From The Frying Pan To The Fire - Or Is It The Other Way Around?

Los Angeles, CA

Devon Calloway, six week old son of 17-year-old Dominique Calloway was kidnapped in front of her home on West 42nd Street in South L.A. by two women who had previously tried to buy him for $6000.00.

Apparently, two women approached Ms Calloway on Saturday outside a 99 cent store, offering $6K for the child. They even showed her the money.
She told police she did not take the money but accepted a ride home, said Det. Maria Rivas of the Los Angeles Police Department's Newton Division.

Apparently, she saw them again on Sunday trolling around in a Ford Explorer. Then they came by on Monday.
She said she did not agree to the deal but brought out the child for the women to hold.

Is it just me, or has all this just been one bad idea after another?

My money's on the kid being found and there being a hell of a lot more to this story than what we've got. I'm thinking there are a few holes here and there in this story.

And if not, god help the kid. With a mother like that I'll be surprised if he makes it to puberty. If he survives to the end of the week.

If you know anything about this one call the cops at (323) 846-6576 or (323) 846-6547.

I guess I haven't cornered the market on stupidity after all.
