Busted For Slapping Stranger's Crying Child
Georgia man, 61, threatened to "shut that baby up" at Walmart

SEPTEMBER 2--Meet Roger Stephens. The Georgia man, 61, was shopping Monday morning at a Walmart in Stone Mountain when he crossed paths with Sonya Matthews and her two-year-old daughter Paige. The child was crying, which apparently greatly perturbed Matthews. "If you don't shut that baby up I will shut her up for you," Stephens warned Matthews, according to a Gwinnett County Police Department report. Moments later, Stephens acted on his threat, slapping Paige "across the face approximately four or five times." Though the child "started crying and screaming" after being struck, Stephens told Matthews, "See, I told you I would shut her up." After police were summoned, Stephens told a cop that the child was crying "and he just slapped her," according to the report. Stephens was arrested for felony cruelty to children and booked into the Gwinnett County Detention Center, where he is being held without bond. Paige sustained "slight redness to the face," but was otherwise unharmed.(3 pages)

I'm glad that you posted this one Phoenix. I read this story last night and damn near flipped out. I tend to read alot and I've found myself stammered a few times by articles that I've digested, but one this takes the prize. What an absolute nutjob. I can assure you that this dude must be one of the luckiest bastards living today. I find it incredible that the mother did not kill this dude. I, personally, and I'm confident that my family members as well, would have terminated this guys very existence. With my rambling finished now, what would have been the reaction that you good folks would have had?
Really. This one astounds me.
Phoenix, hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday weekend Sir. Be safe.

Someone should have shot the bastard right there on the spot. Study Florida's "Stand Your ground " law, we need this law everywhere! Just last week a guy got out of a car in Tampa and hit a guy riding a bicycle and knocked him off, the guy rolled over and put two .40 cals in the SOB and did he charged, of course he did. The next day the judge rulled that he had complied with Florida law and "Stood His Ground." The cop that charged him was berated in court by the judge for bringing charges! If you don't believe this story look it up on the net. Oh, and by the way since this law went into effect crime, in Florida, has dropped every year since! The hoods and punks are afraid to touch any one these days. They know what MIGHT happen.

You never, NEVER raise a hand to another person's child! This guy must have some serious problems. I hope anger management is part of his sentencing.

I don't know how the mother contained herself. She should have kicked the sh!t out of the guy.
