    I had no idea ‘Baby Shark’ was used this way

  • mr blue on September 13, 2022

    Out of all the songs they could of used they chose baby shark thats messed up…. This type of stuff is why criminals stay criminals or go on to do worse things…. I think they should release the information of the officers involved and let street justice be dealt preferably the location where they live, family contacts and so on

    Have you met prison guards? They have the IQ of… well, a prison guard. Authoritative individuals are commonly just idiots in a position of power.
    My father was a drill sergeant in the army, and had the same disposition.
    He only got respect because people feared him. He was dumb as bag rocks, but as long as the soldiers obeyed him, he felt powerful.

    Anyone just applying to be a prison guard, should be a red flag.
    Creepy people!

    The inmate was MURDERED , no question about it. And other inmates that are involved in the lawsuit will DIE before the lawsuit is finalized. Law enforcement in Oklahoma have a way of killing of people.

    Died like Epstein!?
    I swear there is no absolute difference between the sheep (you) and the devil's you support (gov).

  • C. Haze on September 13, 2022

    So hes a jailbird. Who cares

  • Alex Carling on September 13, 2022

    Feed those pigs to the baby shark!

  • power 17 on September 13, 2022

    Punch of sick cops .

  • Gena Rivera on September 13, 2022

    5 minutes of “baby shark” is enough to drive me cr@zy so I can’t imagine hours of that 😩

  • TheOnlyCus on September 13, 2022

    I too have been tortured by baby shark

  • Laura and the Party Animals on September 13, 2022

    What makes y’all think that anybody killed this guy? Look around and you will see people starting to die, young people, people who were very healthy and never had any issues. Do you not see what is really happening? Maybe you should blame it on big Pharma and look into what vaccines this guy took. Look at all the factors before you just assume things

  • Christopher Brown on September 13, 2022

    They murdered him of course. You can't trust white people. Especially when it comes to money. Smh

    They put them drugs and guns on him 💯

  • Rob Tarqs on September 13, 2022

    Baby shark torture case wow insane !!!

  • Primalxbeast on September 13, 2022

    So I'm the only person who clicked on the video wondering how there was a lawsuit over the torture of a baby shark and how that lead to someone dieing?

  • El Gallito Del Palenque on September 13, 2022

    They hit without leaving marks hellooo

  • Nick Ader on September 13, 2022

    every great society that has collapsed did so under the corruption of conservatism

  • Jihan Jude on September 13, 2022

    Definitely foul play. The governor needs to get involved to maintain integrity in the justice system. These inmates were at the mercy of the defendants they filed a complaint against. And these defendants violated the 8th amendment. Everyone in that correctional facility needs to be fired.

    I'm so scared 💀💀💀💀💀

  • Sharon Parkinson on September 14, 2022

    If he was a quiet and smart man then why was he a criminal in the first place???????

  • lizzys BEAUTY show etc. on September 14, 2022

    They should bring these types of jails to New York and Chicago and play baby shark shark for hours and hours on end lol criminals need this

  • Jurxnator 27 on September 14, 2022

    I knew that song will end killing someone one day

  • Klay Staccs on September 14, 2022

    Family is about to get paid

  • SGT Stedanko on September 14, 2022

    This is just the tip of the iceberg.
    This goes on ALL OVER and barely gets any coverage.
    This world is beyond saving.

  • Cattle Black on September 14, 2022

    Oklahoma jail kills atleast 30 inmates a year by shower falls, minimum 🧐
    Use to the sheriff's wife owned the commissary inside the jail, probably still does🧐
    About like ole Frank Keating owned a prison while imprisoning folks 🤦🏾‍♂️
    That facility is just a racket!

  • Looks Like A 2006-2012 The Onion Skit !

  • ParallelActor50 on September 16, 2022

    I remember this, happy ending turning sad now. Hope they resolve it. I'd hate being forced into listening to baby shark none ending.

  • ‌mj on September 17, 2022

    This is insane

  • youssef Al fateh on September 18, 2022


  • casper daghost on September 19, 2022

    We just gonna let them or an agency like them investigate this (half @$$ed) and pretend that nothing can b done. Shut down the jail and stop sending police out, adding more to the problem, until the jail has had a full investigation (don't worry about tickets and ish until u can house these ppl). All the staff should b being housed there (n jail). Until, this problem is solved. There needs to be arrest made on the staff, all the way to the top, until they start giving each other up. Js they state officials, prob, been doing this for years. If u talk to the ppl. That's what they say. Js

    Whe it was used against guantanamo bay detainees everyone looked the other way! This what happens when people allow injustice to happen only because it is not happening to them! It comes around and haunt them.

  • Bryson Hall on September 20, 2022

    They tortured him with “baby shark”?! That’s worse than water boarding
