Isaiah Jackson just got the worst kind of bad news when a stunt to promote Black Lives Matter backfired and he ended up in jail.
His plan to promote Black Lives Matter — kneeling on a White 2-year-old’s neck – quickly went viral but the cops also took an interest and investigated. The child was unharmed and the photo was a cheap stunt but the cops didn’t care.
According to reports by Dayton, Ohio, TV stations, the 20-year-old Mr. Jackson was arrested after being identified by the cops and is currently in custody.
A man shown on social media kneeling on the neck of a 2-year-old boy is in jail.
Photos of a man kneeling on the child with the banner comment “BLM Now” had been circulating on social media before The Clark County Sheriff’s Office began investigating.
“Two divisions of the Clark County Sheriff’s Office immediately began an investigation to determine the location of the incident and the identities of the individuals involved,” a sheriff’s office statement reads.
Deputies were able to make contact with the mother, the child shown in the photo and the man also in the photo.
That man, identified as 20-year-old Isaiah Jackson, was arrested immediately for a Parole Authority holder from the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction.
The child, whose identity is not being released, was taken to a hospital, where he was found to have not been injured because of the incident shown in the photo.
The sheriff’s office says the child’s mother was unaware of the incident or the photo until the sheriff’s office began investigating.
