Woman Arrested for Spanking Stranger's Toddler

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Police say a woman has been arrested for allegedly spanking another person's 2-year-old son in a Cincinnati store.

Gloria Ballard was due in a Hamilton County on Wednesday to face an assault charge.

Cincinnati police say the toddler said something that apparently annoyed Ballard inside a Salvation Army store on Tuesday. Police say she then told the boy's mother she didn't know how to take care of her son, put him over her knee, and spanked him three times.

Police say the two women didn't know each other and that the 44-year-old Ballard wasn't given permission to touch the child.

There was no attorney listed for Ballard.

Wanted to arrest someone? I don't think I ever have.

But I do know if a stranger put their hands on a child of mine, police would be needed.

I usually go the other way on this.
If I see someone hitting their child, spanking, slapping, I want to tell them to stop.

That said, this Gloria Ballard deserves the book thrown at her.

I would never dream of spanking some other persons child (although I have observed children out in public that have no social skills - which I attribute to the parents). This sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

I think people have become angrier in general for a lot of reasons.
This is just so over the top that I can not even imagine doing it. I dont even hit my own children. It most certainly is assault.

That's because you may be a good parent and resent anyone doing your job. I work with children and see a lot of out of control kids who need to be taught many a lesson. That being said, I've never seen violence teach anything but that violence is acceptable, when I believe it isn't under any circumstances (with the one exception--you're just too stupid to do what's correct). But c'mon, don't you see the humor in this story?

I said nothing about touching the child, it's just
that apples don't fall far from trees.
I was at my daughters volleyball game yesterday
and I pointed out to my wife a child (aprox. 4 years old)
who had a toy gun to play with. I asked what is wrong with this picture ?
Guns in schools, even play ones don't go together. I went up to the parent
when they were alone to point out to her that this was a bad idea.
Unfortunitly she did not understand or speak english

I've got to say that I'm a little suprised that so few have seen a child who could have benefitted from a little butt-slapp'in.

Before you judge or brand me, let me relate the following story.

This has been about 6 years ago. The scene was the funeral for Donna's grandmother.

Donna's father was in very deep grief, as was Donna and her immediate family.

One of the distant cousins had come with his wife and a 9 year old child. This "child" ran around the funeral home just raising total hell. Not only was he laughing loudly, he was throwing things at people, hitting people, and making a game out of running up and stomping people's feet (right across the arches). This little terror was certainly old enough to know to behave much better.

His parents were just oblivious to his behavior.

There are really no words - no way to fully convey the actions of this little monster. Eventually, he found his way to Donna's father and stomped on his feet and punched him.

This was at a funeral.

The kid ran towards me - just laughing out loud, making noise and just acting like a total future felon.

As quietly as I could, I grabbed the kid by the wrist and led him out a nearby door. He was punching at me, stomping my feet and kicking my shins, and just screaming (laughing out loud - not in pain).

I got him outside and tried to explain, telling him that the man whose feet he just stomped on had just lost his mother. The kid told me that he did not give a $hit.

He and I stayed outside for the remainder of the service. It was about 17 degrees outside, and neither of us had the proper type of coat on.

The little tyke objected, saying he wanted to return inside. I told him there was no way that I would let him back in that building.

I've got to tell you, my thoughts were to duck-tape this kid's hands and mouth and stuff him in a closet. I resisted that temptation. Can you imagine the headlines had I done that?

After the service, I located his parents and told them of the outbursts. They just shrugged it off and said, "well, that's just Timmy".

That is about the time that someone should have told Mom and Dad to pack Little Timmy up and go home then. And mentioned that it wasn't a suggestion.

I see similar types of behaviour from kids all the time. Parents make excuses for them. What excuse will they use when they are later visiting him in jail.

We all decide how to raise our kids. People will say that you should never spank a child and in the next breathe wonder what is wrong with the world and kids today. Hmmm.

As far as other peoples' children, don't touch is an obvious fact. A guy once shoved one of my children in a grocery store because she was in his way and he was in a hurry. She wasn't even misbehaving in any way just standing in line beside me. Well let's just say that he ended up very late. After they picked his ass up off of the ground, the police told him that he was lucky I only hit him once. Personally I say he was lucky that he stayed down. He was screaming that I should be charged and that he wanted to press charges. The police explained that they would do that right after charging him for a series of offences against a minor. Funny how that works. Even funnier to see him the next time at the store. I suggested that he shop elsewhere immediately. Left his cart of groceries and ran away. Pussy.

You think that's bad, check out this story, which happened this week right here in Augusta.

Woman arrested after child handcuffed, whipped with belt

An Augusta woman has been arrested for handcuffing and whipping her nephew with a belt, police say.

Neighbors called deputies after they reportedly heard screaming and calls from help Tuesday from 2219 Walden Drive, where the 7-year-old boy, his mother and the suspect, Latashious Unique Tart, live, according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Sgt. Calvin Chew.

When deputies arrived they found the boy’s hands had been bound with plastic toy handcuffs and he was beaten repeatedly with a belt. Ms. Tart, 26, said she was punishing the boy for getting in trouble at school, Sgt. Chew said.

“When the deputies got there she was leaving to go get another belt because she broke the first one,” he said.

The child was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital to be checked. Sgt. Chew said he suffered numerous wounds and welts to his back but did not need any serious medical treatment. The child’s mother was at work when the incident occurred.



It's NOT cool for a stranger to touch another person's child. But I DO believe in, "Spare the rod, spoil the child." Spankings are used as attention getters. After a few spankings, you try to reason with the child. When reasoning fails, spankings resume, until they get it in their strong willed heads that their bad behavior is not acceptable.

Rusty, I'm glad it was you and not me who handled that incorrigible boy at the funeral. I would have been furious and told the parents they had to take their wild child and leave, whether they liked it or not.

I thank God every day that my daughters are well behaved and thoughtful human beings.

I would've kicked dad's ass and said, "well, that's just Rusty." Somebody's ass needed to hurt that day.

That sure is a unique name, Ms Tart.

A dear old friend of mine was standing in a line in Kyrgyztan with her then 2 something year old daughter. Her daughter was crying a bit and a grouchy old man told her daughter to " shut up ".
My friend told her daughter, " My dear daughter, scream at the top of your lungs if you'd like as long and as loud as you can."
The young girl quieted down almost instantly.
The rest of the folks in line cheered for my friend and booed and hissed the grouchy old man.

How did she know the child wasn't a special needs kid?
I would refrain from violence against the woman, but I certainly would put myself between her and my child.
Is "Cinncinnati Store" a different way of spelling Walmart?
