Video: Father Of Bullied Toddler Speaks Out: “I am disgusted” But It’s All Good…’Blown Out Of Proportion’
Followup to: Black Kids Bully 3Yr Old White Girl,Titles Video Of The Assault “When White People Piss Black People Off” [August 2013] –UPDATE 2: AUDIO: Boy’s Mother Ranika Wills “Just a joke” “It is not like they really f*cked this little girl up, she’s fine.”
It’s becoming a common problem — kids behave badly, record it on cell phones, and post the unruly acts online; however, one video showing two girls picking on a 3-year-old has two families answering dozens of calls.
Shock and anger are not uncommon reactions to videos depicting bullying behavior, with online comments attacking everyone involved — including the parents. FOX 9 News spoke with both families and found the aftermath is still affecting them.
Both families were unaware anything had happened — let alone had been filmed and posted online — until the calls started pouring in from across the country. At first, they were just as outraged as anyone else. Now, they are very concerned.
Unaware? That much is obvious. She was riding her big wheel in the freaking street. Where were the parents during the altercation?? Why did they not hear her cries?? Obliviously unaware is more like it.
“I wasn’t happy with the video, obviously,” said Shawn, the father of the girl who was bullied in the video. “I am disgusted with it.”
Shawn told FOX 9 News he had no idea his daughter was the toddler who was bullied in the video until the father of the bullies came over to apologize.
“He’s taking care of it. Trust me,” Shawn told FOX 9. “He’s a good father and everything like that, so I’m not worried about what he’s doing over there.”
Many who watched the online video — which has been viewed more than a 250,000 times — assumed it was a clear case of racially-motivated bullying, but parents in both families say it’s not.
“I honestly don’t know where it comes from. We don’t teach that in our household,” Eddie, the father of the girls involved, said. “We’re not racist, none of that.”
Then explain the video title; “When white people piss black people off”, and his voyeuristic sadistic thirst to abuse a toddler while filming it! He has picked up his nasty habits somewhere. Here’s a thought, an eleven year old is to young to be on the internet unsupervised. Yes, really.
Both dads say their children usually play together and get along well, and they say viewers have blown the footage out of proportion and made it into something bigger than what it really is.
The video was shot by Eddie’s 12-year-old son, and it shows his 5-year-old daughter bringing the younger girl to tears.
“She’s not that way. You can see she’s — they’re — clearly getting coached through the whole situation,” Eddie told FOX 9. “When I [saw] it, I was disgusted with the video — very disgusted.”
Seemed to be a willing participant to me… In fact it looked as if she enjoyed abusing the toddler as much as her brother did watching her do so.
“He’s punished and getting dealt with,” Eddie insisted. “Internet, everything — privileges taken away. We’re dealing with it as a family.”
While many people are pleased the fathers are tackling the problem head-on, that didn’t stop local police from stopping by to make sure there wasn’t a bigger problem. At this point, both parents say they want to use the incident as a teaching moment. [...]
Here’s hoping their kumbaya moment is successful…
Who among you see this as a case of child abuse? IMHO An 11 year who thinks that it is okay to direct 5 year old children to physically assault a 3 year old child, cheer it on, laugh and celebrate the act, video it and share it online has some deep seated problems. And that goes for all the little monsters who do similar. Black or White.
