    A toddler has no business being in a skate park, supervised or otherwise. The skater is travelling at relatively high speeds (for a skateboard) with no brakes when the toddler ran in front of him. He had no time to stop. Furthermore, he showed remorse and was trying to help. The mother completely over reacted. As a mom I understand over reacting, but resorting to violence is taking it too far, what is she teaching her child?

    Just another idiot ... personally, I would have decked her ass with as much force as I could muster ... it's called "self-defense"

    Female punches don't hurt.

    That's stupid to say. Even some week people can punch hard, both boys and girls. And there are some stong wommen too.
    I for example am a 17 year old girl who train kung-fu, if you think my punch wont hurt you're wrong.

    That boy should have laid that bitch out. That was purely an accident. Why was her son out there where they were skate boarding. She wasn't even watching him. That made me furious when she punched him.

    You would have no right to go off if you weren't watching your child when he got hurt.

    I have a right to go off if my child got hit by someone being careless. I don't have to have my eyes on my child 24 hours a day. That's impossible genius. Who are you to tell me what rights I have pertaining to my child. If your child was being careless and hurt my child, I'd knock your child's ass out too.

    Tense bitch awaiting for an excuse to unload her frustrations (sexual discontent possibly).
    I pity her husband.....if he's still around.
    I apologize if this sounded rude.

    Whether it was or not, she should have been watching her kid . You can plainly see it was an accident. It wasn't like the boy hit him and ran. He had remorse and apologized. She was just a stupid bitch ready to hit someone.

    The idiot was being reckless, skating on a public sidewalk and obviously going too fast for him to avoid hitting other people. Sure he stopped and apologized... bravo... I'm pretty sure he made the same careless decision the next chance he got.

    It was clearly an accident and the skater was feeling immediate remorse. She is lucky he didn't crack the momma bear in the face and put her in the hospital. Honestly she could be brought up on assault charges.

    That was clearly an accident and the skater was obviously sorry and concerned for the child's safety.
    The kid was not paying attention to where he was going (understandable given his age) and the skater immediately stopped and went back to see if he was ok.
    I understand the whole "mama bear" thing, but she waaaaaaaaay over-reacted.

    You said: "... it's clear the kid was riding his OWN skateboard..."

    Go back to the beginning of the clip and pretend you're the cameraman. The collision occurs at 0:05. At 0:06, the camera stops moving and the second board appears at the left edge of the frame; that's your board (the cameraman) that you just stepped off of, NOT the child's.

    She was completely out of line. She was more interested in attacking the skater than tending to her child. If she would have been watching her child she would have seen it was just a simple accident and could have responded to her child first,,,,,,,

    It was an accident. Why was the mom so far away from such a little one roaming in a dangerous place? Maybe she should slap herself instead.

    Why wasn't mama bear watching where her son was??? Why was he just walking around in aa skate park? From what I see in the video the kid shouldn't have been there, by the kids skating. Was it a skate park or just a regular park? She should have had a closer eye on her kid and what where he was. Its not like the skater didn't feel bad for what he did.

    That little kid was running free without his mom there to supervise him. I don't blame the skater or the kid, because it was just an accident. She was nowhere near the boy when the accident occurred and then completely ignored her son and went after the skater. She clearly over-reacted.
  • Marek Half-breed 2013/09/02 18:49:14

    You got a valid point. She should have paid attention to her kid.

    She did what my mother would have done. It is a reaction of the mother to attack anyone who threatens her child.
  • LdyLeo Marek 2013/09/11 18:43:54

    She had no right to hit the guy. This situation could've been dealt more maturely.
  • Marek LdyLeo 2013/09/11 22:39:28

    It isn't about right. It is more of an instinct of frightened mother.

    are you kidding me cat

    Why the hèll was she not watching her kid in the first place? Not his fault she wasn't doing her job. And I feel sorry for the kid, having such a cræppy role model in his life.

    Also, kudos to him for being the adult in the situation and not slugging her back. File charges against her instead.

    He didn't hit the kid on purpose. She really like OD'd...kids fall all of the time. And miss why weren't you watching your baby in a skate park?? How old is this baby?? I'm surprised he didn't smack her back.
