I just saw this story on the Today Show. The story is quite different than what you portray above. Today said that the mother of the 13 month old slapped the child in the face and the flight attendant saw it and took the kid away to protect it and went to the back of the plane to comfort the child, and then notified police after she saw the child had a black eye too.
She should be given a medal for saving that helpless child from her mother. The police that gave the child back to the parents should be shot!!
How could anyone hit a 13 month old child? That women should be tracked down and beaten, so she can see what it is like to be abused by someone larger than her. No wonder the kid kicked her, the kid is trying to protect itself.
You should make sure that stewardess is awarded for her courage in stepping in that situation. Anyone who sees a parent hitting a child should step in and do something about it. If you don't you are just as bad as the parent doing it.
