    Uh Oh. Texas Child Protective services makes a Big Oops.
    The state of Texas should not have removed the more than 460 children it took from a polygamist sect's ranch, an appeals court ruled Thursday.

    n its ruling, the Texas 3rd District Court of Appeals decided in favor of 38 women who had appealed the removals, as well as a decision last month by a district judge that the children will remain in state custody.

    IMO, Texas Child Protective Services didn't make the "Big Oops" but the court did with this ruling today. Appraently these judges don't think the threat of rape is enough of a reason to protect children. That the FLDS believes it is acceptable for their daughters to be forced into a "marriage" and raped should be "evidence" enough that those children should be removed. But these 3 judges think it's only sufficient evidence if the police catch the man immediately prior to or during the act. Unreal! I guess Texas Child Protective Services can no longer protect children but only be there when something bad happens or after the fact.

    Yup. You make a good point there. Seems Texas is having trouble deciding what constitutes an immediate threat, and what doesn't. On one hand, you don't want to give CPS unilateral authority... On the other, these issues usually require an immediacy of action.

    Will be interesting to see this situation fully play out.

    Maybe it's that new math they aren't understanding. Ummm, let's see, 16 years old, minus nine months, minus the age of the baby, hmmm, who are you 'married' to again, Miss?
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    I agree, it is a very serious situation when you have to remove children from their homes. I fully expect all child services to be fully accountable, even to a criminal level if need be. But, if a girl's parents believe it's ok for their under age daughter be forced into a so called marriage, and therefore into nonconsensual and illegal sex, then that is sufficient evidence of danger. What more does the court need? The parents' approval of such horrendous behavior is a threat to the child and should be sufficient evidence that the parents are unfit to care for and protect their children. It's sad these judges lack the kahones to stand up and protect innocent children.
