Allegedly Child Slapper, Lost His Job

Mon Feb 18, 2013 4:23 pm

Well, looks like this guy will be on an employement line for a while. Joe Hundley is no longer working for Idaho-based aircraft component manufacturer, Unitech.


Unitech posted a statement on their website saying that "as of Sunday Hundley was no longer employed by the company".

Meanwhile, the toddler involved in this incident, seems to be in good spirits. Watch video.

To be honest, if it had been my kid. Getting fired would have been the least of his concerns.

Quoting casinterest (Reply 1):

There are two aspects to this issue: the immediate reaction and the long term reaction.

If this happened during the days when my son was young, I would have taken the following steps:
- If my son and I were in a row with an obvious drunk, I would have been in the seat next to this person. I would also immediately contact the flight attendant if there were any indications that he were a danger to safety. I assume the FA has a much better understanding of the problem than I do and could determine if additional steps were necessary.
- If this person did slap my son, he would be immediately subdued using any methods necessary. As a father, I will not accept any risk of repeated hits, however small. I would also make sure that he would be met by police upon arrival.

On the other hand, this person clearly has a problem. I agree that I would not want someone with this problem as the head of a company but he should have reasonable opportunities for recovery. I'm very forgiving to a point: if Mr. Hundley had been through rehab multiple times in the past then I would expect an assault charge to result in prison time.
