Teaching a child racial epithets isn’t a crime, but it can lead to your children being taken from you.
A police union in Nebraska has posted a video of a toddler using the “N-word” and a “slew of profanities” while arguing with adults over a toppled chair, reports CNN, who, unlike police, has blurred the face of the child. The kid even knows how to “shoot a bird.”
The toddler and three other children were taken from the home Wednesday by Omaha police and Nebraska Child Protective Services.
The police union, who says it got the video from a “local thug’s Facebook page,” posted the video on its website to “highlight what it called the ‘cycle of violence and thuggery’ the community faces,” reports CNN.
“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,” said the police union.
Omaha’s police chief, the ACLU, and “community organizers” are not happy the video was posted, saying it needlessly antagonizes minorities.
That’s a valid point, perhaps. But is acting like a thug and teaching a child to act like a thug cause enough to remove them from the home? Should the police union have posted the video?
