WTFriday: Oh, No He Didn't!

"If you don't shut that baby up, I will shut her up for you."

That's what Roger Stephens, 61 years old, said to Sonya Matthews, mother of a crying 2-year-old girl, at a WalMart this week.

And then he SLAPPED the baby. In the FACE. SEVERAL times.



Umm. Er. I'm not even going to speculate on what would cause this man to act like such a _______ (insert description of your choice).

Ms. Matthews reports that her daughter was unharmed -- a relief! But now, I can't stop wondering what I would have done in her situation.

I tend to freeze when I'm in shock, but I like to think I'd turn into a frothing-at-the-mouth, bringer-of-the-pain Mama Bear if anyone ever slapped my baby in the face.

And you? What would you do?

Don't mess with me, man.
