FBI: Man-slapped-crying-2-year-old-on-delta

By Christopher Seward
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
A Delta Air Lines passenger faces a federal assault charge after allegedly slapping a fellow traveler’s crying 2-year-old son to quiet the child as their flight arrived in Atlanta, according to an FBI affidavit.
Joe Rickey Hundley of Hayden, Idaho, was on Flight 721 from Minneapolis, Minn., to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Feb. 8 and sitting next to Jessica Bennett of Minneapolis when her son began crying from the change in cabin pressure as the plane descended, Bennett told FBI Special Agent Daron Cheney in the Feb. 12 affidavit.
Bennett said she was trying to get the child to stop crying, but he continued. “According to Ms. Bennett, a male passenger next to her in Row 28, Seat A, later identified as Joe Rickey Hundley, told her to shut that” “baby up. Ms. Bennett stated that Joe Rickey Hundley then turned around and slapped in the face with an open hand, which caused the juvenile victim to scream even louder.”
Efforts were made Friday to reach Hundley for comment. In an interview with The Smoking Gun website, which first reported the incident, Hundley denied striking the child or using a racial slur.

1. A miscreant and a moron.

Not only does he commit an abhorrent act, he does it on a plane, triggering federal criminal jurisdiction.

Buh-bye, loserboy.

3. Easy enough to check his alcohol consumption

Airlines don't accept cash any more. There will be electronic records of his drink purchases.

7. So the guy told the mother to “shut that nigger baby up”

So in addition to being a felon, he's also a racist bigot. A Republican no doubt.

Something tells me he didn't vote for Obama. Call it a hunch.

18. He's from ID and runs a business and doesn't handle alcohol well. My guess is he's

a True Believing Mormon on the outside and not so much on the inside. And definitely a Republican.

11. Hayden Lake is in Northern Idaho

Which has always been a hotbed of, White Supremist Skinhead jackbooted thug, ignorance. It is not far from where the Citadel, gated community, is planned.


Shudder.

Not as much Mormon influence up on the panhandle as there is in the southern part of the state.

43. Yep.

Hayden Lake is the town where the old Aryan Nations compound sat. The case against Richard Butler dealt a big blow when they had to give up the compound.

But nobody remembers the biggest blow shortly after: Richard Butler was caught parading his antisemitic and racist garbage with a new follower, identified as Bianca Trump, a former porn star known well for her interracial scenes.

6. This stuff is getting more and more evident,

And the people who do this stuff seem to think they can do it with impunity. I hope they jail the man for assault...and throw in hate crimes, if they can.

This will continue as long as all the money flows to the top, by the way. That is one of the biggest problems; forcing companies to pay their staff and taxing for offshore manufactories might help.

12. Travel tip: if you fly with a kid, make sure they drink or suck on a pacifier

during take off and landing. Sipping from a cup or straw works best and will relieve the pressure which causes the pain.

If anyone touches my child, I'm going to be on the news that night next to the headline, "parent kills...."

But I'd bet lawyers are lining up for a sizable personal damages claim by the mother, they know that he'll settle for big bucks out of court.

40. Better yet - put him on the no fly list

If he can't control himself for a few minutes while the plane is landing, he is too dangerous to allow to fly. He can fly chartered flights or just stay home.

and call them racial slurs.

I really love when someone disparages a bigot with even more bigotry.

34. A screaming baby would be nothing, absolutely NOTHING compared to what I would have done to him

if he had touched my child.

After Hundley hit the child, Agent Cheney reported, Bennett received assistance from several other passengers, including Todd Wooten,

Glad to see that others came to the mother's aid. This asshole needs to go to jail and then be banned from flying for the rest of his life whenever he gets out.

What the hell is wrong with that racist fool? If this did happen, they should lock this sorry racist bastid up and throw away the key. If this had happened to my child, there is no way, this man would have been able to walk off that plane without a limp.
