It’s not enough that an adult has been charged with hitting someone else’s child. He also uttered the N-word, according to reports. Even worse, he did this on an airplane, making it a federal offense. The FBI is investigating.
A Delta flight from Minneapolis to Atlanta was landing and a toddler was crying, when a passenger told the mother to shut up her baby and struck the child, according to an affidavit. No word on why Joe Rickey Hundley thought this would help matters. He is no longer an employee of AGC Aerospace and Defense, Composites Group.
Hundley is lucky to be alive. Mama Bears don’t like it when people mess with their children on the ground, let alone in the air. The practice of disciplining other people’s children was put to rest in ’70s. If anyone so much as speaks to my children with the wrong tone, I’m going to have something to say about it.
The other thing is, parents don’t like to hear their children cry. If they can do anything about it, they certainly will. Babies cry in all kinds of places, and they tend to cry on airplanes while they are landing. Their little ears can’t take the change in pressure, and the only thing they know how to do is cry. This happens regardless of the race of the child or his mother. The pain will pass and all will be well by the time the plane reaches the gate. Most folks know this, don’t they?
