    FL - Parents Tried To Sell Baby In Store Parking Lot For $30

    PENSACOLA, Fla. A couple was charged Friday with trying to sell their 2-month-old baby for $30 in a store parking lot, authorities said.
    Robert G. Ellingson, 23, approached two people in the PetSmart parking lot and offered them a beer. When they refused, he offered to sell his child, Escambia County Sheriff's officials said.
    "At first they thought it was a joke," sheriff's spokesman Glenn Austin told the Pensacola News Journal. "But then the mother yelled to the group that they were trying to sell the baby. And one of them called us."

    I agree Filly, I cannot believe these stupid idiotic people, dont know if they want the money for drugs as $30 doesnt sound like enough, how can anyone put a price on a human life. I am absolutely disgusted.

    Thank the Lord they didn't ask a pedophile. That poor baby would have been snatched up by a perv in a heartbeat.

    Ah, a two-month-old white baby? People pay much, much more for them! But then, it's only legal if it costs $20,000, and the money goes to someone else.

    hey kids, do meth much?

    would it have been an illegal act if you bought the baby, got their information & license plate # & then called police?

    (florida again..... figures!! WTF is going on down there?!)

    They sound like drug addicts, only someone on drugs would do something so stupid and openly. Did they actually think they wouldn't get caught?

    And that is exactly what a hard life of drugs and not taking care of yourself will do to you!

    You're right....but I have to say NOT EVERY ADDICT WOULD SINK THIS LOW....I was a meth addict 2 yrs ago... (for 2 yrs) Had I of gotten preg. I would quit, and God, NEVER would sell my baby....But I do realize there ARE addicts who will do this...it does sound like these people were addicts...hate to sound ugly but if they were willing to sell their baby for $30 perhaps the baby would have been better off...at least to a good family....

    This story is pathetic on so many levels. I hope that baby is placed in a stable loving home.
