    I think that was just parental instinct kicking in. Someone hurts my child, I`m not stopping to ask if they`re mentally disabled.

    I kinda loled for a second,guess I`m a bad person

    If it was my kid,I would have gone apesh*t too,then be like,"whoa...darn,he`s disable..f*ck" But I would still be pissed,but less and in an non physical way

    seriously that kid looks so adorable skipping in,all carefree...like who wouldn`t freak out if you got kick in the nads

    I think it was unnecessary, but I wouldn`t say either of the ways are bad.

    For punching him, the guy just walked in (it looked like) and he might not have known the guy was disabled and it could have just been a reaction, I mean hey, its his son.

    For not punching him, it was a little unnecessary to hit him because he barley kicked the kid, at least give the guy a warning and see why he did it before just straight up KO`ing him

    In conclusion, I am not taking either side

    That`s a tough situation. The guy with Down`s Syndrome doesn`t get card blanc to do something like that, though. That`s just ridiculous. I think I`d just chew him out. If he injured my kid, then it`d be lights out.

    Um...he idn`t really "kick" the kid hard. It was more like a light tap. I was expecting it to be like some kind of kick in the face.

    I wouldn`t have punched the guy but I would have firmly told him that what he did wasn`t nice and he should apologize.. And I only say this because I have been friends with people who have had far worse than down syndrome and it truly isn`t their fault. They just excite and anger easily.

    That kid looked fine. The guy probably over reacted, but I`ll bet he felt ok about it later, though, because I`m sure the guardian chewed him out for beating up a retarded guy (when really it`s her job to look after/control him).

    I see what you are saying, I would have probably grabbed him by the collar and yelled a lot, but I know hit him or not, I couldn`t have stayed calm. I have a niece and a nephew that I am very protective of.. its an instinct. (I keep them 33% of the time.. so they are in a sense.. my kids too.)

    GothicQueen,I got a cousin with down and he`s not violent,just overly excited.He was taught not to kick people..But every ones different so I can get where you`re coming from.But I think it`s more of a instant reaction on the father`s part. He didn`t continue to hit beat the guy up and it`s obvious he noticed it after the punch

    I saw this the other day. It made me think for a good, long while. It`s hard to say who was in the wrong. The quickness that the mother reacted made it seem like it was just an automatic response to seeing her child in danger. She probably didn`t size up the situation. It was a non-lethal attack, so I am going with the age old saying, "An eye for an eye." I feel bad about the Down`s man, but I hope he was able to learn a lesson, and I hope nobody was seriously hurt.

    LMAO - its "carte blanche" - from the French for "white paper" - the military term for surrender, originally "charte blanche". The idea of sending a piece of white paper to your conqueror is that he can write his own terms on it, ie he has free reign to demand whatever he likes from you.

    I think it was an over-reaction on the father`s side, but then again - it is his kid and he didn`t know really if the guy was going to stop right? The woman may not be the guy`s guardian. Many people with DS don`t need guardians if they`ve been raised properly and not shoved through foster homes ending up incredibly sheltered. If she was his guardian, then yes, she should have kept a closer eye on him but - sh*t happens. The kid was no worse for wear by the little tap he got. The father over-reacted but looked like he realized his mistake after the fact. Not sure how the guy felt though; maybe a concussion, who knows. Not good at any rate. :(

    I`m sorry and kind of disgusted by everyone who says about giving the disabled kid a `stern talking to`. My son is 2 1/2 and if anyone even hurt a hair on his head, I would knock them to the ground. Disabled or not, you should know better. And if you don`t? Then you shouldn`t be as free as he was. I`m sorry, but I am 100% on the fathers side with this one.

    it was an overreaction i think, the first thing id do as a dad is angrilly find out whats going on, perhaps threaten him a bit here and there and then once i know a little bit more about the situation id go and probably hit them back or something.

    definately not the full charge.

    plus this downs guy might not know whether or not what hes doing is bad at the time of doing it etc. i mean id prolly shout angrilly at the guy and get close to hitting him but id feel bad afterwards for sure

    The mentally disabled man has perhaps a mental age of a seven-year-old.

    As a parent, I can say without a doubt I would not have punched the disabled man. I would even go further to say that if you are one of those who thinks the disabled man got what he deserves, neither you or your offspring are going to find much success in this world.

    It`s obvious how few of you have ever interacted with a mentally disabled person. They don`t always act rationally! You can`t hold them to the same standards.

    It`s people who jump to conclusions like that who throw around the word "retard," a horrible horrible word not unlike "I am a racist!."

    Well if he knows how to pick up a cell phone and talk on it then he should know not to go and kick kids, the punch wasnt the solution but I can`t say I blame the guy. Also what about this... what if he stabbed the kid or kicked him harder? Is he still protected and would everyone say "oh he is just mentally handicapped" I don`t think it works like that.

    Mostly leaning towards the fathers side here, though I would like to have some form of audio ot know if the kid said anything along the lines of "hey look, it`s a retard," or something.

    Not to mention, the kid had apparently just walked in the store, meaning the father likely just saw some random man walk up and kick his child. I`d be pretty ready to knock someone out after that myself.

    However, I do have to say this... If a fully grown man can`t control his actions, be it due to mental disability or whatever, maybe he shouldn`t be allowed the full freedoms of the rest of society.

    If that guy had kicked any harder, it could have seriously jurt the kid. Not to mention, look where he aimed...

    this is really sad because it is such a tough situation to take a side on. the man obviously didn`t kick the child hard because the kid remained on his feet and honestly really didn`t seem fazed by it. i understand the mans reaction of punching him because it`s normally a parent`s first instinct to defend their children but i really am not sure the father even got a good look at the man before he punched him because he literally just ran at him, i`m guessing he may not have known. i really believe that the man`s disability is at fault for his behavior and if he was not mentally disabled this would not have happened. i`ve worked with people who`ve had downs syndrome and their maturity levels are that of toddlers. so basically i see both sides but i really belief if the father saw the mental disability of the man he probably would`ve just removed his child from the premises and yelled at him.

    "what if he stabbed the kid or kicked him harder? Is he still protected and would everyone say "oh he is just mentally handicapped" I don`t think it works like that."

    Actually, it works exactly like that if the justice system works correctly, kind of. If a person is insane or mentally disabled when he/she commits a crime, then he/she is not really responsible for her actions. What I don`t understand is that they are still locked up sometimes, which is just sad, because it wasn`t their fault.


    On another note, how do you know that the man was talking to someone on the phone. I have a mentally disabled sister who talks on the phone to no one, because she enjoys it. This could be the same thing.

    Without trying to be hostile, whoever holds the downs man 100% responsible for what he did needs to get out volunteer with mentally disabled people. Once you get a first-hand perspective, then you can make up your mind.

    I`m definitely siding with the Dad. I don`t care what the guy has, he kicked a random kid for no apparent reason! And if I was the kid`s father, I would have done the same thing.

    And as someone mentioned, if he was mentally proficient enough to be talking on his cellphone, he`s intelligent enough to know that kicking random people isn`t something you do.

    The kid looked like he was going to go and take the mans spot in line, therefore perhaps setting the mentally challenged person off, and provoking him to get the kid away from his spot. Not going to take a side on it, just trying to say why I think the man kicked at the child.

    and you are all acting like he kicked the kid really hard...hes a little kid and he didnt even fall over... he took like.. a step back, i dont think thats reason enough to knock out a mentally disabled man.

    There`s no doubt in my mind that if someone tried to hit a kid of mine, I`d steam up in a heartbeat.

    You know those things that just tick you off instantly and make you go freaking wild?

    Yeah, that`s probably one of those things.

    I wish there was sound so I knew why that idiot tried to kick the kid. And also, I think that he missed the kid with his kick, if he had hit him then the kid prolly would have fallen over.

    I think the guys reaction was just reflex more than anything. When you see an adult kick your kid, you don`t stop to think about how hard it was, or if the guy has a disability, or anything else. You react, rightly or wrongly, on gut instinct. I think this is likely the case here, cos the father didn`t follow it up at all, and backed off. Is it right to hit someone with a disability, or to hit someone in front of your kid? No, it`s not. But all situations need to be taken in context, and in this case, I saw a father reacting to a threat to his child. If there was a significant time difference between the kick, and the punch, or if he followed up with more punches, then it would definately be wrong. In this case, I don`t necessarily think it was right, per se, but it was certainly understandable.

    "what was the retard thinking?"

    Ah, that is the question...

    Since a person with Down Syndrome is usually quite gentle and kind to others, I am fairly certain (also judging from the body language of everyone in the video) that he wasn`t trying to hurt the kid, rather, he just wanted to see what would happen if he kicked at the kid. Sadly, he found out. The punishment (the very strong punch in the face) certainly does not fit the crime (kicking at the kid so softly that the kid didn`t even budge) - the dad should be charged with assault and battery. Especially since a person with Down Syndrome is not considered an adult, legally, then it is like beating up a child because that child kicked your kid (not hard enough to hurt the kid) - imagine if this dad had beaten up a kid on the playground who was threatening his kid, oh wait, that happens ALL THE TIME! Just the other day, a dad tried to beat up a 13-year-old at a soccer game because the boy roughed up his kid during the g

    Man i was hoping to see a little kid get punted across the room or something. Also, kids are such punks these days i am sure that he deserved more than just a little tap. cripe i think the dad should take a parenting class for hitting a guy with downs and letting his kid run around like that.

    That dad has some surhuman reflexes for acting so quickly... or else he was clearly expecting something something like this to happen... kinda like "it`s not the first time someone kicks my son because he`s so annoying." you know what I mean?

    The child was not seriously hurt. There are cops out there who can settle this. Press charges and make money. Buy your son a brand new PS3 and everybody`s happy.

    Well I was expecting a full-fledged punt, but this is nothing to get worked up about.

    It was a tap vs. a huge swing.
    Both were in the wrong, but a "Hey, what the hell?" to the downs guy would be appropriate.

    For all anyone knows here that kid was making fun of the guy. I know it doesn`t justify him kicking the kid, but maybe he doesn`t know how to handle the situation being disabled. If i had have been in that place i would have restrained the father, called the cops and made sure the person with down syndrome knew how to sue for the other guy using excessive force.

    Also to those people so liberally using the word retard. You are complete and utter scum. I have worked with people with down syndrome and they are great people. Your using that term in an abusive way, its no different from saying I am a racist! to a coloured person. Its bloody sickening.

    ... Has nobody here got a sense of time?

    The father walked in on his son being kicked, within 2 seconds he had hit the guy.

    The entire event took about 6 or 7 seconds.

    "The kid was making fun of him and then the father knowing the guy was disabled decided to himself hmm, what should I do, I mean yeah he kicked my kid, but he is handicapped..."

    No! "WTF, dude kicked my kid" *Smack*

    It wasn`t a thought through process.

    "but maybe he doesn`t know how to handle the situation being disabled."

    Then maybe he shouldn`t be in that sitation (without better supervision).

    Would you still be using that reasoning if he had seriously hurt someone, Lorodiam?

    By the way, why do you say "coloured"? Do you think that stating someone`s skin colour is offensive, as if they should be ashamed of it, so you use the euphemism "coloured" instead?

    There is a saying that people are not allowed to be in public if, "They are a danger to themselves or others." Clearly, this guy is a danger to others, and I highly doubt this was his first violent outbreak.

    I am not a violent person, and I don`t think I could pack a punch. I fully commend the father on protecting his child though. You just don`t know what people are thinking, and you certainly don`t know if the kicker has any intention of further harming the kid.

    In short: Dad was right. SOL for the Downs Syndrome kid.

    Oh, and to the person saying something along the lines of, "He was curious about `tapping` the kid." Look at the huge rush he made. As soon as the kid comes bouncing in (The wonderful thing about tiggers...), the Downsy guy RUSHES in to kick him. Maybe he`s just not a good kicker, but he sure meant to hurt him.

    "If a person is insane or mentally disabled when he/she commits a crime, then he/she is not really responsible for her actions."

    That is completely wrong. Having a mental disability in no way gets you off the hook. In most cases they have to go to a minimum security prison that has a psych ward, so that they can recieve therapy. Its not like they get a lighter sentence, or even no sentence at all.. In some ways the sentence is worse, because if they are found out to be faking a mental illness, they are brought up on charges of purgury (sp?), and that is heftier than what the original court sentence would have been.

    Musoko no i use the term coloured cause i use the term coloured don`t think into it too much mate. Maybe its because alot of people around me use that term... stop trying to twist it.

    Also i wouldn`t use the same reasoning if he seriously hurt someone. BUT he didn`t seriously hurt anyone. He lightly kicked a kid, how do you know that kid wasn`t giving him dogs abuse?? What do you do in that situation, sure you wouldn`t kick him but you may tell him to drat off, which could end up with the same result. I guess none of us know the whole story so we can`t comment properly really. But i can tell you now, the guy who hit him did use excessive force and would be in trouble.

    Or maybe not everyone solves problems with violence and gets the facts first before getting to the breaking point. Some people are able to maintain a level head. I myself have never even hit anyone. ALmost got into a fight once though but thats a different story.

    I`m no pacifist I assure you but I just don`t think it`s wise to jump to conclusions and act without thinking some through first.

    I don`t think I`d feel bad about myself upon discovering that the man had special needs either. Maternal instincts.

    "The breaking point" happens as soon as someone kicks my kid. I`m a non-violent Christian (oxymoron?) and if it were me being struck, I would like to think that I could keep my cool at least to begin with. Any parent who sees their child hit or kicked by anyone other than a playground friend is going to do what they immediately deem necessary to protect their child from further harm.

    I work with mentally retarded people, *IF* this guy WANTED to hurt the kid, he would have. He could have sent the kick across the room, they`re THAT strong.

    I don`t think the Dad knew that he was retarded, if he did, he shouldn`t have decked him, he wasn`t hurt, and it was a tap. But, I can understand the punch first, talk later mentality, and would probably have the same reaction.

    The person with the illness shouldn`t have kicked the kid, however, it`s not entirely his fault. If he is known for outbursts like that, where was his caregiver? Unless he`s highly functioning (and if he`s prone to violent outbursts, he`s not) he wouldn`t be alone anywhere. Not only that, but his caregiver would know about the problem and should have been there to defuse the situation before it started. There are signs that anyone who works with MR can identify as triggers to behaviors. I have one kid who always rocks when he`s about to squeal really loud. You can stop the end result before it happens.

    hmmm this one is hard. ill give the dad some credit and say he probably didnt know he had downsyndrom at the time. all he saw was some dude kick his todler, and his first instinct was to protect his kid. i say in this instance violence was the answer. ONLY because this guy could have done somehting alot worse to this kid, i mean if some1 kicks a kid who knows what their going to do next, the guy was just protecting his family.

    Yeah. I`m all for what the dad did. He defended his son. Knocking out the guy, well, it was necessary force. What that dude did - whether mentally handicapped or not - is WRONG, it is VIOLENT ASSAULT and he should be arrested for it. The dad was defending, and thus did the right thing.

    I would have done the same thing. I don`t care who you are; if you hit or kick one of my kids, I will retaliate and it will NOT be pretty.

    I think it is just a knee jerk reaction. When someone makes an attempt to hurt your child, you do something about it. Or most parents would.


    I don`t care if he kicked lightly, if I where out with my nephew (no kids) and an adult stranger walked over and did what he did, I would have likely done the same thing.

    Racoon, I agree. If that were my kid (the Down Syndrome,) I would have her ass fired. There are HUGE cues when someone with MR might have an outburst, in most cases, you can tell when they wake up that it`s going to be "one of those days."

    If I were the toddler`s parent, I`d seriously think about suing her for negligence if I were arrested. If she had been doing her job it *might* not have happened.

    I think the kid must have scared him or something, but the father was in the right. If you are a danger to people or even yourself you do not belong in public. You belong in a cage or tied to a tree.

    I would have totally knocked the motherfker out too. If you are conscience enough to think about kicking somebody under the age of 3 for scaring you then you are conscience enough to get knock`d the fuggout.

    Stay home next time. This is why we don`t need caretakers, we need natural selection. =)

    p.s. To people who are offended when somebody says the word retard. Get over it. Retard is to Bailout as Mentally ill is to Rescue Plan. It`s the same fking meaning lol.

    If he doesn`t, he shouldn`t be out in public at all.

    That was just... bad. >->
    I can`t describe it any other way. It was NOT okay for that man to kick the little boy, even if he does have down`s syndrome, but punching disabled people in the face and knocking them unconscious is pretty awful too.
    And God, look at the little boy. He just stood there, watching his dad punch a mentally retarded man. The kid didn`t look hurt, actually. >-<

    im guessing the woman was a carer/parent, and maybe the guy was playing somehow, didnt even look like the kick got him, but still if the father saw that the gut reaction is `get the f*ck away fom my kid!` ... how do you know he wasn`t gonna kick again harder?

    I guarantee you almost any parent would have the same reaction. The guy probably didn`t know he had Down Syndrome.

    this is a realy tough situation...!

    my sister got downs syndrom and i have meet allot of other kids and more grown people with Downs, its like they live in their own world that gets afflicted by things around.

    ofc its not OK to kick a kid, its always a bad thing no mather what (well, not if mankind depended on you kicking a 6 year old) but the Downs man can`t be realy realy realy that much blamed.

    as a parent i would do the same thing. but then feel bad for hitting a mentaly dissabled person that didn`t know bether.

    deathxtra that was the most close minded stupid comment i have ever heard.. "if he doesnt have his carer he shouldnt be aloud out in public at all?"
    he is a person not a pet i dont know if you actually know any people with down syndrome but once you get past the handicap side they are just like you and me, you wouldnt extradite a man with no legs and keep him indoors, so dont give me any bs opinion and state it as a fact.
    i am only 17 but have worked with people with handicaps for many years.
    oh and the parent was in the right he didnt appear to know the man had down syndrome

    retardation and down syndrome are 2 different things and also calling on natural selection to take care of people with handicaps obviously proves how darwin failed to show how some people arent that different from apes after evolution. seriously people cud we please stop refering to him as a retard he has down syndrome

    The guy did the right-ish thing considering that he probably didn`t realize he had Downs.

    ShadowMaus--

    Natural selection really wouldn`t apply in this situation. I`m not entirely sure, but I think down syndrome is a mutation in a certain chromosome, and is not governed by a recessive gene. So, basically, you have about the same chance of having a child with down syndrome as would a couple who both had down syndrome.

    Again, though, I based this all on hearsay (too lazy to research) so if I`m wrong then please someone point it out.

    Down Syndrom occurs because of trisomy 21. Its where there are 2 extra pairs of chromosome 21.

    the way he kicked the kid kind of looked like half on purpose and half by accident. If that makes sence to anyone else

    Not sure if anyone noticed it, but it looks like the guy with Downs MISSED the kid (it also looks like the kid has some pretty good dodging reflexes)
    And PUH-LEAZE. Light tap? If someone kicked a little kid that hard in the nads that little kid would be bawwing on the floor faster than you can say "Downs Syndrome Guy got knocked the FUDGE out!"
    I don`t necessarily blame the DSG (Downs Syndrome Guy) or find him responsible to the full extent, but his caretaker needs to be fired. Preferably after she gets her child kicked BY the DSG >.>
    I also find the parent in the full right. That was no "light tap" and the DSG`s foot didn`t just "graze" the kid (or rather, it wouldn`t have, had it hit). Try to kick my hypothetical kid in the nads and I`ll knock your block off!... or at least try. I`m not exactly the Hulk... or even Urkel...

    ok, saying the kid didnt even cry doesn`t know kids. there`s usually a 5-10 second delayed reaction before they start making any noise. Also, in that gap the dad jumped in and decked the guy, so the kid is still gonna be shocked and not cry.

    Also, I have 3 kids and I swear to god you hurt any one of them I`m putting your ass in hospital, I don`t give a poo who you are.

    A kick!? that was like a mild shin tap. That guy is old, and the kid is like what 7? He didn`t even flinch then the guys knocks him out. You can see in his face he has downs. Bah, someone should knock out the block, then kick downsy in the shin, and call it even.

    I think most fathers would do the same thing if they saw someone harming their child. He probably didn`t realize his child wasn`t being hurt. If you saw someone kicking your child, I`m sure you`d react before thinking too.

    i`d have done the same thing. people with down`s syndrome do know right from wrong, and none that i`ve met would ever think of doing that to a kid, or anyone. in a `different` set of circumstances, i worked with a group of disabled people at a factory, some with down`s syndrome, so i have interacted with them and know how having down`s syndrome can effect you.

    "The breaking point" happens as soon as someone kicks my kid. I`m a non-violent Christian (oxymoron?) and if it were me being struck, I would like to think that I could keep my cool at least to begin with. Any parent who sees their child hit or kicked by anyone other than a playground friend is going to do what they immediately deem necessary to protect their child from further harm.

    I don`t think the father did anything wrong. It was obviously a gut reaction and I don`t know that he knew the guy was disabled. Even if he had known, his first concern would have to be with stopping the disabled guy from attacking. I mean, he didn`t beat him on the ground.

    Ancillary Question: Why was the disabled guy kicking the kid anyway?

    An adult kicks my kid, disabled or not... I`m going to knock him/her down.
    I didn`t even see why he kicked the kid, not that anything would make it justifiable. The kid just walked into the frame, doing nothing and this guy kicked him for no reason.
    So, if he`s disabled and dangerous, he shouldn`t be out publicly! If he`s that unpredictable, the best place for him is in an institution for his own and everyone elses saftey.

    the man might have down, but next time he might shove someone down some stairs, he is unpredictable enough to do it, so the real person to blame are those that let him in public.


    "he has the right to exist like a normal human being" yes, but there are also over 6bilion others that have the right to not get drating hurt or killed, and this man is clearly unstable and unpredictable enough to cause harm to others.
