this is why you want to watch your kids at all times
this isn't the first time i've heard of this. this actually happened to someone my aunt knows...their boys were kidnapped and sold to gang. if their aim was to resell them to rich family, okay...but instead, these gangs crippled the children, cut out their tongues so they couldn't speak if confronted and they're forced to live on streets to beg for money.
they found one of the children but the other is still missing. The US Department figures were lowered to avoid "offending" Beijing. It's actually 10 to 20 times that.
Especially valuable are boys. American children are worth more because they're assumed to be healthier and more intelligent and can go as high as $50K per child.
