D/L THIS REPORT WANING ALL PARENTS AND GRAND PARENTS THIS IS DISTURBING.
Texas sect children return home
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.
Children – seen here after the raid in April –
were separated from parents
The children, aged between six months and 17 years, have spent nearly two months away from their families
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.
Oh, by the way, we are paying for all of this with our tax dollars,
Court win for Texas sect parents
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.
