    This makes me just want to put my arms around this poor child. We wonder why children grow up and commit acts of violence. Because their parents, their role models teach them how. Poor Child.

    This makes me sick. This guy should receive a harsh punishment. This 6 yr old will remember this day for the rest of his life.

    These 'adults' just created a lasting birthday memory for some unfortunate child. Children shouldn't have to watch 'adults' behave that way. Sometimes, they blame themselves for the 'bad things' that happen. I would like to hope the kids weren't really present or within 'earshot' of this negative outburst, but if they were, that is child negligence/endangerment too.

    The only thing more stupid than bringing a knife to a gun fight is bringing nothing to a knife fight.
