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.

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


Sounds to me like grandma found a way to save $1500 by calling the cops.

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

Obvious scam, those six year olds just walk back home, you think you've bought one and own it now but they're like homing pigeons.

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

He should've tried the Newtown market, as there are about 20 possible buyers.

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.

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

There was a similar case in New York in the late 1970s:
