothing is wrong. Take a look at a lot of these kids today, look at these snowflakes and antifa mongrels. This mom did the right thing. That kid could have killed somebody. Mom got it right!!!!

    Good for her. Exactly what I would have done. Too many moms afraid they will go to jail for “Child Abuse” Ok Take me, but he still would have got his rear busted.

    My Mad overcomes your stupidity. I have said to my kids. I would have done exactly the same thing, plus grounding him from driving for a year after he would be legally able to drive. An Equalizer is needed for a kid that big…and the belt was the equalizer, Mom’s can Cheat to win. Wonderful MOM! I love that you did what you KNEW was RIGHT. He will never forget this and probably never do this again…because next time would be worse. Nice to have Real Moms in the universe.

    He deserved it. Maybe with the belt laid on him he will learn the consequences of his actions. Better he learn it now and there than in prison later. You go Mom

    Well Done Mom!! Damn Dr. Spock and the other mind destroyers err doctors. Thru their existance they have caused more deaths than are countable! Don’t believe it? 1. Look at today’s kids. 2. As for deaths–check out their history. Dr. Spock in the 60s started the no punishment of kids as it would mess up their minds. Just before he died he went on tv and apoligized and said that he was wrong. Guess the law makers and “do-gooder moms” did not get the message. Well just another case of “we reap what we sow”, but damn it has sure ruined a lot of kids! (Yes, NOT all of em).

    • Kathleen Redman

      October 23, 2018 at 12:28 am

      True, and from what I have read, Dr. Spock’s own son committed suicide. When a child has nobody holding them to boundaries they are insecure and have no self worth. They don’t feel loved or cared for when they know they are miserably out of control and nobody cares to do anything to stop it, and thereby stop the consequences they bring upon themselves. When there is no child training there are rebellious idiots who think they can push their way on everybody. They are miserable and effective in destroying the lives of those around them.

    Way to mom about time parents take back control of their children no time outs no TV a swat on the rear will make them know you mean what you say I raised 4 law abiding children a spanking when needed, but they knew when I said something to listen. Lets take back our country starting with our young.

    Excellent! She’s a wonderful mom who has it together. This boy has a chance of straightening up his act, accomplishing in school and other activities and going to college. I’m sure he will do well in driver’s education as well. I don’t think he’ll be one of the boys who is hot-rodding in races down city streets as an older teen.

    It seems to me when the gov’t handcuffed parents ability to parent children think they do as they please. Government oversight stops at the curb. Parents are responsible for their children so let them parent free of restraints.

    She did the right thing. Her son could have killed others and harmed himself. I got spanked when I was a kid and deserved every single smack. My parents never beat me they spanked me and my brothers. We are all upstanding citizens and proud parents today. The younger generation today have no respect for adults, other kids, teachers, police, military or anyone else. They are not being taught respect because the parents are afraid they will be put in jail if they punish their children. When you have a car theif at 15, putting him in a chair in a corner doesn’t mean a thing, likely they will pick up that chair and beat you over the head with it.

    I don’t care how old the child is, I’d beat him until he couldn’t see straight! My Mother and Daddy disciplined me and my three siblings with the belt when the situation called for it, as did my wife and I with our children. None of us grew up with “serious psychological issues” as is claimed by the American Pediatric Association. What this boy did was totally irresponsible and highly dangerous. He could have killed or seriously injured himself or someone else. Children have to learn respect and that crap of “time out” and “go to your room” just doesn’t cut it sometimes. I’m glad to see that this mother was not afraid to discipline her son. The child will learn from this experience – and I bet he doesn’t ever do it again!
