I totally agree! All the inmates should be required to clean up Cumberland River, Cannon Creek, ditches, mow public lawns, clear debree, clean the courthouse, police stations..... whatever they can find that is manual labor for them to do in order for them to be kept busy instead of them laying in jail all day while the rest of us take care of them! I don't call it cruel and unusual punishment because someone is being paid to do most of this anyway. Besides, Cannon Creek especially needs cleaned up! More than likely it's their trash and beer bottles that are smashed all over the place anyways, and if not I'm sure they've trashed the woods somewhere.

All the signs do is publicly humiliate our town, not the offenders. The offenders think it makes them look cool.

I want the mother of my child to not hold a sign, everyone in this town already knows what she is. I want her to have to hold a job and pay the child support she owes. Holding a sign doesn't embarrass people like her. If your not already embarrassed by losing your kids to drugs and whoring about. Then punching a clock for once in your life might make them grow up!

Agree should we just scold them harshly in private of course and not use any strong words about their lack of responsibility and their crimes and then turn them loose again?

I forgot, it's always societies fault, the individual is never responsible for their actions--never.

This has been the standard line-it's societies fault for 40 yrs. how is it working out for us?

The prisoners should be working in prison garb and those with signs should be met with contempt, scorn and public shaming. But some people have no shame, their were raised with no values or just don't care in which case backbreaking work should be the punishment of choice.

Child support laws are so stupid anyway. I say, if you have a child and don't want to work and support them give them to the parent that does. & They shouldn't be allowed to keep having more. I've watched my husband bust his a$$ to support his children while his ex shacked up with another man and mooched off the government and partied with the child support check for years. Her children are grown now and she and her man are living with their parents. No more support from Daddy nor government. So many things could/should be done to fix the problem, they should have to show where the child support check is spent, and rent shouldn't even be considered, since the parent would have to have a home regardless. It's all stupid, now his youngest son is 18 and Mom can't draw anymore $$ off him she has put him out on his own. All she and the system have taught him is how to lie and live off the government. His other kids are doing the same thing. Yay childsupport!

Oh yeah! They definitely should make people show where the child support money has went because I know moms who go to Bingo, buy drugs, go to bars, buy themselves new clothes and other things, and don't use it for their kids. I also have a friend that pays child support and the mom sends them to his house in raggedy clothes (when she lets him see his kids) and seriously, the kids think they are dressed up for their daddy! Heck, he pays almost $1,000 a month for two kids... there's no reason they should be in raggedy clothes, they should be decked out! Her boyfriend pays for the house and the cars and the bills.... so where's all that money going? She has parties at her house all the time (him and his wife have taken pictures to show the judge to no avail), so I'm sure it's not hard to guess. I also want to interject that she doesn't live in this area, so don't attack our judges for this issue. However, the system does need to reevaluate their procedures and punishments because the signs don't make the criminals feel any shame.

You have got to be kidding, I seen one yesterday holding a sign and he didn't act like it shamed him one bit well now I know why. I think they should take every one of them and make them sell everything they own if anything and give it to the child. These people are not real parents or they wouldn't be holding a sign in the first place. what makes me sick is the ones who will spend that money on other people and don't even think about the child they are not supporting. They may not pay their child support but they will pay to God for how they have done. Does the Bible not say a man who does not take care of his own is worse than an infidel.
