From our local DFW channel 8 news: Suspected gunman who shot Dallas firefighter had long rap sheet (emphasis mine):
WFAA talked to family members and learned Brown is the father of 18 children and worked as a janitor at Parkland Memorial Hospital.
Supporters of the family model we are using to replace marriage, the child support model, tend to fall for the it takes two fallacy. This is of course true at the micro level but not at the macro level where policy applies. When we removed the stigma from unwed motherhood and shifted responsibility from single mothers to the men they choose to sire their children, we set up a perverse system. The most responsible men of course are deterred from fatherhood by this new family model. This is increasingly true even for marriage minded men, as there is no legal way for a man to opt out of the child support model. At any time a married father can be removed from the home and forcibly converted to the child support model, solely at the discretion of his wife.
The disincentive for good men to become fathers doesn’t bother the baby mommas at all though, because the men who make them tingle are the sexy bad boys anyway.
Mayor Mike Rawlings described the shooter as “someone that was not mentally stable.”
Court records show Brown had a long criminal history, including an assault charge, several DWIs, and gun offenses…
In 2008, he was involved in a car accident in Dallas, records show. Responding Dallas PD officers approached his vehicle. He yelled, “I’m high… I’m high and I have a gun!”
It only takes a handful of sexy badboys to sire all of the bastards the baby mommas could ever want.
