This guy is lucky that wasn't my kid he slapped, because he would be in the fuck morg! While I do think parents do have a duty try to keep there kids in line and not bothering the people around them (esp in a restaurant), many times it is, but sometimes its not possible! If it happens in a restaurant I usually take my child outside to calm them down. However, no stranger has the right to lay a hand on someones child. If someone did that they better be prepared for a bloody fight! The arrogance of some people really pisses me off. That this guy was SOOOO discomforted because a child was crying in a store that he thought he had to assault a 2 year! What an asshole! People toss the book at him!
