This makes my blood boil. A 43 year old East Sparta Ohio man and his son were caught on video, mocking and bullying a 10 years old girl with cerebral palsy. The video shows William Bailey and his son walking behind the little girl, mocking and taunting her.

See the sickening footage below the fold.

The mother of the child who shot the video said that this wasn't the first time Bailey had mocked her daughter. She contacted Cleveland's 19 Action News and they aired the story this week.

She claims that her children are terrified of the man and are frightened to play outside because of him.

“They don’t want to play outside,” Knight told Action News. They don’t want to sleep in their bedroom.”
The news station also reported the following background on Bailey.
19 Action News has also learned that Bailey was convicted earlier this year of aggravated menacing.  The Canton City Prosecutors office tells us he fired a shot in the direction of a utility worker.
Additionally, it is claimed that the two families are involved in some sort of ongoing feud and they have both filed complaints with their prosecutor's office.

The bottom line is that I don't care what kind of history these people have between one another. There is absolutely no excuse for a grown man setting the example this creep set for his own son. The cruelty on display is vicious and beyond anything we as a decent society should tolerate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
