Police say 9-year-old boy who stars and raps in a sexually suggestive video is a victim of child abuse or neglect.
The boy nicknamed “Lil Poopy” is described by his family as a “thriving, well-adjusted fourth-grader with a good home life, good grades and musical talent.”
The lawyer for the family, Joseph Krowski Jr claims that the police decision to investigate is “racially-tiged” and that the people who watched it “doesn’t understand rap.”
“This isn’t some child left alone that’s not going to school.”
He said that the videos content is protected by the First Amendment.
Brockton police told state child welfare officials to look into a possible child abuse case after viewing Lil Poopy videos and a feature story about the boy in the local newspaper The Enterprise.
Police said that they haven’t filed any charges, but Department of Children and Families confirmed that they are looking into concerns about the little boy’s welfare.
Officials will interview everyone who lives in the child’s home and possibly others who has contact with the 9-year-old boy.
DCF spokeswoman Cayenne Isaksen said, “The filers of this report wanted to make sure the child is being properly cared for…”
“So the department will look into all aspects of this.”
