Orlando, Fl – Devery Michael Broox, 25 uploaded a video of himself disciplining his
son mentee for misbehaving in school on September 15, 2011. If you recall the video I posted of a man shaving his sons head, whipping him and having him do exercise as a punishment for acting up in school.
On September 26, 2011. Devery Broox was charged with a felony count of child cruelty without great harm, he was booked into the Orange County jail, where he was later released after posting $1000 bond.
Orlando cops busted Devery Broox after learning about the video via a tip originally received by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. A police report (in the gallery at the top) describes the 25-year-old Broox as a “mentor” of the seven-year-old boy, with whom he has “no familial relationship.”
While the boy initially claimed that marks and scars on his legs were caused by a bicycle accident, he later “disclosed that Devery ‘whips’ him ‘all the time.’” The child told cops that “Devery made him tell the story about the bicycle because ‘he don’t wanna go to jail.’”
When questioned by police, Broox admitted posting the video on YouTube and Tumblr, but claimed that the off-camera beating was “staged.” When officers disclosed that the child said he was beaten by Broox, the suspect “repeated several times that he will take responsibility for his actions,” adding that he regretted putting the video online.
Brooks Facebook page lists him as a spoken word performer who is employed by the United States Navy.)
In the 7:45 minute video Broox haphazardly shaved the boys hair. Then he whipped him off camera with a belt before forcing the youngster to run laps and perform push ups outside in the courtyard.
As a final humiliation, Broox sent the video to WSHH to publicly embarrass the misbehaving child. Some non creditable sources say that the child is currently in the custody of child protective services…
At this point I am still annoyed by the ignorance by this man to think he could upload such a video to WSHH and not be arrested for the acts portrayed on the video. I guess he was more concerned with reaching 8 minutes of hood fame… Not only was the incident uncalled for and disrespectful to himself and the child, not to mention a act passed down from slavery. It was disrespectful to the law. The law is not blind and yes they have access to the internet just like you do.
