The Wilmington News Journal usually post bankruptcies and I see where Kedesha R. Briddell, Bi State Boulevard, Delmar, filed a Chapter 7 petition with U.S. Bankruptcy Court to provide for a court-appointed trustee to liquidate all assets except those protected by law. She claims assets of $833, and liabilities $18,299.
Now the few times I have posted bankruptcy data I have received a lot of opinions that I should not do so. However I view claiming bankruptcy the same as stealing. People trusted you and gave you an opportunity to show you were financially responsible - they did you a favor - you screwed them. The government has allowed people once again not to have to accept financial responsibility for their actions and in turn place this burden on everyone by higher interest rates, higher prices and by small businesses going out of business. Frankly people who claim bankruptcy should do time.
