WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE CONTENT IN VIDEO
A toddler who was cursed at and encouraged to curse in a video posted online has been placed in protective custody. Omaha police said that four children, including the toddler from the video that was posted by the police union, were removed from the home. The union has faced criticism for posting the video on its website. Union officials say they wanted to stimulate discussion about problems in the community and show what officers encounter. But critics said there were better ways to do that without subjecting a child to ridicule. The video shows an African-American boy wearing only a diaper as he’s harangued with racial slurs and obscenities from at least three adults.
