Here is the setting for you..  you are in Walmart and your 2-year-old is tired and crying but you are trying to get the last of your shopping done.

A guy in your aisle tells you that “if you don’t shut the baby up, I will shut her up for you.” You ignore him because who is going to follow through with a threat like that.. in a Walmart of all places.

Then, when your little girl continues to cry into the next aisle, this strange man grabs your baby and slaps her across the face four or five times. That’s what 61-year-old Roger Stephens did in a Georgia Walmart.

The article on CNN doesn’t tell us how the mother reacted ,  Was she stunned did she freeze?  I certainly would have cursed him out and aggressively gone after him.Maybe kicked him where it counts.

Police said he hit her four or five times. "See, I told you I would shut her up," the suspect allegedly told the mother.

Authorities described "slight redness" to the toddler's face. Before he was arrested, Stephens apologized to the mother for striking the girl.

CINCINNATI (Sept. 16) — Police say a woman has been arrested for allegedly spanking another person's 2-year-old son in a Cincinnati store.
Gloria Ballard was due in a Hamilton County on Wednesday to face an assault charge.
Cincinnati police say the toddler said something that apparently annoyed Ballard inside a Salvation Army store on Tuesday. Police say she then told the boy's mother she didn't know how to take care of her son, put him over her knee, and spanked him three times.
Police say the two women didn't know each other and that the 44-year-old Ballard wasn't given permission to touch the child.
There was no attorney listed for Ballard
