How Wrong is This? Free Baby offered on Internet on Craigs List
San Diego police are investigating a potential child endangerment case as the on-line classified web service CraigsList had a posting for a free baby. The ad has since been taken down. What are people thinking?
“The copy of the ad sent to us shows a picture of a baby,” San Diego police Sgt. Jim Schorr said. “We immediately contacted our child-abuse detectives in an attempt to find out if this was some kind of hoax. We are taking this very seriously.”
The copy given to police says: “Free baby boy to good home. My ex-girlfriend had him a few weeks ago, but now he just sits in my closet and cries. I’m not too sure how to deal with it, and I’m in a pretty low financial spot. I lost all the baby accessories. Batteries not included. Transaction final. No returns. Guaranteed not DOA.” (San Diego Union Tribune)

SICK! VERY,VERY, SICK! They both should be hung right next to O.J.
If this is someone’s idea of a sick joke, IT should be left for the “mothers of America” to deal with. I would LOVE to serve on a jury to decide the fate of such a wacko!
i hope sm follows up on this. the idea of a newborn baby being in the care of someone with this kind of attitude is totally unacceptable.
What’s sicker is reading today’s news about a mother frying her child in a microwave for a few seconds.
