An Ohio man is in custody with charges pending after sharing a disturbing photo of himself kneeling on the neck of a baby, emulating the actions of former officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.
Shockingly, 20-year-old Isaiah Jackson was booked into Ohio’s Clark County Jail not for child abuse, but for violating parole. According to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, he remains in custody, pending charges related to his actions in the photo, which he captioned, “BLM now mf” [motherf******].
The Sheriff’s office reported that the two-year-old toddler seen in the photo was taken to a local hospital as a precaution but was not injured in the incident.
The baby’s mother is reportedly Isaiah Jackson’s girlfriend, who claims she was unaware that Jackson was abusing her child for the sick photo op.
According to WHIO7, the baby’s grandmother discovered the photo while scrolling through Facebook.
“That little boy didn’t deserve none of that,” Chastity Sowers told the outlet.
Sowers said the boy is with his father and is doing well.
As for the boy’s mother and Jackson, whom Sowers learned is the new boyfriend of her son’s former girlfriend, she said, “I hope they all get what they deserve.”
The disturbing photo went viral after being shared by Facebook user Vincent James.
“I want you to imagine for a moment the reaction if the child was black and the message said ‘MAGA’ instead of ‘BLM’,” tweeted the Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh regarding the incident. “It would be the only thing we talked about for a month.”
This dirtbag’s name is Isaiah Jackson. He’s supporting BLM by kneeling on the neck of a white toddler.

As if Jackson’s actions weren’t horrendous enough, he even got support for his vile photo.
Other social media users noticed that Brian Papin, a now ex-special-needs teacher at Cedar Grove High School in Atlanta, criticized Jackson for “doing it wrong.”

“Again! Your [sic] doing it wrong!” Papin wrote in a comment on the photo. “One knee on center of the back one on the neck and lean into it until death! You saw the video! Get it right or stop f***ing around !”
According to Disrn, however, it didn’t take long before Papin was reported by infuriated residents to local news outlets and school administrators. On Thursday, the Dekalb County School Board reported that it was investigating the allegation, and on Friday morning the school tweeted that Papin was no longer employed by the school:
DeKalb County School District (DCSD) administrators were made aware of the disturbing social media posts on July 22, 2020. The teacher is no longer employed with DCSD. Again, there is no place for racism or abuse in our school district.
