I understand there are mitigating circumstances. However, I am more interested in the subconscious life of racism. It is commonly stated that "a drunk man never lies." So his drunken state allowed him to tap into his 'true' self.

There were ZERO mitigating circumstances !!!!!

Right - that explains why the article comments extensively about his 'situation' and why the case is going to trial. What do you think his defense is going to be? I guarantee a defense centered on intoxication/impairment of judgment, etc. will come out of it.

This man has not been punished enough. Just wait until he gets found guilty and thown in jail There will be jailhouse justice. He should think about not bending over ,sleeping on his back,and he will get his in the"end", and you CAN COUNT ON IT

makemesmile you make me smile. He commited a crime when he abused the child under federal jurisdiction because he was in the air when it happened.

He slapped a CHILD. Race is only an issue because HE added it to the slap.

The fact that you feel a need to say he won't be punished and imply it is because the child is biracial is DISGUSTING.

Racism is alive and well and living in America. Until we can say, " I am a recoverning racist". you have problems. What do you do when you child bring home a person of color and tell you; " this is my friend." We must chang in order to come together as one nation. Not one kind, but one nation. Under God. If I see people of my race attacking a person of another race, I will the victim. If I see a group attacking a person of my race I will help him or her. If a person is being attacked based on gender, I will help the victim.

If my son were dying, and there were a little baby boy next to me crying, I believe I would remember my son, as a baby. And while it would be a miserable time to be stuck sitting next to them, I could never even feel the urge to harm a child, who is so much like the child I am losing once was. If that all makes sense.

To be honest he is very lucky that woman didn't hit him or that the baby father was not
aboard that plane, to say something insulting is one thing but to put your hands on some
one else's child is another, you could get the beat down.
02:59 PM on 03/21/2013
Correct. It would have been a beatdown of epic proportions. And I do mean straight up molly whopped!!!!

Of course he came with a mouth full of excuses. Not surprising.

Thank you. I echoed this sentiment before I read your post. I sure in heck wanted to slap the stupid nurse who cared for my mom, but I refrained.

There is no excuse for what this man did.

Sigh... What made Mr Hundley feel comfortable with hitting a baby? We are to be led to believe that his grief and sorrow were so great that this particular baby had to bear the brunt of it? I feel for Mr Hundley's dying son and for Mr Hundley's personal grief. Who wouldnt? Yet seriously, if this baby was already crying or being otherwise noisy, how in anyones sane mind can slapping the baby result in the baby quieting down? Did he really think this act of aggression was acceptable behavior? What personal social malfunction is he dealing with that made another person's child an object for animosity, let alone act on it? Scary. I suppose if this baby were mine I would have had to go to jail for my response. Wait a minute, one can defend their child I suppose and not go to jail dependant upon the level of the response. What a peaceful parent this baby has and I hope the baby is okay. Hitting fragile babies can result in heinous irreversable injury to them. So sorry they had to share a flight with the likes of Mr Hundley.

How did he make it off the plane???

I am sorry had I been that child's mom I would have slapped that man as hard as I could in his face and file child abuse against him for using racial slurs and physical abuse to my kid. I don't care that he has problems he should not have taken it out on that kid!!!!

He was distraught, hadn't slept in over 24 hours according to the linked article, and had been drinking. His lawyer will be pursuing a diminished capacity defense, which is why he has pleaded not guilty. A diminished capacity defense basically says that the defendant was so cognitively impaired he didn't make a conscious decision to commit the crime. It is most commonly seen with drunk drivers, who are found guilty of manslaughter or negligent homicide, but not murder.

there is no excuse to hit a baby.... this incident spoke volumes about his character... if anyone can hit a baby; wow.. they are monsters. I bet his son is happy he has passed over to get away from this monster.
