    I've learned to never trust what cops paraphrase from proprietary information of official legal statements. He should and will be locked up, but I don't buy that cover story by any means. Cops juice up the story for the reporters, whose only task in life is to make a story as sensational as possible.

    I just wonder what the "unfairness" or the "principle" was? I saw a wuote from him saying that "he had his reasons," but I still have a bit of trouble grasping what those might be.

    Maybe he was so "gangsta" and about the dollah bills that he would kill any person that tried to take his money? It isn't that far-fetched sadly enough....

    Oh. I thought there was some obvious "principle" that I was missing. I could come up with a million theories. But if he owed $4000 worth of back child support, I would imagine that it could be an overwhelming feeling. So, I would probably just rob a bank or engage in some other illegal activity to get the money.

    It's a pretty common crusade among men that have "lost" their children that they feel like they are being taken advantage of... the system is out to get them, their mate is out to get them, the world is unfair, etc. Not too hard to direct that against an single object - say the kid - in a "I'll show you" kind of mentality.

    Keep in mind he can't be entirely stable in the first place. I'm projecting here, but it seems reasonable. (I can totally see him going "I told that bitch she ain't getting nothin").

    Who cares what the guys reasons were...... I vote public castration so he can keep his freedom and never be tied down by child support again.

    He should also be put in a sweat shop and every penny earned should be immediatly confiscated and given to the mother to do as she needs to recover, for the remainder of his pitiful life.

    Sadly nothing can really be done to help the mother.


    This stuff pisses me off.

    I care because it's in my nature to be inquisitive about things no matter how horrible they may be. By yelling "Public castration!" you don't really learn anything about the mentality of the person or the crime that was committed.

    Agreed.

    But Santa believes in the death penalty.

    Life in jail means he gets to live a better life than the one he probably had outside. He will go in, have a roof over his head, 3 squares meals a day, better medical attention than most can afford, and a rigorous but healthy exercise routine. And all that with my tax dollars, NO I SAY CASTRATION IT IS!

    On the up side other inmates would probably beat him to death if they found out what he did, which is inevitable. But if he survives than that great medical attention I was talking about will revive him free of charge and then just put him in solitary confinement so they couldnt try again. Yeah definitely for castration.
