How about the state helping these guys who can't find a job. The state helps everyone else why not dead-beat fathers or mothers. What is putting him jail going to do? Put the heroin dealers behind bars. Has anyone looked for a job lately, it's nearly impossible to find one. Let's put all the state workers out on the street and see if they have any luck finding work.

Seriously?! Is that comment for real @ mama?! He obviously has enough money for a car, insurance and gas. How about paying your child support so the rest of us don't have to. Yes,I lost my job, like many others, years ago. What did I do? I worked as a fast food manager to support my family until something came along. Sorry, your wambulance isn't stopping here for yet another lowlife with their hand out. Have some respect for yourself and the children you created! $6000?! That's not just one or two missed payments. Come on man!
