how the former lawyers and judges who comprise Wisconsin’s Supreme Court will explain to the citizens their reasons for incarcerating Mr. Oakley for 8 long years? That cost, I mean, to incarcerate Mr. Oakley would far and away exceed $25,000–TAXPAYER DOLLARS!!!–and so I wonder how they will explain their purpose? How will the taxpayer benefit by locking away Mr. Oakley?
These princes of Wisconsin’s Supreme Court must be masters of Machiavellian principles, and politics, and so I imagine they are saying to themselves, something like: “Hain’t we got all the fools in town on our side? And ain’t that a big enough majority in any town?” (Twain) Perhaps the Wisconsin high court justices are even more sinister and cunning, and, like Hitler, they are saying: “How fortunate for government that the people do not Think.” Human rights, indeed. Since when do Princes (and interested majorities!) think of human rights?
I can see both sides of this issue….The man in question really can’t afford to have more children….But with the court’s ruling…this could put responsible fathers who do pay child support and who could ( by some means) afford to have another child with another spouse. In other words this gives the court the latitude to become involved in something they have no usiness in.
Something courts,lawyers,and society seem prone to do and allow to happen. Also is the issue of the man involved. What happens if it is an accidental pregnancy. It would seem as if the court has almost ordered his involuntary sterilization or castration. This is a practice the nazi’s used on the jews and was considered to be a horrible war crime by society. But yet it is effectively what has transpired here. Just doesn’t make much sense to me on any account here…Stupidity abounds on all sides of this issue.
