Omaha police union reposts obscene toddler video on its website; 2nd viral video in 10 months to draw fire

Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer, above, who has no
control over what the police union posts on its web site,
said this: "I strongly disagree with any postings that may
cause a divide in our community or an obstacle to police
community relations."
Some cops are chagrined, starting with police chief Todd Schmaderer.
     After KETV asked him why the post was still up after stirring up controversy on CNN, Omaha Police Officer's Association President John Wells defended the video by saying "We gotta find a way to address this," meaning a criminal culture.
     From where AKSARBENT sits, Wells and his fellow officers could start addressing crime by finding out who attacked Ryan Langenegger months ago, after an assault on him by Pepperjax' Grill patrons in Omaha's heavily trafficked Old Market when he stood up for two gay friends, a case still unsolved.
     The Omaha Police Union posted the video of a black toddler Tuesday, one day after the Nebraska ACLU sued the department over an incident depicted in a viral video last spring.
