If he had slapped my kid, the FBI would have been locking two people up, because I’d have gotten his ass, but good.

Ahhhhh, I don’t know ….I’d like to know if there are witnesses .That’s hardley an act that one can do on an airliner without someone hearing the slur and seeing the smack . The woman issues a complaint ,the authorities must file a charge . I’d hold conclusions till the court date , or at least more information .

The reports I heard says there was a witness.

Yes, there was a witness, sitting on the plane a couple of rows back and he heard the racial slur and the slap.

Yep, there are several reports about the witness. Apparently some people would prefer to question the mother’s honesty than spend 5 seconds googling it.

“After Joe Rickey Handley struck [the child], Ms. Bennett received assistance from several people on the plane, including male passenger Todd Wooten,” court documents said.

Wooten, who was seated in row 16, said he heard derogatory language coming from the rear of the aircraft and witnessed Handley slapping the child.

Yes, the bad woman just up and complained that someone called her baby boy the N-word and then slapped him. Happens all the time.

re: #6 blueraven

No , but having someone telling you to shut the kid up , getting insulted then embellishing the story does .
And it’s not like we’ve NEVER heard of that happening before right ?

When you’ve got some actual evidence of that, feel free to post it.

This asshole was drunk. He’s got a history of being arrested for being drunk and assaulting another person in the past. Helps if you actually look for more information, Aligarr, instead of making stupid comments.

re: #10 Sionainn

Stupid comments ? Ever think that if it was your kid and your wife , she would been all over the guy smacking the shit out of him ?
I’ll reserve concliusion , until the internet hearsay is out of the way , and the facts are in . Pundits get punked everyday by jumping too quickly .
What about the 4 boys at Duke ? Everyone had’
em hung up by the yard arm until it was proven that Crystal’s charges were totally false …but not before disgracing 4 family names and ruining 4 reputations , causing 4 expulsions from Duke .
BTW Crystal’s in jail today doing time for murdering her boyfreind .
I’ll wait till the facts are in thank you .

Unlike Duke, there were witnesses to back this woman up.

Being the kind of person who doesn’t back down from assholes, I have nonetheless done so when my children are involved because I don’t want them hurt.

Go ahead and keep making excuses for a drunk asshole who had the audacity to smack a very small child and call him a ni**er.

When the facts are against you, change the subject.

I think I will trust the word of the Mom in this case, and the eye witnesses, rather than some drunk asshole who has been arrested for public intoxication and assault previously.

Funny how most will come to a simple, logical conclusions while others prefer to obfuscate.

The drunk asshole will have his chance to deny the charges and go to court if he so chooses.

re: #12 Aligarr

Youre hoping that this story is either a hoax or grossly exaggerated because your pretty much cynical of black people being a victim of people like the man being accused of the crime. so you want more “facts” in hope that the woman’s or the media’s story turns out mendacious. the “facts” that you are looking for is to not validate this woman’s story, but to exonerate to “white” man stand accused of the crime. why else would you bring up the duke lacross incident?

Interesting note…the mother is white. The child is black. He was adopted. ;-)

re: #16 burgerNfries

Quit your job as a psychologist freind . I simply wait to crosscheck informatioin , yes even on LGF . And since the story has been confirmed on ABC , i now accept the event . Why would I bring up the Duke incident ? That’s easy , look how many jumped to conclusions ,before any facts were in . The Idaho man who called the kid the N word was apparently refering to a black child ,and I wouldn’t jump to hang him , since he is the accused . And I qualified my statement with the same doubt until I had verified the information .Sorry but I take with a grain of salt everything I hear on internet blogs , Google is not The Paragon of truth . Whenever Breitbart comes up with a wild story , many times the first page on Google is nothing but Breitbart as a source ,and Wiki ? Phe . I’m skeptical until I can verfy information , so SUE ME . The story is so outrageous if true , and now that I have confirmed it , I’m in agreement with most of the sentiments expressed . So dont go painting me as a racist . It is hard to believe anyone WHITE OR BLACK would do such a thing . Pleasse take note of my last sentence in each of the two posts .

The baby, whom is black, is STILL the victim.

re: #18 Aligarr

Then maybe you should have waited and done your research before posting, because everyone else who has posted on here has done theirs. you came late to the party and now that you have “confirmed” the story to be valid, youre now in damage control mode. Dont try to pull the wool over my eyes by trying to pretend that you are not prejudice. there are is a plethora of examples you could have used besides duke lacross. you could have used ashley todd, susan smith, bethany storro. they have received national headlines and even sympathy before they were caught lying. you now agree with everyone’s sentiment here because you have no choice to. everyone had the “facts” before you.

re: #17 Sionainn

I had a feeling that might be the case, though I can’t explain why. Maybe I picked up on the slightly odd way the slur was phrased, i.e. “shut that ****** baby up” instead of “shut your ****** baby up”.

Plus, they didn’t mention the mom’s race. Being one of two brown-skinned people in a predominantly WASP family, I remember thinking it sort of strange (once I was old enough to notice) how in conversations other white people were never identified as such, but non-whites (or white foreigners) had their ethnicity appended to their identity. It was very subtle and not done in a disparaging way, but still…it made it clear that the person was somehow different, “other”.

Okay, I’m just babbling now, so I’ll stop. ;)

In the serendipitous coincidence category, I saw a very similar point made on the NaNoWriMo forums in a thread about racism:

We are categories of pornography. People fetishize us and treat our race as a monolith. People look at our popular culture and assume that’s exactly what our ethnic culture is like…Anything that we do wrong, as an individual, is somehow a reflection of our entire race. Our opinions are somehow a reflection of the opinions of our entire race. Whenever we succeed, we are a “credit to our race” or we are “successful for a (insert race) person.”

We sometimes wish we were white. Sometimes, we don’t even realise that we’re not white until it smacks us in the face.

It’s a pretty powerful post, well worth reading in full.
