Baltimore County, MD - A disturbing viral video (posted below) of a woman beating her kids has sparked outrage after the video went on social media.
The short video clip shows a woman beating a terrified girl who appears to be cowering beneath a bunk bed. The woman then switched over to a young boy, picking him up by his neck and beating him about the head.
The woman then yells into the camera, threatening to "beat these kids to death."
Baltimore County Police Department received complaints about the video from people who had seen it on social media. Officers were able to track down the woman and brought her in for questioning. She was released without charges, but her children were taken into protective custody by Department of Social Services.
NY Post reports that Baltimore’s Child Abuse Center received nearly 200 e-mails about the disturbing video. They spoke with the agency's program and policy director.
“We’ve gotten a lot of responses from both media and concerned citizens,” Drew Fidler old NY Post. “People are concerned that this happens, that it goes viral, that so many people are watching. Unfortunately, we’re living in a time when we see so much violence on social media that it’s really overwhelming. And people don’t want to be passive bystanders, they want to help and they want to make a difference.”
