I dunno if anyone started a thread about this yet, but I need to vent right now for the sake of one of my friends. I think its outright stupid to put a person who has a job and is making strides to pay child support in jail.. I mean who does it benefit exactly? No one! Its not paying the 'debt' that is due and when they are done serving their sentence they have difficulty finding a job. We as taxpayers have to cough up money to have space for people like this person I know who do not even deserve to be in jail. And it definitely does not benefit the child's mother who open her dang mouth in the first place when he came back in town just to spend some time with his own woman and child they have together....wtf came up with that fragerknacle bull that they call law? Sorry, I had to vent. One of my friends fiancee went to jail and has to be there for like 4 months and to make matters worse, he most likely will have to go to jail all over again because he has another warrant for not appearing in court ... why didn't he appear in court? Because HE IS IN JAIL! And why he did not appear in court prior to the jail sentence he is serving now? BECAUSE HE WAS AWAY ON A JOB! I mean really? And worst of all, my friend's son is starting not to even recognize his dad anymore. He's not even say "dada" like he used to. I'm sorry to go off like this, but this system is really screwed up.
