Ohio man in custody after kneeling on crying white child's neck, praising Black Lives Matter

CLARK COUNTY, Ohio -- An Ohio man who was out on parole has been thrown in jail and awaits new felony charges after a photo circulated on social media showing him posing with his knee to the neck of a crying, white 2-year-old boy alongside a message referencing Black Lives Matter.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office first became aware of the photo circulating social media on Tuesday, July 21, and appears to be a direct reference to the former Minnesota officer, Derek Chauvin, who leaned on the neck of George Floyd before he died, sparking months of protests and unrest across the U.S.
