I think everyone would agree that hitting a baby is WRONG, no matter who does it.
But why is this story making so much noise? Like another poster wrote, there are far more grievous stories of foster parents, baby momma's boyfriends, etc. really abusing, and even killing children and they are barely covered at all.
And, this mother has lost all credibility by laying the foundation for a law suit by saying her formerly happy child is now afraid of strangers, etc.

WOW WAKE UP AND READ.What Real World have you been living in.Abusers DON'T get charged with hate crimes for hitting a child of a different race in the Real World. They don't really get much charges for Child Abuse or Child Murder no matter if they are the said the same race or different race than the child they a abuse.

He should be charged with assaulting an infant. If the mom can sue him in civil court, so be it. I hope she wins and takes him to the cleaners. No one has the right to slap a 19 month old infant. This was not a "hate crime" it was a stupid crime. The idea that he should get any additional level of punishment for his personal beliefs, no matter how awful they are, is ridiculous.

If he was slapped because he was black, it IS a hate crime and should be prosecuted as such.

Duh??? Courts in real life don't care what color Child Abusers are or the Color of the Child they abuse.Even if they are different color
So this case should be treated like the rest, and NOT get News Attention until the ALL CHILD ABUSE CASES GET NEWS ATTENTION.
RACISM DOES NOT MATTER IN THOSE CASES.

To all you racist remedial small-minded readers out there, the parents were white, the child was adopted. It happened on the descent into the Atlanta, but the best part of this drunk idiot who reeked of alcohol was he got his a.ss fired by his company.

In both crime and law, hate crimes (also known as bias-motivated crimes, or a race hate) occur when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group. Examples of such groups include but are not limited to: racial group, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or gender identity.[1]

A hate crime is a category used to describe bias-motivated violence: "assault, injury, and murder on the basis of certain personal characteristics: different appearance, different color, different nationality, different language, different religion."[2]

"Hate crime" generally refers to criminal acts that are seen to have been motivated by bias against one or more of the types above, or of their derivatives. Incidents may involve physical assault, damage to property, bullying, harassment, verbal abuse or insults, or offensive graffiti or letters (hate mail).[3]

A hate crime law is a law intended to prevent bias-motivated violence. Hate crime laws are distinct from laws against hate speech in that hate crime laws enhance the penalties associated with conduct that is already criminal under other laws, while hate speech laws criminalize a category of speech.
