FTFA:  In an interview, Hundley denied striking the toddler or using a racial slur, though he did acknowledge that he "asked the mother to quiet the child."

After Hundley hit the child, Agent Cheney reported, Bennett received assistance from several other passengers, including Todd Wooten, who was in seat 16C. Wooten told agents that he "heard derogatory language coming from the rear of the aircraft" and got up to investigate. "According to Mr. Wooten," Cheney noted, "he saw Joe Rickey Hundley strike" the toddler.

Yeah, neutral witnesses are already coming forth to help crucify you, asshole.  Good luck with the non-apology apology.

I can understand getting annoyed at a screaming toddler, whether it's on an airplane, in a restaurant, in an elevator, at a grocery store....wherever.  Toddlers are by default annoying, and when they're loud, they're even worse.  That being said, you NEVER put your hands on someone else's child, unless you're trying to pull them out of the way of oncoming traffic or something.  You especially never hit someone else's child.  You super-duper especially never hit someone else's child and use a racial slur and other derogatory language against them.

This guy should be kicked in the dick hard enough to break it.

And even though annoying, it sounds like the child only started crying on descent.  That's just something you have to put up with.  Kids can't help that ear thing.

I flew home from Bermuda next to a mother and 4ish looking daughter and the latter had an ear infection.  All she did was lay with her head in her mom's lap, weeping constantly.  I felt so bad for that kid.

After he hit the kid, the stewardess should've cued the rest of the passengers to get in a Airplane slap line with Hundley getting his senses back one hand at a time.  Or whatever they can find.

After all, he was distraught over a sick relative and he could really use the hands on counseling.  Momma gets hers first.

That may be something they don't want to comment on. If they didn't cut him off after "several double-vodkas" and let him become intoxicated to the point of being belligerent, they could have some liability. At least that's what I'm assuming and going off the fact that bars can get in trouble for not cutting off an obviously drunk patron.

As a 60+ white male my thought on racism is this:
The only good racist is a dead racist.

What a farking asshole. I met a lady with a toddler and a baby on a flight from Tampa to Atlanta. They were sitting right behind me. The baby was pretty  fussy so I offered to help her out. I entertained the older (about 2 years old) with boos and toys while she tended to the baby who cried most of the flight. Turns out that she was on the same flight I was all the way to Dallas, so I hung in there with her the whole way. We grabbed some lunch and I found out that she was an attorney in Tampa on her way to see her folks. She insisted on paying for lunch (I didn't want her to pay as I was drinking beer and my beer tab can get out of hand) and after some arguing I relented. I asked the flight crew to DFW if we could switch seats around so I could help her out further if the kids (the 2 year old and I were buddies by now) got grumpy during the flight and they let us. Anyway, we got to Dallas and I walked them all the way out of security to the curb where her father was waiting. She gave me her card and told me to call if she could ever help me out.

About 7 years later when my Dad's health was fading, my Mother had a lot of questions about how to set things up in case Dad lingered longer than he wanted to so I called her. Left a msg with her office telling who I was and how I got her name in case she didn't remember. She called me later that day and within a couple of days I had some good information for my Mother to work with...free of charge. I had asked for a referral.

Bottom line is Mr. Executive Asshole, don't be a dick. You'll be amazed at how well it can turn out for you.

/yeah yeah yeah CSB and all.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! I did have a couple of bloody marys while we were reading Dr. Suess...kind of my in flight staple.

In all honesty, I think I came out ahead on the deal. I really didn't have much to do, I was just traveling. She gave of her professional services. I didn't expect it and was (and still am) very thankful for the time and advice she gave.

In December, I flew from Phoenix to Philly and the 4-yo girl across the aisle from me wailed the entire flight.  Non-stop, nearly ear-piercing wailing for almost 4 hours.  The poor mother tried everything and was near tears herself.  Kid was just overtired and for whatever reason couldn't or wouldn't sleep.

We all wanted to shove that kid in the overhead, lock her in the bathroom, ANYTHING for a moment's peace.  And I'm sure I wasn't the  only one trying to figure out how to surreptitiously suffocate her w/my neck pillow.  But actually lay a hand on someone else's kid?  Nuh-uh--not if you want the mother to put you in a body bag.

CSB:  Guy in the window seat next to me had Bose noise-canceling headphones on the entire trip.  He didn't take them off until we touched down.  He leaned over to me and suggested I tell the mother to give the girl some gum to help w/her ears.  He was surprised to learn she'd been crying the whole flight.

Best. Product endorsement. EVER.
