And people wonder why we say society is sick

Here's another one from JammieWearingFool and it's one that has us shaking our heads. A man tried to sell his daughter for beer and meat:

A father is accused of trying to sell his 14-year-old daughter for marriage in hopes of getting money and 100 cases of beer in return, Greenfield police said.

Macelino de Jesus Martinez, 36, was arrested Monday on suspicion of trying to arrange to have his daughter marry Margarito de Jesus Galindo, 18, for $16,000, 100 cases of beer, several cases of meat and other items, authorities said.

The girl moved in with Galindo and when payments were not received, her father called police to get his daughter back.

Greenfield Police Chief Joe Grebmeier told KSBW Action News 8 that both Martinez and Galindo, who are immigrants from Mexico, face the possibility of being deported as illegal immigrants.

Grebmeier also said that both men didn’t fully understand that what they were doing was wrong. ...

Galindo was arrested and booked into the Monterey County Jail on suspicion of statutory rape, and Martinez was arrested and booked on suspicion of receiving money for causing a person to cohabitate.

Arranged marriages are common in several cultures, and police said that it is not an issue in this case.

Forget the arranged marriage thing because in the United States (welcome to America, you twits) 18 is the legal age of consent unless the parents agree to cease being guardians, and in most states that can't happen until the child in question reaches 16. This is simply disgusting that a father would literally sell his daughter, and for the most retarded reasons. Beer? Meat? Give me a break.

I hope the cops send both of these idiots back to where they came from. If not, then we hope they send them to jail for a very long time. Additionally, as Galindo is charged with statutory rape, if he goes to jail, he needs to go to general population where a lot of the big boys there will show him what rape really is.
