Police union defends its decision to post the "thug" baby video

t's a shocking video, a toddler wearing nothing but a diaper trading expletives with adults off-screen who are egging him on. It went viral after an Omaha police union posted it. The union's president, Sgt. John Wells, defended the decision in a discussion with Anderson and Former Federal Prosecutor Sunny Hostin.

The young boy's mother is defending her family. She spoke with Dave Roberts, a reporter at CNN affiliate KETV.

    I think they did the right thing because this type of child rearing has become normal among many poorly educated minorities in this country. This type of thing has been going on for decades, adults teaching toddlers to use profanity. Seeing this did not shock me in the least. Parenting is not a priority in these people's minds.

    Of course they would defend the posting of the video. By posting the video, the police union is casting this is what goes on in all families where there is gang activity & that's not exactly true. It also alludes to the fact that only those who are in poverty are involved in gang activity. Not true. Should the behaviour displayed, stop, but of course. But, also recognize that the mother was not involved in the scene.
