Nobody but nobody likes listening to a child crying...but the day a stranger set hands on MY crying child would be the day he said goodbye to whatever teeth he owned in his skull. I'm a rational woman, but anyone who put hands on my baby would soon be crying for HIS mama!
SEPTEMBER 2--Meet Roger Stephens. The Georgia man, 61, was shopping Monday morning at a Walmart in Stone Mountain when he crossed paths with Sonya Matthews and her two-year-old daughter Paige. The child was crying, which apparently greatly perturbed Matthews. "If you don't shut that baby up I will shut her up for you," Stephens warned Matthews, according to a Gwinnett County Police Department report. Moments later, Stephens acted on his threat, slapping Paige "across the face approximately four or five times." Though the child "started crying and screaming" after being struck, Stephens told Matthews, "See, I told you I would shut her up." After police were summoned, Stephens told a cop that the child was crying "and he just slapped her," according to the report. Stephens was arrested for felony cruelty to children and booked into the Gwinnett County Detention Center, where he is being held without bond. Paige sustained "slight redness to the face," but was otherwise unharmed.
According to the police report, "the suspect stated he told the mother that he was sorry". Sorry?! I'm telling you, there wouldn't be enough left of him to fill a Ziploc sammich bag if he did that to my kid...
