Police union draws fire over swearing toddler 'thug' video

Police union draws fire over swearing toddler 'thug' video

The diapered child is bombarded with obscenities and racial slurs by the adults around him.

The African-American toddler knocks down a chair and gives nearly as good as he gets, responding to some of the comments with an upraised middle finger and telling one of the adults at one point, "Shut up, bitch." The adults laugh and prompt him to repeat other crudities. Just another day on the Internet -- until the police union in Omaha, Nebraska, posted the clip on its website to highlight what it called the "cycle of violence and thuggery" the community faces.

Now, the Omaha Police Officers' Association is under fire from the city's police chief, the ACLU and at least one community leader. They say the move needlessly antagonizes the city's minority communities, who make up about a quarter of Omaha's 409,000 residents.

Would it fix things if they reshot the video with a white baby? Would anyone believe those were the voices of his white family?

“The city’s police chief, the ACLU and at least one community leader” are too stupid and/or corrupt to see the REAL problem.

They are so busy fomenting faux outrage that they are failing the very community they claim to support.

Originally, the family of thugs who are raising this baby put this video online. It was only put up by the police after the family had done so.

Just as we have to be politically correct, and dance around subjects such as gang violence, flash mobs, etc., or be accused of racism, here too we are.urged by the liberals to be politically correct. And the implication is that it is racist to say anything about how this baby is being raised.

I have no doubts that this baby is a gang banger in training. Sad but true. The truth hurts. But critical masses of black boys are being raised in ghetto culture with ghetto values.

I will now give the politically correct disclaimer, that there are thugs of all races, so no liberal will say I’m racist. Yes there are white gang types, and gang bangers of other ethnicities too, not just black.

Took courage for the Police Union to post this video - it's not PC, but it is the truth.

Problems can't be dealt with or solved when those in positions of authority have to wear blinders. Good for the police union - good for CNN.

There was a time in this country when majorities within ALL “communities” across the nation: white, black, hispanic, asian, etc., would have been outraged by the behavior of the adults in such a video (regardless of their race), and would have been calling for justice for the CHILD. I can remember a time when the “black community” in my city would have been more outraged than any other if it was discovered that some of their “people” engaged in such barbaric child abuse.

Now, in Obama’s “fundamentally changed” America, certain “communities” care more about WHO exposes their flaws than they do about recognizing and remedying those flaws.

It makes me both angry and sad.

Then this morally-deformed child hits the public school system and chaos ensues. The race pimps and do-gooders moan that these thugs are more often disciplined in school than children who have been taught basic civility. Duh.

While the liberals like to celebrate the “Cosby Show” from the 80s as a reflection of an African-American family, this is what a real African-American family looks like.

All the Hollywood sit-coms and media propaganda can’t cover up the truth.

So the people are outraged that the police union commented on the culture, but they have no outrage for the thuggish adults who created and posted the video in the first place.

This is just another straw on the camel’s back. Sure seems the holderite culture is training for a war, not unlike the muslims using their kids as suicide bombers.

Sad for them, when they finally push this over the edge, their whole feral culture will pay a heavy price, as it should be.

Nahhh. This is just another caseof the cops misbehaving and getting away with what nobody can because they have the power.

This is dangerous and they are offensive and out of order.

Go here and see what the poster (allegedly the boy's uncle) has say about it.

Yeah, truth hurts.

Notice it is an unseen young man who is feeding words and phrases to the baby to repeat. The baby is simply trying to please his elders; he has no idea what he is repeating, only that the older male is pleased with his responses. The women are silent, making no effort to stop the man from teaching this filth to the baby. Are they afraid of him?

I wouldn't down the Cosby show so quickly. It was what most people think one should aspire to. Stable, successful families. Cosby has railed against the breakdown of the black family and the thuggish behavior you see now. Don't see him on TV much anymore do you? They were role models that were rejected by blacks and it's replacement was rap, drugs and hate.

Uh no. I don’t support that. It wazs my understanding that the police union was using this video for “entertaiment”.

Oh no. Not at all. See the link in post 23. The police had used this a warning and a teaching tool to create awareness of crime in their community. They also notified Child Protective Services.

I think the police acted very wisely here.

Oh. And from that link in post 23.....

The person who originally put the video online claims to be the boy’s uncle. He is not too pleased with folks upset about the toddler’s environment and the adults who surround him.

He responded. (Graphic language not deleted)

“Man **** all of y’all because the matter of the fact is you act like we was giving that little boy weed or we have a gun in his hand or something bitch no! but I put your ass in an orphanage don’t ever talk on my ******* cousin move around with that **** I don’t give a **** about you, the police or these ************* leaving comments on this ************ so therefore all y’all can **** my **** ******!”

Maybe you are right. But given the kindof atmosphere created as of late, they should have reconsidered.

People who made the video are idiots who shouldn’t be reproducing.

Interesting in light of Eric Holder’s statements about biased discipline in schools. We certainly can’t go tellin’ the truth now can we?
