That's part of the solution.  As in, he shouldn't have a kid.

To be fair, he tried to "sell" custody of the child to the child's great-grandmother (who was already taking care of the kids). Still farked up, but it's not like he was selling the kid into slavery or something.

Agreed.  Now if someone were to do the needful thing while he's in custody, he wouldn't have anymore.

It's what Leviticus recommends.  He was just following the teachings of the Bible.

I don't see the problem.  This makes perfect logical sense.  You sell the kid, get money to get the gf out, and have a replacement kid.

Yeah, this.

While farked up, and illegal ("illegal payments in connection with placement of a child" apparently under TN law), it is misleading to imply the kid was being "sold".  From the kids perspective, she'd keep living with her grandmother like she had been for the past week.

Basically he was telling the relative that had already taking care of the kids that he'd sign over full custody for $1500.

Of course, you can't sell a black kid for that much...

Even if he was selling the girl to a stranger shw woudl probably be better off.  Hopefully the relative can get full custody now.

A couple of positive things here.  First, he obviously wanted to get the girlfriend out of jail so that he would have someone to comfort him during the cold Tennessee nights.  Fortunately, he didn't make his daughter the substitute.  Second, anyone attempting to sell a child is putting up a big, flashing, neon sign that he is an unmitigated disaster of parenting.  This should be viewed by authorities as a perfect opportunity to rescue said daughter from what would only be a horrific life.

Guys like this should be thanked for their consideration of the child's welfare and then locked up.  If he's good, he could be locked up with his girlfriend.  That way, authorities could reward him for his kindness toward the child while monitoring the birth control practices of the loving couple to make damned sure they don't reproduce again.  And if the girlfriend is as good looking as the guy, neither of them has a chance at happiness with anyone else in the outside world so all's good.  I know you're probably wondering, "Why should  taxpayers foot the bill for their care and keeping?"  Face it folks, we're going to end up with that bill anyway.

There's no way a black kid would be worth that kind of money.

Now, with regards to "buying" or "selling" a kid, I've got a story, dunno if it counts as a CSB.

When my wife was very young, about 4 or 5, her mother was about to move from Kentucky to California with her new boyfriend.

The entire extended family objected to this, saying they thought it would be bad for the little girl, and nobody trusted the boyfriend.  Everybody thought he was a total creep, lots of people suspected he was a pedo.

The extended family: aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents. . .took up a collection of around three thousand dollars (circa 1990).  They offered her mother this money in cash if she'd sign over full legal and physical custody of her daughter, waiving all visitation rights, to the grandparents (they even had the papers drawn up, she just had to have them signed and notarized).  She could move out of state with her boyfriend and have a big lump sum of cash to go with it.

Her mother wouldn't hear of it, they moved to California.  Lo and behold, yup, he was a pedo.  He was busted for sexual abuse charges after less than a year there, and that little girl would end up in foster care for almost 5 years while they sorted the mess out legally.

Her extended family begged and pleaded and kept trying to get custody, but of course California would never let a child out of "the system" if it didn't have to, especially to go out-of-state.  Eventually her mother got custody back and they moved back to Kentucky.  The entire experience (she says the ordeal of foster care was as bad for her, or worse, emotionally as the molestation) left her with a lot of problems.

However, it would have all been avoided if the attempt by the grandparents to "buy" her had been successful.  So yeah, it's not always a bad thing when a deal like this with money is being thrown around in a family.  What it means is there is a serious problem there because somebody is either willing to part with the child for money, or somebody is that serious about getting custody away from somebody the are willing to throw down money.

Back in the day, if you found a baby in a basket on your door step, or in a spaceship in a cornfield, you could just keep it and raise or sell it as your own.  Now you have to go through all this beauracratic red tape.

This is why big government is bad.

One count of selling a child as livestock, one count of misrepresenting the weight of livestock...

I just wanted to say that's one of the saddest and most horrifying family experiences I've heard. How tragic. Thank god she managed to pull things together (mostly, at least) and live a normal life. Kudos to her.

Pater familias would have solved that problem.

Well, the girlfriend can work for money to buy the kid back, but the kid's not going to earn anything for bail.
 
2013-03-30 10:58:34 AM  

"Price. A fair price. That's not what you say it is, and it's not what I say it is... It's what the market will bear. Now there's people - and I know 'em - who'll pay a lot more than $25,000 for a healthy baby. Why, I myself fetched $30,000 on the black market. And that was in 1954 dollars."

if you factor in that the girlfriend might also be the mother of the kid then perhaps springing her from jail to discover that he'd sold their kid might end poorly for him.

The presence of money does not necessarily imply that someone has a sense of ownership.  Nuance, people, nuance.
