Diversity is our strength!

Don't be a xenophobe:
GREENFIELD, Calif. -- A father is accused of trying to sell his 14-year-old daughter for marriage in hopes of getting money and 150 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 Corona, 50 cases of Modelo beer, several cases of meat, two cases of wine, 50 cases of Gatorade and 50 cases of soft drinks, 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.
All you racist hatemongers probably want to deport these poor innocent victims of intolerance and bigotry, just because you don't understand their culture.

Me? I'm just wondering whatever happened to that Corona.

UPDATE: Just realized that, because this happened in California, the girl could sue her father for selling her for a few million below market value.

UPDATE II: Video via Brenda Walker:

Stupid MSM reporters don't even bother to tell us what happened to all those cases of Corona.

UPDATE III: Genghis at AOSHQ: Gatorade?


  1. It might be a bargain compared to Natalie Dylan.

  2. The lengths people are going through to stock up with this looming depression..

  3. I dunno, Stace. If you want to go down this particular road, aren't there similar stories we could dig up about Southerners?

  4. Obviously the Corona was confiscated to be used at the Hispanic Heritage Inauguration event, one of the many themed parties PEBHO is throwing.

    Of course, it was annotated as a 'gift' since they are only taking 'donations' to pay for the event...
