On Tuesday, a judge granted Katrina Kennedy Flores supervised visitation – in a therapeutic setting.

The video went viral on Facebook in May.

The woman who recorded the 16-minute video said Kennedy Flores hit her 2-year-old son, shook him violently and threatened to kill him.

In the video, shot in April, the toddler could be seen crying and the mother is seen throwing something into a playpen.  Kennedy can be heard accusing the toddler of losing a cellphone charger.

Kennedy was arrested and charged with misdemeanor counts of child abuse and the judge ordered her to have no contact with her son.

The boy, who isn’t being identified, was placed in the care of Kennedy’s younger half-sister, Nicole.

“I confronted her.  I was like what is wrong with you, like you really did this over a charger?”  Nicole said after she said she watched the video online.

The woman who shot the video has also been charged with child abuse.  She’s accused of not doing anything to stop the alleged abuse.  The woman claimed she cannot walk or move and feels bad that she did not do more.

After the video was posted, viewers shared their outrage in hundreds of Facebook messages, comments and emails.

The video inspired a group of strangers who found each other on Facebook to try to change the punishment for child abuse.  They want child abuse to be a felony charge instead of a misdemeanor.

Kennedy Flores has another pre-trial hearing scheduled in October.

NY Has Double Standard For Child Abuse?

State Senator says Weiner should be probed
for Child Abuse

New York  –  A veteran New York politician is demanding city authorities open a probe into the household of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin for potential child abuse and neglect.

Bronx state Sen. Ruben Diaz Sr., who is also a pentecostal minister, said he was repulsed by the shocking revelation that Weiner sexted a woman a lurid crotch shot of himself with his 4-year-old son in the picture.

“You should know that the Monday, Aug. 29, 2016 cover of the New York Post shows a photo of former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner in his bed alongside his toddler, while doing things that no child should see on camera in Anthony Weiner’s sexual exchange with a woman,” Diaz wrote in an open letter calling on authorities to take action.

“The photo and story worry me as a Senator, a Minister, a parent, and a grandfather, because I believe that the disregard for any boundaries of sexual activity with a child present is incredibly inappropriate, and could have a harmful impact on the child.”

He said, “I urge the City of New York’s Administration for Children’s Services to investigate this case carefully and thoroughly … I am sure that the Administration for Children’s Services will consider how Anthony Weiner’s continued perverted activity that we have all seen over the years in his texting or Twittering is a harbinger of possible future child abuse or neglect, especially when he does this with his child next to him in his bed.”

Diaz said there should no double standard when it comes to child abuse.

“I am pretty sure that if this kind of information was shared with the public and if the adult in the photo with a toddler was Black or Hispanic, the City of New York’s Administration for Children’s Services would have been knocking on the door to investigate possible child abuse to remove the child.”

Diaz called Weiner’s perversion “a very sad situation” and said he would pray for both parents to “acknowledge the harmful effect of this continue activity on their young child, and they will address it with professional help before their child is further victimized by it.  I also pray that the Administration for Children’s Services will do their job.”
