Texas Supreme Court orders polygamist children returned to parents

In Libertarian on May 29, 2008 at 9:48 pm

From MSNBC Breaking News:

The Texas Supreme Court ruled Thursday that children taken from a polygamist sect’s ranch should be returned to their parents, saying child welfare officials overstepped their authority.

The high court affirmed a decision by an appellate court last week, saying Child Protective Services failed to show an immediate danger to the more than 400 children swept up from the Yearning For Zion Ranch nearly two months ago.

“On the record before us, removal of the children was not warranted,” the justices said in their ruling issued in Austin.

  1. Thank you so much for covering this. I have not seen it mentioned very much (if at all) on other blogs.

  2. It’s about time. Justice was too slow in coming for those people.

    I’ve heard a lot of bad things about Texas CPS. Hopefully, this will inspire some serious activity aimed at shutting their doors for good.

  3. Good to see that the Texas kidnapping has been stopped.

  4. Justice prevails! Now it’s time to sue the pants of the bastards responsible for this travesty.

  5. Great, So now the Super Pedophiles can go back to Their Baby Love.

  6. I rather doubt the government would have returned the kids if that was true.

  7. Pedophiles, by definition, are interested in sex with prepubescent partners. The girls being married off in the polygamist compound are not prepubescent.

  8. Don’t bother the smear artists with technicalities..
