A drunk 60-year-old
man schmuck got irked because a 19-month-old baby was crying during a Delta Airlines flight to Georgia. Or, hmm, it just might have been because an African American 19-month-old was crying.
The toddler was in tears because of air pressure causing pain in his ears. So what’s a full-grown, inconvenienced Idahoan to do? Why, call a little defenseless child “n*gger baby” and provide even more pain by slapping him, what else?
Every conscientious parent knows that nothing quiets down a distressed baby in agony more quickly than a swift smack to the face.
Little Jonah’s mom:
“His eye was swollen… and it was bleeding.”
Be proud, Mr. Violent Drunk Racist. You, a male adult, traumatized a tiny, unsuspecting, distraught, innocent small fry and his mother.
The 60-year-old man told Bennett to “shut that (‘N word’) baby up,” and slapped the 2-year-old boy in his face as the plane prepared for landing, according to an affidavit.
“I said, ‘What did you just say?’” Bennett explained to ABC News. “And he was so drunk that he fell onto my face, and his mouth moved over to my ear and he said it, just directly into my ear.”
Sidebar: I wonder if Mr. Violent Drunk Racist has kids of his own, and if so, how often he slaps them (or worse). And I also wonder if Mr. Violent Drunk Racist is an avid gun owner.
