"Mr. Crawford has had two open heart surgeries," Scott said. "He's had a stroke and he suffers from kidney failure."
They need parents -- not just one -- two."
And while he may be among the worst deadbeat dads, the sad fact is there are thousands more like him.
(LOUISVILLE) -- The man who once agreed to abstain from sex to stay out of jail is now headed to prison.
Could you picture the uproar if they threatened to throw a woman in jail if she had more children after she was caught as a welfare cheat with 8 kids or if she claimed and demanded from different agencies support from a bunch of men for a single child?
I don't know this man. I haven't even read most of these postings so I know less about him than most of you.I do want to propose an alternative for him and others like him. He may not be a jack ass. He may just be stupid. I mean literally low IQ.I met a man in jail just before Christmas. He was in jail for a drug offense. His mom hired me to try to get him out for Christmas. It was hopeless. He had too many things working against him.Relevant here, he had five children by five different women. I looked in his eyes and it was like looking in the eyes of a confused puppy. This guy just didn't have a clue. He couldn't explain the facts leading to his present situation. He was literally lost in this world. There are people like this.I spoke with his mother. I asked her why he had so many children by so many women. She said he kept losing his family. He wanted a family. Once one failed he would try again. He didn't realize the legal consequences of trying again and again and where it put him.Possibly, his drug problem arose from his family and financial problems. I don't know. I did not see him as a bad individual. I saw him as a very confused less than intelligent person lost in a difficult world.Now, there may be facts I don't know because I have no read all this. I just urge you to go a litle easy on this man. I know this if this was a woman most would go easier on her. I may be defending the devil but I don't want to demonize him based on what I know right now.
