    Doesn't matter. Hell, the mother could've done this and she'd get the kid.

    All dads should keep kids if at all possible and the child isn't in danger (this one wasn't). Men have their custodial rights eroded since time immemorial.

    Why should the child be "taken away" and not the (alleged) abuser? If the child had pushed his father off of the ramp would you ask should the father be "taken away"?

    I don't want to rush to judgment based on one incident, but I watched the video just the body language and the way he walked away without even looking to see if he son was OK struck me as indicative of a potential abuser. Child services should definitely investigate the dad.

    I agree. He shoved that little boy off a wall and didn't even give a damn.if he was okay.

    Kids try your patience, but the adult needs to either hire a teacher with patience or learn to have them himself.

    Good lord, this was a little kid... what, 4... 6? What kind of a father does that? If I was the boy's mom, I'd be so incensed I'd be back in court requesting that the father's visitation be supervised, before the kid was thrown off a bridge and told to fly or die.

    Hell, I was angry that my daughter wouldn't get into the shark cage once so I threw her over board into shark infested water and nobody bitched about it. This guy made a dick head and immature move but not proof that his son should be taken from him.

    He didn't shove him... he kicked the skate board out from under him... big difference.

    You never know if that kind of incentive will work though... as a parent you have to sometimes try.
