What in the name of all that’s holy is wrong with people? Men AND women?
Orlando Shaw, 33 years old of Tennessee, has 22 children to approximately 14 women. The man has no job, is an ex-con, and is tens of thousands of dollars in arrears in child support.
He says he loves his children though. He proves it by showing up each and every time he’s summoned to the court house. However, the only parenting he does is via his cell phone, oh, and on the weekends, when he rotates his
Where the hell does he get the money for his cell phone and the lottery tickets? He doesn’t have a job. The Tennessee tax payers are footing the bill for his 22 children to the tune of seven thousand dollars a month. Are they supporting him too?
The story gets better.
Orlando has the audacity to say he didn’t use birth control because he was young, ambitious and loved women. I call bull shit. A man who loves women doesn’t knock them up, leave them with passels of kids, then not support them.
This man loves sex. Period. He has no respect for women. He has no respect for his children or his fellow man either, because he doesn’t give a flying crap that the taxpayers are footing the bill for his illegitimate offspring. The man’s a pig.
It’s not just Orlando who’s at fault here either. The baby mamas are just as guilty. FOURTEEN women knowingly had sex with this man without birth control and brought TWENTY-TWO innocent children into the world. That means more than one of these women had more than one child a piece with him. What the hell is wrong with them? Were they in some kind of contest? There is no way fourteen women were ignorant to this man’s past. Yet they knowingly had unprotected sex any way.
But in the long run, it’s the innocent children who will suffer.
This type of behavior isn’t indicative to Tennessee either. It’s a national epidemic. If I didn’t believe in the constitution, I’d demand sterilization. However, I do believe in individual rights and forcing sterilization on someone would go against everything we, as a nation, stand for.
I don’t know what the answer is to cases like this. I only know that Orlando is a disgrace. These baby mamas are a disgrace. And my heart breaks for the children. They are growing up in broken homes. Their father is an ex-con with no job who thinks playing the lottery is a good plan. They deserve so much better. All children deserve a fair chance but when they are dealt shitty mommy-daddy cards, they don’t get a re-deal. They have to play the hand they’re dealt.
I hope against hope kids like Orlando’s will somehow break the cycle, because I know according to statistics most end up just like him. That fills my heart with sadness. If I could take all the children with crappy moms and dads, I would. But since I can’t, I can only hope they will one day find peace and security within.
