Sources in the child welfare business tell me these kinds of things are taken with deadly stone-faced seriousness.
CHATHAM, ONT. - A 16-year-old Ontario boy was given a stern warning by police for posting an online ad that offered two children for sale.
Chatham-Kent police said the ad included photos and stated that the kids had to be gone in a week or they'd be put on the streets.
A concerned citizen called police at about 9:30 p.m., Thursday night.
Police tracked down the teen, who admitted to posting it as a joke.
Investigators confirmed no children were at risk and he was warned about his actions.
