“SHUT THAT N*GGER BABY UP” Man Allegedly Screams After Slapping Baby On Airplane

A baby was crying on an airplane, allegdly leading to a passenger yelling, “shut that nigger baby up.” Then, the man allegedly slapped the baby in the face as the flight prepared to land in Atlanta.  The incident allegedly occurred during a Delta Airlines flight heading toward Atlanta this week.   Joe Rickey Hundley, 60, is being charged with simple assault, according to a U.S. District Court affidavit.

Oddly enough, Hundley is of an aircraft parts manufacturer in Ohio.

Hundley is denying his use of the slur and saying that he didn’t slap the child or use the slur.  He does admit that he asked the mother to quiet down the child.   He also admitted that he was so distraught that he took a drink of liquor during the flight.

As detailed by FBI Agent Daron Cheney says that Hundley was seated next to Jessica Bennett and her two-year-old son.  The woman says that the plan was in its final descent and that the child started to cry because of the shift in altitude.  She says that was when the man called the baby by the slur and slapped him“with an open hand, which caused the juvenile victim to scream even louder.”

She says the baby has a scratch below his right eye to prove it.

Todd Wooten, a passenger on the plane, said he “heard derogatory language coming from the rear of the aircraft” and went to help.  He also saw the man strike the baby.

Hundley was charged this week with simple assault, and if convicted, can get up to one year in prison. This is not the first time he was arrested.  In 2007, Hundley was charged with simple assault, carrying a concealed weapon, and public intoxication in an incident that involved his girlfriend.  He eventually pleaded to a lesser charge.

    * * * B R E A K I N G N E W S * * * The baby was adopted. His mother was not a sister. That explains why the man is still alive.

    Crazy Vamp Doll, I think that you misunderstood what Mr. Williams was trying to say. I think calling him out of his name was uncalled. I’m quite sure the mother didn’t just sat there and said anything. I’ve worked for the Department of Corrections for 25 years. The Bible speaks of spare the rod spoiled the child, believe me if you don’t spank that butt they will stump that butt. So a little discipline doesn’t hurt. Some times we can love them to prison or Love them to Death.

    Dorian Mode, you sound so ignorant. Why don’t you just stop breathing. Right is Right You lost me. I DON’T CARE WHAT COLOR THE BABY OR MOTHER IS . Child abuse is child abuse. Babies suffer on the plan. Just because they can not speak don’t mean that he is ok. As you chew gum to ease your pain. What is going to ease the pain that the baby goes through. Now! I want to know what did the other passengers do about this abuse? (1) sue the air line. (2) child abuse (3) agravated assult (4) humiliated assult on a child. (5) mental angish. (6) hate crime on a child. If this were a white child, what would they have done?? He could have given this child brain damage. America, stop sleeping on the job. Let’s make America beautiful as it was planned. America ” you are getting very ugly.

    OMG! This is too unbelievable! I hate violence, but in this instant – like someone said, I would have given my child to someone and beat the holy crap out of him. I would still be beating him. Lord have mercy!

    Where are black brothers when these types of incidents occur? And why want a sister come and get a brother for help? There would be no need of a woman having to fight any white man that does this to a black child in my presence. Eric sounds like a wimp and maybe he needs to be slapped.

    Incidents like this, only happens due to Whites adopting Black Babies as “tokens.” Whites should NOT be allowed to adopt our babies, for the simple fact, they haven’t an inkling as to what these kids are going to have to endure. They are not “Black,” so there is nothing (no guidebook), to prepare them as to what to expect from their counterparts, on how Blacks are treated by them!!..It’s sad that they have begun to adopt black babies as a “fashion statement,” like a purse, or a pair of shoes. They (especially, this woman) had no idea that she needed to punch that SOB into the next mellinium!!!…He needed to be beaten to within inches of his sorry ass life…because our babies NEED OUR PROTECTION from these shifty, heartless, individuals!!..are NOT up to the job!!..God Bless our Children!!

    I don't have any kids myself, but if I was there it would be ON. Its one thing to be a racist idiot, but you NEVER NEVER touch a defenseless child. These racists "think" because its a black person anything is "ok". We have humanity and our kids do for damn sure. I hope a year in prison will do his racist a** some good!

    I would've lost my mind….choked his ass out right in that damn seat. what is wrong with people? and wtf is wrong with the police and district attorney for charging this bigot with simple assault? is there such a thing on an f-n child? NO. It should be aggravated child abuse, elevated to a hate crime with the obvious element of racism. its almost worse to hear of the lack of action on behalf of the civil servants than the fkn jackass who abused a strangers child in public. makes me sick to my stomach. wish he would do prison time for that. doubt the legal system will shine with justice anytime soon.
