Criticism Of Child Spanking Leads To Philly Bus Shooting

The video shows Chapman’s boy running up and down the aisles by one of the seven cameras on board. Finally she grabs the child and spanks him. A man sitting behind her doesn’t approve and he threatens to turn her in for child abuse.

She then makes a phone call. Investigators say she made that call to set up what is about to happen…

Full Story – HERE

An uncut version of the video on liveleak – HERE

Reasonable response i’d say.  That will teach people to mind their own business. /sarcasm LOL wtf?

it looks like that dude has a draco ak-47. cant believe no one got hit.

JWhite August 7, 2011 at 01:43 am

People these days…

Frank August 7, 2011 at 02:13 am

I’d probably be looking at the business end of their barrels if I was in that situation, but just like the guy who complained, first I’d move for cove, and second I’d [b]return fire immediately.[/b]

Mr Maigo August 7, 2011 at 03:34 am

You call that a spanking? All she did was swat his ass.
Also, wt-f’ing-f?

Andy August 7, 2011 at 04:12 am

jesus fucking christ

That one guy August 7, 2011 at 06:03 am

Well. Should have minded his own business :/

Another guy September 30, 2011 at 02:23 pm

So. One comment is grounds for a gang of criminals to shoot up a bus? I feel sorry for you :/

NikonMikon August 7, 2011 at 07:11 am

what the hell.

i wish that phone call had been recorded so i could hear how stupid it was. could you imagine it……

John August 7, 2011 at 07:27 am

When shaking off haterz ain’t enough…

Quint August 7, 2011 at 07:37 am

I wish someone had been armed and killed both the gunmen. That’d teach that bitch to call her hit squad on a bus full of people. (BTW, did you know the gunmen where her cousins)

Cameron August 7, 2011 at 09:12 am

While I agree with the mother for spanking her child (It’s about time someone does it these days. Parents have become way too soft on their kids), calling to have somebody KILLED OVER DIFFERING VIEWPOINTS….

I actually can’t even comprehend this video. I can betcha any money Pennsylvania’s gun laws are about to tighten dramatically.

That one guy August 8, 2011 at 11:05 pm

You’re on.

Antibubba August 7, 2011 at 10:38 am

Not differing viewpoints–a threat to call CPS. Busybody idiot, and all she did was swat him.

Another guy September 30, 2011 at 02:27 pm

No… she ordered a hit. If all she did was “swat him”, this blog wouldnt be here. Funny how you so quickly forgot.

Chris August 7, 2011 at 11:09 am

Defense Attorney claims it wasn’t an assault because no one was hurt!?!? Just because the guys are terrible shots (thank God) like all ‘gangstaz’, doesn’t nullify their intent. Defense attorneys are scumbags.

And the busybody should have been spanked as a child, then maybe he would have kept his mouth shut.

Chris August 7, 2011 at 11:12 am

Just thought about this: if justice is served Chapman and her cronies all end up in prison so the kid goes to CPS anyway. Guess the guy on spank-patrol gets what he wanted.

McThag August 7, 2011 at 02:51 pm

No battery occurred because no one was hurt. You’d think a lawyer would know the difference.

This is assault with a deadly weapon.

Josh August 7, 2011 at 03:43 pm

No battery occurred because no one was hurt. You’d think a lawyer would know the difference.

Actually, the defense can’t argue that no battery occurred, because such a thing doesn’t exist in PA state law. As you can see from the definition I provided earlier (down below), in Pennsylvania, assault includes not only the threat of bodily harm, but also the attempt or actual intentional injury to another person. It doesn’t require both, but includes both.

Quint August 7, 2011 at 04:29 pm

As far as I understand the law. If I were to swing a pipe at a man, it would be assault. If I were to hit him with it, it would be assault and battery.

Josh August 7, 2011 at 04:47 pm

If I were to swing a pipe at a man, it would be assault. If I were to hit him with it, it would be assault and battery.

That’s the two-bit, common law version of it, sure. But here’s the thing – you can’t be charged with a crime that your jurisdiction doesn’t recognize as a crime. If there’s no statute for the crime of battery, they can’t charge you with it! Maybe I didn’t explain it well enough, but Pennsylvania has no crime of battery; it’s all lumped into the crime of assault. Some jurisdictions just do it that way. So the defense can’t deny a charge of battery (only assault), because they can’t be charged with battery, because it’s not codified as a crime in that state.

McThag August 8, 2011 at 03:04 pm

Silly me for assuming… I need to stop that. Too easy to forget that each state has its own laws.

Every place I’ve lived has had assault and battery laws. Even some interesting discussions about landing a battery charge without the assault one.

Josh August 8, 2011 at 03:07 pm

Even some interesting discussions about landing a battery charge without the assault one.

Sure. If you walk up to someone and hit them without doing anything threatening first, you didn’t assault them. Kind of funny, huh? Punched in the face, but not assaulted.

Mark August 8, 2011 at 12:33 pm

Defense attorneys aren’t scumbags. It’s just that most of the people they represent are scumbags.

When you shoot someone in self defense and the cops arrest you so the DA can decide to charge you or not based on his judgement of how justified or not it was, you’ll be glad as hell to have a defense attorney from the start.

Chris August 8, 2011 at 12:49 pm

Alright, as a whole they aren’t, but this particular defense attorney is a scumbag. I am all for our rights to a fair trial and to have legal representation. But why would anyone look at this and try to say and assault didn’t occur? The attorney’s job is to defend their client’s rights so they don’t get railroaded not try to make it look like they didn’t do what they clearly did.

Joe Mama August 7, 2011 at 02:10 pm

What’s the big deal, this happened far away in Zimbabwe. Oh wait…

Josh August 7, 2011 at 02:20 pm

I love that the defense attorneys say that since no one was hit, no assault occurred. I’m sure these pieces of shit can’t afford top-notch defense attorneys, but any idiot should know that simply putting someone in fear of bodily injury is enough to constitute assault – you don’t have to actually injure someone.

18 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 2701
Simple assault.
(a) Offense defined.–A person is guilty of assault if he:
(1) attempts to cause or intentionally, knowingly or recklessly causes bodily injury to another;
(2) negligently causes bodily injury to another with a deadly weapon;
(3) attempts by physical menace to put another in fear of imminent serious bodily injury; or
(4) conceals or attempts to conceal a hypodermic needle on his person and intentionally or knowingly penetrates a law enforcement officer or an officer or an employee of a correctional institution, county jail or prison, detention facility or mental hospital during the course of an arrest or any search of the person. (my emphasis)

What happened here was well beyond simple assault. Included in the definition of aggravated assault is:

attempts to cause or intentionally or knowingly causes bodily injury to another with a deadly weapon

I’d say that fits here. I don’t know why the defense would be worried about assault charges though – this looks like multiple counts of attempted murder. People like this don’t need to remain breathing.

Vhyrus August 7, 2011 at 03:39 pm

Words fail me right now. How were these guys able to walk down the street with a freaking AK? Its like something out of Grand Theft Auto.

Vhyrus August 7, 2011 at 03:44 pm

I just watched the uncut vid. Apparently that thug managed to shove the damn thing down his pants and walk like that.

Josh August 7, 2011 at 03:50 pm

LMAO. I believe it. I was watching one of those ‘stupid criminals caught on tape’ kind of shows once, and they showed a young man who was caught on tape twice, in the same store, shoving the neck of an electric guitar down his pants and trying to walk out the door. He got out of jail the first time and went back to try it again. Genius.

Another guy September 30, 2011 at 02:30 pm

Ha! Never underestimate the stupidity of criminals.

James August 7, 2011 at 04:06 pm

I am not surprised at all, just look at them.

Diesel McBadass August 7, 2011 at 06:02 pm

A bit of an overreaction. I wish those dudes had drug that asshole off the bus and beat his ass up and down the street.

Josh August 7, 2011 at 06:06 pm

A bit of an overreaction. I wish those dudes had drug that asshole off the bus and beat his ass up and down the street.

Yeah, that wouldn’t be an overreaction either. And I’m sure that drugs play a regular part in those guys’ lives, but I think the word you’re looking for there is “dragged.”

NikonMikon August 7, 2011 at 11:30 pm

So let me get this right…. you wish the upstanding gentlemen of African descent grab the man who told the woman not to hit her child and violently assaulted him in public? What the fuck am I reading?!

Diesel Mcbadass August 8, 2011 at 03:36 am

Yeah, is that a problem? This wimp threatens to call child services over a swat on the ass. Perhaps they could have beat some sense into him.

NikonMikon August 8, 2011 at 08:37 am

Do us all a favor “Diesel Mcbadass” and never reproduce. While I am an advocate for beating little fuckups, I don’t advocate “dragging this guy off the bus and beating his ass up and down the street” just because his viewpoints differ from mine. You are way out of line in your poorly constructed contribution to the comments of this thread so restating what I’ve already said, never have kids.

032125 August 8, 2011 at 02:10 pm

Kids, don’t feed the trolls. It makes them grow and become more bold. Indifference makes them weak; forcing them to crawl back under the bridge.

NikonMikon August 8, 2011 at 02:22 pm

lol fair enough.

The defense claims it wasn’t assault because the a$$hats missed? That defense lawyer’s got balls.

ENDO-Mike August 8, 2011 at 12:29 pm

No kidding! What’s next, Loughner walks because Gabrielle Giffords lived?

Wulf August 8, 2011 at 12:34 pm

Really. The defense wants to claim no assault was committed because no one was hurt? I am pro-gun but they should lock those two up for the next 50 years. Calling for a hit because of words is completely insane but in line with the ‘ghetto gansta’ mind set. As for the guy who threatened to call CPS on her, he’s an idiot too. It was not a beating, it was nothing more that a swat. With a diaper on the kid barely felt that physically. As I have learned, spankings are more emotional that physical. I notice in the uncut version he is a complete coward running up front and literally climbing over the driver like a scared, little monkey. Pretty much worthless people on both sides of this.

Dillankid August 8, 2011 at 01:13 pm

Perfectly summed up.

ZackJ August 9, 2011 at 05:51 pm

What society are we living in nowadays when open firing on a bus with a semi-automatic rifle is not considered assault ? Should be attempted murder . What other reason would you have for firing a A-K towards a human being if you did not want to kill them?Besides.. who would even do something like that if they were not totally insane? Those animals deserve to be in prison for the rest of their lives.There is no defense.Would anyone want someone who is willing to assassinate a whole bus of people to get to one guy walking around in the streets with the rest of us?Hopefully these scumbags will get atleast 15 years in a maximum security prison.

That one guy August 9, 2011 at 08:44 pm

“What society are we living in nowadays when open firing on a bus with a semi-automatic rifle is not considered assault ?”

American society. Because we’re awesome like that. >.>

Josh August 9, 2011 at 08:49 pm

What society are we living in nowadays when open firing on a bus with a semi-automatic rifle is not considered assault ?

No one has determined that it is not considered assault. This hasn’t gone to trial. The only person(s) claiming that it is not assault is the defense, because it’s their job to refute charges against their clients. If these pieces of garbage are acquitted of assault charges, then you can get your panties in a bunch about it.

Microwave August 10, 2011 at 02:08 am

Must…not….say the “N-word”

Yahul Wagoni October 28, 2016 at 07:17 pm

We are in some strange new alternate reality here.
One man threatens to invoke government violence by calling a city agency, because he objects to a very standard child rearing practice.
One woman calls a bunch of locals to come shoot up a bus, none of whom except that one man said any thing to her about her child discipline act.
The former is merely obnoxious, priggish behavior.
The latter is assault with intent to kill.
What a strange long trip this has been.
I suppose the next development is replacing ballot box with armed warfare.
