Well I am a police officer from the Chicagoland area, and I have to remain anonymous, but I hope this reaches your post.
I encountered a subject on the street that I had often dealt with. Through a name check he was discovered to have a warrant for child support. It was a lot about $6000.00 cash. He told me that he was going through a court case for the same warrant as we speak, and provided paper work to substantiate what he spoke of. After verifying everything, I was still advised by the courts (prosecuters) to arrest him, in which I had no choice. If you don't believe that police officers are human, than you are wrong. We have a job to do, but we still have emotions that we are supposed to be suppressed as if they don't exist (yeah right). And for this guy, who had a good job, I was pretty concerned because this was the first of a situation in my 15 years I encountered.
The next time I saw this guy was about 9 months later at a store in town. He looked a meess, but he remembered me, pulled me to the side and shared something that just disgusted me. He told me that he went to jail for 6 month. This was a guy who probably never had a fight in his life. He also said that he was raped in jail, lost his job, had hardly any money, license was suspended, and the whole 9 yards. Then after he gets out of jail, he still had to go to court. Once in procedure of this situation (about the second court appearance), the female admitted to the court that the child was not his, and that she knew it, but she just wanted to get back at him because he moved on. After a DNA test was ordered, he was proven not to be the father. The courts took no action against her. I understand mistakes happen, and I also understand why child support is in place,
but that was totally intentional (which is the basis of any crime) and she admitted it. Now here is a guy who had his whole life turned around for nothing. And being a cop for a long time, I asked myself, where is someone like that to turn. So now just to live (not live lavishly but simply live) you have to start over, get into the right environment to avoid temptation to do anything wrong, and deal with the fact that your manhood was taken.
I felt compelled to tell this mans story, because that sh&% was not right, and they allowed it to happen with no consequence. So what do other people in this situation have to look foward to. It appears hopeless.
So if I can tell you anything, sue the hell out of as many people involved in your case as you can. If enough fathers rally together state to state, city to city, town to town, I hope you will eventually make some noise. If there are any attorneys watching, you no this isnt a cheap case, but if you can discount a group rate of fathers that actually need this help, and push them into the right courtroom or political ear, help them. Go on youtube, tell how the courts did you try to let everone know until it reaches a higher court that will finally take a look at this. Its sad for those that the child support law doesnt apply to, and you true dead beat fathers (not the fathers where they found out they had a kid or some other unforseen event) you are the reason for this problem. Yes we are all men who love to do what God put us here to do, but you gotta know what are doing and respect the possible results before you stick it in (cover it up). If you can remember this story before you do it, don't trust the female or leave the ball in her COURT. I would say unless you are sure, but you never can be.
