The Man Who Fathered 30 Kids ~
*Let me get this out there before anyone gets the wrong idea. I fully support people’s right to have as many or as few children as they wish. Unless they are idiots (see below)…
Did you read the story on Yahoo! about the man (Desmond Hatchett) who fathered 30, yes 30, kids between 11 different women? Now he is asking for leniency from the court in his child support obligations because he only earns minimum wage. Immediately I think to myself that he should get about 17 more jobs to go with that one. I mean, if he has every right to father as many children as he wants, then shouldn’t the taxpayer have every right to make the father help pay for them himself?
The article says that the man who fathered 30 kids isn’t breaking any laws. To me, he is. He is a thief. He promised the court that he wouldn’t make anymore children in 2009, yet he has since made 9 more. When did perjury stop becoming a crime? He is taking food out of our childrens’ mouths to put in his own – as I am sure there is quite a bit of government aid going around in this very preventable situation. And not only is he stealing from us, what about the poor (although probably quite naive in many cases) mothers who are left caring for these children alone? What chance do these children have in life with a father like that as a role model? This is a sad situation and that man should be ashamed of himself. He helped make all these children and doesn’t want to help take care of them, plain and simple.
I think jail is the best place for the man who fathered 30 kids. I have no idea why he isn’t there as non-payment of child support is an offense punishable with jail. I mean, according to the article, some of the women receive a little over a buck a month in child support. One freaking dollar!! Which is the greater evil – the women losing that monthly dollar and the state incurring the cost of jailing this man or letting him continue to run rampant and impregnate 30 more women? I think in the long run it might be cheaper just to jail the guy and get it over with. Or let him chose between that and chemical castration…
I think the absolute best idea was in the comment section on Yahoo!
Amen, AlSamood, Amen! I hope you run for office one day!
I just had to warn my fellow ladies. You’re welcome.
