I was eating at a restaurant here in halls the other day, left and this guy was dragging this 7 year old girl out of the restaurant kicking and
screaming. I stopped to observe to see what was going on. The little girl dropped down to the ground to avoid a spanking and he yanks her up and
swatts her on the butt. she is screaming and crying and he drags her around the other side of his car, which was parked behind me. He yanked her up
and kicked her in the butt. I got out of the car and went around and confronted him. He turned around in a pissy attitude saying mind my own
business, and looked up at me. I stand 6'4 and go 240lbs, most of it in my chest and shoulders, not a little guy. He went pale as hell and the little
girl was shaking with fear. He denied kicking her, said he slipped, etc. He was out of control and I think I probably stepped in and saved the
little girl from a serious hurting.
I glared at him again and went back to my car and called the cops. He knocked on my window and had the little girl tell me he didn't kick her, that
she was being bad and deserved her punishment. I knew the cops were close, so I got out of the car, got down, and looked the little girl in the eye.
I asked her in a gentle voice while making eye contact if he kicked her. Her eyes darted to him and back to me a couple times, then lowered as she
said no. Cops finally pulled up and I gave my statement and left. He was a foster parent, which sent off all sorts of warning signs in my head.
I guess what I am trying to say, is if you see something happen, step in and confront them loudly, most of the time, they won't make a scene once
people are paying attention. I don't understand how people can lose control and hurt children. Children are precious commodities, and if there is
going to be any change in this country, the younger generations are going to be the ones dealing with that change.
