An Omaha toddler has been taken into protective custody after a video surfaced online showing adults encouraging him to swear and repeat back phrases involving sex and violence.
The video was initially posted to Facebook, but made headlines after it was posted by the Omaha Police Officers Association's blog. The association post said the video is "really bad and it will make you angry" and those watching the video "are literally watching the cycle of violence continue right in front of your eyes."
The video opens with the black toddler, dressed only in a diaper, pushing over a chair and saying, "You a b----, n-----." A male adult laughs off camera then says to the child, "F--- you."
A few seconds later, a woman tells the child to repeat back "suck my d---," and the child does.
The association did not name the man who posted the video -- believed to be the toddler's uncle -- because they "refuse to give this thug any notoriety or attention" even though they would "love to publicly shame him."
The Omaha Police Department said investigators were able to identify the toddler and the people heard encouraging him in the background.
While there was no criminal activity, police said there were "concerns for the well-being of the identified toddler and other children believed to be in the home."
Four children, including the boy in the video, have been removed from the house.

While I can completely understand investigating the home, I'm a little confused as to why the Police Association would re-post it on it's blog and allow it (or at the very least aid it) in going viral. Seems like a somewhat questionable move to me.
