Taco Bell Crime of the Week: Attempted Baby Selling!

Categories: Our Taco Hells

Remember that Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors episode when our favorite family lived in ye olden days, and they lived in a land of fairy tales (remember Bart, after hearing Lisa said that a witch was fattening them up to eat, basted himself?)? Remember how Marge wanted to sell off Maggie? Sorry, folks, but this is just a bit of levity to tell the sad tale of a mother who's accused of wanting to sell her three-day-old baby for $500. From the Seattle area:

A Vancouver, Wash., woman accused of offering to sell her 3-day-old son for $500 in a Taco Bell restaurant in southwest Washington has been arrested on previously issued warrants.

The Columbian reports that Clark County sheriff's deputies are asking prosecutors to consider charging 36-year-old Heidi Lynn Knowles with attempted child selling, a Class C felony.

In a sheriff's bulletin, Sgt. Phil Sample says officers responded Thursday night to a 911 call from a woman who said another woman approached her in the restaurant, handed her the baby and offered to sell him.

You have to get a license to drive but any fool can have a baby. I know, I don't want the government deciding which folks can and which folks can't have babies either, but this kind of (actually very rare) horror story is the result.


You read my mind. And I agree...as much as it pains me to see idiots having children, the last thing I want is the government dictating who is "fit to breed"...
