My Domestic Relations Experience

I'm back in PA again, and let me tell ya, it's a crazy place.

I went to Domestic Relations today, and it went a little something like this. I go through security and I see two dudes being led out in hand cuffs. They looked real scared, and the police brought them through so close to me, they could have head butted me if they had wanted.

I get inside and a chick with two kids who looked about sixteen was crying her eyes out because of her loser boyfriend.

There are some other guys in there waiting to be seen. The guys were all in there because Amnesty given to anyone with a bench warrant for back child support. The amnesty dates are March 20-24 2006. After the amnesty dates are passed, the people with the warrants will be found and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Basically, Amnesty means they are safe and they do not have to pay their fines.

The Dads who were waiting got their pictures taken and then, the next thing I knew, hand cuffs were slapped on them. Now I don't know what the circumstances were, they could have had other warrants out for something else, but every single one of them was thrown into prison.

There was one guy left when I was leaving, and the last thing I could hear him saying was, "Is this going to happen to me too? If I go to jail I will lose my job." These guys put the "p" in poor, I'm telling ya, it was scary. I would have been surprised if they could read. Sad.

That in a nutshell was my Domestic Relations Experience.
