Jessica Bennett Says “man” Smacked her 2-year-old Son on Airplane
A Minneapolis mother says a “man” smacked her 2-year-old son on an Atlanta-bound flight. Jessica Bennett said her son now has become apprehensive in the presence of strangers. Bennett said her son was crying on the flight when the 60-year-old “man” who was sitting next to her slapped her son on his face; causing a scratch under his right eye. Bennett says the “man” told her to “shut that n**** baby up.”
You might be wondering why I put quotations around the word man. If you slap a child or a woman you aren’t a man. Not in my opinion.
Bennett spoke exclusively to ABC News this morning.
I would normally give people the benefit of the doubt (you are after all innocent until proven guilty in this country) before I take a side. But in this case there are several witnesses to this altercation, including the federal Air Marshall. I don’t know how one could look at this cute child, or any child for that matter, and smack them.
This “man” is a racist, ignorant excuse for a human-being. I hope he gets the help he so obviously needs. If not, I’m sure he will get it in prison.
Good Luck Mr. “Man.”
