    default Man charged with slapping toddler loses job

    Finally, someone other than an employee of a conservative organization who didn't live up to their standards or a waitress who posted about a customer's borish behavior on facebook is feeling the heat of doing something really stupid outside of work. If this person is guilty of what he's charged with, I'm glad there's the possiblity of some jail time as well as getting canned.

    Joe Rickey Hundley has left his job at AGC Aerospace and Defense, Composites Group after his arrest last week for allegedly hitting a 2-year-old boy on a flight.

    MINNEAPOLIS — A man charged with slapping a toddler on a Minneapolis-to-Atlanta flight is out of a job, his former employer said Sunday.

    Joe Rickey Hundley, 60, of Hayden, Idaho, is no longer an employee of AGC Aerospace and Defense, Composites Group, Daniel Keeney of DPK Public Relations confirmed Sunday night.

    Al Haase, president and CEO of AGC, issued a statement early Sunday that, while not referring to Hundley by name, called reports of behavior by one of its executives on recent personal travel "offensive and disturbing" and said he "is no longer employed with the company." Keeney would not say whether Hundley was fired or resigned. Hundley was president of AGC's Unitech Composites and Structures unit.

    Hundley was charged last week in federal court in Atlanta with simple assault for allegedly slapping the 2-year-old boy during the Feb. 8 flight. His attorney, Marcia Shein, of Decatur, Ga., said Saturday that Hundley will plead not guilty. The charge carries a maximum penalty of a year in jail.

    Shein did not immediately return messages seeking comment left Sunday evening by The Associated Press. Hundley does not have a listed phone number.

    The boy's mother, Jessica Bennett, 33, told the FBI their flight was on final descent into Atlanta when her 19-month-old son started to cry due to the altitude change. Hundley "told her to shut that (N-word) baby up," FBI special agent Daron Cheney said in a sworn statement. She said Hundley then slapped him in the face, scratching the boy below his right eye and causing him to scream even louder.

    Bennett told Twin Cities television stations on Saturday that the incident has caused her family a great deal of trauma and that her son, Jonah, had been outgoing but had turned apprehensive of strangers.

    Hundley became increasingly obnoxious and appeared intoxicated during the flight and complained that her son was too big to sit on her lap, she said.

    "He reeked of alcohol," Bennett told KARE-TV. "He was belligerent, and I was uncomfortable."

    Bennett said she was shocked by the racial slur she says Hundley used when Jonah started crying.

    "And I said, 'What did you say?' because I couldn't believe that he would say that," she told WCCO-TV. "He fell onto my face and his mouth was in my ear and he said it again but even more hateful. And he's on my face, so I pushed him away."

    Bennett and her husband are white, while Jonah, whom they adopted, is black.

    "We wish to emphasize that the behavior that has been described is contradictory to our values, embarrassing and does not in any way reflect the patriotic character of the men and women of diverse backgrounds who work tirelessly in our business," Haase said in his statement.

    That asshole should be fired. I remember when they used to hide under sheets. They're out in the open now. And to think you have the right to put your hands on anyone, particularly a kid. He deserves whatever he gets.

    "Hundley 'told her to shut that nigger baby up,' FBI special agent Daron Cheney said in a sworn statement."

    IDK what criteria the FBI has now about using actual quotes verbatim in sworn statements, or if the use of 'Non-word' is just the AP way of obfuscating offensive slang, but I hate censorship. For all we know he could have been referring to the baby being naked (Srsly, 'Nude & Natural' magazine once had a feature called "N-Word Spoken Here.") If hate speech is spoken then let us hear it in all its vitriolic force, don't sugar coat with non-words.

    As for the drunken asswipe, he should do some jail time for hitting a child like that. Maybe the time will let him dry out and reassess his hatred and his substance abuse problems.

    I actually can see the FTA making airlines quit serving alcohol on flights with this rash of out of control drunks and other crazies on planes. Maybe the pressurization is having an effect with the alcohol but the buses don't allow drinking so why not the airlines.





    If it's the right direction - swim upstream.

    That piece of crap does look crazy. Good he lost his job. What a selfish douche. Crying babies can be annoying, but they're babies. It's what they do. People tend to forget that we all did it.

    I'm just curious, are there any eyewitness accounts? Did anybody even try to intervene?

    This was from a different article:

    Agent Cheney added that Bennett received help from other passengers on the Delta flight. Todd Wooten, who was seated 12 rows ahead, told authorities that he 'heard derogatory language coming from the rear of the aircraft' and went to see what was going on.

    'According to Mr. Wooten,' Cheney wrote, 'he saw Joe Rickey Hundley strike' the child.

    FireIce... im with you... was thinking the same thing.

    the interesting thing here is that not one person above mentioned that these are ALLEGATIONS... i would rather have him fired if he is found guilty. otherwise, as we have been seeing increasingly over the past couple of decades, one is convicted in the media.

    also... wth is simple assault doing in federal court? did they do that cause of a hate crime for the name calling, or because it was an FAA regulation type of thing? it was descending so it was in GA airspace.. why wouldnt they charge him in GA?
