The physics of the assault are mind boggling.

1. The guy who clearly heard the idiot say the N-word was 12 rows away, while the engines were screaming in preperation for landing
2. Somehow the idiot managed to "turn around" in a coach seat, and slap a baby to his right, scratching him below the right eye.
3. The President of a government contracting Aircraft Parts company was not only flying Coach, but regular Coarch, not Economy Comfort.
4. Delta allowed either a 19 month or 2 years (depending on the source) child to be seating the row behind an exit row. This is explicetly against their travelling with infant policy.
5. The family's lawyer is a specialist not in personal injury (as if they would be litigating against the idiot) but a specialist in Business Disputes, so looks like the lawsuit will land on Delta's lap.

Did he do it? A-yup, looks like it, but it does need to make a bit more sense.

i upped my meds-up yours: Fissile: Tat'dGreaser: Really? Have you guys not heard of adoption?

==============

That, or "dad" is the very definition of pwned.

Seriously, wanna bet this "millionaire job creator"  has been a very unpleasant kind of guy for most of his life?   Wanna bet the company he worked for kept him on primarily because he's an alpha-Galt ass kicker?  Here:s my take:  If this hadn't made the news, Slappy and his bosses would all be having a good laugh about it over 20 year old scotch and cuban cigars.

BTW, wanna bet this guy is a Republican?  A Republican who hates government?  Yup, a government hating Republican who was receiving a fat pay check from company that does all it's business with the government. In other words this is your typical Romney voter.

The aviation industry basically depends on ex-(or strongly pro-)military dick-swinging males. Spend any time at all around pilots or planes and you'll learn not to express any center-left political views. The only aviation enthusiast I know who's a Democrat only flies R/C.


===========

I'm sure.  I'm also sure that the aerospace industry wouldn't exist but for tax dollars.

/Ironic pilots are ironic.

I'm most dismayed that he slapped the child as they were in approach mode for their destination. Not that an adult should ever slap a baby for any reason, but if you MUST slap a baby, do it half-way through a trans-Pacific flight. You know, when it might do some good.
In this case, the racist old dude should have just sucked it up and dealt with it for 10 minutes.
His loss of job is a pleasant surprise, if ya ask me.

Flakeloaf: You can fire a guy because you don't want a racist dickbag working for you, or you can fire him because you don't want to be called out for employing a racist dickbag when the truth is you really don't care what he believes as long as he makes you money. I'm suggesting the company is doing the second one and calling it the first. The time to fire him for his beliefs was many moons ago when a pretty obvious bias showed itself; Fissile's earlier post about the old boys laughing this one off was probably spot-on.


Do you really think he wouldn't have been fired if he just hadn't used the n-word?

Bullshiat. It's plain to see that you've never owned a business if that's what you believe. If my company's name had been in the news for something like this I would've fired his ass quickly. I fired an employee for slapping his wife once and this is much worse. Just the fact that people linked my business with him was enough. And this asshats employer wasn't it the news for inventing a new product, or doing a commmunity service, they were in the news for someone who represents thier public image slapping a child and using a racial slur. Just because you aren't on the clock doesn't mean that you aren't the face of your employer to the public. That's just how it works.

So having committed a crime means you forever lose the ability to ever be employed.

Flakeloaf: So having committed a crime means you forever lose the ability to ever be employed.


No. But having a felony on your record is an automatic no hire for probably 90% of white collar jobs.  And having your employers names splashed across the screen in a very negative light is a good way to get fire. Like the asshat that went to Chick-fil-A and and made an ass of himself. As soon as the name of the company he worked for was made public, he was fired.

factoryconnection: I don't like to make assumptions about drunken, racist, abusive, violent people, but fortunately the facts alone make him seem terrible enough.

About the mother, though: I can only imagine the two reasons that she didn't pound this clown's face is because (1) she was consoling her baby and (2) because she was in shock.  Had he pulled that on a black woman a little less shocked at seeing racism thrown her way, I doubt he'd have been so pretty for his mugshot.


I wouldn't be surprised had the mom been black the perp probably would've restrained himself better. He probably thought he could have gotten a way with it (and he did) since the mom is white.

Warlordtrooper: I just cannot bring myself to feel outraged over any part of this story

It's good that the racist was fired. Shows that we as a society will shun such ignorant idiots. However there is a part of society that feels its not the parents responsibility to teach their children how to act in public. If you. Cannot control your child then don't bring them on a plane


Babies on planes tend to cry because the pressure is causing them pain and\or they're scared of being somewhere new.

Yep, totally the fault of a kid not even out of diapers for crying when they're in pain or terrified! Evil, evil children! And for our next act, we'll slap you for screaming if you break your leg, since you shouldn't be allowed in public if you can't control yourself!

pro-tip: always pack earplugs in your carry-on bag.

CSS time:

A year or two ago, I was on a flight where I had the middle seat. Guy next to me on the aisle was an alleged ex-NFL player, so big he spilled into my seat. Huge Irish-American dude, fake joker personality. McExNFL was dipping into chewing tobacco, drinking beers, and high on medical marijuana candy. At one point he was flipping his head all over the place.

But McExNFL managed to play Angry Birds with those fat sausage fingers of his while all kinds of high, so he's still got that going for him, which is nice.

\did not slap 300 lb intoxicated man, who probably could've snapped my neck and left me dead in my seat without anybody noticing until everybody else had gotten off the plane

Most high ranking employees have a morality clause in their employment contracts (most high ranking corporate employees also have contracts) that generally state if the person does anything that will reflect poorly on the company, the company can fire them without consequence.  The suspension period was a way to distance the company from the guy while the legal team reviewed the contract and made sure this event qualified.
The company was fine with him being a dickbag until he made the news about it.

You know, when I read this story the first time around I said to myself, "I could see this happening".  I work for an Aircraft Manufacturer, and I've seen some of the management staff "in action"...  Yep.  Yeeeeeeep....

FTA: The attorney for the child's family, John Thompson, said the family has not decided yet whether to sue.

Well that's easy.  He's rolling in it.  And it's not like you're going to get a humanitarian award for not suing...

FTA: But he said Monday family members believe Hundley should be punished beyond the loss of his job and possible one-year federal prison sentence.

Assault on a minor really warrants that?  Honest question.  I think the guy's a douche, mind you.  I'm just not sure he's a douche that needs to do time in a federal lock-up.  For instance, you have:

FTA: InSession legal analyst Joey Jackson said he doesn't think there's a significant case because the child was not seriously harmed.

So yeah, might be overkill here.

FTA: "The family wants to make sure that Mr. Hundley and anyone like Mr. Hundley never does something like that again," he said on CNN's "Starting Point."

Yeah...  Good luck with that.

Not just any minor, but a minor of color. They're special, they have an entire sets of laws (hate crime legislation) just for them.

SuperNinjaToad: I wouldn't be surprised had the mom been black the perp probably would've restrained himself better. He probably thought he could have gotten a way with it (and he did) since the mom is white.


I'm inclined to agree.  If he's the type to use the "n-word" in public he's ironically most likely quite afraid of black people.  That he's one to slap a baby already screams "coward."

SkunkWerks: Assault on a minor really warrants that? Honest question. I think the guy's a douche, mind you. I'm just not sure he's a douche that needs to do time in a federal lock-up.


Assault is the crime that happened here, and in the air it is under federal jurisdiction.  Were it battery, with significant injuries that come along with it, the possible sentence would have been considerably more severe.  The real stitch for him is that you have to serve a minimum of (IIRC) 90% of a federal sentence before being eligible for parole.

roc6783: Most high ranking employees have a morality clause in their employment contracts (most high ranking corporate employees also have contracts) that generally state if the person does anything that will reflect poorly on the company, the company can fire them without consequence.


Hell, they may have a "no drinking during business hours" and his drunken behavior may have made for a clear-cut case of violation of explicit rules based on when the flight was.

FTA: Hundley's attorney, Marcia Shein, said her client is being unfairly portrayed.  "This has escalated into a racist issue and I want to be clear he is not a racist," Shein said.

Who else would just have the phrase "n*gger baby" standing by for casual use?  I mean, I've heard black guys call toddlers on the playground "little n*gga" before but even that seemed really strange without this jackass's obvious malice.  I know that lawyers have to practice damage control in public, but seriously this is a stretch that only $200+ /hour can empower.

Let me see if I can clear this up for you.

A. Babies cry.

B. Sometimes babies have to travel.

C. A baby crying on a plane is not necessarily (and probably not) a reflection of poor parenting.

D. Suck it up. You're an adult in civil society. Buy some good headphones if you're that completely incapable of hearing a noise.

19 month old babies cannot control the pressure in their ears the same way older children can. This is a fact of life. If you can't handle a few minutes of crying at the end of a flight, perhaps it is YOU that shouldn't be flying, asshole.


Hell, sometimes adults can't control the pressure, either. I once flew with an ear infection and I was pretty much crying myself.

bborchar: Kids have never bothered me on flights...I can ignore crying with some headphones. Adults, however, are another story. I sat next to a paranoid drug addict once who suddenly screamed at my friend and me for talking before the plane ever took off. Then she spaced out for a while before suddenly questioning my friend about his sex life. Another time, I had to spend a late flight next to two very drunk women who couldn't shut up, and kept knocking into me or getting stuff on me. So yeah, crying kids have nothing on idiot adults.

Father is white.  The baby is black.  The baby was adopted by a white couple as an accessory for the mom's designer hand bags.


That's some ignorant crap there. Most children up for adoption in the US are black or Hispanic. My husband and I are considering adopting a child because we feel that squirting out two is plenty when there are so many children in need of a home. But of course, I'd hate to be trendy. Douchebag.

Where in TFA do you get an air marshal witnessing it? The word marshal doesn't even appear in the article. And "assistance" doesn't mean they witnessed anything, just that they came over and said "Are you all right, sweetie?" after someone started (justifiably, if all this is true) making a scene about it.

There needs to be an Asshat Registry for people like this.

Love all the snarky political comments. Seriously, who does not know, today, that this would be inappropriate behavior under any circumstances? Even if the guy was a hard-core racist, it is simply beyond belief that he would not be able to control his emotional reactions to annoyance. Hey, Fark Experts, the guy sounds (and looks) bi-polar. (Why yes, there IS very often a certain "look" to many people that have bi-polar issues. Also schizophrenia. A lack of "cohesiveness" in the face.) He needs medication. Seriously, not snark.

Dime to dollar, given his relatively peaceful adulthood and more recent descent into bad behavior, I'd wager he's got early onset dementia or something. Jail won't fix his problem, but court ordered psych visits may go a long way.


Thank you. A refreshing change from the other two hate-filled rants, Yes, I hadn't considered EOD or similar, since I am more personally cand closely connected with things like schizophrenia and bi-polar...

Your inability to follow the thread and see that I clarified my post with a "Me, Myself, and Irene" reference leads me to believe that you have precious few brain cells left...

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: They're special, they have an entire sets of laws (hate crime legislation) just for them.


Never got the butthurt about stuff like this.  If we still didn't have this occasionally predilection for treating such people (different people) as subhuman (I think "shut that n*gger baby up"- particularly when followed by assault on a minor- qualifies), laws like this wouldn't be necessary.

It really is just that simple.  I'm not in any "special" class of person and even I get this.

factoryconnection: Assault is the crime that happened here, and in the air it is under federal jurisdiction. Were it battery, with significant injuries that come along with it, the possible sentence would have been considerably more severe. The real stitch for him is that you have to serve a minimum of (IIRC) 90% of a federal sentence before being eligible for parole.


I guess that answers my question then.  Federal Prison on a technicality it is then.  Can't say I'm feeling much sympathy here.  The guy seems to have been thoroughly soused and well aware he's had issues with "tact" in the past.

Still, it just seemed a bit extreme, and possibly an abuse of federal resources.  Meh.

technofiend: I expect plenty of e-mails from the usual corners entitled "RE: Re: RE: Fwd: Fwd: RE: Don't slap that baby!!!!!!" with bad photoshops of african american babys attached along with some whaaargabl about them being a protected species thanks to Obama.


It's what I sift through my dad's e-mail for...  well, that and he keeps breaking his damn computer.

Greek: It sounds like the child behaved himself just fine throughout the flight, but on descent, was having issues with the altitude change. What do you want the mother to do with a baby who's likely in pain?


Oh I don't know. Maybe KEEP IT OUT OF FARKING ENCLOSED METAL TUBES FILLED WITH OTHER PEOPLE UNTIL IT IS OLD ENOUGH TO BEHAVE IN PUBLIC? You're probably right though. It would be way too much work to be considerate to others, so fark them. They can just STFU and deal with the noise created by my unrestrained screaming shiat machine.
