Tragic Solution to Child Support Obligation

A man in New Orleans was distraught with a court's order that he pay child support. So he kidnapped and then killed his son.

I've been warning folks that this sort of thing is an inevitability given our broken child support system. The vast majority of folks would never sink to this heinous of an act, but sane, stable individuals aren't the only ones ordered to pay child support.

In the current state of the national economy, I don't think that this story is the last of its kind for 2009. I wish that wasn't the case, but we have to come up with a better way of making both parents realize that they have a responsibility - both financial and otherwise - when they bring a child into the world short of threatening them with incarceration.
