Devery Broox
Devery Broox, 25, was supposed to be the mentor of a 7-year-old Orlando boy.

Instead, Broox allegedly beat and abused the boy, then decided to post a video of his "mentor" abilities on YouTube -- which included erratically shaving the boy's hair, putting him through "boot camp," and allegedly slapping the boy repeatedly off-camera.

According to a police report, someone who saw the YouTube video online called the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and the cops started investigating in late September.

The video, almost eight minutes long, starts off with some scrolling text that talks about the number of black men in jail, then cuts to Broox -- with a belt hanging around his neck -- talking to the boy, who appears to be sitting in a bathroom.

It starts with text that says "Step 1: Investigation," as he's talking to the boy about acting up in school.

Then he went on to "Step 2: The removal of SWAG," and proceeded to shave the boy's head in a ridiculous fashion. During this, he says, "After I finish whooping your ass, we gonna work out like we just came out of boot camp."

That was followed by "Step 3: Beat Dat ASS!!!" in which Broox told the boy to "drop your pants," as they moved off-camera. A cop wrote in the report he could hear a slapping noise as the child began to cry and scream, and Broox said to the boy "moves your motherfucking hand" as the boy screamed "It hurts!"

At that point, there's another cut in the video where the boy is outside, and by now, his head -- and eyebrows -- are completely shaven off as Broox instructs the boy to run some sprints and do some other exercises.

Soon after the video was discovered by authorities, the Department of Children and Families found out the identities of Broox and the boy and paid the boy's family a visit.

Both the boy and the mother told investigators that scarring on the boy's body were from a bicycle accident, although a doctor confirmed his findings were "positive" for physical abuse with a flexible object like a belt, according to police.

After talking to the boy again, he confirmed to a DCF investigator that Broox had whipped him with a belt, the report says, and that Broox had told him to lie to investigators so he didn't have to go to jail.

When Broox voluntarily went to the Orlando Police headquarters, he told the cops that his references to "beating" and "whipping" the boy in the video meant physical exercise, not actually harming him. Police say Broox told them the off-camera portion of the video was "staged" and that he never hurt the boy.

Cops consulted a doctor one more time, and he confirmed that the boy's most recent wounds were likely caused around the same time Broox told police he made the video, the report says.

Broox was booked into the Orange County Jail on one count of felony child abuse but has since posted bond.

The video appears to have been deleted from YouTube, although other websites managed to capture it:

being the descendents of slaves  u would think blacks  would be the last to beat a  child moreover i bet that dude has a ;past of his own to be concerned about..thanks to all who reported this video

This is cruel and psychologically damning to humiliate and beat that child like he did. The way he degrades and dominates the kid is perverse and I bet you he is a sadist and a pedophile.. Fucking chomo said to his friend they were going to take turns and told the boy to drop his pants.. He's not even his father, but is supposedly a "mentor." The boy is getting beaten by two grown men who are not related to him.. This video is disgusting.

The child's legal guardian is his great grandmother. She appears to be clueless.

Devery Broox coached the child to lie to the authorities and claim that his bruises were from a "bicycle accident."

A doctor examined him and recognized the signs of abuse.

The child told authorities that Devery beat him "all the time."

Everyone should read the "Devery Broox Affidavit" at http://tinyurl.com/7ku66jx

All they ASSES need to be in jail. Where is the GRANDMOTHER? Her ass need to be in jail too, and what about the mom, why where they to busy to discipline there own child.  What did they know about this bastard, why is it so easy to let someone else do the job a parent is suppose to do?  They need to check and see if both those guys where taking turns messing with that child's butt!  As much shit that's happening today you would think that parents should think about who the hell they are letting mentoring their kids, because evidently this mother and grandmother didn't give a shit!

that ignorrant sob should be locked up to never see the light again. that was horrible makes me sick to my stomach to hear that poor boys cries.how can a beast like that even be allowed to see the light of day, and what did the granma say about it.i hoe they turn him out will serve him right. this poor boy is probably going to have to o through therapy after this horrible inncendent.

How do we know that Devery Broox is not a sadist and getting his jollies by abusing this poor child?

The child told authorities that Devery 'whips' him "all the time."

The great grandmother who appears to be the boy's legal guardian seems to be unaware of this abuse of the boy by Mr. Broox. It was the great grandmother who sought out Devery Broox to be a "mentor" to the child.

Does this man, Devery Broox, have a criminal record?

He doesn't seem like a very good example for young people to follow.

It is appropriate that he was arrested. Since he is not a parent or guardian, he probably has legally abused this child.

All children need guidance that comes with discipline but Devery's form of discipline lacks any kind of nuturing and replaces it with humiliation. It's a known fact the child lives with his grandmother so maybe, just maybe if he took the time to talk to the child he would discover the child was acting out in school because he feels unwanted or guilty in some way not being with his parents. How else would a 7 year old express his emotions

So many soft people here. Discipline made me strong and a better person.

This man is ridiculous who shaves a childs head and spanks him and makes him do pushups an stuff thats not even his kid!!!!!

This is BS. Kid was growing up to be another ghetto punk, acting up and disrespecting his teachers in school. He gets an azz whoopin, which is what he derserved, and people get all up in arms about it. This is the same PC bull mess that spawned the rise of gangster rap, Teen Mom, and spoiled brats getting whatever they want in the supermarket.

"We should just take away their video games or put them in time out..."

Yea, right. Good luck controlling those kids at teenagers. This kid will never misbehave at school again. Mission accomplished.

When I was bad, my dad spanked me, and I stopped being bad. Kids are douches now b/c parents aren't allowed to spank them anymore. People didn't have these problems in the 50s and 60s.

Oh man the poor kid's face just breaks my heart. Kind of ironic how Broox was trying to keep him "away" from one of the "many black men in jail" and now he's going to be one of them.

7 year-old child. There is no argument to be made that there is a single second that is legitimate behavior towards this child in the video, except by sick, deranged people who cannot perceive abuse when they see it, and abuse includes the very first moments of the video.

He should be taken away from his Grandmother, she obviously couldn't raise her own kids since she ended up with their offspring.

You mean to tell me you dont whoop your kids and you just let them run around acting any kind of way??? Oh wait im sorry you all put them on punishment right take away a video game or ground them.....I think he did a good job I do however disagree with the way he was talking to him but other then that i saw nothing wrong i saw a concerned parent who wanted his son to do right in school so he can do better in life not some "thug" that just beats his kids for the hell of it.We all for the most part got Spnkings growing up and alot of us had them worse then others for you all to sit up here on your computers and call this man a 'thug" or a "monster" for disciplining his son the way he sees best when alot of people let there kids run around doing drugs having sex and breaking laws is wrong. I promise if that little boy grows up with out his father and discipline he will be another stereotypical black man we need more fatheres that take an Interest in there childrens life like this man here.But what do i know im just a concerned parent that wants to see our children come up with respect for others and them selves. you know the other day i saw this little boy flipping this older man off and no one did anything. Im just saying we cant just let our children think they can just do whatever and have no consequences.

My dad spanked me with the hand and the belt when I was bad and I think it was completely appropriate. I thank my dad for helping me be a hugely successful person and never commited a crime.

The little guys was crying so hard that it burned!  I can barely spank my kids let alone even imagine that. And why in the world would he think he had to hit him so many times?!   I was sobbing watching it.  That punishment did not fit that crime!  I'm not so sure a 7year old child is capable of committing that kind of crime to deserve that.   That video to date, was the most brutal, sickening video I have seen.   I hope they find his rotting corpse in some drainage ditch somewhere.

This guy is just a brutal thug.Is it any wonder the kid acts up? his mother is obviously a stupid piece of trash who cares more about this guy than her kid. Where the hell was she? I'd like to shave her head and beat HER skanky ho ass.

So people spank thier kids.  Big deal.  It isn't a beating.  You people who are all shocked don't know what beatings are.  I bet that boy will remember it the next time he screws off at school and think twice.

This man had NO RIGHT to put his hands/belt on this child.  I believe in discipline...but he went too far!!  Nice way to make this kid grow up to be another hater and criminal.  You don't bully, demean and shame kids into behaving.  I believe the grandmother should be charged as well for allowing this to happen.  She knew...she lied.  I understand she needs help with her grandson and she may have meant well...but she too should have put a stop to this.

This was so emotional I can hardly see the keys to type a comment. I hope the mother and father of this child see this video, they should be ashamed of themself that they would put the grandmother responsible of their child while they party and think of themselfs. This child acts out in school because all the other kids go home to a mother and father and this little boy has only his grandmother what the hell can't you all see this little boy needs both a mother and a father not a mentor that thinks he should beat children into susmission. We are not a third world country. We have been taught to lead by example not by abuse, you can't beat a child to be perfect, nobody is perfect. You need to find out why the child is acting out in school. I have raised 5 kids and my kids act out to get attention they want some kind of love whether it be kind and gentle or abusive, this child needs to be loved.....

This is probably true, but nowadays, more evidence points to the belief that spanking does not do ONE bit of good.

Good luck to you.

That kid is 7 years old...if he was acting like a "ghetto punk" then perhaps the mother should do something about it. If she wants to spank her kid, great, but having some man shave her kids head AND eyebrows off to humiliate him then BEAT him with a belt is more than a little extreme. 

Especially since that asshole thought it was appropriate to video it all and put it on youtube. That guy got what he had coming for him...things of that nature should be kept PRIVATE and not aired on video sharing site for people to view. 

There's a HUGE difference between emotionally and physically terrorizing a child and spanking.

I think he had good intentions, but that was way over the top. One thwack with the belt I might be able to shake my head in dismay, but let it go. I got way worse after all. And like the spanked as a child adults projecting that it made them the great people they are today, I'll project my childhood of belt whoopings made me the rage-filled social outcast I am today. Have a nice day! Hopefully we won't run into each other on the road. That's where most of my anger spills right on out.

really?  A 7 year old boy need this??!!  There is no reason for a 7 year old boy to  need this  :(   He probably doesn't even understand what is going on!  he's 7!!  whatever is wrong with him is not his fault!!

OK, despite all other arguments that can and should be made, you feel so certain that the child in that video was "bad"??

I was hit with a belt and it pissed me off severely. I would run. Sometimes I'd turn around and hit him right back. Then I'd do what ever set him off again on purpose. Some kids don't respond well to physical "discipline". I think it only works on mindless sheep. You seem like another one of the "mah daddy used to beat me wit a crow bar and I turned out fine! My daddy was a great man, Always with Budweiser in hand" types.

i got hit/spanked, hit with a belt once (or threatened) and i'm a girl -- had three brothers -- my parents were hit/spanked growing up -- and i will tell you this:  there is no reason for it.  

it did nothing for me.  yelling and hitting kids is pathetic and an issue with the adults.  

do i think it "scarred" me?  not really....but do i think it was necessary:  no way.  that environment is not healthy.  i get that threatening a kid with being hit might scare them enough to keep them in line...but you shouldn't have to resort to that and who needs fear?

there's so many ways to deal with issues in life, so many ways to discipline and to hit a kid is just a way for the adult to lash out or show s/he is losing control. 

trust me.  it's pointless.  i think if my parents would have just talked to me, taught me that way, i'd be much better off.

Cool. Then next time you get a speeding ticket or something maybe the cop should beat your ass a couple of times with a belt. If we can do it to a little kid adults should be able to take it. Right?

Well, you are incorrect on one point.

fractions of the American population ARE unfortunately 3rd world -- in behavior, in education, in employment and attitudes toward child rearing.

To this end, individuals like Every Broox have to be punished in accordance o a society that wants all to behave in a first world manner.

When my child acted out in class I just ask them if they needed me to go to school with them, that would be the worst punishment I could ever give them, and believe it worked everytime. I only had to walk them to the classroom they knew I was serious.
