*A disturbing video has surfaced that shows a Memphis, Tenn. mother in the throws of child abuse as she hurls her 19-day old son away from her like the trash on the floor while telling the man off camera to say “In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.”
The video was revealed on Friday (July 24).
The footage, which shows the mother calling on God, also shows another older child, crying frantically, who has been sitting on the woman’s lap being encouraged to kick the infant; yet screaming “I don’t want to.” The infants cries are heart wrenching, but the abuse continues as the woman is seen dragging him around by his arm.
The identity of the woman has not yet been revealed. But what is even more shocking (if that is possible) is who was filming the 13-minute video: the child’s father, who is heard saying, “I ain’t got nothing to do with this.”
The man didn’t physically make a move to stop the woman from harming the child. Eventually, he and the mother began shouting at each other, and he pleaded with her to stop and then called police, according to Fox13.
When the Memphis police arrived on the scene they apprehended the mother and took her in for a psychiatric evaluation. Family members do say that the woman is mentally ill and had apparently stopped taking her meds because she feared they were “…bringing harm to the baby.”
Lily Moore, the infants grandmother, told Fox 13, “Knowing my daughter, that was not my normal daughter.”
