chomps1211 Glad I backed up a page and read a few of the latest comments before posting my own. Shred's assessment is pretty spot on IMO. The kid could have easily pitched forward and broken his neck on the bottom. The fact that you can hear him doing that whinny "kid is scared or pissed" cry, he probably wasn't really hurt. But it could have gone very differently.

Not excusing a douche move from dad, juss sayin' the kid doesn't sound injured, just scared.

Locally there are two cases in the news of a father beating his 6 month old son into a coma, and now claiming he needs counseling. Another where a dead infant brought in to ER by parents with severe burns to the bottoms of his feet.

Those are the people I want to eviscerate and let the rats feed on their living guts!!

This guys just your average, all too common, everyday clueless piece of shit.

Kevin137 5 years ago this would of been a non issue, apart from the fact that most people didn't video the social side of things was no way near what it is today...

And with the way things move now and some of the crazy shit caught on video at places like this, why would you even consider behaving in this manner...!!!

In London there is 1 cctv camera for every 3 or 4 people, and that does not take into account the amount of smart phones and people even riding bikes with action cameras...

You are in a caught on camera world now...!!! You can't say you didm;t see it coming... Haha

the problem comes with the viral lynch-mob flipping their collective shit. i guarantee you that most of the people up in arms over this have done stupid shit that they regret - maybe even in the course of raising their own kids... this viral outrage is a problem when shit like this leads to even crazier shit like people's kids being taken away from them and put into state care.

it does happen. people in the US have had their kids taken from them for the most retarded shit. something to think about.

if someone was there to beat the dad's ass onsite i'd be fine with that on some level... i dunno... no real easy answers here, but i hate the way this kind of shit blows up with the internet...
Nailed it. I'm sure he's probably a decent dad most the time. But I absolutely would've bounced him off the pavement had I witnessed this. I don't think he should have his parental rights yanked, and the kid probably doesn't either. Hopefully a lesson is learned, and dad comes out of it a better father.

i dont know how he was walking done the steps either nor do i think what he did was right and maybe it was with no concern but you dont really know that just by watching the video.
His body language makes it pretty clear, he's not heading down to check on the kid, he's walking away in disgust.

Do it to a kid who has no recourse at all and people defend the guy. I'm upset more for more the way he walks away with no concern than what he did. That said, I'm also willing to admit that for all we know he walked off and bought the kid an icecream and said he messed up.

I have no problem with tradnwaves4snow babysitting for Sneaky, they would have so much fun together. Having been boarding together with him and Sneaky, i know he is great with kids... Haha

I get where this is coming from, and i agree that it probably isn't as bad as it looks, but it is WRONG and that is the problem, as a parent you should know better, and this i think did over step the mark...

If you looked at it a different way where the gather was pushy but supportive, and maybe holding him until he dropped in with the same resulting ouch from the kid, there would be none of this...

BUT

What he did, if he did to an adult, a stranger, anyone... Is an assault, and as such is illegal...!!!

He will get what he deserves i'm sure...

hardasacatshead It wasn't. It was another young kid at the skate park filming it and he only made it public because he thought it was so wrong. Try clicking the link posted earlier where they interview the kid, the skate park operator and other parents who run around that park with their kids.

You've clearly got different boundaries for what's considered acceptable parenting. I'm ok with a kid getting a smack on the ass for doing something wrong. It doesn't hurt them, it just gives them enough of a fright to remember that what they just did was not right. But you can't kick your kid in the back, ever. If I saw that I'd have given him a fucking mouthful.
