    Police union draws fire over swearing toddler 'thug' video

    This is truly disturbing...don't know how anyone can defend this video

    Police union draws fire over swearing toddler 'thug' video

    By Matt Smith and Casey Wian, CNN

    (CNN) -- 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.
    Police under fire for baby 'thug' video Police right to post baby 'thug' video?
    Sgt. John Wells, the union's president, said the video was "disturbing" and "offensive."
    "The focus here isn't on any particular ethnic group. The focus here is on the troubling behavior towards this child," Wells said. "This behavior is going to potentially lead this child down a path that is completely unhealthy."
    On the website where the video is hosted, the union said the clip came from "a local thug's public Facebook page."
    "We here at OmahaPOA.com viewed the video and we knew that despite the fact that it is sickening, heartbreaking footage, we have an obligation to share it to continue to educate the law abiding public about the terrible cycle of violence and thuggery that some young innocent children find themselves helplessly trapped in," the police union wrote in a post accompanying the video.
    "Now while we didn't see anything in this video that is blatantly 'illegal,' we sure did see a lot that is flat out immoral and completely unhealthy for this little child from a healthy upbringing standpoint," it added.
    Wells said one of the adults mentions a local street gang in the video.
    "That is why when we talk about the culture, the criminal culture, that this is to try to break the cycle and deal with the culture of violence and the culture of gang activity," he said.
    But in a city where police officers' treatment of minorities led to lawsuits, criminal charges against two officers and the firings and reassignments of several others in the past year, critics say the video is poking at raw wounds. Willie Hamilton, president of the community activist group Black Men United, said the union "crossed a line by doing this."
    "For them to take a video out of context -- a 2-year-old who doesn't have the brain capacity to know what's going on -- and to say that this child, because two adults acted inappropriately, is going to end up in a life of crime is totally inappropriate," Hamilton said.
    And the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska, which filed an excessive-force suit against the Omaha Police Department on behalf of an African-American family on Monday, said the union's use of "racially charged language" was "very disconcerting."
    "Officers should be working to build a culture where anyone feels comfortable calling law enforcement," ACLU of Nebraska Executive Director Becki Brenner said in a written statement. "The manner in which the Officers Association has discussed this incident has done nothing but further erode community trust and reinforce the need for independent oversight, trainings, and other reforms."
    Police Chief Todd Schmaderer tried to distance his agency from the controversy in a statement issued Tuesday, saying that the union's website and Facebook page are separate from those of the Omaha Police Department and that he has little authority over the public statements of union members.
    "With that background and understanding, I want to make it explicit and clear that the views expressed on the OPOA Facebook page do not necessarily reflect the official stance of the Omaha Police Department," Schmaderer said. "I strongly disagree with any postings that may cause a divide in our community or an obstacle to police community relations."
    Hamilton said the statement was too little, too late. Schmaderer was speaking out only "because this thing is on the Internet and went viral," he said.
    "What do you think it's going to do about the trust level? You think we're going to call you and tell you anything? No. All this is doing is highlighting that."
    Wells said union members have turned the video over to the department's child victim unit, which will work with child-welfare agencies to investigate the circumstances. He said the organization "didn't think we'd get this big of a reaction."
    "Hopefully, the impact is, it gives law-abiding citizens what law enforcement deals with on a daily basis, and it sort of throws back the blinders that these type of problems are going on," he said. "And we can have a very frank and open discussion on how to tackle these issues and come up with solutions."

    What the libtards fail to note is that "thug" can be applied to any color, any race. They also will not admit that this is happening in millions of homes everyday by both blacks and white trash folk. Hey Homoha, this kid is coming soon to a Head Start class! He is going to treat your daughters with the same amount of respect you see in the video.

    Must be watched for the future generation of thugs. Knockout Game? LULZ

    Of course the libs and blacks are pissed about this being aired, but remember, it was the "parents" who posted it. They (the blacks) do not want the general public to see what life is like in many ghetto homes every.single.day. They have no shame except when they are caught.

    Here's some more thug life: http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=c08_1389137070

    I went to school with kids like this in Virginia. It's kind of why I'm in favor of capital punishment even if these hoodlums aren't actually committing a capital crime...yet. By the way, TPG, some people like me, who are basically liberals, still don't hesitate to call a spade a spade-- please pardon the expression.

    Oh, I live in the midst of plenty of White trash, and do not fail to call that out....especially after their 10th call to 911 for a "domestic incident".....what I have a problem with is the black community being "outraged" and the ACLU also being "outraged" when this is posted about blacks. Whites seem to hold other whites to a higher standard than blacks seem to hold their fellow blacks. Am I wrong in thinking that? All the motherly cries of "he was a good boy, just got caught up" from black families after their offspring were killed during a robbery/murder attempt seem to back that up. You hardly hear that from a white family. Since this thread, and the OP by CNN was based on race, I find this acceptable.

    They are not pissed at the crappy parents of this toddler, they are pissed at the media and the Omaha Police Union for finding and posting the video with the tag "thug".

    There's long been a whole lot of denial going on. For example, it's gotten to the point that the New York Daily News will endanger the public by intentionally omitting the race of dangerous fugitives. There's a huge problem in the black community that, unfortunately, the mainstream media tiptoe around or outright ignore due to the overwhelming dread of being tarred with the racist brush. And it is generally true, as you say, that blacks hold fellow blacks to a lesser standard than whites do with other whites. There doesn't seem to be the same stigma attached to a lot of anti-social behavior up to and including murder. This may help to explain why there have been few death sentences coming out of majority-black jurisdictions such as the City of Baltimore (when there was capital punishment in Maryland), Atlanta, New Orleans and the City of St. Louis.

    You make a very good point Moh..it seems that people have become desensitized to the evil around them and they accept all the rottenness as the norm...shame

    Being unjustly called a racist is liberating because from this point on you can say and think whatever you want and your status as a "racist" cannot get any worse. The race hustlers should consider it when dispensing this label.

    Another point: I will gladly start using that artificial, made-up and totally false term, African American, when they start calling me European American, except that I am from Europe and the American blacks are not from Africa.

    I also noticed how they selectively use African American when talking about good blacks, but black murderers are simply black. Why blemish the term that is reserved for better occasions?

    Yeah, like the "African" names they name their multiple children. I will take note from an arrest in Wichita this week, where 3 black "youths" robbed a dying woman of her wedding ring. Off her finger. Quanique Dontrell Thomas-Hameen, Daquantrius Shaquill Johnson were arresrted for the robbery, along with Keith Hickles who has not near as a silly name. [/QUOTE]

    Since the lapdog press hides their race, we can deduce from their names what they really are.
