stranger slapps child in walmart

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. Police say a 61-year-old man annoyed with a crying 2-year-old girl at a suburban Atlanta Walmart slapped the child several times after warning the toddler's mother to keep her quiet.A police report says after the stranger hit the girl at least four times, he said: "See, I told you I would shut her up."Roger Stephens of Stone Mountain is charged with felony cruelty to children. It was unclear if he had an attorney and a telephone call to his home Wednesday was unanswered.Authorities say the girl and her mother were shopping Monday when the toddler began crying. The police report says Stephens approached the mother and said, "If you don't shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you."Authorities say Stephens then grabbed the 2-year-old and slapped her. The child began screaming and Stephens was arrested.

  • He must have had a killer headache... leave it to a man to resort to abuse rather than move away fom the source of irritation.

  • Hey, I hate screaming kids too, but they don't get hit for it, and if someone else hit my kid, he'd be picking his teeth out of the roof of his mouth.
