You can't be serious, you have no idea if the man's presance was scaring the child and that caused her to cry, or if she was sick and was crying
because of this. No person has any right to lay one finger on another person's child causing any kind of harm to the child no matter what their
reason for doing so was.
This day and age it is difficult one for raising kids, if you spank your child on the bottom in public, you can be brought up on charges of child
abuse even if you were reprimanding the child for misbehaving. So the charges this man is being brought up on are the same that a parent would be
brought up on for doing the same thing to their own child.
As a parent this day you have to be careful with the dicipline you hand out to your child least you be brought up on charges, so to blame the mother
for not diciplining her child is not appropriate either even if it were a tantrum.
Sure she cold have removed herself and the child to a parking lot, but you would hear complainrs from people there as well.
Should she have left the child at home? Well, if she could not get a baby sitter and she needed to get shopping done and it was the only time she was
able to go, then she wouldn't leave the child home by herself, and would obviously take the child with her.
