Yesterday on “The D.L. Hughley Show”, Hughley responded to the moving story Bethany Arceneaux of Louisiana who was a kidnapping victim and was found by family.

Arceneaux was dropping her child off a daycare and was allegedly kidnapped by her child’s father, Scott Thomas. Arcenaux had allegedly filed multiple restraining orders against Thomas. Her family found out about it and they went looking for her.  Their search resulted in the family finding the suspect, with the woman, and they shot him. Bethany Arceneaux and her child are now safe.

D.L. Hughley stated early on in the show; “I always said that when I got any kind of platform I wouldn’t just tell dumb jokes.  I wouldn’t just try to be funny.  These are our children that are dying.  And what we’re doing right now isn’t working.” He continued “If we only accept that, if that is the way that it’s going to be and we do nothing to change it, I say it’s cowardly.”

D.L. posed the question to his listening audience: “Do you think that these incidences of abuse, do you think things would happen, so many things would befall our women if they, if people knew the men that mess with them, that there was hell to pay, that they have family looking out for them?” He took calls on the matter for the rest of the show.  The cousin and neighbor of Scott Thomas called into the show and gave their exclusive commentary.
