Cursing Toddler Video Shocks the WebBy: Erika Watts - January 9, 2014
If you have kids, you know all too well about how tough it can be to control your language sometimes. While most parents or caregivers are actively trying to watch their language so the little ones don’t pick up any bad words, a video has surfaced that shows a toddler being encouraged to curse. Not only does the diapered youngster drop quite a few select words, he has mastered the art of using his middle finger as well. The child has since been removed from the home, but sadly, the bad language only scratches the surface of the toddler’s troubled life.
The cursing toddler video went viral after it was posted to the Omaha Police Officers Association website under the title The Thug Cycle. The video was found on Facebook and the OPOA notes that they shared the video because they “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.”
Check out the uncensored video of the cursing toddler below. Since the video contains a lot of profanities, make sure you don’t have the volume up if you’re at work or around kids.
Authorities in Omaha, Nebraska reportedly took the cursing toddler and two other children from their home on Wednesday, and from the sound of things, the bad language is the least of the child’s troubles. The family is associated with gangs and the toddler was hit by shrapnel from a gun fired in the home back in October.
The toddler has a 16-year-old mother, and both of his grandparents have been locked up. Ennis Devers, Sr., the grandfather, is in prison on drug and gun charges. Kim Devers, the grandmother, was arrested in December on a weapons charge. The children were left in the care of a 19-year-old, but were removed from the home after the teen complained to the caseworker and the video went viral.
