    Should this dad have his son taken away?

    This really angered me. I know some parents have that "throw em into the waster and they'll learn how to swim". Which isn't even all that bad if someone is standing right there next to the child. This D'bag could have seriously injured his son, and as you watch, there was no way for the boy to even stay planted onto the skateboard since he kicked it out from underneath him. Ugh!!

    The dad got fed up with what he considered to be timid behavior by his son and it was clear cut child abuse.

    Does the kid have a mother?

    The dad probably threw her off a roof. Rotten bastard.

    Maybe....

    I was asking if he had a mom at home because the question was should the child be taken away? If the father did this on his own and behind the mother's back, I'm not for advocating removing the kid from her without knowing if she poses a danger too. Removing kids should not be an action taken lightly IMO.

    I hope the kid remembers this when his father is old and drooling at the dinner table. (I shouldn't say that because that's advocating elder abuse, which IMO is as bad as child & animal abuse).

    If they're divorced and she wants full custody this video would work in her favor. I know you can't just remove the child on one incident, but the way he walked off all smug,and didn't even check to see if he's ok rings of psychopath !

    What the dad was terrible and just plain wrong, but that action alone is not enough to warrant child seizure. We can't just go around taking children willy nilly. I do, however, think that there should be certain actions taken to make sure things aren't more serious at home. If this father is willing to push his son off a ramp in the middle of public, one can only imagine what he'd do in the privacy of their home.

    Re: Should this dad have his son taken away?

    Assuming DHS/Protective Services gets involved, most times when situations come up like this protective services will get involved and someone will visit the home and make recommendations for services for the parent(s) to fix existing problems. Likely to be court ordered. Unless more information comes to light, not to us but tot he people involved, that indicates a history of dangerous incidents like this the kid shouldn't, and most likely wont be, removed from the home based on just this.
