Man Slaps Somebody Else’s Crying Kid

with 4 comments

Only In Georgia the South the U.S. Ok, this isn’t cool anywhere:

A Gwinnett County man is in custody accused of slapping a stranger’s crying toddler in a Stone Mountain Wal-Mart on Monday.

The mother of the 2-year-old child told police that both were walking in the aisles of the Rockbridge Road store when Roger Stephens, 61, approached and said “if you don’t shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you,” according to a police report.

A few moments later, in another aisle, Stephens grabbed the 2-year-old and slapped her across the face four or five times, according to the report.

Stephens then told the mom, “See, I told you I would shut her up,” according to the report.

child_slap_insideAre you effing kidding me? Where I’m from, some folks even object when teachers yell at their out-of-control youngins in school. So, to say the least, this is a dramatically different lane than I’m used to hearing about. Slapping some stranger’s kid? Really? I can’t imagine anything more disrespectful. I’m surprised mom-dukes didn’t hit the gun aisle of Wal-Mart and put one in his chest. Yep, Wal-Mart’s have gun-aisles down here.

  1. HAHAHA!! This story reminds me of when I was coming home from a business trip on a redeye and a child about 4 or 5 was crying from literally take off until the pilot said “Ladies & Gentlemen welcome to JFK Airport” (this was a flight from Seattle to NYC).

    The funny thing about that moment everyone in the plane had a response or a look of “pickup the child up and have her shut the fuck up! Please!!” Someone actually spoke up and addressed the mother on having a either a spoiled child or being an unresponsive mother.

    I think this guy crossed the line by touching another child thats not his but I could probably see where his frustration comes from with regards to the crying. There are some parents who just let their kids cry and whale out. It would be so hilarious shit if the child actually did stop crying tho…LOL!

  2. LOL. I’ve definitely been in a situation where I couldn’t stand a loud, crying baby. Never thought to cold slap one, though!

  3. Unbelievable !!!!!
    This guy must have been off his medication. He’s obviously “off of his rocker”
    It’s a 2 year olds JOB to cry/whine, and otherwise be TERRIBLE … lol. If he couldn’t handle it, he should have LEFT the store for Gods sake.
    I hope his punishment is HARSH.

  4. He never should have slapped the child. What he should have done is slapped the mother.
