what? more details or not, the fact that the cops nabbed men and women criminally behind on their child support is a wonderful thing. there is NO excuse for that negligence. these dirtbags fully deserve to have their faces thrown all over the internet, tv news, and newspaper. if they're going to make their own children go without, then they should go without as well, be it going without privacy or public respect.

I am a mother who is owed child support and I just think that the idea of arresting these dead beats is the WRONG ANSWER! You arrest them but they owe money..... Um hello how are going to get the money when you keep arresting them then they possibly lose their jobs so then we are at another stand still. Still NO MONEY!!!! And why, because they keep being arrested!!! So another solution NEEDS to be found for us to get child support rather then locking them up!!!!!!!

At least they do something about dead beats in El Paso. In Las Cruces nothing is done. Someone needs to do something about it. Hold someone accountable!

Media should be aware that there are more details to some of these cases rather than just publicizing the arrest with a picture and a name. This does nothing for the individual case. You are just sensationalizing and politicizing a complicated matter without thinking about families and especially kids involved.
