    CNN (and the police) deliberately chose the video of a black child despite the fact that there are a ton of videos of little white kids doing this on Youtube as well. And the comments deliberately picked up on the kid's race.

      You're going to have to link to them. I couldn't watch the entire video (which as far as I know did not originate on CNN). It was repulsive and sad.

        I recommend typing in "kids behaving badly." It's really sad. I've got a Facebook friend who posts videos of little kids behaving terribly all the time.
