Idaho Man SMACKS Two Year Old Boy During Flight, Tells Mother To Keep Her ‘N***** Baby’ Quiet




Atlanta-bound passenger Jessica Bennett and her two year old child were flying aboard Delta Airlines on February 8th when something absolutely shocking and angering happened.


As the plane was coming in for a landing, her baby boy couldn’t help but cry. Most normal human beings wouldn’t have a problem with that, but Joe Rickey Hundley did. According to KBOI, the FBI says the Idaho man slapped the boy and then demanded Bennett “to shut that (‘N word’) baby up.” Hundley had been sitting next to Bennett during the flight and he scratched the boy below the eye when he struck him.


FBI special agent Daron Cheney stated in an affidavit that “Ms. Bennett received assistance from several people on the plane, including male passenger Todd Wooten,” who heard the incident a few rows up and immediately came to Bennett’s aid. Hundley is being charged with assault and is not in custody at this time. A court date has yet to be scheduled.

1. What a sicko

This guy sounds like he could use several decades of anger management training following his jail term.

I could just imagine their living hell with a violent father.

6. I see that Mr. Asswipe is pleading "not guilty" to federal

assault charges. I don't think that's going to fly. He hit a BABY in front of multiple witnesses.

WTF?? Is he going to claim he was just standing his ground??

7. That's just procedural at this point and almost always happens

in federal (and state) criminal prosecutions - you plead not guilty at this stage even if you know you're guilty. At this preliminary hearing you could plead guilty, but that means you admit to everything right now and go on to sentencing. Or, you can plead not guilty, which leaves the case open so you can get discovery from the prosecutor and maybe work out a plea deal. I doubt very much this guy would want to go to trial, but his lawyer has probably advised him to enter a not guilty plea now in an effort to negotiate a deal for less than the sentencing guidelines, which I think calls for one year in the slammer.

We'll see how that goes....

4. It's probably pretty easy to get an asshole subdued on a plane.

Just point at him and shout, 'He's got a box cutter!'

But that would be wrong.

8. Coming home from China to the US with our daughter who was 16 months old

while we didn't have our little girl slapped, there were a number of older American couples on the flight who were, shall we say, less than amused that a white couple had a little Chinese girl in tow. As the flight from Beijing to LA progressed, we had several of these older couples pass by our seats and heard them make disparaging comments about us and about our daughter. It was all I could do to keep my husband from punching one asshole out because of the viciousness of his comments. It was truly disgusting. The crew was less than helpful, it being a ChinaAir flight. And it was just our little family who got comments. There were probably 25 to 30 couples on board the flight with children adopted in China. When we landed in LA however things took an amusing turn. As we approached passport control, a lovely Asian lady with INS was directing American citizens with children adopted from China to a short line. One of the older white men on the plane demanded to be allowed to jump the lines and be processed quickly. The INS agent told him that families with minor children were given priority and he should get back in line. Victory was lovely.

He struck a baby. And he's racist too.

Special extra-toast seat in hell for jerks like that.
