    The part I do not get is if the dept had a problem with a few/couple of families, why did they remove all the children from everyone there. It would be like someone in your town committing a crime against one child and the state removes all the children in town

    Is that the mentality of the state officials there? Moreover where is the court? Isnt it the job of judges to protect the innocent? All I see is harm being caused by the state on the children and law abiding families there in Texass.

    With so many of these underaged "wives" and so many children, how do these FLDS guys tell the difference?

    Doesn't sex abuse trump anyone's "freedom"?

    When is the court decision do? How dare the court even go home at night until these children are returned and the CPS officials Jailed?

    They say the warrant was good? The phone call that started all of this was easily traceablbe.If they traced it and lied then all of the law enforcement and the judge should be jailed and have all of their children taken out of these felons homes.

    Duh? Of course child abuse supercedes your freedoms to act with impunity under some disguise about religious freedom.

    This is news? Or posturing by parties?

    How many of the boys are pregnant or likely to get that way?

    "Protect the kids" is Texas SS speak for 'we don't like your beliefs', so they kidnap every kid.

    What a bunch of losers... the State and Fundameltalist Mormons both.

    Maybe we should cut off Texas from the US and give it back to Mexico. Texas is a national shame for what they have done and are doing with FLDS children.

    Davie Crockett and the Alamo bunch must be turning over in their graves if they can see what Texas now stands for.

    Just moments ago read another blog/article ... about:

    AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN)

    "A member of the Yearning for Zion Church was in court Thursday, demanding the release of his pregnant wife and two children."

    He is 24 and his pregnant wife is 24, but CPS has been holding her as a minor (in the 14-17yo group) since April 3.

    The husband (and attorney) have papers (drivers license, birth certificate, and numerous other documents) to prove her age. But CPS will not let this 24yo pregnant woman go that is due to deliver 10 May 08. She also has a daughter and a 2yo son.

    So much for all those "teens" (14-17) CPS claimed to have that were "either pregnant or had children".

    Anyone see "egg" on CPS face ... ;-)

    Seems to put credibility at about zero regarding CPS claims of having custody of pregnant teen mothers. Yeah ... 24yo "teen". Ha ... what a joke is CPS.
