CLARK COUNTY, Ohio – Charges are pending following a disturbing Snapchat post in which a man can be seen kneeling on the neck of a white baby. In a reference to the George Floyd case, the photo is captioned “Blm now mf” and shows a man – identified as Isaiah Jackson by the Gateway Pundit – kneeling on a screaming child’s neck. The incident was first reported on by Vincent James of RedElephants.
The photo was taken on Monday, July 20th, according to the child’s grandmother. The child was reportedly with his mother, who is dating Isaiah Jackson, the grandmother – who told the Gateway Pundit that she chooses not to named for the sake of the child’s safety – stated on Facebook.
The grandmother also provided the Gateway Pundit with screenshots of the mother defending the photo. In them she can be seen calling the person confronting her “ignorant” while stating that the child wasn’t being hurt. The mother can be seen holding the child’s hands behind his back in the photo.
The infant was reportedly taken to the ER following the incident, where x-rays showed that there were no injuries. The grandmother told the Gateway Pundit that the child is doing well. “He better be glad nothing bad happened to my grandson and he better hide from all the people who will be coming for him when he gets out of jail,” she said of Jackson.
According to the Clark County Police, charges are pending against 20 year-old Isaiah Jackson. He was booked in the county jail on a probation violation and will face additional charges for the incident.
Child Protective Services are also involved, according to the grandmother, who called for the mother to be charged as well. “She should have been charged,”, the grandmother said.
