As the brutal whipping begins, Powell is overheard saying, “Watch this ass whipping this gangster is going to get.” The mom then beats the boy as he firmly clutches onto the arms of a chair. Prosecutors maintain that the beatings went beyond what is considered reasonable disciplining of a child and spills over into criminal assault.
At the end of the disturbing video, the boy is seen squirming in pain. Flint police were summoned after getting complaints from people who saw the video making rounds on Facebook.
The boy and infant were placed in child protective custody. Meanwhile, Powell is being held in jail on $7,500 bond; Taylor and Felton’s bonds were set at $8,500 each.
