Arrest warrant out for Powerball winner

The New Jersey man who won $338 million in the Powerball lottery last weekend is wanted on charges of unpaid child support, according to the Passaic County Sheriff's Office.
An arrest warrant was issued for Pedro Quezada in 2009, the sheriff's office said. He has five children ages 5-23 and owes a total of $29,000 in back child support, spokesman William Maer said. It is not clear which children the payments are for.

    This guy wins $338 million when he has five kids and owes nearly thirty grand for child support. After that, can anyone still say there is a god? Seriously?

      You really think God has anything to do with who wins the lottery?

      What does this man's actions have to do with God? Where is your logic coming from?

      Psalm 37

      King James Version (KJV)

      37 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.

      2 For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.

      3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.

      4 Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

      5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

      6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday.

      7 Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

      8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

      9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

      10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

      11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

  3. Child Support GOVT Ponzi

    Okay, lets pretend for a moment that payments dont get sent to local government first and that they get correctly applied to an outstanding balance. The more a Dad owes the better off some suit lives. Give the man a break Bratty.

      Gambling with a hope of winning... lol. $30k will be nothing to him. Even when you add on what it'll take for him to bond out, he'll still be sitting pretty high.
