Couple, Teenager Arrested After Posting Instagram Video of Little Boy Getting Kick in the Head With the Caption “The Kid Loves It!”
You’d think people who were engaging in criminal behavior would eventually learn that posting evidence of it on social media is just never a good idea. One couple, along with a teenager, did just that — posted a video of the teenager kicking a little boy in the head multiple times — and then promptly got arrested.
Two adults and a 15-year-old have been arrested after they allegedly posted videos showing them kicking a little boy in the head multiple times on Instagram, with the caption ‘the kid loves it.’
Police in Konawa, Oklahoma, said Joshua Whittington, 28, his girlfriend, Tracy Casteel, 33, and Casteel’s teenage son are in custody after the disturbing footage was made public Wednesday.
According to KFOR, the first of two disturbing videos shows the 8-year-old, clad in a football-helmet, being violently kicked in the head by the teenager who uses both feet for greater impact. After the second kick, the child starts to cry, The Ada News reports.
… In the second clip, uploaded shortly after, the teenager takes a running jump before kicking the boy in the head again with both feet and significant force.
I wonder if these idiots have any idea of the kind of damage they could have possibly done with this little “game” — or cared, even. There’s a special place in Hell for people who abuse children, and until they get there, hopefully these three will spend their time waiting behind bars.
