You can't get blood out of a stone....only bodies.
Crackdown on deadbeats promised
Saturday, February 12, 2000, Patricia Orwen and Dale Brazao, Toronto Star
Flaherty makes funny noises -- and doesn't deal with what he knows is the truth -- the Star's madeup stats are wrong and/or misleading.
Unit sought to track deadbeats
Sunday, February 6, 2000, Patricia Orwen and Dale Brazao, Toronto Star
Renate Diorio heads a group of 2 (her and her dad) called Families Against Deadbeats. 500 -- pish. They have not bought into criminal harassment and can be seen at http://www.wantedposters.com. Of course, the Star can't figure out why prventing someone from making any money doesn't help. These are the jailers -- again upset that a man on welfare lives with his parents.
Another deadbeat slips the net
Saturday, February 5, 2000, Patricia Orwen and Dale Brazao, Toronto Star
So here we have a woman who has spent $250,000 pursuing a man for $120,000, harassing and ruining him in the process. She lived with him for 30 years and apparently, other than spending money, never got to know him -- and would rather use a quarter million dollars to harass the ex than to feed her children. She brainwashes and alienating the poor kids too giving them no more status than that of a weapon. Hard to guess with the b-word or the w-word applies here -- heck, use them both. As for the slant of the Start -- criminal is closer to the reality. Note that the judge imputed an income -- meaning that the man never made this much money, and likely never close to it, but some judge decided to ruin him by setting the support at impossible levels. [PS. Again the false and misleading statistics. This paper obviously believes in making up the numbers, and are obviously deciding to act as incompetent as the FRO is.]
How a father lived in the shadows to avoid payments
Saturday, January 29, 2000, Patricia Orwen and Dale Brazao, Toronto Star
Start of the Toronto Star bigotted series on deadbeats -- only dads. This one, a not totally competant man who may make up to $20,000 a year with a net worth of $750 is told to pay up $100,000, based on in support of $9,000 a year -- and did some jail. Of course, the Star will make sure he will never work again. Their big deal is that his parents are able to retire -- but not allowed to see the kids either. Remember support and access are separate, but these kids are being used as weapons, being alienated, and the Star figures that that abuse is just OK. Does the Star think grandparents must pay? (see some more later) [PS. child support arrears stats have no basis in reality and are wrong.]
