"I guess anyone who attends a Court proceeding had better be prepared to be singled out as a threat."

And for heaven's sake, don't stare at the witnesses.

Agree

PATRICIA, I agree with you 100 percent!.. BETTY, although Im not a dancing baptist, I agree with you too!! WELL.. your another one who is right on track with me.

Do they have a dossier on you?

If Utah is going to start dossiers on anyone who is willing to give up their life for their cause (or their religion) and not just the FLDS... they will have a lot more than 16 dossiers.

I think this fear of the FLDS enforcers is a myth(just like many of the myths and fears we insist on holding onto about the FLDS). Just like the myths that caused Texas to over-react and go into the Ranch with tanks and swat teams (even thought they faced NO armed resistance) for what could have been a simple child abuse report investigation.

Re: mensem

"let by gones be by gones"

You've got to be kidding. The FLDS track down their own people who try to leave their cult.

Don't think for a minute that the FLDS men haven't been planning a lawsuit since the day CPS came to their front gate.

FLDS are not a religion. They are a evil cult. Don't let that sheep like appearance fool you. Its better to look like a sheep rather than a wolf if you are out doing dirty deeds.

Re; Clarence

It's a good thing Texas law enforcement decided to protect the judge against attacks from people like you. Who knows what heinous crimes you were planning.

Were you hoping your criticism of their efforts would cause them to let down their guard?

David

To non-FLDS,
Anything I've heard Bill Medvecky say was wise and I agreed with him so what's your problem?

To: caution--beware
You must be one of them then, keep your lies to yourself and leave decent people alone. Are you looking out for space aliens who traveled all the way across our galaxy, just to peer in your window?

Get a clue!

"Freeing the enslaved women and protecting the precious children"? How? By obtaining a warrant based on a claim of abuse against someone who had never set foot at YMZ? By imprisoning them in uncomfortable, disease ridden [chickenpox, to be specific] makeshift prisons and then forcibly separating them? By pretending 37 y.o. women were teen mothers? By claiming their IDs were fake so they had an excuse to do so? *laughs* That's what you call "protection"?

Dossier on me?

Utah is welcome to create a dossier on me; they'll find it extremely boring.

-mowed lawn
-took kids to soccer game
-went hiking
-washed car
-watched a baseball game -- on TV!!!

Don't blame the Texans

I have two sons living in Texas, and believe me, they say all the folks in Texas aren't happy with Texas CPS's actions against the FLDS. Read the posts on Texas newspapers, if you don't believe me.
Texans may stand up against child abuse--so do most all of us. But many, many Texans stand up for the Constitution, too. And some of them are Baptists! I don't know why the Baptist church allowed their buses to be used--I think it was a mistake on their part--but that's no reason to tar everybody with the same brush.

"Anyone that thinks Jessop wasn't trying to intimidate witnesses at Warren Jeff's trial, is a fool."

Yeah, right. He was trying to put a hex on them with his evil eye.

Re: Willey (er David)

I'm not really surprised that you agree with Bill, I just question Bill's sanity in agreeing with you.

"Don't think for a minute that the FLDS men haven't been planning a lawsuit since the day CPS came to their front gate."

And I'd be among the first to encourage it. Their rights were severely violated. They deserve justice and compensation.

How do you spell Dannite?

IT IS AMAZING HOW SLANDERS AND LIES CAN LEAD TO CAPTIVITY AND ABUSE BY STATE AND NATIONAL ATHORITIES RIGHT HERE IN THE USA. NOT ONLY THAT,BUT WHEN THESE ATHORITIES SEE THERE POWER BEING QUESTIONED THEY GET VINDICTIVE AND HATEFULL. EVEN WORSE IS WHEN NEWS PAPERS LIKE DN DECIDE TO HELP THE VINDICTIVE AND HATEFULL BY ADDING THEIR TWISTED TWO-BITS.

Why Should I!!!!

I don't pretend to support or ridicule the FLDS religion, they have been around for a long time, just as any other religion, religiion in general is a good thing for a person or group of people to believe in something of higher order. Where this all takes a bad turn is in the abuse of that belief to the point of some form of manipulation or even violence.
I am not saying that there has been violence, but there are plenty of people who have so called freed themselves from YFZ who paint quite a different story than what the people of YFZ are trying to paint.
My issue with the Warren Jeffs culture is that fact that this group does very little but live off of the taxes that the rest of us americans provide. They do very little to support themselves. Point in case the amount of food stamps used by this group. If they have legitimate businesses and contracts then where is the money to support those who need the support. Why is it Jeffs is driving around in 50K + vehicles and yet each week more taxes are used to support their group with food.

"One last thing, if ADULTS want to have more than one wife, or more than one husband, why should that be against the law??? Why should we say anything about it."

Because future generations would start to look like Clark Gable, John Wayne, Gary Cooper, Kerry Grant, or Elvis Presley.

Freddie

"Now that the kids are back, a little retribution wouldn't be out of the question..."

You got that right... like a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Texas and the CPS for violation of human rights.

Randi

The raid of the FLDS ranch in Texas was a complete abuse of the constitutional civil rights of those people. The initial call was a hoax and it now appears there hasn't been any abuse and the number of pregnant teenagers is down to 1. Barbara Walther is a very confused or sick person, the only protection she needs is from herself.
