When I was a kid, the family next door to my best friends had a little kid named "Kevvie" (presumably short for Kevin) who apparently knew only three words: "butthole" (pronounced "bu-ho"), "shut" (pronounced "suh"), and "up" (pronounced as it should be). He could string these into a sort of rudimentary imperative sentence: "Suh up, bu-ho!"

Little Kevvie really liked that sentence, because as far as we could tell he'd just stand out in the back yard and yell that over and over and over until an adult dragged him back inside. We found it endlessly entertaining, and could never figure out at whom it was directed (a large vine-covered fence separating the yards): us? His parents? Siblings? Sometimes when he'd really get going, he'd draw out that last syllable: "Suh up, bu...hoooOOOOOOOOOO!" Always wondered what his home life was like that this was the thing he'd latched onto. The family moved and alas I never got to find out what happened to Little Kevvie.

cgraves67: Well, it could be that the state agency did its due diligence and found evidence of negligence on the part of the household against the child and proceeded with legal action to remove the child from the home. Meanwhile the internet and media have latched on to the "cursing toddler" aspect of the story because it's salacious and that's all we are hearing about, so it just seems like it's an over-reaction. Or it's a legitimate over-reaction.


This is almost certainly the case. Were I the prosecutor having to make the argument for removal, I would absolutely bring up the video, but I feel confident that there was something else in the background that prompted the action. All we see, and all we can see, is the video. It shows terrible parenting, but we're assuming the people in the video are the kids parents, they could be older brothers or uncles. Either way, I don't think this video is enough for action, and I couldn't see a judge accepting the video as a convincing argument on its own.

I will say that the people in this video, and soon their kid, always seem to be on every city bus I take on the way home from work.

I am not really shocked by this, you see it everyday.

I guess that I am just saddened by the fact that this kid is potentially destroyed before he even gets started.

It is more than just the swearing, it is the talking back, teaching him it is ok, and a whole host of other things..


I spent a couple years teaching at a school that allowed me to have a chunk of my student loans forgiven.  It was common for 6th graders to openly threaten teachers, confront teachers, use racial slurs, etc.  Kids these days, I tells ya...

Why are words about human sexuality considered explict?  I'm sorry your phoney religous morality has brainwashed you but language is beautiful even when cruel, like nature.

Just another day on the Internet -- until the police union in Omaha, Nebraska, posted the clip on its website to highlight what it called the "cycle of violence and thuggery" the community faces.

Well I'm certainly glad this dangerous criminal is in custody. I hope they tased him and gave him a few whacks with the billy club before they took him in.

I'd give almost anything to go back in time and raise a child to be a little hit-girl.  well, my kids are all boys so I guess it'd be hit-kid or some shiat but still.

OnlyM3: digitalrain [TotalFark]

I just don't see where teaching a 2 year old kid to say "suck my dick" (and that's the tamer stuff) is a good thing. I don't think anyone is making that argument.

I think the point is sending armed gunmen to abduct said child is exponentially worse.

It's not the state's farking business.

// correction, it shouldn't be the state's farking business.

As soon as he gets old enough to join a gang, and knock over the corner market. Then it's the state's farking business.
Pretty sure that's where this toddler is headed.

About 30% of americans are being arrested by the age of 23. Using your post, the state should be raising 1/3 of the population.
 
2014-01-09 12:02:33 PM  

Barfmaker: While I think the behaviour that led to this is certainly questionable, it just doesn't seem to be "take the children away" material unless something else was going on.


I completely agree with you.  Bad parenting isn't against the law, nor should it be.  This is clearly bad parenting but it does not violate any law.

That said, it seems something else was going on.  I searched around for other articles and they all had a version of "The joint investigation found safety concerns" in it.

This behavior warranted child welfare people to knock on their door.  I'm okay with that.  When they got there, they found other problems that warranted taking the children away.

Here's what may have/probably happened:

Video->Posting on Internet->Re-posting by police->Concerned Citizen calls police->Police pass complain to Social Services->Social Services is reasonably suspicious abuse may be occurring based upon video, and investigates->Social Services goes to home, finds things that are of imminent danger and harm to children->Children are removed from home.

What probably didn't happen:

Video->Posting on Internet->Nazi's break down doors and point guns at everyone and steal the children->Police claim victory and shag the dead hookers they keep in evidence locker along with the blow.

You MAY BE SURPRISED TO LEARN there's a process for these things. I'm as big a cop and government hater as the next guy, but FFS people, THINK: this is what they chose to show the world. What do you think was found in the house when Social Services visited that they were hiding?

The creator of the video, supposedly the uncle of the toddler, cleared it all up with a facebook message yesterday.

Man fark all of yall because the matter of the fact is you act like we was giving that little boy weed or we have a gun in his hand or something biatch no! but I put your ass in an orphanage don't ever talk on my farkin cousin move around with that shiat I don't give a fark about you , the police or these motherfarkers leaving comments on this motherfarker so therefore all yall can suck my dick nubian!

I am not sure it would be appropriate for me to move into an orphanage, so we should drop this before he puts me in one.

I'm willing to bet that this is exactly what happened.
If a CPS worked called my office and said "We have this video of a child using bad words and we'd like an emergency order removing the child from the custody of the parents." I would tell them that no magistrate or judge is going to sign off on that. If CPS went to the house based on the video and saw that the house was filthy or that the child was left home alone or that drugs were open and visible in the house, that's enough.
The video is enough to get an investigation, but not enough for a removal.

I'm going to really enjoy when someone calls me a jack-booted thug fellating cop apologist. When I said I'm as big a hater as anyone? Yeah, my house was full-on-raided by 6 officers in June. Believe me, I don't care too much for the way they spend their time, but I would say if the evidence was there this was certainly a proper use of it.

The part that really bothered me was the 'racism' outcry and lawsuits against the union for posting the video. Of all the people involved in the video, the people taping themselves were the only racists I saw (but since they were black, they can't be racist which means i must be one.)
Hell, nowadays you have to make sure the people stealing your car are not black before calling the cops, just to be sure you aren't committing a hate crime by reporting them.

Funny, how much people looooove using the public internet to spread their bragging far and wide, right up until it comes back to bite them in the ass. Then it's OUTRAGEOUS when other people share their PRIVATE INFORMATION.
