Even when you're capable of making your own choices, parents can force you to do things. They are your "God" for the first few years of your life. They put a roof over your head. They feed you. Usually from the mind of a child (that is, until you reach that rebellious stage) you as the parent are the best role model there is and what you say goes.

Do you not see how these two sentences contradict each other?

You have to say this much for Desmond Hatchett: He has a way with the ladies.

The 33-year-old Knoxville, Tenn., resident has reportedly set a Knox County record for his ability to reproduce. He has 30 children with 11 women. And nine of those children were born in the last three years, after Hatchett -- who is something of a local celebrity -- vowed "I'm done!" in a 2009 TV interview, saying he wouldn't father more children.

But Hatchett is back in the news this week because he's struggling to make ends meet on his minimum-wage job. His inability to make child-support payments on such a meager salary also means he's back in court again and again, most recently to ask for a break on those payments.

"Yes, we've got several cases with Mr. Hatchett," Melissa Gibson, an assistant supervisor with the Knox County child support clerk's office, said with a sigh.

Hatchett's attorney, Keith Pope, did not return phone calls seeking comment.

Under the law, there's nothing officials can do to force Hatchett to keep his pants on.

"If there's something out there like that, I'm unaware of it," Gibson told The Times, before adding, "It definitely needs to be."

Gibson said Hatchett is believed to hold the Knox County record for most children. (He'd hold a similar record in most counties in the U.S., which might explain why news of his predicament was pinging around the Internet on Friday.)

Gibson said she couldn't say whether any of his children receive public assistance. The youngest is a toddler; the oldest is 14. Asked in a TV interview whether he can "keep up with it all," Hatchett said he knows all their names, ages and birthdates.

Also in a TV interview, Hatchett tried to explain -- in a PG-rated way -- how he managed to end up with so many kids: "I had four kids in the same year. Twice."

When Hatchett is working, he is required to turn over 50% of his wages for child support -- the maximum allowed under law. Child support payments are based in part on the ages and needs of the children.

Some of the mothers of Hatchett's children get only $1.49 a month, reported WREG in Memphis.

How more irresponsible can one get? Hasn't he ever heard of a condom and were any of the women involved with him aware that he had so many kids running around? Jeez!

Let's hope his 30 kids don't emulate him when they grow up.

Agreed. Complete lack of personal responsibility, and the infuriating thing is that the kids are the innocent victims. I don't get the women not insisting on at least a condom either. Talk about living in massive denial. Is it some sort of twisted badge of honor to father 30 kids even though you can't support any of them?

There's some sort of surveillance video, but no one needs to see that.



One man is dead and another hospitalized after a bizarre assault off Miami's MacArthur Causeway reportedly forced a police officer to open fire.

City of Miami police say the incident began Saturday afternoon about 2 p.m. when an officer responded to reports of 2 men fighting in the bike path of the Biscayne Boulevard exit ramp, alongside the Miami Herald's parking garage. There, according to the Herald, the officer observed a naked man eating another man's face:

The officer...approached and saw that the naked man was actually chewing the other man's head, according to witnesses. The officer ordered the naked man to back away, and when he continued the assault, the officer shot him.

The attacker continued to eat the man, despite being shot, forcing the officer to continue firing. Witnesses said they heard at least a half dozen shots.

According to CBS Miami, police sources said the victim had "virtually no face" and was unrecognizable.

"[Officers] attempted to separate them, there was some sort of confrontation," Miami Police spokesman Willie Moreno told Local10.

Photographs taken from the Herald's garage show the naked man lying dead at the scene. Police said his victim was transported to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Officials have yet to identify the officer involved, the deceased, or the victim. The incident snarled traffic on the causeway for hours during busy Memorial Day weekend as multiple lanes of vehicles were routed around the crime scene.

UPDATE, 5/27: While Miami Police remain tight-lipped about the incident, investigators are asking witnesses to contact authorities. The Herald reports detectives believe the victim may have been homeless and the naked man suffering from "cocaine psychosis," which could have prompted him to remove his clothing.

That one doesn't really disgust me. The man obviously had some psychological issues going on. I feel bad for the naked man, but the officer did what he had to do.

Yes obvious issues-cocaine psychosis being one, accdg to the police

But eating the poor and homeless guy's face off disgusts me regardless of the circumstances. All he needed was some fava beans and a nice chianti.

On a bike path no less. The most outrageous thing I've ever seen on my local bike path is some big guy butt crack and some obscene graffiti.

Yes I'd say it becomes necessary to shoot when someone continues to eat another person after the initial shot.

Mob attacks march against sexual harassment in Egypt - World - CBC News

After the marchers entered a crowded corner of the square, a group of men waded into the women, heckling them and groping them. The male supporters tried to fend them off, and it turned into a melee involving a mob of hundreds.

The marchers tried to flee while the attackers chased them and male supporters tried to protect them. But the attackers persisted, cornering several women against a metal sidewalk railing, including an Associated Press reporter, shoving their hands down their clothes and trying to grab their bags. The male supporters fought back, swinging belts and fists and throwing water.

Eventually, the women were able to reach refuge in a nearby building with the mob still outside until they finally got out to safety.
I almost threw up after reading this.

Good lord .

I'm glad the women were able to get to a safe place and eventually escape, and good on the men who joined them and tried to protect them. May they all keep fighting the good fight.

It appalls me that those men were using sexual assault as a way to prevent women from getting involved in the politics of Egypt (they were going to other political protests and groping/attacking women to scare them away). Then this protest is organized as a way to say "You cannot scare us away!" and the men try the same thing and nothing is even done about it. It's absolutely horrific.

Agreed. It's truly depressing to be reminded that such backwards mentalities still exist in this day and age.

This is a big reason why I refuse to get into the "won't bother with voting" mindset. No matter how shitty politics can get, and even if the candidates I have to choose between don't enthuse me in the slightest, I still have the right to have a say, I get to do something some women in other parts of the world are still fighting to be able to do. So I cherish the ability to make my voice heard.

Yes there does, but I'm afraid it's going involve US troops. Not again, not again. When children (and adults) are being horrifically abused like that, and killed, we should definitely be outraged about that. But I'm so sick of us being in wars.

Lord, yes, agree with you wholeheartedly. I certainly didn't want to imply anything of that sort.

But still, I'd like to think there's something that could be done to stop this.
