WATCH: Little boy punches and hurls abuse at police, calls them ‘Oreo head’ Video goes viral
A young boy was seen in a recent video cursing at Minnesota police officers as they headed to make an arrest. The terrifying video was posted on YouTube by local news outlet Alpha News on July 10.
The New York Post reports that the video was recorded in St. Paul last week. The boy was also seen in the video assaulting a police officer and cursing at him. According to Sheila Qualls’ account of the incident for Alpha News, police had a search warrant on a murder suspect when they arrived at the scene.
The original video was reportedly about 2 minutes long; however, Alpha News only published a 30-second excerpt. The publication claims that the boy involved hurled stones at police in the footage.
The police are abused by a little boy who refers to them as “Oreo heads”
The unnamed teen was visibly abusing police officers while wearing only his underwear. According to the footage, the little boy urged the officer to “shut up, bitch!”
The young man also made a joking comment about the officer’s shoes. The officers appeared to be dressed in ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) clothing, according to the New York Post. In reference to this, the young man made a comment about his boots, calling them “ugly church shoes”.
The young man from Minnesota also called one of the officers “Oreo head” and called out another of the officers. The term “Oreo head” was used to mock the policeman and imply that he preferred whites.
Possible explanations for the young child‘ tantrums
George Floyd’s death in Minnesota in 2020 as a result of police violence in Minneapolis has made headlines, and the young man may have seen older people in his life acting unfavorably toward police.
Three days before the incident, former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin received a 20-year prison sentence for his role in the second-degree murder of the deceased doorman and violation of Floyd’s constitutional rights.
Although there is no documented relationship between the young child and the intent to search for the murder suspect at the scene, it is plausible that the child knew the culprit.
Online users respond to the video.
Meanwhile, numerous internet users have also shared their thoughts on the trending video. Many tweets hinted that parental neglect was to blame for the child’s behavior.

I was taught from a young age that the police are terrible, commented one user. They are doomed to fail from the start.
It is natural for a young man who has been told that his uncle or father was killed by the boys in blue, according to another user. Absolutely normal.
Taught from a young age that the police are bad. They are set up for failure from the start.

I work with adolescent boys in a psychiatric facility, another member commented. This is a considerable portion of today’s youth. Race is not a factor at all.
It’s normal for a boy who has been told that his uncle or his father was killed by the boys in blue. Totally average.

Another person commented: “This is very unfortunate.” It is quite tragic that a person, who is obviously not a parent, could instruct his child to behave in such a way. He has learned all that is allowed to him!
This is so unfortunate. Absolutely sad that a person (not a parent, because obviously none of that is happening) could teach her child to act like this. He is a learned as much as is allowed !!
