Mr Officer

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.

Living by the Law
by: Mrs. Non-Custodial

I have been saying that for 4 years. Rally together and challenge the CSE laws. They are absolutely not fair! I have seen them try time and time again to destroy what my husband has worked so hard to build. In the state of Oklahoma you don't even have to be the biological father to be deemed responsible for supporting a child. In fact out of 4 children he pays for, only 2 are actually his. The 2 that are not, neither mother works. They saw him as a meal ticket. It is almost against his best interest to succeed or make any kind of living because, they just raise the support on him. While the women sit on their hind ends and collect. They also don't account for the twin girls we have together. I am doing everything I can to find loop holes to get him out of this mess . He works 70 to 100 hours a week, literally. I work and go to school because at least they can't touch my money. Yet anyway. You can't find a good attorney to argue a man's case. It is sad and I stand up for him. I hope in time, these things will be taken into consideration. We need judges to see past the manipulation and tears and do what is fair. All it takes is one. One case to be seen for it's injustice to get the ball rolling. I keep my fingers crossed.

Mr Officer, Thanks for sharing your story you encountered. THAT IS WRONG, she should be charged surely there is a charge that can be given to her!! This is so wrong I feel so sorry for that gentleman! I would definetly make a stink. I am trying to stir up someone's attention up until now just to get someone to go after my ex!!! I didn't want him in jail because if he is working (which just found out he is) that would only take away our child support. But on the same token I think if he spent one night in jail & got the same treatment that one gentleman gotten maybe he would think about hiding & tell us when he changes jobs!!!
