RALEIGH — A group of angry fathers is talking toGovernor Jim Hunt and getting some response. The group, known as FathersAgainst the Crackdown, expressed anger that its member were being forcedto pay child support, but that there was no legal recourse for fathers whoaren't allowed to visit their children.
