“A California man was arrested for selling his 14-year-old daughter into marriage in exchange for $16,000 – and a whole lot of beer. Marcelino de Jesus Martinez, 36, wanted 100 cases of Corona, 50 cases of Modelo, 100 cases of soda and two cases of wine, topped off with six cases of beef. His daughter was packed off to live with 18-year-old Margarito Galindo, and the two lived as husband and wife.”. . .
“We have heard rumors and third-party hearsay of girls as young as 12 years old and younger, and men as old as their 60s, in some of these transactions,”Greenfield, Calif., Police Chief Joe Grebmeier told The Californian newspaper.”
As our soon to be Secretary of State would say, “This is not culture. This is not custom. This is CRIMINAL. We cannot have a free, prosperous, peaceful, progressive world if women are treated in this way.”
