Categories: Crime

The Texas Attorney General's Office sends word this morning that 22 Dallas parents who've been court-ordered to pony up child support were arrested by Dallas County constables -- and it was the very definition of a "rude awakening," as the round-up kicked off at 5:30 in the a.m. Says Attorney General Greg Abbott, "Parents have a moral and legal obligation to support their children. By collecting child support, we are ensuring young Texans have the resources they need to grow healthy and strong. We are grateful to the constables in Dallas County for their commitment to Texas children."

Yeah right.  This is all a part of a political agenda.  My son's dead beat dad has been 20k in arrears since 2008.  Never received medical support.  Texas has the "Best Interest of the Dead Beat Parent". Never had a slap on the wrist!!!  Legistlation needs to change these laws.  Texas judicial system so so corrupt.  I'm exhausted and still fighting !!!  Start taking these loosers rights away.  It's crap that as the non-custodial parent they can come and go as the please and have the custodial parent arrested on vistitation issues.  They pay partial payments to keep out of jail and who are these losers that are Father's rights activists supporting loser girl or boy through our court system. Loser boy, the non-custodial, alledge false abuse charges to in hopes to acheive sole custody so they don't have to pay.  Courts allow this behavior.  And some how the burden of proof is on me at hearings.  Courts bread and support this bad behavior.  Here is the deal, everyone makes money off our broken system meaning, our judges, attorneys and court system.  I'm an american citizen and a Texas citizen and I cannot depend on our judicial system for justice.  All about the crooks up top.  But I'm in for long haul........

Kay and Don:

I have a case for you that will astound you, similar to the one Kay described, but with more than 6 years of evidence and expert advice thrown away by this judge, ruining a perfectly wonderful child and father. The child is sent to handicapped school by a certifiably psychotic and paranoid mother for litigation and revenge purposes, after mother was shockingly given custody. CPS will likely resolve this case in an hour, but Judge Cherry has maintained illegal control over the case. But you are wrong to think she is only guided by her deep bias against men, and inability to know what it is to have a child, or hurt a child. She serves the attorneys that form a gang, or she hopes will form a gang, to re-elect her. Election in Dallas county is NOT a recourse! How did she get in the first place? Are there no standards in this county? Very active mothers and a few thousands of dollars make a difference in electing judges here. Lives are ruined. Even attorneys publicly helping her be re-elected say openly Cherry is the worst judge in Dallas history. My guess is that, that is an exageration, but close enough, from what I have seen an d know.

Don, you have a problem with Judge Cherry? How about this! Several years ago a custodial father brought his ex to court requesting that she be made to pay up back medical and that his two teenagers, which he's had since they were babies, not be forced to comply with visitation. This family had been in court before so the actions and attitude of the mom was already a matter of public record. After months of interviews and counseling, Judge Cherry's case workers recommended that the mom be restricted to supervised visitations. Not only did Judge Cherry ignor this advise, she gave the mom temporary custody and threw out the father's claim for the court ordered support that his ex was already in comtempt of paying. The teenagers, now 18 and 19, have both dropped out of school and the oldest is now on his way to prison!What was Judge Cherry thinking!

The reason it costs 5 times as much for a DEATH ROW inmate is because of the endless appeals that are allowed. As I stated, the DEATH PENALITY should only be used when their is absolute no doubt of guilt. Unrefuteable proof. Then it should be Swift & Quick. The courts should be setup so that Death Penalities are Appealed & Decided within 90 days. Courts should literally drop everything & process them. No sitting around for months & years waiting to decide what to do.

Executions are a detterent when they are Swift, Quick & Decisive. Now they are a JOKE. The criminals know it is just the same as a Life sentence or better. Sometimes they can get an appeal won easier on a Death Penality than a Life Sentence.

We need Prison Reform and that includes releasing those who arent a threat & locking up longer those that are. And maybe Euthanizing those that need it.

All the while, we have sitting district judges, females, administering divorce decrees in our family ocurt system unwilling to require child supoort of a non custodial parent, the female mom, simply because the mom is on disability pay. The name, Judge Lynn Cherry, Dallas County District Judge 301st court. How is that in the best interest of the child? Not to mentiong the discremantory practice of the TExas Family Code when it is the male that she owes support that Judeg Lynn Cherry is willing ot sned to jail for not paying support in the best interest of the child. SOunds like something is DRASTICALLY WRONG here and has to change. My position, is that each parent, is qually financially responsible to provide for the child, although our family court judeges do not failry apply the same standard of the laws when it comes to the best interest of the child to both parents. Dicriminatory practices must stop and doubel standards have no place in our system of justice for all in the family courts. How dare you Judeg Lynn Cherry! You are accountabel to the voters and this proactices will reconcile at the end of the day in the public court of opinion!

Uncle Scrappy, I love all of what you said but the death penalty thing. I don't really have sympathy for the guilty, but it costs us 5 times more to kill someone than it does to lock them up for life.

Considering we've caught a few who were exonerated at the last moment we can't really curtail that appeals process. Again, we're talking about policy here. I don't have a problem with torturing the guilty if you wish. Only, I want to be as sure that poor dude is guilty as if he were about to fry.

Also I have NO PROBLEM with capital punishment once we quit reading about so many ILLEGAL CONVICTIONS & people being exonarated. But if you can show a clean cut case of Whodunit, then I have no problem pushing the Button, or throwing the switch or anything else.

Dont want to DIE or do the time, DONT DO THE CRIME !!!

So CP, I guess we can count on you to not complain when they have to RAISE your taxes & such to help pay for the NEW PRISONS, PRISON GUARDS & everything else that will be required to Incarcerate (Not I said INCARCERATE, not REHABILITATE) them. What we need is more Outpatient type treatments or punishement. Day type punishment centers could be created where you could sit & stare at the walls all day (Like a Job) and recieve 1 credit day for this. Or there could be Community Service type work where you could get 5 credit day for this. And if you have to go thru some type of Therapy or such, you would get like 3 credit day. This is a STICK & CARROT approach and also eliminating some of the costly overhead we have maintain MEDICAL, SLEEPING QUARTERS & everything else.

Also if they dont show or comply with this method. Then they could be TOTALLY INCARCERATED. But remember when you lock someone up, they end up learning more criminal behaviors inside.

No Uncle Scrappy, in other, more populous parts of the world (like y'know, third world countries and all) they just kill people. It's a nice little prison stat for folks to trot out, but put it in perspective. At least we have prisons.

Commitment to Texas Children only when it comes to financial considerations (which is, admittedly, important). Just try and get a visitation order enforced. There are certainly no constables or officers from the AG's office out enforcing that half of the divorce decrees.

OK now they are sitting in jail, unable to work so as to earn money. Maybe the $100.00 a day CREDIT they get for sitting in jail or whatever can go toward paying their child support. Also I guess we can then start paying them Welfare & Food Stamps after we release them because they will probably have lost their job while sitting in jail. So more TAX DOLLARS being spend to help them.

Dont sound too smart to me. As has been pointed out, we have 5% of the world population, but over 25% of the Prison population of the world. WE ARENT DOING SOMETHING RIGHT HERE !!! Locking people up isnt the answer. Incarciration should be for violent crimes & flight of justice risks. Locking up Traffic Ticket offenses & people who dont pay fines is STUPID. But then again so it seems is our Justice system. (Hard to use the word JUSTICE talking about what is going on)
