Restore Pride In Parenting; End Child Abuse & Neglect
My second reaction was extreme anger, wanting to fill a Smurf bat with lead and use it to inflict harm on the adults who did nothing to protect either of these children from severely emotionally damaged adults who encouraged this criminal assault.
Then I took a few deep breaths, realizing that reacting to violence with anger and violence is not going to protect either of these children from the emotional and physical damage inflicted on them by immature, irresponsible adults.
Cursing at and name-calling the adults is not going to protect abused, neglected and maltreated children from emotionally damaged adults appearing in this recorded criminal assault on a five-year-old child.
However, sharing this video with as many Americans as possible, letting America see first hand the dysfunction and PARENTAL INTRODUCED obstacles many children in African American communities have to deal with on a daily basis when raised and nurtured by mentally impaired/damaged African American men and women, might wake-up America to the DECADES-LONG EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL ABUSE that causes peaceful people from all American communities, including police officers, to fear and be wary of American people of African descent.
Folks, we need to STOP IGNORING the childhood abuse inflicted on many African American children by their immediate caretakers, and protect them from the madness of many emotionally damaged and mentally impaired adults who themselves are victims of Child Abuse and Neglect.
America needs to re-examine our child abuse laws, strengthening them to include single moms who believe they have a right to introduce multiple children to a life of pain and struggle.
After viewing this horrific criminal assault on a child by a child, I expect there will be people who angrily reply to this discussion.
However, angry replies are not going to protect children. Ignorant, immature name-calling will only serve to further alienate emotionally damaged, dysfunctional adults who have little respect for human life or value human life in the same manner most Americans value human life.
I would like to read constructive comments and suggestions for protecting children from the cycle of CHILDHOOD ABUSE and NEGLECT that has deprived countless American children of African descent from experiencing a safe, fairly happy American kid childhood.
Victims of Child Abuse:
Read popular American rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur (Lesane Parish Crooks; June 16, 1971 – September 13, 1996) lyrics to learn about his love-hate relationship with his mom, his great disappointment with his dad, and about Tupac’s frequent suicidal thoughts.
Read about how Tupac’s drug addicted mother accepted proceeds of the harmful anti-social acts Tupac raps/writes about committing against his peaceful neighbors. I have to tell you, reading Tupac’s lyrics brings back a lot memories of the horrific emotional child abuse I witnessed during the nearly twelve year I provided police services to Shawn Carter’s community.
Shawn “Jay Z” Carter (born December 4, 1969) is another victim of child abuse/neglect who raps/writes about the physical harm and fear he caused to his peaceful neighbors and community.
Reading Shawn “Jay Z” Carter describe the pain he caused to his neighbors and community, brought back painful memories, causing me experience much of the same anxiety and pain I experienced from personally witnessing the physical and emotional pain young Shawn Carter caused to individuals as well as an entire housing complex and surrounding neighborhoods.
In 1987, the same year emotionally depressed 2015 Grammy winner Kendrick Lamar was born, songwriter Suzanne Vega wrote a song about child abuse and VICTIM DENIAL that was nominated for a Grammy.
Suzanne nailed it, parents and caregivers do the most horrific things to their kids, yet many kids will defend their abusers, blaming themselves for their “blues,” bruises and injuries before admitting a parent/caretaker harmed them.
“Yes I think I’m okay I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say
And it’s not your business anyway”
