A Chinese couple sold their three children – Into slavery? To a jerky factory? To Nike? What? – so that they would have more time and funds to commit to their online gaming addiction.

(DONGGUAN, China) According to Sanxiang City News, the couple met in an Internet cafe back in 2007 and bonded over their obsession with online video games.  A year later, the parents — who are both under 21 — welcomed their first child, a son.  Days after his birth, they left him home alone while they went to play online games at an Internet cafe 30 km away.

In 2009, Li Lin and Li Juan welcomed their second child, a baby girl, and came up with the idea to sell her for money to fund their online game obsession.  They did so, receiving RMB 3,000 (less than $500), which they spent entirely shortly after.  The couple then proceeded to sell their first child and got 10 times as much for him — RMB 30,000, or about $4600.

Upon having their third child — another boy — the parents followed in their previous footsteps and also got RMB 30,000 for him.

They were finally turned into authorities when Li Lin’s mother found out what her son and his girlfriend had done.

When asked if they missed their children, the parents answered, “We don’t want to raise them, we just want to sell them for some money.”

Ah yes, the old “we just wanted to sell them” excuse. Any judge should be expected to understand here…

Wait, WHAT?!

No word on the fate of the three children. We can only assume it was jerky factory after all.

    Nothing like the sanctity of having a mother and father…… What lucky, lucky children. 

  • And yet same-sex couples and single parents can’t adopt either at all or in a timely fashion.

  • Julien Guévremont

    why adopt when you can just buy them?

  • Even a dog would be a better parent than those scumbag.

  • how can you sell a child to pay for a gaming addiction? Yet we gays are a
    blight and abomination of the human race. Just the thought of what they did to those  children may my skin crawl. I hope they pay dearly for what they put there children through.
