Hey, wait a minute here, you are talking about the USA.

With that kind of talk the next thing will be are phones are being tapped and our rights of being a citizen will be diminished.

Who do you think you are talking to anyway

>I've always been exceedingly proud to be a native Texan, but today, I
>hang my head in shame, disgust and anger. Texas is/was a place for
>families, but what's happened in West Texas smacks of Stalinism!!

>I don't understand that much about the FLDS, and I don't agree with some
>of their beliefs (and some of the practices like underage or forced
>marriage should be stopped), but that DOESN'T MAKE THEM ALL CRIMINALS!!
>
>
>
>We Texans have ripped 437 innocent children from their parents on what
>may turn out to be a prank phone call, however, even if the phone call
>were true, we should have went after the criminal - not innocent
>children and parents!!!
>
>
>
>These 437 kids' and their parent's lives are, at the moment, destroyed,
>and it's a certainty that their lives will be forever changed by this
>event. Imagine someone taking your kids away, and your brother's kids,
>and your uncles kids, and sending them to a foster home hundreds of
>miles away, and their's nothing you can do about it?!
>

>We Texans could have put an overseer into the compound to both insure
>safety, and to do investigations on the supposed crimes(s), or we could
>have removed the males from the compound while we did more
>investigations, but instead, we have heartlessly punished the children
>by tearing them from their parents/siblings, and all that they know and
>love. What's next? Do we go after the Mennonites and the Amish?
>
>
>
>I can only imagine the horror these parents must feel not knowing what's
>to become of their children - not being able to comfort their children,
>and give them hugs and kisses goodnight, and my heart is truly broken
>when I think of those 437 children who will be in some foster home or
>group home among people/places/things they are unfamiliar with, they'll
>be frightened, confused, and longing for the love and security that can
>only come from family.
>
>
>
>It's truly a sad time for Texas and the U.S., and I, for one, will keep
>trying to remember that we are a nation founded on the principle that
>you are innocent until proven guilty, and that we do not punish children
>for the sins of their parents!!!!!
