Roger Stephens, 61, chose to endanger the welfare of a child, rather than defend it. While shopping at a Stone Mountain, GA, Wal-Mart, Stephens warned the mother of a crying toddler, “If you don’t shut that baby up I will shut her up for you.” The child continued to cry, and Stephens made good on his threat, slapping the two-year-old several times. He was arrested for felony cruelty to children and held without bond.
When it comes to the welfare of children, it is the responsibility of society to tirelessly defend their rights. If you see something hinky going on that involves a child, step up and do the right thing. Don’t worry about being PC. It’s in worrying about our own status that we fail our children.
