liam76: willfullyobscure: 'I wonder if he's white?'*clicks link**adopts smug-but-tainted-with-sadness expression*Of course, you can't sell a black kid for that much...Silverstaff: TheSopwithTurtle: 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.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.http://www.timesnews.net/article/9059328/police-kingsport-man-tries- to -sell-daughter-6-for-bail-money Has more details.Even if he was selling the girl to a stranger shw woudl probably be better off. Hopefully the relative can get full custody now.
Silverstaff: 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.
