    We're off to a good start here with the title "Company President". I assume he won't be holding that title for much longer. And as said "Company President" if he was flying on business, mommy should be looking forward to a big fat check. Otherwise, a personal check from him.

    And I hope the judge SLAPS HIM with some jail time.

    Disgusting!

    MOO

    This is terrible. A complete stranger feels the right to put his hands on someone's child? I wonder how the other passengers reacted to this? He should be in jail.

    There was a question on FB: What would you do if that had been your child?
    My response: That would be the last child he ever slapped (if you know where I'm coming from.) :furious:

    from link:

    Wonder if he's an alcoholic? (trust me I'm not excusing his behavior if he is, I grew up with practicing alcoholics who never obtained sobriety). If convicted then if he uses the defense of alcohol then they need to order rehab while he's serving his sentence.

    Poor baby.

    "simple assault" and a potential year in jail --- for:

    - attacking a child
    - on a plane
    - after making a racial slur

    ---disgusting.

    I think "Company President" has a LOT to do with why the charge isn't more serious.

    I hope "rich white man gets community service order after attacking black child on plane" is not the follow up report. Though I somehow doubt that'd make the news.

    From the dailymail article above:

    Hundley pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault in a Virginia court in 2007 after he was arrested following a quarrel with his girlfriend.

    He was first charged with simple assault, carrying a concealed weapon, and public intoxication.


    What a pig.

    "Restoring confidence in chief executives".. :doh:

    "Surveys show that 87 percent of the general population feel CEOs cannot be trusted."

    http://chiefexecutive.net/restoring-confidence-in-chief-executives

    "Hundley plans to plead not guilty to the assault charge, his lawyer said."

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/nat...er-baby-plane-article-1.1266072#ixzz2L7TWdCoB

    This is the guy running Snecma (now Safran), that's BIG $ he has to pay his lawyers with.

    Talkin' bout this guy:
    "Mr. J. R. Hundley, Rick has been President of Unitech Composites and Structures at Unitech Composites, Inc. since October 31, 2011. Mr. Hundley served as President and Chief Operating Officer of A&T Systems, Inc. since September 2009. Mr. Hundley served as Vice President of Acquisition and Logistics Strategic Business Area of American Systems Corporation since February 13, 2007. He has 25 years of senior leadership experience with leading corporations in the aerospace and defense sectors, with high technology products and services, such as Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and the Safran Group. Mr. Hundley served as President and Chief Operating Officer of Safran USA Inc. (formerly Snecma USA Inc.) since 2001. Mr. Hundley served as Vice President of Sales and Marketing for a division of Lockheed Martin Corporation. Mr. Hundley served as Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer for General Dynamics Product Support and Services Company (PSSC) and Vice President of International Sales and Marketing for General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS). He served as Chief Operating Officer of NISCO. Mr. Hundley Hundley is a graduate of Lindenwood University from which he earned a bachelor of science in management and a master of business administration in finance, and has completed senior leadership and lean enterprise programs at the Lockheed Martin Institute, and Program Management at the General Dynamics Institute."


    He can add "baby beater" to his CV. Along with "racist".

    He's head of a company that is a subcontractor for the Department of Defense. His big salary is paid with our tax money. DoD should order his company's contract cancelled until he is fired.

    Did they force him off thd plane? I thought people were no longer allowed to be disruptive in flight, and it sounds like he was even before assaulting a baby.

    couldn't they add the charge of it being a hate crime on to that? IIRC that adds an automatic (forget how many years) onto the sentence.

    I swear if I was the child's momma, I would have likely smacked the drunk. I cannot grasp why a stranger would even think about smacking someone's child. IMO

    I know, right?

    Who keeps a phrase like that in his head even?

    And who puts his hands on somebody else's child?

    How can he plead not guilty with all the witnesses around? Not to mention the child has a scratch under his eye.

    Amazing what these self-entitled rich racist folks think they can get away with. I hope she's hired a good attorney and takes him for a ton of cash!

    MOO

    He is lucky that I'm not the child's mama---:fight: :bigfight:

    I am assuming that toddler's daddy wasn't on the plane...or MR. CEO wouldn't have made it off that plane.

    Where were the flight attendants? On behalf of the airline, they have a duty not to overserve someone. Why aren't they mentioned as doing something after he allegedly slapped the baby? Obvisiously this guy had to be yelling fairly loudly for Ms. Bennett's witness to have heard him 12 rows away, which also means there should be more than one witness. I'm not sure I believe all of her claims just yet.


    I found an article that answers some of my questions above.

    When the plane began its descent Jonah's mother says he started crying, and that's when Hundley lashed out at them both.

    http://abclocal.go.com/kfsn/story?section=news/national_world&id=8994314

    At that point, Hundley, according to court documents, told Bennett to "Shut that n-word baby up".

    -------------------------

    "When I had looked at Jonah's face, he had, his eye was swollenÂ…and it was bleeding,"
    Bennett said. "I was just scared to death."

    So glad that there was witnesses who intervened and that can testify.
