You very well might have seen this video already. We saw it in our feed a couple of days ago but hesitated on doing a post because we didn’t have any context as to where it happened or why police were there. Now we know, thanks to Alpha News:

Sheila Qualls writes:
It is a foreshadowing of poverty, prison, and even death. It tells the story of children — who through no fault of their own — have been corrupted and abandoned by a system that places no value on the traditional nuclear family.
When Minneapolis police officers showed up in St. Paul last week to execute a search warrant for a murder suspect, they were met by toddlers — some still in diapers — who punched, kicked, cursed, and threw rocks at them. (Alpha News is only publishing 30 seconds of the video, but it goes on for another two minutes.)
The behavior of these children is eerily similar to the behaviors of rioters who burned and looted Minneapolis two years ago.
Children who can’t read or cross the street unattended hurled profanities and unabashed disrespect at law enforcement officers.
As they cussed, berated, and struck police officers with their fists, a bystander can be heard in the background encouraging the children by saying “Oreo head,” in reference to the black police officer at the scene.
This is a problem.
We need to solve it.

It's sad, this kid probably won't make it through the teenage years, and his family will be on TV saying what a good kid and didn't deserve whatever happened. Maybe someone else will intervene along the way and give him a chance.

They don’t even have clothes or shoes on, so let’s not pretend these kids are coming from a loving environment. This is unacceptable

Hate is taught.

These kids will be lucky to see their 18th birthday.

Been watching it since the mid 60's. Walking on eggshells & it keeps getting worse.

I've seen stuff like this before in the hood. It normally progresses to CPS being called in and finding a lot of stuff wrong with the mother, then the kids get removed.

I can think of no better way to consign kids to a life of misery and shame than to teach them to relate to police (or any authority, for that manner) in such a twisted way.
Short of God’s miraculous intervention, they have no hope of charting a higher, more hopeful course.

Wait. I see something in my crystal ball. It's coming into focus. One sec. Yep, here it is. 17 years into the future. Looks like the cops are trying to pull him over for improper lane change. He's having none of it. Won't stop. Oh no, now he's shooting at police! Didn't end well.

Some of us have used terms like savage and feral. I was wrong. This is behavior learned from adults.

Intervention and re-education for these children would be invaluable. The visual representation and implications is disturbing.

Imagine what it's like to be a child who has to go to school with them.

This makes me sad. Children will adopt the behavior that they see. These kids clearly have some wonderful role models at home. 😞

Not the child's fault. Children do as they taught and what they see. It's generational in every culture. I'm shocked anyone is surprised by this. Saddened, not shocked.

We should also point out that's two minority cops (one black, the other latino) those kids are mouthing off to. These people wanted more minority cops. They got them and this how they treat them.
You'll never win these people.

I see a couple of future statistics.

This reminds us of the summer of 2020, when we saw toddlers marching with their parents and yelling “f**k the police,” like it was the first words they’d learned.
‘This is scary’: Watch as these precious toddlers carrying protest signs are encouraged to say, ‘F**k the police’ https://t.co/J8CdTH9jVI
