This definitely needs to be looked into. Child abuse cannot be tolerated. But when addressing child abuse, officials do not have the prerogative to violate the civil and constitutional rights of U.S. citizens. Texas appears to have opened itself to serious lawsuits.

On a blog called "Grits for Breakfast" I just read that there were actually only 5 young mothers under the age of 18. Of the 26 others that fell into the alleged 31 underage mothers, Texas officials said something like 'The tell us that they're over 18, but we don't believe them.'

It's sickening the damage that government does to itself and to liberty when it gets out of control.

The worst part of this whole constitutional tragedy is that the phone call that prompted this illegal raid was likely a hoax.

I don't think that AW or anyone who stands up for the rights of these Americans who practice polygamy necessarily agrees with the practice of polygamy (at least as far as forcing anyone into a plural marriage). However, what we do believe in is the rights protected by the Constitution.

Further, as is demonstrated by this blog entry, these children are being subjected to horrible treatment in the name of "protecting" them. With a government like this, who needs enemies.

Dear Frank,

I agree with you. Seeing the abuse these families are experiencing reminds me of what happened to Parker Jensen's family here in Utah.

It is so discouraging that we have allowed big government to creep into our lives so much, to undermine parental rights, and to threaten our very families. It is an outrage.

We need to stand up against this phenomenon before more families are put through the institutional meat grinder that is the "system."

None of us want anyone we love to be caught in that trap. But, unless we act, such occurrences will become more and more common.

What do you suggest we do? (Ugh . . . that does not involve military hardware.)

Thanks for commenting!
A.W.
