How Much Is That baby In The Window?

This is especially for my new bestest buddy Hannitized...(story courtesy of Slapstick Politics)

How much is a 5-month-old baby worth?

For three Mexican nationals in Pueblo, Colorado--about $10,000:
Police say a mom sold her 5-month-old baby to get money for a down payment on a car.

Pueblo Police say they responded to St. Mary Corwin Hospital on Monday on a tip that an infant that was sold by his mother.

Police say 23-year-old Nicole

Uribe, a Mexican national, sold her baby boy to a couple on February 21.

Court documents show Uribe sold the baby for $10,000 cash. She then put a down payment on a Dodge Intrepid.

“Mom obviously wanted to get rid of the child for one reason or another and these other people were willing to take the child and then there was an exchange of monetary money." said Sgt. Brett A. Wilson with the Pueblo Police Department.

Police say Uribe sold the baby to 28-year-old Irene and 48-year-old Jose-Juan Lerma, who are also both Mexican nationals.

Uribe and the Lermas were arrested on charges of trafficking a child.

Uribe is also on an immigration hold because she is in the country illegally. She is being held on $50,000 bond in the Pueblo County Jail.
Not sure of the laws in Mexico, but north of the border there are laws against human trafficking.

Of course, when you are in the country illegally, it is expected that the laws of the land don't apply, isn't it?

An Intrepid? Are they putting stupid pills in the water down South? An Intrepid, a Dodge Intrepid? I think I owned one of those in the eighties.
