be spending their future away from their mothers, at least for the forseeable future.
With nothing to go on, the judge decided to strip custody of all 416 children from the parents.

The children stay with the state. By now you know that Tom Green County Judge Barbara Walther came to that conclusion today after two long days of testimony about whether the FLDS culture is inherently abusive to children.
She said yes.
Now, to get their children back parents will, at a minimum, have to submit DNA samples, undergo psychiatric evaluations and agree to safety plans focused on . . . well, who knows at this point. A CPS investigator could come up with no proposals for what parents might do to be reunited with their children.
Still, attorneys made spirited arguments for returning the children, speaking of them by age, name or color. The state divided the FLDS children and young mothers into color-coded groups: blue, pink, orange, brown, grey, depending on their ages and circumstances. Several young mothers were allowed to leave the Colesium or Wells Fargo Pavilion to come to court today; they wore identification wrist bands.
The mothers took the stand this evening and said they would do anything to be reunited with their children: move off the ranch, agree to temporary restraining orders prohibiting contact with their husbands, counseling.
They agreed, you could say, to become single mothers and cut themselves off from their friends, family and faith.
Now, Texas Child Protective Services is apparently arranging to send their 416 children all over the state and even across the country.
Those in the courtroom did not have to wait long for the judge to make her decision -- the recess lasted just five minutes, though I'm sure Walther has been thinking it over since signing the order two weeks ago that led to the children's removal.
Media were assigned to the last row in the Courtroom A, which meant that to see and hear the proceedings I had to stand up. All the rows ahead of me were filled with FLDS members. During the wait, a number of men sat with bowed heads and seemed to be praying.
A young couple sat directly in front of me. The woman, Lori Jessop, 25, is staying in the shelter at the Wells Fargo Pavilion with her three children. She was brought to court today to testify about her marriage and willingness to protect her children.
Her husband is 27. When she arrived at court, she found him among the crowd and slipped into the bench beside him. I realized they had not seen each other in two weeks.
He put his arm around her, held her close through hours of testimony. Her rubbed her back at one point. They whispered back and forth. She is an EMT and told the judge that she would take their children -- ages 4 to 11 months -- and move off the ranch and go to work if she could stay with them.
After the judge issued her ruling, they stood and stared at one another, a look of shock on their faces.
I have no idea what becomes of her now, whether the state will let her continue to stay with their children. I suppose not.
We heard other complicated stories today. One attorney said she represented a 17-year-old girl who is a Canadian citizen and was visiting her grandmother who lives at the ranch when the raid occurred. Now she is a ward of the state of Texas.
One attorney said he represents a 5-year-old boy who has Down's syndrome and other serious medical problems. What about him? he asked the cult expert who testified for the state. Wouldn't he be better off with his mother?
Linda Musser, 56, said she was in Lubbock where her 29-year-old daughter is hospitalized and undergoing dialysis and treatment for other medical problems. Musser's 13-year-old son was taken away. Musser, who was in a monogamous marriage but is now legally divorced, told the judge she would move off the ranch, perhaps to Lubbock to be near her daughter, if that is what it would take to get her son returned. Her older sons would support her.
The judge decided otherwise, for now.
It just sounds too cut and dried, like they are eager to close the case fast. How did this lady know about the goings-on at the ranch? If she just made this all up, the odds of this actually happening is pretty dam high if you ask me. The odds would be even higher if she's got a mental illness too. No, I'm not convinced yet.
People worldwide support Dr. Paul too :-)
Real eyes realize real lies
We want our country back
Every year is a year for Ron Paul!
1.) If they wanted it to "go away", why would they set up a woman in another state which would, in turn, make them look stupid and duped? Personally, I think this event is a giant pimple on the face of our slide to fascism. But, I've never thought the allegedly abused girl ever existed anyway. Otherwise, they would have announced that she was staying at a safe-house of some sort by now.
2.) I'm sure there was some way on the internet to find out about this sect of LDS, or she was involved with the LDS in some way and discovered it. So the short answer to "how did this lady know about the goings-on at the ranch?" is that there were no "goings-on" and she made it up. (But....it must be true I saw it on the Evening News!! :) )
3.) Mental illness seems very plausible at this point. Combined with a certain hate for Mormons or Polygamists.

this FLDS in Arizona, Utah, and TX--have been in the news, including the trials of 2 leaders going on since about 2006.
any hoax person could have gleaned this info...its been in media for months.
If this woman is guilty, she should pay for all police and costs to the local taxpayers for the raid and its consequences.
finally put a report on this up.
Not to mention, restitution to the families!
Think the authorities will reunite the 400+ children in TX with their familes now? I've got 20 fiat dollars that says they don't ... sad.
Two of every three children in foster care in Texas are on psychotropic (mind altering) drugs, including toddlers. One doctor's whole practice is built around prescribing these meds to foster children. Scary!
Check out this news report from NBC:
Once can only assume this will be the fate that awaits hundreds of FLDS kids who are in state custody.
That says all their kids are going to pedophiles or going to be experimented on.
Mainstream incontravertable articles prove whose behind all the world's child kidnapping rings, sacrifice, etc.
