thugbabyOMAHA, NE - A Nebraska infant who gained fame in a viral video in which he swore, flipped the bird to the camera and repeated a string of vulgarities has been taken into protective custody, Omaha police announced on Wednesday. Three other children were also removed from the home, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page.

The child, wearing a diaper,  is told to repeat a number of obscenities and racial slurs by the adults taking the video. The infant, who is black, is shown knocking over a chair and at times taunts the adults back, calling one of them a bitch and telling her to shut up. The adults are heard laughing and encouraging him to keep going.

Though the conduct is disgusting, that didn’t stop the baby’s mother, 16-year-old Ennisha  Devers, from speaking out in defense of her child-rearing skills and taking up for her two-year-old son, after claiming that her brother shot the video-while she was in another room.

“He had a clean diaper, the house was clean and like they said, kids curse, every kid does it,” Devers said. “He’s a smart little boy. All that cussing that he did, he doesn’t do that. Somebody told him to do that. My son doesn’t do that. I don’t allow it.”

The police union in Omaha, Nebraska, posted the video on its website as an example of what it labeled the “cycle of violence and thuggery” that’s challenging the community. Although there isn’t anything illegal that occurs in the clip, the department said that the Nebraska Child Protective Services unit  found ‘safety concerns,’ leading to the baby and three other children being taken from the home.

The union was blasted by the ACLU for posting the video, along with a number of complaints posted online from outraged residents and out-of-staters, who claim that sharing the clip antagonizes the city’s minority communities. Union president John Wells called the video, “disturbing” and “offensive.” Before trying to do a little damage control.

“The focus here isn’t on any particular ethnic group. The focus here is on the troubling behavior towards this child,” Wells told reporters. “This behavior is going to potentially lead this child down a path that is completely unhealthy.” Wells said one of the adults mentions a local street gang in the video, and that the clip had been taken from a local thug’s Facebook page.

Willie Hamilton, president of the community activist group Black Men United, said the union crossed a line by posting the video. “For them to take a video out of context — a 2-year-old who doesn’t have the brain capacity to know what’s going on — and to say that this child, because two adults acted inappropriately, is going to end up in a life of crime is totally inappropriate,” Hamilton said.

Wells told reporters that the union has turned the video over to the department’s child victim unit, which will work with child-welfare agencies to investigate the circumstances. There was no word on Friday as to the placement of the toddler or the other children removed from Devers’ custody.

    Encouraging a toddler to behave like a thug leads to child thugs that grow up and become adult thugs. I’m glad they removed the children, if for no other reason, to give them a shot at NOT becoming the future thugs they were being encouraged to be.

  • glitterpuss

    Classy. I’m sure the baby will grow up to become a pillar of our society while surrounded by these fools.

  • Eliza Berntsen

    That video is so disturbing. I can not imagine teaching a child to speak/ behave like that. And have to disagree with Mr Hamilton on this one- bringing up a child in exactly such a way is how they grow up to be 14-year old mothers and 13-year old thugs. He will never know anything else. Also, his colour has nothing to do with it- brought up by imbecile thugs will most likely result in future imbecile thugs, be them asian, black, white or fucking marsian.

  • Taxidermi

    WOW great freaking role models!
    Trash.
    I don’t care what age those 2 recording the video were, they should KNOW that behavior is not acceptable in front of children (OR ANYONE FOR THAT MATTER).
    That was just disgusting.

  • Vesper B

    No, little girl: not all babies act this way. And, if there are adults around who condone this behavior, then the adults need to grow up themselves.

    This is absolutely ridiculous. I’m an adult and don’t have this kid’s potty mouth. And to think this is funny? To be proud? Frak no! I’ve a cousin who is six and cusses freely. It’s an embarrassment to take the brat out, to the point where I avoid him.

  • LuluMontegut

    Pfft, i saw this exact situation in person, in the flesh…and it was White Trash in a trailer, little white toddler flipping people off and cursing. So i call BULLSHIT on any kind of claims of racism. White Trash, Thug Trash, its ALL the same.

  • thebossessecretary

    Tragic. And completely avoidable. This has nothing to do with race and everything to do with intelligence. Bakersfield has a white ghetto – I lived in it for years – and I saw lots of this behavior.

  • Connie Markarian

    I think the mom is 16?..this video took place while she was in another room of the home?..call me crazy, but ur 2yo is throwing chairs down, & the imbeciles making the video r soo loud, & it doesn’t dawn on u to c what’s going on?..this mom became a mom @around 14..who knows?.maybe this is just normal child-rearing behavior in her home..I’m heartbroken for this little boy :(

  • Ric Gillespie

    Disturbing behavior aside, if she’s such a great mother and her son is so smart, why is he two-years-old and still wearing a diaper?

  • mean birch

    Well damn, wasted all my time and energy on nuturing when all’s it takes to raise a child is a clean diaper and a clean house?

  • Lena60

    How pitiful. well what can we expect from a 16 year old who had a kid at 14.

  • Texas Ranger

    Maybe it’s a gang symbol?

  • Texas Ranger

    Ok…Terrible child raising on all levels…BUT Police Union has no reason to post something as stupid as this to “Combat thuggery” I see it as pure and simple police racial profiling bordering on publicly condoned racism. Doesn’t appear that Omaha has a single person that can make a good decision…

  • rpgmomma8404

    I am wondering that as well.

  • Delaney3030

    Y’all need to stop hatin’

  • Vicki

    There’s a context in which you should take of a video of a two-year-old cursing and flipping people off?

  • Rachel Ann

    There’s black people in Nebraska? WOW. No, I kid I kid! Thanks for perpetuating a stereotype you ignorant bunch of no nothing’s. Omg sterilize that 16y/o NOW! Thank God she has no more kids yet.

  • Squeakycheese

    Damn, kid has already been shot in the foot. That’s some thug live’n right there! http://m.nydailynews.com/1.1575076#bmb=1

  • misssmartypants

    What Im worried about, is what the fuck is going to happen to him and the other kids removed? Foster care? That’s a great place? They will be seperated. He wasn’t being beaten, starved, tortured. The adults in his tiny life were idiots. If anything, those kids should have never been removed, and the parents forced to parenting classes. That’s it.

  • Jeania

    Lots of messed up stuff about this vid; but the diaper part isn’t apart of it. Kids are potty trained at different ages and at different developmental stages.
    The vid as a whole is messed up though.. what scares me is what kind of world my twin 3 year olds are going to be in when they start school full time :/ There’s a lot of people out there these days who’d consider this to be ok >.<

  • LuvsHorror

    Bullshit. If it was a white kid you’d have no problem posting it. Doesn’t matter what race he is, his future is important and these assholes are mucking it up. Teaching him to be another asshole who will be featured here in sixteen years.

  • Quasimodem1969

    Were they even speaking English?

  • ultracreep

    Apparently mom and company can bother to teach him how to cuss and flip people off but they can’t potty train him. Yep, sounds like being raised by an irresponsible teenager to me.

  • ultracreep

    I’m sure that we’re all helping pay for the diapers and the clean house as well.

  • Cheeseburger Sanchez

    From what I have heard, one of the things the police and CPS found when they took the kids were five loaded weapons that the children had access to. So… I am going to say this was a win for the police. And no, you stupid little girl, all children do NOT do this. My children would be in so much trouble if they said or behaved anything like this. Because I am raising my children to not suck as adults. Just. Ick.

  • Leasha

    Wow, Mom is 16, SHOCKER! Okay, risk of “thug life” aside, the children should have been removed anyway. A “parent” who teaches a child vulgarity, racism & violence does NOT deserve a child at all. I hope they cut & burn this cunt’s tubes, and I sincerely hope the children are put in loving homes where they will be raised/taught how to be a decent human being. I hope ALL “parents” who pull this shit get their kids taken away, or killed. Either is fine with me.

  • Leasha

    Just because a child doesn’t know how to use the toilet after only 2 years on Earth doesn’t mean he’s not smart. Fucking educate yourself, dude.

  • Leasha

    Please go play in traffic.

  • Leasha

    Oh for fuck’s sake, they’re gonna let mom stay with baby in protective custody? GOOD IDEA, FUCKING MORONS! Well, rest in peace to the decent boy the child COULD HAVE BEEN, but won’t be due to his “mother” and Nebraska.

  • Leasha

    All the kids AND mom were placed with CPS. So basically, nothing will change.

  • Leasha

    Children grow differently. It’s not a law that a child MUST know how to use the toilet at 2. They’re fucking babies, potty training takes time. My son was in diapers at 2 for a bit while he learned how to use the toilet, and guess what? He has above average intelligence. The kid in this story is 2, not 5. Give him a fucking break.

  • misssmartypants

    Boy o boy. That just kills me. What in the hell is the CPS folks going to do when they overlooked a child who really needs their help, because this warrants more attention. Find it odd, that this is basically a need for more interpersonal child rearing skill training, than the knee jerk response it got from white folks.

  • Me0w

    I think he was probably better off in the home if he has to go to foster care in Nebraska now.

  • marypoppins

    Reading this article and watching the clip my mind flashed back to another story/clip posted on DD. It was a white woman force feeding her baby, he’d spit the food out, and she’d shove it back in and cover his mouth. The video was captured by (I believe) the child’s cousin. CPS in that case refused to look into it any further and labeled it as “bad parenting; but unabusive”. HOW IN THE HELL was that ok and this got the children taken? At least in this video no one put thier hands on the child!!! IDT either case is ok or right but shit….

  • Kelly Melton

    Right? Who is she around that it’s “normal” for kids to cuss??? My son will repeat us once in a while, but we work on not saying it, and he knows if he says it(without us saying it first, bc I’m not going to punish him for parroting) his butt will be a little sore, or he gets in time out. This girl is just TRASH

  • Kelly Melton

    You missed the g

  • dixiegirl3179

    There are plenty of things wrong with this video, the diaper isn’t one of them. My son was 3 and a half before he was reliably dry all day long. That does not make me an irresponsible mom. I am very responsible and I was far from a teenager when I had my son. A mother’s ability is not measured by when he kid is potty trained. They get there when they’re ready. There is a child development expert that doesn’t recommend even starting until 3 years old. Thinking that a 2 year old should be out of diapers is how we end up with kids that are beaten to death for peeing their pants.

  • Kelly Melton

    Kids potty train on their own time. My son was almost 3& a 1/2. They all do things differently

  • dixiegirl3179

    Most 2 year olds I know are still in diapers unless they are getting pretty close to 3. There is nothing abnormal about that. My son is very smart and he was in diapers past 3, Every kid is different.

  • Ric Gillespie

    While it may not be “abnormal” for a two-year-old to still be wearing diapers, there’s also very little reason a child can’t be potty trained before then. My original question remains. You can agree or disagree. If you searched long enough, you’d probably find someone who doesn’t think this child’s behavior is “abnormal,” and I hope we all disagree with that.

  • Ric Gillespie

    The video properly demonstrates that, if worked with, this child can pick up on how to act rather vulgar. I find it difficult to believe his loved ones have spent anywhere near the same amount of time teaching him to use the potty, and no matter how intelligent a child is, they can’t pick up on anything they haven’t somehow been exposed to.

  • Ric Gillespie

    Unfortunately, I don’t see anything permanent resulting from this. Compared to what CPS powerless to protect children against (mostly, because of outdated notions of what a “family” is), this is relatively tame.

  • Taster’sChoice

    That’s been my experience as well. My little one is 6 and she wasn’t potty trained until closer to three. And I realize I’m probably biased but she’s probably the smartest little kid in her class.

  • Taster’sChoice

    Publicly condoned racism, huh? That happens daily, usually by the ones that are the biggest racists of all – Al and Jesse come to mind…

  • Kelly Eklectusbird

    Regardless of the environment they’re in, kids can still be in nappies at two years old.

  • Texas Ranger

    Bullshit? My point is if he was a white kid…it wouldn’t be posted as a “see what us cops gotta deal with?” I’m against how the kid is being taught…but the fucking cop union has no reason to make a point of it…none at all. I can cuss like a sailor since I was a kid…didn’t make me a thug.

  • technicolorpachyderms

    I’m with you all the way. I feel pretty strongly that “thug” used in this and many contexts is a code word for black, too. A comment above sort of accidentally shows this… They said “There is white trash as well as thug trash”.

  • technicolorpachyderms

    My cousins used to make me curse when I was little. They’d say stuff for me to repeat and laugh and laugh. Until my mom found out and flipped out at them. They were teenagers, it’s not as though they were giggling eight year olds. I fail to see how this sort of thing is going to turn anyone into an asshole. I think everyone is being more than a bit dramatic, here.

  • http://tempestletrope.typepad.com/blog Tempest Nightingale LeTrope

    One of my good friends from high school actually was a good mother at sixteen. Good teen mothers exist, not that I’m in any way encouraging anyone to become one. It’s a hard road.
    This idiot doesn’t sound like she’d be a good mother at any age. Teaching your kid to be a raging bully is not cute or funny.

  • http://tempestletrope.typepad.com/blog Tempest Nightingale LeTrope

    My son never acted like that. He was a sweet baby who grew up into a nice young man. Encouraging behavior of this nature isn’t going to make a child into a “man,” it will make him into thug, with no possible future except a criminal one. Maybe now that he has been removed from the situation, he will have a chance at not becoming what his idiot mother was encouraging him to be.

  • http://tempestletrope.typepad.com/blog Tempest Nightingale LeTrope

    I hate it when people drag race into it. If people think that this is “normal behavior” for someone by virtue of their skin color, then they are morons. Melanin does not turn people into low lives, nor does lack of melanin make them holy and virtuous. People are people. Their environments tend to make them what they become. Though I do tend to think that racists are less intelligent.

  • http://tempestletrope.typepad.com/blog Tempest Nightingale LeTrope

    Whether he’s wearing a diaper or not is irrelevant. Some children develop the muscle control and neurological signals that they need to use the bathroom later than others. It has nothing to do with intelligence or bad parenting skills. This aside, this young woman is an unfit parent.

  • http://tempestletrope.typepad.com/blog Tempest Nightingale LeTrope

    Are you the potty training expert, Sir? I do hope that I see your wonderfully informative books and videos on the subject by the time I have grandchildren! Surely your methods will revolutionize the world of potty training!

  • http://tempestletrope.typepad.com/blog Tempest Nightingale LeTrope

    Agreed with you on the cussing issue. My father (RIP) was a college professor, and when he’d get working on his weekend projects, words would come out of his mouth that could make the most salty of sea salts blush!

  • http://tempestletrope.typepad.com/blog Tempest Nightingale LeTrope

    Your cousins were teenagers, but they were your cousins, not your mother and her friends. There is more wrong here than encouraging a child to say bad words. They were also encouraging to behave violently, throwing chairs about and such. What is seen on the surface here is an indication of a much deeper problem.

  • Ric Gillespie

    Well, Tempest Nightingale LeTrope (if that is your real name), I’m no expert,
    but some who are (as well as scientific data) seem to support my wild notions – http://www.nytimes.com/1999/01/12/us/two-experts-do-battle-over-potty-training.html

  • Jessie

    Three other kids were removed from the home! I am hoping that they aren’t ALL the 16 year olds. But they probably are…. And I agree. That kid is too large to be wearing a diaper.

  • Jessie

    Most two year old BOYS are in diapers. Girls are much faster and smarter in that arena, thank you. I know of two 18-20 month old girls using the toilet right now.

  • Jessie

    A 14 year old gives birth and is a bad mom??? NO WAY! Shocking.

  • t3chsupp0rt

    This kid was already part of another story last October when someone shot through their door, hitting him and his mother (and they never found out who it was, supposedly). They’ve been moved around due to concerns about gang activity before, and they just keep getting into it. Taking the kid is absolutely the right thing to do here.

  • t3chsupp0rt

    When it is kept a dirty secret and no one wants to post things because it causes racial problems, you can be sure that it’s not the video being the cause of the problems. People need to be able to see this, and be held accountable, and yes, be made to feel ashamed if they are perpetuating this cycle of ignorance and nastiness.

    This kid wouldn’t even be able to make it through kindergarten like this. He’d get kicked out for a mouth like that within a few weeks of complaints from teachers and other parents. You think they’d be able to home school this kid properly? This kid is another DD story just waiting to happen. White people don’t get a pass, either.

  • Vesper B

    Sadly, many families do believe this is exactly how to make a boy into a “man.” The kid I mentioned above lives with his parents in a small ranch in Mexico. My uncle thinks it is perfectly normal for the boy to be cussing because it means he is “growing up.” The rest of his family in the ranch think it’s a riot: the American cousins are shocked. My uncle can’t understand why we don’t want to take the kid anywhere.

    I’m supremely careful not to curse in front of my kid (it’s difficult during the NFL/BPL seasons, but I manage). The closest thing he’s getting to do is spitting at people, but let me tell you: even that has been curbed.

  • Vesper B

    A little sore butt never hurt anyone, myself included.

    I’ve been known to cuss a blue streak but let me tell you: I still feel ill at ease to curse in front of children and in front of older adults, with my mom included. In fact, I had to translate the title “Memoirs of my melancholy whores” to her in Spanish and blushed wildly at the thought of saying “Whore” in Spanish. To her, it was hilarious. To me, it was embarrassing.

    I’d be humiliated beyond the pale if my son was caught cursing like this kid

  • Jessie

    I think the mothers who are defending the large child in diapers here are the parents of slow learners themselves.

  • Jessie

    I dunno. My hubby is Irish and let me tell you… Every other word coming out of everyone’s mouths over there is a curse word. Kids come outta the womb cursing! And they’re all really nice and intelligent people, in general. It’s only a form of expression really. And the words are only powerful if you make them powerful. Maybe it’s because I’m from Philly and there’s a lot of cursing there too, but f-bombs don’t bug me :-p

  • ultracreep

    I see I’ve been downvoted by the “keep them in diapers until they’re 4″ bunch. Nowadays it seems very popular to allow children to do things “on their own time” which basically leads to 4 year olds in diapers rolling along in strollers and kids even older than that still sucking pacifiers. I just personally think that’s bullshit, and you can downvote that too. Mwah.

  • ultracreep

    Oh fuck off lady. Seriously. I’m sorry you and a million other “modern” moms seem to think it’s ok to keep children “babies” for as long as they feel like being one. If you attempt to potty train at a fairly early age, most normal children “get the trick” and it doesn’t have to involve beating them or punishment. I really hit a nerve with the “let them do things at their own pace” crowd I see.

  • ultracreep

    Yeah let’s just wait around till they’re 5 and they finally “feel” like going to the toilet. Jesus. I’ll bet your kids sucked a pacifier until first grade too, because they “felt like it.”

    You, can fuck off. Kids are not little robots who cater to your every growth whim. God, I would hate to be your child.

  • Texas Ranger

    But it wasn’t a secret, it was on Facebook, where the Union found it. The Union took it upon themselves to post it so people would feel sorry for the circle-jerk of crime they are dealing with. It served no purpose, solved nothing, maybe got a few donations to the Union, and that’s it. If anything it’s proof that the cops profile by race. Which last time I checked, makes these jokers criminally and civilly liable. The Union has proved nothing to me, other than a kid can cuss, doesn’t make him a criminal in the future…as for DD…don’t see any way you can make that determination…he’s still shittin in diapers for pete’s sake.

  • technicolorpachyderms

    It was the mother’s brother, she wasn’t in the room. She says that she doesn’t allow him to curse and wasn’t aware that it was happening. I would hardly label knocking a chair over “violent behaviour”. I just can’t get upset about this. I don’t condone it, certainly. But neither did the mother.

  • Jessie

    No problem here! For all the fast learners, there will always be slow learners. Variety is the spice of life :-p

  • Jessie

    Why, because then you would be intelligent and motivated and ahead of your peers in the game of life?

  • t3chsupp0rt

    Got the kid out of the house, the best that could have come from it. Got everyone good and pissed off that this is going on, as well they should be, if they happened to be ignorant of it or had forgotten that this is how some people try to ‘raise’ their kids. And yes, exactly, it WAS on facebook, and it was findable by the Union. It was a public video. If they didn’t want the nation seeing it, they shouldn’t have posted it, that’s the kind of thing that goes viral. Sad thing is, that was probably the intention of the poster anyway.

    If there was a similar video of white people or purple people or green people doing anything similar, I’d say the same thing – post that shit, hold the scumbag parents publicly accountable. What chance in life does this kid have in going to school, finishing school, having a job, with the people he lives with now? They’re STILL involved with gangs even though they’ve been moved because of that before. Sending this kid to school as he is now would have him promptly kicked out. The kid has already suffered a bullet wound, they’d already been relocated for their safety – they were already well on the radar of the law.

    NOT posting something just because it is about black people would be every bit as racist as posting it because it IS black people. You don’t improve race relations by pretending there isn’t a problem and just ignoring it. Would it have been better if it was white people? No, absolutely not, because it would still be some innocent child having his future fucked up by the people who are supposed to be raising him into a person who can maybe take care of himself some day instead of another liability to society. Parents don’t generally go from absolutely terrible to even halfway decent just on their own or because someone tells them they should, or when their kid reaches a certain age. There’s no reason to believe any of this would have changed as the kid got older. Gang members still had access to the child, and the mother wasn’t even monitoring these interactions. Yes, I think that sets up just about any kid for a future of incarceration.

    What you are not getting is it was posted by a Police UNION. They are not the cops…but the UNION for the cops. Cops post it, I don’t care. UNION posts it and that’s way outta their element. Next thing is the UAW going to start posting videos on people that get their car repo’d? I’d hope they’d stick to their reason for being and protect the workers rights, not make judgements on peoples child rearing abilities.

  • Buffettgirl

    We “youngests” do and don’t get the fuzzy end of the lollipop stick. We get completely shafted in early childhood because Mom us just too busy to breathe for the most part. Soon though, we get a little more attention once Mom realizes one day “Whoa, this is it. This is my baby. I’d better revel in every moment while I can.” I think it balances out for the most part. What part of Eire is your lad from?

    If it was an outside source and not the parents, then nope. That could happen right where I live. And I hate to think some official could waltz in and take my child because a stranger shot a gun in my shitty neighborhood and it tagged my kids foot.

  • warwitheastasia

    “If there are adults around”… that’s the problem: there’s no adults. This 16 year old has a baby. Babies raising babies. No mention of a father. I read an article the other day saying young black men (18-35) are more likely to be incarcerated than employed. If this baby’s throwing up gang signs, do you think his (probably 16 year old) “father” was too busy working to be in the video? Or too busy being in jail?

  • JohnQknowitall

    Willie Hamilton, president of the community activist group Black Men United, said the union crossed a line by posting the video. Mr. Hamilton forgot to say that by sticking his nose into a situation and calling it racism he was able to boost his donations for the next 5 days.

  • CT

    I am an adult and I DO have this sort of potty mouth — BUT I do not swear at home (neither does my spouse)and obviously do not swear around my sons. They will be 6 soon and as far as far I know, they have not used any curse words to date. Though we do have a recent obsession with adding the word, fart, into any conversation that we feel we can sneak it in. Trying to put the kibosh on that one.

    Is it wrong that I had a BLAST on Christmas saying things to my almost 10 year old nephew just to see him squirm? With direction from my sister (his mother) I would walk up behind him and whisper “Hey, Bubba, penis!” (or whatever the word of the moment was) and he would collapse on the floor and wriggle with utter embarrassment and glee. It was the best when his 71 year old Nanny (that’s what he and his sister call their Grandma) said “ANDREW – they’re just words! Vagina…” Damn, I thought we’d all die laughing at his reaction to that one!

    These comments about the little boy not being potty trained is foolishness. I have two little boys who were then and still are very smart and neither were potty trained until they were almost three. Now the behavior on the other hand is despicable.

    Actually, the earlier you start, the longer it takes and the kid ends up completely potty trained at about the same age as the kid who was started later.

    Agreed my oldest son is autistic and didn’t potty train fully till 5.

    I tried to potty train my kids starting at 2. It took them until almost 4 to be fully potty trained. 3 is the average age for most toddler boys to be potty trained. Do you have kids? My guess is no. It sounds like you don’t even like children. And just want to complain about other people’s parenting.
    Go find a story without kids in it and find something to bitch about that you’re not ignorant to.

    Are you suggesting because the child was black the video shouldn’t have been posted because it promotes a stereotype?
    Perhaps behaving in this manner depicts a certain stereotype and white kids are just as capable of it.

    Any kid is capable of it. I just don’t feel that the police UNION has any business posting stuff to make them feel better. Police are not judges. They do not determine a persons guilt. They are saying the this kid will be a problem for the poor officers in the future….and they cannot fuckin know that, They cannot assume that…..unless there’s a time machine in Omaha.

    I haven’t used a stroller for my two year old in over a year. He can walk, so he walks. I never breastfed because I couldn’t, but it’s not your business how people feed their kids any damn way, as long as it’s not meth or bath salts.
    And you CAN NOT make a kid potty train when they don’t want to. Check out this very website for “beating your kids because they can’t potty train by one year old” stories. They abound.
