Oh sure, women can have all the fetuses they want. But a man? Not so much.
The man, later identified as Clint Ruin, was also found to be in possession of a large volume of Steroid Maximus.
Authorities’ suspicions were first aroused by the smell of the man’s breath. Further evidence was obtained by scrapings from the wheel of the suspect’s automobile.
Was there evidence of intent to distribute, or was it just a quantity for personal use?
“Mr Kuen was arrested after a tip-off that baby corpses were being sold through a website “advertising black magic”, according to the Reuters news agency.”
So either he had gotten them from there, or he indeed had intent to distribute.
Cartman, is that you? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenny_Dies
“like these fetuses, I wasn’t born yesterday”
appallingly classic line?
We all know that fetuses are only safe when in the protective care of men; women just want to abort them all for sh*ts & giggles.
Mr Kuen faces up to one year in prison and a fine of not more than 2,000 Thai Baht ($63; £40) if found guilty.
1 year in prison is probably for repeat offenses (now that’s a thought…) For a first offense, he’s looking at what… SIXTY BUCKS?
You know he’s getting more than that for them on the black (magic) market.
presumably he won’t be allowed to keep the “contraband”
Well… one year in a Thai prison counts as more of a punishment than any monetary fine, so they probably figure a fine isn’t necessary as anything more than a formality :)
(and of course the fines are proportional to Thai income levels, though 2,000 baht is really not that much to even to the poorest employed Thais who may make 2,000-3,000 baht a month).
From the article “Mr Kuen was arrested after a tip-off that baby corpses were being sold through a website “advertising black magic”, according to the Reuters news agency.”
Nothing to worry about, folks. He’s just a secret agent for anti-abortion groups who are trying to make everybody believe that there’s a black market for fetuses.
Purchased over the internet?
“We have to send the bodies for forensic test to identify whether they were foetuses, removed illegally by abortion, or corpses of babies,” she told the BBC.
They are not human, he was ripped off.
