“Hundley’s comments were racist and hateful,” Bennett said in a statement to KARE-TV (http://kare11.tv/YyjZ58 . “The family has numerous questions about how a passenger could get so violently out of control as to assault a toddler.”

AND a trip to the local hospital!

  I think it was all unexpected that this monster would even THINK...[let alone do]....again even think about putting his HANDS on a crying toddler...cuz crying is what toddlers do!!!!!  And to call an innocent child the "N' word...something was CLEARLY wrong with this manthing.  I also think shock was in place and when you are in shock sometimes it paralyzes you to react cuz you are trying to process what is happening.  And also the first thought is to comfort your child in the midst of everything that is going on around you and to make him/her feel safe again.  Once that's taken care of then you look outward for resolution...I just think it happened soooooooo fast and the mother was unable to catch her breathe long enough to respond.    Plus she had a crying child in her arms. 

 

But what is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE.....is that a GROWN azz man decided to strike an innocent child for no other reason than that child being "normal."  That right there is unbelievable to me.  So the thing is.... what is the judical system going to do with this man?  I have to respect that his job immediately responded and suspended him-that shows responsibility on their part.  And that the media is showing everyone who this animal REALLY is.  So he should be sentenced based on what not only on the injuries he placed on this child....but!  The psychological component that may or may not scar him for life.  These are the issues the court system should take in consideration because to me it is clearly CHILD ABUSE and first degree ASSAULT.  But! 

[UPDATE] Passenger Who Allegedly Slapped Baby And Call Him ‘N*gger’ Loses His Job

Yep!  I was shocked that they fired him, too!!  

 

They said they 'suspended' him first, then out-and-out fired him within days!!  To me, I figure that MUST mean that he must of done it!!  Either that ... or maybe they just didn't like him, either .... and were looking for an excuse to get rid of him???  

 

But .... they say there were witnesses.    And I, too, wonder why the mother didn't turn to the person next her, say "Umm, could you hold my baby for a minute??" and then commenced to beatin' the holy HELL outta that fool!!  

 

He wouldn't have wanted to see another toddler for the rest of his life once I got up off his azz!!    Obviously, his mother isn't the 'African American' part of him!!!  

[UPDATE] Lawyer Of Passenger Who Allegedly Slapped Baby Says She’s Getting Hate Mail

Man gets eight months in prison for slapping toddler on plane.

 

ATLANTA — A former aerospace executive who slapped a crying toddler on an airplane and used a racial slur against the child, who is black, received an eight-month prison sentence on Monday for an incident his attorney blamed on his alcoholism. 

 

Joe Rickey Hundley, who apologized in court to the child's mother, was accused of striking the 19-month-old boy in the face on board a Delta Air Lines flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta last February. 

 

Hundley pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in October. Prosecutors had sought a six-month prison sentence, but the federal judge opted for a stiffer punishment. 

 

"I'm very sorry," Hundley told the child's mother during the court hearing in Atlanta. "I made the most terrible day in my life much worse for myself and others." 

 

Hundley's attorney has said her client had flown to Atlanta to remove his dying son from life support after an insulin overdose and was emotionally distraught. She also blamed his alcoholism for his behavior on the flight.

 

The child's mother previously said Hundley was belligerent and seemed intoxicated during the flight. He used a racial slur when the child started crying as the plane descended. 

 

The baby is black and his adoptive mother, Jessica Bennett of Minneapolis, is white. Hundley also is white. 

 

Hundley was fired from his executive position at AGC Aerospace & Defense after the slapping incident, his attorney said.
