A Norcross man was arrested in Alabama last week for attempting to sell a Honduran immigrant to a restaurant there.
According to Florence, Ala. police, 49-year-old Ming Zhang transported the unidentified man from Atlanta to the city in northwest Alabama with intent to sell him to a local restaurant as a laborer.
When the 25-year-old victim realized what was going on, he called police.
He was approached and offered a job, Florence police Det. Justin Wright said Tuesday. He thought he was coming here for legitimate work. When he discovered he was being sold, he objected.
Zhang was arrested and charged with second-degree human trafficking on Nov. 23. He is being held at Lauderdale County Detention Center.
Officials could not verify the victims status, but believed he was an illegal immigrant. Wright did not release the name of the restaurant in question or say if there was any participation on its behalf.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation was aiding in the investigation.
Gotta love that ‘RAT “progress” that is sweeping across America! How ‘bout that “hope and change”?
How bout that hope and change?
Didn’t he flee to Afghanistan to escape U.S. economic woes ?
How much does one cost?
“49-year-old Ming Zhang transported the unidentified man “????????
So the chinese are now dealing in this? You gotta be kidding me!
Happens all the time. Human trafficking is one of the least understood crimes today, and it just doesn't happen to young girls being prostituted. It's prevalent, especially in asian communities, but also in some south and central American communities as well. It's contemporary indentured servitude.
This guy, if guilty, should spend the rest of his miserable life not enjoying the freedom he tried to deny others.
As a taxpayer, my answer would be "too much".
A man tried to sell an immigrant...was he charging by the pound?
I think you have to by the entire thing, trying to part one out is a little messy.
I wondr how much it would cost to buy a 25 year old Asian female to give me massages?
I’m pretty sure this is legal under sharia law...
I'll see you're $5 and raise you $10.
It’s actually pretty common, especially among Asians. The Asian illegal immigrant market is controlled by Asian gangs that are also involved in just about every other illegal activity that exists.
I remember a few years ago when a shipping container full of Chinese was found in a port in WA. This was after a shipping container full of dead or dying Chinese was found at another nearby port.
Ming Zhang Isn't diversity grand?
I got one as a Christmas present a couple of years ago. He was pretty damn lazy. I re-gifted him.
I think they are cheaper by the dozen. I want to start a plantation, maybe I could get a bulk rate?
“I want to start a plantation...”
Just remember to plant them head first, and plenty of watering.
Looks like slavery’s made a comeback!
You should never look a gift illegal immigrant in the mouth.
>> I think you have to by the entire thing, trying to part one out is a little messy.
That’s a shame, because there’s a lot of times I could really use an extra pair of hands.
Or a leg up.
And everyone knows two heads are better than one!
You could probably get a kidney or something, but major parts are not re-salable.
Does he have a web site? Does he take pay-pal?
It’s an old world custom. Celebrate diversity.
Was he also trying to sell his son to play quarterback for Auburn.
Chinese? Is he a US citizen?
Used community organizer 99% off
Lol, just trying to make a little Christmas money.....
Can you buy one accessorized with maybe a leaf-blower attached?
I hate to tell you, guys, but this isn’t funny.
The Asian illegal immigrant business is thriving and nobody ever looks at it. They bring in thousands of girls to work as prostitutes and thousands of men to work as slaves. We had a bust in a local Chinese restaurant a few years ago where the kitchen was found to be stuffed with illegal aliens who slept there, used the kitchen sinks for their bathroom, and in fact were on shift work and therefore there were some of them still sleeping in the pantry when la migra arrived at lunch hour and shut the place down.
I also used to work across the street in New York from an illegal-staffed Chinese garment factory masquerading as a printing company - where people literally threw themselves off fire escapes when the immigration authorities raided it. It’s not funny; Aisan illegal immigration is a huge business and a very bloody one.
The indoor model would have a vacuum attached, right?
Duly chastened, Mr. Tick agrees, fidgeting and looking down at his shoes...
You know what? The whole thing is so absurd, open borders, illegals everywhere I am going to have to make a joke or go crazy.
I’ll throw in a short vacation in Afghanistan
It would be ‘very short’ in one way or another.
I was reading another thread that asked if California was ready for an illegal bill like Arizona. Lol, I think it’s waaaay too late for that out there.
0pansy may be just the catalyst to cause “change” in California -
What with 0pansy pushing for instate subsidized tuition for illegals while raising tuition for American students -
Possible jobs for new grads might be nice too -
“Cap and Trade” will sure kill any chances for American grads
Ming the merciless!
The potential slave is from Honduras.
Ahhhh....let’s all join hands and sing of the joys of diversity!
