Like many people, I felt that this was a case where the gov't had reason to go into this compound and see if the children were being abused. One anonymous phone call is not really enough, but together with what authorities already knew was going on in there, why not check it out. Well, the state of Texas authorities have gone on to employ that well worn tactic of using the ends to justify the means. They feel that their goals are so lofty, so ideal, that it doesn't really matter if they act like complete lying, scumbag, royal, pos to carry out these high and lofty goals and ideals. Current reporting, which has not been contradicted, but rather mostly stipulated to, is that the women who were removed from the compound have been lied to every single step of the way. From what would happen , where they would go, EVEN IF THEIR CHILDREN WOULD REMAIN WITH THEM. It's pathetic, but goes right down the same path of the infamous cases a couple decades ago of imprisoning people for child abuse when the evidence was not only flimsy, but completely made up. Check out the history of Janet Reno, if you can stomach it.
