JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WTVR) – The Department of Children and Families in Florida is investigating after video surfaced over the weekend that shows a man kicking a child down a skate ramp, according to

“We do not consider this to be appropriate behavior,” DCF spokesman John Harrell said.

The video shows a man kicking his six-year-old son down the ramp at a Florida skate park.

“Unfortunately parents get so enthusiastic about their kids and their abilities in skateboarding, or baseball, or football or whatever and sometimes they take it a little too far,” skate park operator Martin Ramos told “He said he was just caught up in the moment. He seemed very remorseful. He certainly understands the gravity of the situation and it seems like he is going to be answering to this thing for quite some time to come.”

    So do Blacks Latosha. That’s why you see more video and photos of black offenders than whites! Really, just stop playing the race card.

    He needs to be in jail. He kicked him off the ledge and then turned his back and just walked away. He doesn’t deserve to have this boy in his life. What an idiot.

    The words you are looking for are violence and surprised. Also your caps lock button is stuck. And you are, as always, a racist.

      Gessie Pete athynz, can’t you figure out that this LATOSHA character is a made up farce persona. “Her” intent is to elicit exactly the comments you made. Don’t be a dunce or regurgitater so much.

        Sigh – yet another anonymous keyboard warrior out to… what exactly? How many screen names have you made up just to comment on my comments? It’s like I have my own stalker. Go away internet creeper troll. Stalk someone else.

    That dude is a jerk – whoever was filing this should have been obligated to knock him on his a$$ for that. Or even better put that jerk on a skateboard and have someone kick him down the ramp and walk away.

    What a horrible father! He should never get that boy back. Oh and white people love violence? Pffttt….come to Richmond, see what section of the city has the most violent crimes!!!

      you dont even have to come to Richmond. Go any place the grocery store, malls, amusement parks. Many blacks hit their children and the bad thing is they bust them up side their head. No wonder they brains are rattled. Dont mean to turn this into a race issue but please think before you smack, push or abuse your child. No matter the color of your skin we are all pink inside. I was taught a hand on the butt is all that is needed not a hand upside the head.

    The people in this post entertaining that whites partake in violence more so than blacks to come back and say that it’s reverse in certain areas is exactly the issue. That comment sounds ridiculous to an obvious attempt to cause a debate on who’s race is the bigger piece of shat. Whatever. You all are jerks, just like this idiot dad.

    Looks like to me that father wanted his son to try something new. He might have been a little bit cruel but at least he wasn’t letting his son rot inside of a room with a video game.
