Doesn't seem that bad. The baby wasn't harmed. They just snuck the drugs in through the baby formula. Now had they forced the baby to eat sealed condoms full of cocain, that would be a different story.

Is renting your kids illegal? I'll be right back...

/runs to front of house to take down sign.

As long as it was returned in the overnight slot, I don't see the problem.

Police say the couple got just a few hundred dollars and marijuana in exchange for the use of their daughter.

What a cruddy deal! On the other hand, they did get a break from little Junior for a while.

I wonder if the parents were out doing 'dinner and a movie' while their daughter was going through customs.
2002-09-02 05:48:39 AM  
I'm curious to know why the mother got a lighter sentence than the father. There'd better be a good reason for this.

slayer must have fell asleep

The drug couriers posed as mothers to sneak cocaine hidden in baby formula cans past customs.
Wasn't this the plot of an old school movie?

Well the baby's gonna have a good life now both parents are inside. Seems like an ok deal to me as long as it was looked after. Baby gets to see the world, they get a break. They should gone for a better cut tho. Imagine the kudos at school...

Kid 1: Wanna try some puff? (thinks he's cool dealing puff cos he's 8)

Grown up baby: Fark you I was smuggling coke when I was three weeks old...
2002-09-02 06:05:25 AM  
I thought it said rending baby.

CHICAGO -- A Chicago mother has been sentenced to nearly five years in prison for renting her baby to international drug smugglers.

What an upbringing!
2002-09-02 06:39:44 AM  
didn't they do this in Goodfellas?
2002-09-02 06:46:24 AM  
Once you've rented the kid out, how can you be responsible for what your customers do?

They should have put up a sign in the shop, "Check in time 5:00 pm. We are not responsible for lost or stolen items, or if rental person engages in illegal activities during the course of the rental period. Late check-ins will be charged for the next full day. All sales final."
2002-09-02 06:50:35 AM  
This is outrageous.

If this goes on!
2002-09-02 06:52:06 AM  
Maybe those "No Baby Dumping" stickers are really effective, forcing parent to consider the financial prospects of keeping the child instead.
2002-09-02 06:55:28 AM  
If you shop around, you can pick up ex-rental babies real cheap.
2002-09-02 07:07:59 AM  
Again, why are people supporting international drug smugglers? Stick with American drug smugglers you damn commies.
Hey, if you can rent babes, why not babies?
A caveat to baby renters... you're getting ripped off. It's cheaper to save your money and buy one outright. The whole rental thing is a rip-off. By the time you make all the payments, you could've bought the baby twice over by then.

Oh, and they never include the formula or diapers. Read the fine print! Read the fine print!
2002-09-02 07:18:13 AM  
Did the baby get frequent flyer miles?
2002-09-02 07:23:32 AM

"didn't they do this in Goodfellas?"

I farking knew it!
2002-09-02 07:28:13 AM  
Please return your baby filled with gas.
2002-09-02 07:32:41 AM  
There should be some sort of license to have a kid. THere are too many goddamn freaks out there.
And the reason the mother gets a smaller sentence; because the world is friggin' racist. We men must stand up some day and claim equal rights. Or We could go back to the old ways where the biggest muscles showed the path to greatness! RAHHhl!

Since when does gender equal race? If you had said that the world is sexist, I might agree with you (been on the wrong side of that argument a couple of times).

Nehemiah Scudder,
Where have you been? I haven't seen your posts in a long time.
2002-09-02 07:58:50 AM  
Like the baby was doing anything important anyway.

I think a 5 years sentence is MILD. They should have given mom and dad the farking CHAIR.

The Parents SHould Be Shot... Twice.
2002-09-02 08:39:13 AM  
What were the parents charged with?

OMG the BALL in the changeling going thump thump thump

Do not post while stoned. This has been a public service announcement.

I was away bible thumping in that Godforsaken America.

If this goes on!
2002-09-02 10:04:43 AM  
She obviously became greedy and was charging too much money. That's probably what attracted the attention of the police.
2002-09-02 10:05:55 AM  
In India renting babies is a common practice in large cities,
Beggars hire a baby from a baby dealer and use the sympathy of having a child to feed to get more money.
The parents get some money from the dealer and their baby back at the end of the day.

"If you shop around, you can pick up ex-rental babies real cheap."

I've found the scratch and dent sales to be particularly chock full of good deals.
2002-09-02 10:14:42 AM  
geuss who gets custody of the baby now that mommy and daddy are gone, thats right the drug smugglers...
2002-09-02 11:08:26 AM  
Appie, sorry...
sexist....the world is sexist...
My braincell was switchin wheels on his weelchair, so he couldnt make it intime for me to notice....dang.

To err is human.
(Too really screw up you need a computer.)

This deserves a TV movie: "The Littlest Mule"
2002-09-02 01:00:18 PM  
What were the parents charged with?

I wonder that myself. Renting without a license? Probably just put in jail on general principles and later charged with tax evasion.
2002-09-02 04:18:35 PM  
Excuse me, can I borrow your baby?
2002-09-02 04:51:51 PM  
I'd like to rent these parents for a little trip!
2002-09-03 07:36:05 AM  
I tell you. I'm pissed. This country's war against the conservative continues unabaited. 5 years? 7 years? There is no justice.

I've got two kids myself. I was looking forward to the idea of instilling important values into them when they got older. I remember when I was 15 -- my Dad looked me and told me to get a job -- Pronto! (<-- love that word)

I mean yeah, 3 weeks might seem a little young, but is ever two early to teach your child the value of a dollar and days worth of work?

Plus, there were co-workers involved. This wasn't like a paper route or something where you just plug into the headphones and sling your life away. This kid had to learn how to work together with her peers on the job.

The more I think about it, the more fired up I get!!!
