Man slaps child in Wal-Mart is the headline out of Gwinnett County Georgia. Roger Stephens has been charged with slapping a stranger’s child after telling the mother of a fussy 2 year old, “If you don’t shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you.” Stephens is facing charges for a felony count of cruelty to children. It appears that after Stephens told Mathews to “shut that baby up” he then slapped the baby in a completely different aisle. I can see getting annoyed by a crying baby, but the fact that he not only slapped a stranger’s child, but that he followed the mother and child to a different aisle is amazing to me. The child suffered some redness to the side of its face, but was otherwise unharmed after being struck four or five times in the face.
