    the plane

    After demanding that the mother of a crying toddler “shut that n------ baby up,” a male passenger allegedly slapped the 19-month-old across the face as a flight prepared to land in Atlanta last Friday evening, The Smoking Gun has learned.
    The shocking February 8 incident aboard Delta Airlines Flight 721 resulted in Joe Rickey Hundley, 60, being charged with simple assault, according to a U.S. District Court affidavit. Hundley, seen at right, is president of an aircraft parts manufacturer headquartered in Hayden, Idaho.

      today. Can you imagine how a 60 year old black guy who slapped a white 2 year old would be treated? I cannot believe he got off the plane and walked away.

      being. It is unfortunate that he is only 60. It will be awhile before we rid ourselves of this type.

      ATLANTA, GA. — The employer of a 60-year-old Idaho executive says it has suspended the man after authorities charged him with slapping a 2-year-old boy aboard a flight to Atlanta.

      The parent company of Unitech Composites and Structures in Hayden confirmed today that its president, Joe Rickey Hundley, was suspended pending the outcome of the criminal investigation, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.

      Al Haase, president and CEO of parent company AGC Aerospace and Defense, Composite Group, said in a statement the company is "taking this matter seriously."

      This racist intolerant jerk man is the president of his company. I'm quite sure he never expected that his behavior on a commercial aircraft would affect his livelihood, especially given that his company is based  in Idaho.

      But as they say, you are free to choose your actions in life. You are not given the freedom to choose the consequences of those actions.

      Choose wisely.
