Richard Heene: My Son's Like a Rocket, Man

10/20/2009 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richard Heene thought about sending one of his kids flying through the air at high, uncontrollable speeds before -- though the first time, he didn't actually stage an elaborate hoax around the idea.

Richard Heene
TMZ has obtained a clip of Heene's Internet show -- which he also sold on DVD -- called "The Psyience Detectives." Heene often put his kids on the show, which featured Richard trying out his various crack pot scientific theories. His wife Mayumi also served as an editor.

In this particular clip, Richard shoots a 60lb rocket into the air and shouts, "60 pounds! That's like launching one of my little children" ... foreshadowing faux-flying-Falcons to come.

Unlike the balloon, Heene had full FAA approval for this launch.

These children are not in danger from storm chasing because I dont believe for one minute they were in the eye of hurricane Gustav. I live in Florida and Im not buying that film clip! No one is on the road driving through these storms. The eye is calm, trucks dont go tipping over at that time. He was probably down the street from his house filming that.

This man is a lunatic and should be evaluated.
He seems to be such a control freak, and he lets his kids do whatever they want. Those children should be taken away so that they can learn proper manners, safety, and respect.
It shouldn't take an accident or death for him to learn to have seat belts on those children.

It's probably not a sign of good parenting when your 6 year old needs to be put on 7 second delay because of his language.

why?    

why is he so damn loud!, I understand he wants his kids to be apart of his thrills but that is going too far. You can look at his face and tell something is not right, there is a screw loose. His wife seems very submissive to him and his crazy adventures. He is like a child playing with his new toys. Where is all the money coming from to pay for all this crap?

What's with the same colored shirts?? Richard, please stop talking and laughing. Your script is lame.

This guy needs to get a real job. 9 to 5 and support his family properly.

SERIOUSLY!!!    

Seriously people! With all his whacko ideas and stunts, why the hell hasn't the State of Colorado's Div. of Family Services taken these children away from them? They are clearly in danger and both the state of Colorado, the parents and the children are headed for serious consequences/tragedy!

AM I ALONE IN THIS? OR IS THE DAD TRULY A DANGER TO HIS CHILDREN?
