Jim Crow Days For Men

Jim Crow Days For Men
by Carey Roberts


Abuse of these orders is not an isolated problem. In Massachusetts, about 30,000 domestic orders are issued every year. One analysis by the Massachusetts Trial Court found that fewer than half of these restraining orders involved even an allegation of physical abuse.

Another troubling piece of this law -- clearly unconstitutional -- is its “mandatory-arrest” provisions. Let’s say you get into a marital tiff, your wife or girlfriend calls 911, and the cops come running. But in the meantime, things cool down and she asks police to leave. Fine, but don’t forget your toothbrush, because you will be going out in handcuffs.

It’s no surprise that this $1 billion-a-year anti-father juggernaut eventually takes its toll on families. Highlighting the fact that almost 40% of our nation’s children now live in a home without their own father, Schlafly urges Congress to “conduct an investigation to find out how much of this fatherlessness is the result of bad government in the hands of a small radical group that is biased against marriage and fathers.”

I have a question and i dont know where to go with it. it pertains to a woman having my child who i dont know, dont want to know, dont want another baby, cant afford. if it was mine I would give it up for adoption or abort it. She has the right to do either of those things, why dont I. I cant afford the child and I certainly do not want it. Why would the system force it upon me. It was a mistake and Im not willing to pay for it. Dont I get to make joint decisions for the well being of the child, if so then lets put it in a good home. HELP ME UNDERSTAND?

The system has come to this, is this the way people are thinking in order to get out of the ridulously high child support orders?

I encourage all men to do this...either be in the childs life positively or send the child support check and never look back.. DO NOT DO BOTH. Make sure the courts know what you are doing and why. This sacrifice for others in the future to come in hopes that the system gets reformed to a fairness that we can live with.
