Angry Man Slaps Child in WalMart

artstephensThere is always something crazy happening at Walmart and yesterday was no exception when Atlanta resident Roger Stephens, 61, decided to make an afternoon visit to the store.

When Stephens heard a 2-year-old crying loudly in the store, he reportedly approached the mother and stated, “If you don’t shut the baby up, I will shut her up for you.” The mother claims that Stephens grabbed the baby and slapped her four times until she was quiet at which point he stated, “See I told you I would shut her up.”

Stephens was then arrested and charged with first-degree cruelty to children. Parents nationwide are outraged at the flagrant display of abuse on an afternoon shopping trip.

    If I had been there and seen that happening to that child. I would have attacked that man myself and put him down. I do not care how old he is. He did not care about that child did he? As far as I am concerned. He attacked that child and I would have attacked him in the same manner. I would have assumed he was going to take the kids life. So YES I would take his is a heartbeat to save that child.

    sorry but that brat learned a life-lesson. people wonder why children run roughshod if they don’t get their way. if one of my kids were acting up in a store, enough to pee off another person…you can bet your bottom dollar that my kid would be spanked, slapped, cussed out for embarrassing his/her mother or me in public. If you cannot control your brat, shame on you, you are probably a crappy parent anyways. I’m all for beating the snot outta a child if they deserve it. Hell I usually whomp my kids bordering on abuse once a month….and my kids don’t act up. But they have the fear instilled in them
