Black Lives Matter Supporter Shares Photo of Himself Kneeling on White Baby's Neck
Investigation launched as disturbing image emerges on social media with pro-BLM caption
An investigation has been launched after a disturbing image of a Black Lives Matter supporter, seemingly kneeling on the neck of a white baby, emerged on social media.
The photo shows a crying, diapered infant being held face down on the ground while the shirtless thug places his knee on the young child's neck.
The image was uploaded to social media with the caption "BLM now mf."
Clark County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that the incident is currently under investigation.
James stated on Facebook that Jackson has been arrested over the image, but the sheriff's office has yet to confirm any arrests or charges.
The paternal grandmother of the child wrote on Facebook that the shocking and disturbing photo was taken while the two-year-old was with his mother, who is dating Jackson, according to The Gateway Pundit.
The mother attempted to defend the photo when confronted about it, calling the person “ignorant” and claiming that “he wasn’t hurting him.”
The very angry grandmother said that the baby is now with her son and safe.
She is currently attempting to find out who was holding the child’s legs and who took the photo.
“My son is beyond pissed,” she wrote.
"He took his boy to the ER to get checked out and everything came back good.
“He better be glad nothing bad happened to my grandson and he better hide from all the people who will be coming for him when he gets out of jail.”
WHIO TV 7 reports that “investigators in Clark County said they are investigating the post, however, no arrests have been made and charges have not been filed.”
Their report said that, according to emergency scanner traffic, deputies, police, and medics were called to two different addresses Tuesday morning in Clark County as a part of the investigation.
“We are looking into this case, however, it is still an active investigation,” Maj. Chris Clark said in an emailed statement to the station.
"At this point, we are actively looking into it and we are VERY early on into this investigation."
