Atlanta’s Fox News affiliate reports:
Police said they have arrested three people almost a month after a disturbing social media post was brought to investigator’s attention. Jordan Jarrode Richards-Nwankwo, 18, Lorkeyla Jamia Spencer, 19, and Brittney Monique Mills, 35, were all charged with cruelty to children.
Investigators said the video which was posted in June shows a young man with the word “gay” shaved on the side of his head, and also shows people yelling at and hitting the young man. According to the police report, someone in the video was yelling at the boy, “You still doing gay s—. You think I cut this in your head for no reason?”
“Investigators were made aware of a video posted on social media that depicted a young male abused and it appeared that he was being abused because of his sexual orientation,” said Chafee. FOX 5 has chosen not to show the disturbing video or link to it online.
Read the full article. My first report on this abuse is here. The video was reportedly posted online by the child’s mother but the linked report doesn’t specify the arrested persons’ relationship to him. Last month it was reported that the child was placed in protective custody.
SCOOP: A few weeks ago, a viral video showed a little boy in the Atlanta area being taunted and his supposedly because he is gay. The word “gay” was shaved into his head.
