Texas sect children return home

The raids at the Yearning For Zion ranch started on 3 April

More than 400 children who were seized from a polygamist sect in Texas have begun returning home.

A judge in Texas signed an order allowing parents to take the children, who were removed from the sect’s ranch by state authorities in April.

Officials had accused members of the sect of forcing young girls into under-age sex.

But last week the Texas Supreme Court said officials had failed to prove the children faced immediate danger.

Following Monday’s ruling the first parents had emotional reunions with their children, the Associated Press news agency reported.

"It’s just a great day," said Nancy Dockstader, as she embraced one of five children taken by authorities.

Texan sect reunions within days

More than 400 children taken into care from a polygamist sect in Texas can rejoin their parents from Monday, state officials have announced.

The state’s supreme court ruled earlier that protection agents had had no authority to seize the children in a raid on the ranch where they all lived.

State officials had accused adult sect members of abusing children.

   Yesterday I heard of an elected Texas official that said the State should take the assets of this Mormon Church sect (The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints)  to cover the expenses from the State’s kidnapping of over four hundred of their children. To you sir I say DON’T TREAD ON ME or my fellow CITIZENS.  I for one have had enough of you and your swine.  Texas law enforcement is out of control at every turn.  To my fellow citizens: I suggest you take that RETARD check, if and when you get it, from the IRS and buy ammo; an idea I got from reading Benjamin Franklin’s auto biography.  If you do not have a gun give the ammo to your neighbors that do have arms; then when the pigs come for your children or property or liberty, we all shall take arms!  I do not say this as eloquently as Thomas Jefferson when he wrote: "God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. … And what country can preserve its liberties, if it’s rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.": Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President – Source: November 13, 1787, letter to William S. Smith, quoted in Padover’s Jefferson On Democracy
    2008 TEXAS BUM PIG AWARD       
 Take one prank phone call and here come the pigs.
  At least these children were not burned alive as were the children in Waco!
  I cannot imagine what the State told those poor kids or the torrent of emotions they must have endured, and the parents as well.  I know from my own personal case, the State told my former wife that if she did not do as they said, they would take our kids.  The result was the destruction of my family, I can well imagine the damage done in this fiasco will reverberate for generations to come.
Legal Cost?
  Oh, by the way, we are paying for all of this with our tax dollars,
 thus this years "Texas Bum Pig of the Year" award.  $$$$$$$.$$

   Court win for Texas sect parents  

Martha Emack, one of the parents who brought the case

The Supreme Court in the US state of Texas has ruled children taken from the ranch of a polygamist sect must be returned to their parents.

Officials raided the compound in April, saying young girls were being forced into marriage and sex. The children were placed into foster care.

The court said child welfare officials had overstepped their authority.

It said that it had not been proven some 460 children taken from the ranch were in immediate danger.

The Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints had denied abuse and said it was being persecuted.

Now scroll down this blog and see how I really feel about all of this and more!
