I read this and had to read it TWICE..I was just like WOW!!!



STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- A Wal-Mart shopper who became so angry about a crying child that he allegedly slapped the girl in the face is due in court Wednesday. Investigators said the incident happened Monday at the Stone Mountain store on Rockbridge Road.

A police report said the man, Roger Stephens, 61, of Stone Mountain, had warned the child’s mother, Sonya Mathews, that if she didn’t quiet down the child, he would do it for her.

Let us know what you think about this story on our Twitter and Facebook pages! According to the report, after the mother failed to quiet the girl, Stephens came up to them and slapped the child several



times in the face. The report then quotes Stephens as saying, “See, I told you I would shut her up.” Mathews then screamed at Stephens and called for security, the report said. Stephens was stopped by another shopper, according to the report.

The girl, identified in the report as Paige Mathews, 2, was not injured, but did suffer some redness in the face. She was treated at the scene and released, the report said. Stephens was charged with cruelty with children in the first degree, which is a felony.




Just look at his face...I literally had to laugh..I mean the ANGER!

Look, I know we all have wanted to do this in real life...but to actually do it..what is happening to people!!!
Did he not think there would be consequences? I just dont understand the mentality of someone that could actually pull this off!

I'm glad he's being charged with a felony.

I'm sure many will say this but if this had happened to MY kid, it would be me having to show up in court, probably for something really really bad. I have to wonder if I would have had the wherewithall to stop beating that man after he was rendered unconcious.

Definalty the poster boy for evil. If the child was annoying him so bad, why didn't he just remove himself from the situation? Seems a lot easier than facing a felony charge. He deserves what he gets.

What a stupid thing to get charged for! - he will be there talking to other criminals at some point -

'Yhea they got me smuggling drugs' - 'Yhea I had an unregistered hand gun' - 'well I tried to rob a jewellery store... What about you Roger?'............"Ummahum, I slapped a baby in the face - I was like all 'shutup!' and the baby was all like 'whaa whaa' - so I flat handed the little punk - and I'll do it again shee!"

I think he should get more of a punishment and charges filed against him. To slap a child like that in public, and it was not even his is just wrong. It was the mothers place to discipline the child.
I am rather shocked at the mothers constraint and discipline not to attack the man for striking her child.

Wow, what an ass. I bet he kicks dogs too.

If he thought he was irritated and annoyed before, he's really in for it now. I'm sure there will be no end to the condemnation and repercussions he will endure for his outrageous behavior.

so your advocating slapping every crying child you see? Have you ever tried to calm down a 2 year old having a tantrum? Its not as easy as saying stop crying.

I know exactly how he felt. I hate it when people go out in public with kids who won't behave. What makes parents think that it is OK to inflict their badly parented children on the rest of us? Lookie here Mr. Studmuffin and Mrs Sleazeskank how about paying a little attention to the results of your lovefest so they don't end up crawling through somebody's window at 3AM stealing to support their drug habit?

The should have slapped the parent. There's no excuse for dragging a crying child through a Wal-Mart or any other place. It shows a lack of parenting skills, and total lack of discipline. I always chastise parents for unruly children, and I encourage everyone to do so. Yeah, I got the old "excuse ME?" bit before, but the proper response is "Yes, you and your child can excuse yourself to the parking lot until you get that brat under control."

OH, and if your kid is rolling around the store on those damn Heelys, just punch yourself. One kid almost knocked me over, then went sprawling down the aisle. Then the parents had the audacity to blame me for tripping the kid. In the ensuing argument the father threatened me with violence, the mother threatened to sue me for harming her crotch fruit, and I had a talk with the manager about Wal-Mart not providing a safe environment by allowing the brats to skate in the aisles. The police cleared things up by giving me the option of filing charges against the father for assault, and the brat for battery. They reevaluated their position real quick.

Maybe he will get jail time so some fellow inmates can get some slaps on him.

If that was my child, WalMart employees would be busy picking up merchandise from the aisles because I would be hitting him with everything in sight.

Dude - I would have been the one in court! He would be in the ground! That mans going to hurt someone.

As far as the mother - shes worthless on ALL accounts. She SHOULD have removed her child until she got her baby under control. Its what I did with all four of mine.

It is in a mothers nature to protect her young and by-god... Id have been doing me some protecting! Theres A LOT of things to pick up in a Wal-Mart.

This mother needs to have more uhph - she doesnt even have it in her to defend her child.

Good, get that SOB off the streets for awhile.
I myself have a pretty hot temper at times, but I couldn't phathom doing that. Heck, I don't see the need to slap my own children. (well, there was one time, but I won't get into that)

This guy was a ticking time-bomb. I'm just glad that he is taken off the streets for what amounts to a red face, rather than someone's head being blown off for walking on his yard.
