Mom Makes Joke About Selling Son For $12, Gets Investigated By CPS

Mom Makes Joke About Selling Son For $12, Gets Investigated By CPSA proud mother found herself under investigation for human trafficking for joking about her three-year-old son on Twitter.

“This time last week, I was the subject of a human-trafficking investigation,” Magnolia State Live writer Alex McDaniel wrote in October.

“The saga began when a caseworker and supervisor from Child Protection Services (CPS) dropped by my office with a Lafayette County sheriff’s deputy,” she wrote.

The two told the writer she was under investigation because someone called CPS and reported a Tweet.

McDaniel had written, “3-year-old for sale. $12 or best offer.” The Tweet was a gag based on something McDaniel’s son had said.

“That tweet was what the caller used as evidence that I was a threat to the well-being of my child,” McDaniel wrote. “And it was that tweet that sparked the most hellish week of my life as I prepared for a home visit in which my case worker would inspect my home and the possibility of more interviews with my son.”

“All because enough people believed I was actually trying to sell my son on Twitter for $12,” McDaniel wrote.

Fortunately, McDaniel was able to hire an attorney, who got the case dismissed.

McDaniel thinks the tip was made by someone who does not like her columns. Unfortunately, the informant can never be held accountable because tips to CPS are kept confidential in Mississippi.

“What upsets me more is the idea of anyone using an agency designed to protect Mississippi’s most vulnerable children as a weapon to take someone down for no legitimate reason, McDaniel wrote.

  1. Some idiot had waaay too much time on her hands.
    This kind of [email protected] is only one of the reasons I have nothing to do with “social” media.

  2. Sadly, the mind-set of today is not what it was yesterday. Today anything you say can and will used against for investigation and for court. That’s why I believe it’s imperative that a law that protects the informant should be turned around that can prosecute the informant if the informant does not have “PROOF” when they make the complaint.

    Here’s what I suggest the people do to protect themselves from over zealous and problem causing people who like to intentionally cause other people to suffer for their complaints. And once they proved to be false, their identity will be known to the public.

    1. An informant must either go to the CPS dept. or to the police department to file a complaint.

    2. Then the informant must write a “Statement of Facts” or an “Affidavit” along with what ever evidence they have with them.

    3. Once they read and understood the Affidavit, they sign it with the understanding that if any part of the affidavit is violated, they have perjured themselves and are subjected to be charged with “Perjury”

    4. Once this is done, the an investigation is conducted based on the facts of the affidavit and nothing more!

    5. A:) If the investigation is proven by the charges of the affidavit then allow the adjudication system be initiated and proceed from there.

    5. B:) If the investigation proves to be false, according to the facts of the affidavit then prosecutorial procedures will be initiated against the informant immediately.

    6. The informant will then be charge with many charges and then it goes to court.

    This may somewhat be a little overdone but it will either slow down or stop the many complaints against parents because someone has a “BEEF” against you for one reason or another. When they are told that they have to write a statement and then its converted into an affidavit and they must sign it they have opened themselves to possible judicial proceedings if they lied on the affidavit.

    I promised you all, once the informant, any informant, must go thru this procedure, they will think twice before filing a complaint because doing so will put them into the “HOT” seat and not be allowed to go free from their malicious attack against innocent people.

  3. 1. Don’t post anything on line. It doesn’t go away, any idiot can read it, it’s a writing that is evidence in and of it’s self. A spoken comment can always be denied: “I didn’t say that”.
    2.The any idiot referred to above can just copy your written comment and forward it to anyone, including the “authorities” for action.
    3. The “authority” in question, surely didn’t believe the allegation but, since it would be an easy and safe investigation, and as it would keep the investigator away from something that could be dangerous (or difficult) it must be investigated fully, thereby justifying the “authority’s salary.
    4. No one has a sense of humor anymore because they can’t. In today’s sick world, someone may be trying to sell their kid for $12. A family in California bound their 12 kids up at home.
