Hundreds detained, 400 children removed--can't wait to see *that* warrant!

A lot of the court filings are still under seal, but there must have been something really amazing about the anonymous call that sparked the FLDS raids in Texas. Otherwise, we're having a hard time figuring out how one report of one underage marriage (which should be fully prosecuted) would justify the wholesale rounding up and detaining of an entire community. If a call went out that someone in a Sandy neighborhood was a child molester, would all of the kids in the neighborhood be taken, all the men confined, and all the women "relocated"?

They might if all the men were in a Church building with a book showing a wish list of which men wanted to molest which girls. We know Warren Jeffs had a book showing how he was divvying out the girls. There has got to be more to this than they are telling us. Otherwise, they have truly bitten off more than they can chew and this will all end up like the Shortcreek raids of 53.

Agree that there had better be something HUGE that would justify this sort of state action. Every minor in this compound was in "significant risk of harm" or "victims of abuse and neglect"? Really? I'm no lawyer, but this just doesn't sit right with me. I hope the offending parties are held fully responsible, whether FLDS and/or the State of Texas.

From what I understand, when child protective services went into the compound, they found MANY underage girls pregnant or with children. Right there that tells us that there is something wrong in the community. I think this is going to turn out to be HUGE.

Lordschild, what you say may be true, but I still hope they made individualized assessments as the Constitution requires. They have detained every man in that community, regardless of the age of his wife or whether he is even married, and they have forcibly removed every child and woman, regardless of their age or the age of their mothers. That is not how our Constitution works.
