The Omaha Police Association posted a video on its Facebook Page that is disturbing in several ways. The OPA stated that the reason for posting the video is to educate and posted these words on Facebook, "We here at OmahaPOA.com viewed the video and we knew that despite the fact that it is sickening, heartbreaking footage, we have an obligation to share it to continue to educate the law abiding public about the terrible cycle of violence and thuggery that some young innocent children find themselves helplessly trapped in." yes and obligation.

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.The video can be viewed here, here, or here
Listen to the discussions this child is immersed in.
The thug that posted this video indicates in a subsequent comment that the child is his nephew.
From Raw story
While KMTV picked up the police association’s post as a “warning for everyone,” Black Men United in Omaha Executive Director Willie Hamilton told the Omaha World-Herald that it was unprofessional to call out a child and draw conclusions based on a short Facebook video.While the video is out there in the world of internetland I will not post the video unless the child's face is blocked out. If we could peek into the homes of all Americans(all), just how many children, women and men would we discover live in horrible and terrifying homes. This does not give the uncle or parent cover because this disturbs me. But then what "thug cycle," how many people of all races will tell you about the terrible abuses that they themselves endured and still did not turn out to be a "thug".
“The police actually have a website that is perpetuating mistrust and anger, and I think that is what it is meant to do,” Hamilton pointed out. “I thought posting the video was crossing the line. To use that incident to say that our kids are going to grow up and be thugs is far-reaching and insensitive. We are talking about a child that hasn’t even gone to school yet.”
“If the police chief is trying to amend the broken relationship with our community, he needs to say, ‘On my watch, I will not allow this kind of behavior,’” he added. “Maybe we should look at how much control the police union has. They shouldn’t be able to use the website as a shield to post these nasty things.”
What the OmahaPOA did was to essentially do a racial profile Facebook check on the baby and it seems to be almost like a lookey-look... told ya so nod to white people to show what goes on in the homes of all black people because hey... Education.
