Texas State Over-reached Removing Children from Compound

A Texas 3rd Court of Appeals ruled CPS did not have a legal right to remove children from the FNS compound on the charges of child endangerment, MSNBC reports this afternoon.

Exactly what we posed when the law enforcement officials simply went into the compound, and without proving laws were broken or children were in immediate danger removed the children enmasse from their homes and parents, particularly mothers.

all based on an anonymous phone call and witness who we have yet to learn has come forward to face questioning about details of lawbreaking and endangerment.

Court: Texas had no right to take polygamists' kids
May 22 01:43 PM US/Eastern

A state appellate court has ruled that child welfare officials had no right to seize more than 400 children living at a polygamist sect's ranch.
The Third Court of Appeals in Austin ruled that the grounds for removing the children were "legally and factually insufficient" under Texas law. They did not immediately order the return of the children.

Child welfare officials removed the children on the grounds that the sect pushed underage girls into marriage and sex and trained boys to become future perpetrators.
