Clark County, OH - A disturbing image of an infant pinned to the ground while a man kneels in his or her neck, has been circulating on social media. In the photo, an approximately one year old infant is being pinned to the ground by one adult while another adult male kneels on the baby’s neck, making a hand signal and staring at the camera. The infant appears to be crying and has a red face.

The attack on the child appears to be racially motivated. The caption on the photo reads “BLM now MF”, presumably “Black Lives Matter now motherf***er”. The baby and the man are in the same positions as George Floyd and former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin during Floyd’s final moments as captured on film by bystanders. The child’s relationship to the adult in the photo are unknown at this time.

WHIOTV7 reported that Clark County investigators are looking into the incident. Charges have not been filed, no arrests have been made at this time. “We are looking into this case, however it is still an active investigation. At this point we are actively looking into it and we are VERY early on into this investigation,” Maj. Chris Clark said in a statement to WHIOTV7.
