Tough Guy Alert: Stranger Slaps Crying Toddler in Store

Sweet Guy

A 61-year-old man made a two-year-old toddler talk to the hand — literally — when he repeatedly slapped her at a Georgia Walmart because she wouldn’t stop crying.  And, oh yeah…!  He didn’t know the child.

Hard to believe — just look at that man’s angelic face!

According to the arresting officer, the child’s mother said her daughter was crying — as two-year-olds so often do — as they walked down one of the aisles.  Then the man, Roger Stephens, approached them and said:

“If you don’t shut the baby up, I will shut her up for you.”

You tell ’em, tough guy!

A few moments later, while the mother and the crying child were in another aisle, Stephens allegedly grabbed the girl and slapped her across the face.  Police said he hit her four or five times.

“See, I told you I would shut her up,” the suspect allegedly told the mother.

Authorities described “slight redness” to the toddler’s face.  Before he was arrested, Stephens apologized to the mother for striking the girl, the incident report said.

If someone slapped MY kid at Walmart…?  I would beat him with a floor lamp.  And then force him to wear an unflattering plaid shirtdress from Miley Cyrus’ clothing line.  Nothing more painful or humiliating than that.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
