No its not end of story. To me you sound quite fanatical!
In my book what you have just done with your own child could be construed as child abuse. How dare you put your son at risk from this terrible dangerous man that kicks children off of great heights!!
If this man is so damned awful and dangerous how do you know he's not right at this minute hunting down the man and child who made that video about him?
You have put your son at great risk by making that video, I mean, you did say "This man thinks nothing of child abuse".
If he's dangerous then you've put your child at risk. Correct?

The way you made the vid repeat, over and over and over, and slowed down over and over and over, to show that nudge, makes you nothing less than a maniac. Not only are you a maniac with nothing else to do, you are raising your child to be the same way. I am "sure" your kid just desperately wanted to talk to you about this? Yea okay. Why don't you discuss pageant babies, child gymnasts that never get menstrual cycles, or maybe, just maybe, something a little more important such as fishing, or gardening, or even building a house or spaceship with your 10 year old son for your next episode?
Hope you are happy that DCF is involved. Now you and your son can get them pushy soccer moms and extreme cheer leader parents next? Unless you have something better to do besides discredit every other parent that doesn't parent the way you do? You made me angry in case I didn't come across that way. Some people throw their children into the pool to learn to swim, some even let their babies play with snakes, who the hell are you to say?

Ya, I am a tad disturbed by his troll-logic myself. He can watch a grown man kick a 6 year old from a 15 ft drop and defend the act as ok. But can call a choice in editing "manic behavior".
Gotta love the human race sometimes...sigh.

YOUR child is like so many others these day in North America (not saying YOU are from North America) but they are whiny little babies. This fathers method although a touch extreme is GOOD for the kid. Jesus now a days every damn thing is about how to cuddle and protect kids from scrapes and loving everybody. Having moved from the UK to America I notice a massive difference in kids. The ones in the US are such babies!!
NO...your child is soft and needs a wake up call! Kids in the Poland and Russia and Germany are much tougher and those in 3rd world countries are tougher still.
No harm done to that kid. Maybe he will now have NO fear on that ramp!!

I am disturbed by anyone thinking it's ok. I'm sure if they spoke to that poor little boy, he wouldn't say it's ok. He must be traumatized that his own Father, the man he loves and trusts with all his heart and soul would do such a thing to him. How do you trust someone after such a cruel act? And that poor child must be in pain as well. Have you heard anymore on the case?
Oh and Kudos to you and your sweet, thoughtful and compassionate son for making the video!!!!

The lil whipper snapper in the vid won't ever forget this "lesson" his dad decided to give him. If it was me, I would be planning my revenge for many years to come.
Never had the cojones to drop in on a half pipe half this size when I was a teenager! My brother did.
He broke his coccyx.

As a new father, I cannot imagine doing this to my son. There's encouraging a child, and there is forcing your will upon a child. What a douche canoe. Is he trying to make his son a world class skater so he can vicariously live through him?! What a jerk. People who mistreat children are the lowest of the low. That kid is 6 freaking years old! Im 25 and use to skate myself ragged and I was always scared of dropping in on half pipes! a reply to: Mr Mask
