It’s An Epidemic: People Hitting Other People’s Two-Year-Olds In Public

September 17, 2009 / Posted by:

Earlier this month, a Grinch-like pepaw was arrested after he slapped a crying two-year-old in the middle of Wal-Mart. That slap must have put something in the air, because it has happened again.

43-year-old Gloria Ballard was put in handcuffs on Tuesday afternoon, because she took a two-year-old boy over her knee and slappity slapped his nalgas three times in the middle of a Salvation Army in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Apparently, the boy said something to Gloria that annoyed her. My guess is that he asked her why she smelled like Amy Wino’s spit cup, because Gloria has been arrested before for public intoxication and disorderly conduct. Yes, you know you’re living the life when you’re drunkenly spanking children in a Salvation Army.

In court yesterday, Gloria claimed that she never spanked the child. She said he was upset, so she was trying to comfort him by gently patting him on the back. HA! That’s kind of a good excuse. The pepaw who slapped that kid in Wal-Mart should have used that one. He wasn’t slapping that crying girl, he was just trying to comfort her by caressing her cheek. Sometimes old folks get stronger in their old age (I’m making that up). They don’t know their own strength!

If found guilty, drunk ass Gloria could face up to six-months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

And if you have a two-year-old, you better give that kid a taser and dress ’em up in armor when you take them out in public. Slapping a stranger’s child seems to be the thing.
