Man, 20, seen kneeling on crying two-year-old boy’s neck in BLM stunt has been arrested
An American man who sparked outrage for kneeling on a crying two-year-old boy’s neck in a Black Lives Matter stunt, has been arrested.
20-year-old Isaiah Jackson was recently arrested and detained after the provocative photo went viral online.
The photo shows the shirtless Black man kneeling on the neck of a White toddler while another person held his arms behind his back, in the same position that led to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis back in May.
He captioned the photo: “Blm now mf.”
According to WHIOTV, the child was transported to a hospital but didn’t suffer any injuries from the sick incident.
The sheriff’s office said the child’s mother was unaware of the incident or the photo until the sheriff’s office began investigating.
Investigators say they have prepared a case against Jackson and is awaiting the Clark County Prosecutor’s Office to determine “the scope and breadth of the felony charges that will be supported.”
