A 20-year-old Ohio man was placed in jail after he was seen in a photo placing his knee on the neck of a white 2-year-old boy who is crying. The man, identified as Isaiah Jackson, also had a caption saying “BLM now mf.” He faces felony charges, but it’s unclear what those charges could be at the time.
Fox News reported that “patrol units were able to determine the location where the incident took place and made contact with both the mother and the child, as well as the male subject seen kneeling in the image, the Clark County Sheriff’s Office said in an update on Facebook Thursday. The relationship between Jackson and the child’s mother is unknown.”
The boy was taken to a hospital and has no injuries. The mother was not aware the photo had been taken.
Fox News continued their report, saying that “Jackson, a parole authority holder from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, was taken into custody and remains incarcerated in the Clark County Jail. He is waiting for the county prosecutor “to provide a determination on the scope and breadth of the felony charges that will be supported by that office for presentation in court,” according to the sheriff’s office.”
Here is the photo that circulated social media leading to the suspect being placed in jail and awaiting charges.
