    When I saw this video on CNN Headline News, as I awoke to get ready for work, it immediately became apparent to me that it's a perfect example expressing the abnormal relationship our people have toward each other. It did not shock me anymore than racism or sexism does, because I understand the unnatural nature of our relationships. And until we as a people accept the latter diagnosis as a problem more malignant than anything else we face, we will not appreciate DustyElbow's prognosis that as a people we'll perish.

    Kids given pot in video, officials say

    Fort Worth Star-Telegram

    The video contains disturbing images of the young children being badgered into smoking a marijuana cigar, commonly referred to as a 'blunt,'

    WATAUGA -- A 17-year-old man was arrested after Fort Worth police searching his Watauga home on a burglary warrant found a videotape that appeared to show someone helping his 2- and 5-year-old nephews smoke marijuana, officials said.

    Demetris McCoy remained in the Tarrant County Jail on Friday evening on suspicion of injury to a child, a third-degree felony. Bail was set at $150,000, county court records show.

    The two children were taken from their home and placed in the care of Child Protective Services last week, spokeswoman Marissa Gonzales said.

    Watauga police were not available for comment late Friday.

    However, a news release indicated that Fort Worth police found the video Feb. 22 on a camera seized in connection with area burglaries they suspected McCoy and Vanswan Polty, 18, of Fort Worth had committed.

    Polty was arrested on separate charges, including burglary, and was free on $22,000 bail, court records show. He had not been arrested in connection with the Watauga incident late Friday, county court records show.

    Fort Worth police contacted investigators with the Watauga Department of Public Safety, who reviewed the evidence found at the home in the 6000 block of Hickory Hill Road. Police determined that the lengthy video depicted two children being taught to smoke marijuana and encouraged to 'get high,' the news release states.

    'The video contains disturbing images of the young children being badgered into smoking a marijuana cigar, commonly referred to as a 'blunt,'' the release states.

    McCoy was arrested Feb. 23, court records show.

    In one frame, a man can be seen placing what appears to be a marijuana cigarette into a baby's mouth, and in another frame one child is smoking what appears to be a marijuana cigarette on his own.

    Because the suspects are younger than 21, second-degree felony charges of delivery of a controlled substance or marijuana to a minor could not be filed, officials said. Watauga investigators were looking into whether others were involved in the activity shown in the videotape.

    Shocking Video: Man Teaches Boys To Smoke Pot

    (CBS) WATAUGA, TX. - A Texas teenager has been jailed after police found a home video that appears to show him teaching his very young nephews to smoke marijuana.

    According to police, Demetris McCoy, 17, is seen on the video placing a marijuana joint into the mouth of his 2-year-old nephew. In another scene, the boy's 5-year-old brother can be seen smoking on his own. Police say the video shows McCoy lighting the joints and encouraging the boys to "get high."

    McCoy faces a felony charge of causing injury to a child and was jailed on a $150,000 bond.

    Police found the video February 22nd while investigating McCoy and an 18-year-old acquaintance in connection with some area burglaries.

    The children have been placed in the custody of Child Protective Services.
