    Wow, un-friken-believeable, smdh :banghead:

    And you thought Octomom had her hands full—a Tennessee man who has fathered 30 children is asking the courts for a break on child support.
    Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women, reports WREG-TV.

    The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn't amount to much when Hatchett is making only minimum wage. Some of the moms receive as little as $1.49 a month. The oldest child is 14 years old. Hatchett explains how he reached such a critical mass: He had four kids in the same year. Twice.

    Back in 2009 when Hatchett was in court to answer charges that many of the mothers were not receiving child support, he had 21 children. At the time, he said he was not going to father any more kids, but he ended up having nine more in the past three years.

    Feh, the problem is two-fold in my mind. Penalties are stiff and not enough intervention is given to actually get the father to pay. Instead, jail is the solution. While I don't sympathize with the fathers/mothers not paying...jail isn't a solution. You can't pay in jail.

    On the other hand, fathering 30 children should be something someone planned for financially. That's a lot of kids.

    Making minimum wage can barely afford one kid, much less that many. Very irresponsible IMO. The kids are the ones suffering here, hopefully their mom's can support them enough to get buy w/o a life tinkering into drugs and crime in the future.

    Most of the women that constitute the eleven different mothers in this case must not be the sharpest tools in the drawer either.

    Vasectomies should be free for anyone who can't afford one, or in his case, required. That is beyond irresponsible.

    hate to say it, but it's obviously true. especially considering there are only 11 mothers for the 30 kids.

    'Personal responsibility' passed about 20 kids ago.

    When animals can't control themselves, we get them 'fixed'.

    You should plan financially for the first kid, and then work up from there.

    That's why I have only one kid.

    I agree the women are at fault too. OK -- he can't afford your other kids, but sure, go ahead and sleep with him again and bring another child he can't afford into the world! And 11 women did this!!!

    Maybe do a little investigating on who you are sleeping with. Might be wise to ask how many kids you each have, what kind of job? Not uncommon questions that come up on dates when getting to know someone. And I'm pretty sure it's not like they didn't know he had multiple kids. Why would you as the woman bring any more into the world? That $1.49 a month must be awesome for you!!

    He should be required to get a vasectomy. I have a friend who has a baby daddy like this. I think he had up around 20 kids, he doesn't SEE the kid and doesn't pay for him either. It's not right. He is raised in a very loving home. They might not always get what they want, but she does the best she can with 5 kids.

    A break from child support. Please. Man, not only does he need to get vasectomy, he needs to work on getting a few more jobs. Maybe if he was working, he wouldn't have time to sleep with anyone.

    30 babies, in 14 years... amazing...

    He should go to jail for making the rest of us foot the bill for his promiscuity... and all 11 mothers should be institutionalized for bein' out of their freakin' minds...

    I note also that he went to court 3 years ago, when he "only" had 21 kids... so he knew he had a serious problem them, and his reaction was to go out and father 9 more kids in 3 years...

    One wonders how many more children that he'll never support, either financially or emotionally, this jagoff will father...

    While I'm loathe to call any man an animal, especially a minority (because of the racist connotations), I can't really quarrel with the use of the word here...

    This is a rutting beast, not a man...

    It's not about skin color, it's about ignorant, animalistic behavior.

    There may more that he doesn't even know about.

    Stupid, .. ignorant, .. moronic, ... you pick the adjective, that is him.

    He should be required to have a vasectomy to stop this madness, .. and required to work two full time jobs to support them until the youngest is 18.

    He is responsible for each and every one.
