Toddler in 'thug' video taken into protective custody

The video contains profanity and discussions about sex and gang violence. While authorities found nothing criminal in the video, CPS and police removed the infant and three other children from the home yesterday over safety concerns.

The police union is being criticized for posting the video on its webpage calling it "the thug cycle." But, the police union says it did it to educate the public about the terrible cycle innocent kids are trapped in.
