Man arrested for kicking toddler, yelling racial slurs at E. Wichita store



Posted: Wed 3:35 PM, Dec 26, 2018 | Updated: Wed 8:33 PM, Dec 26, 2018

WICHITA, Kan. The Wichita Police Department says it arrested a 31-year-old man and is investigating an incident at an east Wichita Dillons store it describes as a "racially motivated bias crime."

Police arrested 31-year-old Riff Trace for "battery that was bias and racially motivated" and for resisting arrest.

Police say at about 7:20 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to an assault call at the Dillons store in the 3000 block of East Douglas.

"Through the investigation, it was learned Trace walked into the Dillons store and kicked a 1-year-old victim in the back, causing the child to fall on the floor," police say.

Police say Trace did this while yelling obscenities and racial slurs. Police say when officers arrived, Riff "was being held on (the) ground by citizens."

38% of this countries citizenery openly and unabashedly supports the Hatemonger-in-Chief. Youre surprised when one of them kicks a child?

I'm not. Lock this fucker up for as long as his state will allow. It's the only way they will learn.

that I am no longer shocked by the ignorance and hate we are witnessing everyday. As long as we are still shocked, it gives me hope that we will survive this. God help us if we start to accept this as the new normal.

4. This guy should be locked up for a very long time.

I know that legally that likely won’t happen, but anyone who could do this to a defenseless toddler is a serious threat to society, and his violence will almost certainly escalate.

It affects different people differently. He has the "dead-eyes" look of a meth-head.

A toddler couldn't possibly defend himself, front or back. I doubt he would have dared to do the same to a grown man. Then again, there is a ton of stupid going around these days. But still, what an idiot.

19. Just you wait, though.....

it won't be long before Tucker Carlson or the gang at Breitbart leap to Riff's defense, saying, "But he felt deeply threatened by the toddler and acted in self-defense" or some similar nonsensical BS.

There is no limit to their rationalizations for their appalling behavior.

Of course the event seems to have happened just as it is reported. But this man is either drug addicted or mentally ill.

A terrible event for the toddler and his family.

He's been in and out of jail for a decade or more. Yeah,probably does do drugs but he knows what the hell he's doing when he spews Trump White supremacist talk while kicking a one year old BLACK CHILD face down onto a concrete floor.

If this would have been our Mayor's grand kid this POS would be under lock and key until his court appearance. Instead he's able to bail out--despite claiming he's homeless.

49. I've worked with plenty of 'thugs' and

more than a few white supremacists - in the prisons - and in detentions facilities. And plenty of other places, besides.

As I wrote, I think there is something missing from the story. I guess we'll see as the narrative continues.

50. Yeah...he paid NO BAIL,they just let him WALK OUT. That was missing from the first article...

"The man kicked her son from behind with his cowboy boot, causing the boy to fall face down, she said. The man tried to leave the store but bystanders tackled him and held him until police arrived, she recalled. The man went on a rant, Whitaker said, yelling the “N word” and saying he was a white supremacist. “He sounded like a madman.”

https://www.kansas.com/news/local/crime/article223614810.html#storylink=latest_side

Scroll on down in the article to his Criminal history and tell me if you think this racist NAZI POS will show up in mid January for a court date.

this country according to google. Now, I don't know if this is correct but give or take ten million, that is a whole lot of people.................
..3rd largest in the world..(again according to google)

So, we have a lot of "idiots" here in the U.S.A. Yes, he kicked the child (1 year old) in the back, and it made national news.. He is in the slammer no doubt...So, think about this..it could have been much worse...Yes, I can list how, but let your imagination answer how...Yes, he is an idiot and stupid. My guess is that the child was not seriously hurt, or the article would have said that...

Meanwhile DA Marc Bennett can't understand why this racist NAZI and his case were first looked at in the lowest court--Municipal Court. This FUCKER is a Trump White supremacist TERRORIST and SPEWED as much language when he was kicking this black one year old face first to a concrete floor. This Trump POS has a rap sheet a mile long and they let him walk.

He's out and claiming he's homeless on a $3500 bail. What bail bond person would plunk down $3500 hoping he'll show up in court in over TWO WEEKS?
