His mother, who is 16, was interviewed by a CNN affiliate claiming that, "He's a smart little boy. All that cussing that he did, he doesn't do that. Somebody told him to do that. My son doesn't do that. I don't allow it."
Police in Omaha posted the video to its website to highlight what it called, "the cycle of violence and thuggery" in the community. There is an ongoing investigation as to the health and safety of the child in question.
To say the footage is disturbing is a gross understatement.
Is this child in danger? Perhaps the courts will decide.
