The Police State

So, it looks like someone in Colorado called in a prank phone call to 911 in Texas. The state of Texas then proceeds to abduct over 400 children from families of some religious group that most of us might consider odd.

I've been wanting to write about this ever since it happened. Shame on us for not going to Texas and standing beside those people! If there is abuse going on, then the state needs to handle this on a case by case basis.

Thank God that the court is acting properly in this, as it has ruled that the kids must be returned. Hopefully those kids will get returned to their families soon.

I strongly believe that child abuse cases should be handled by police. DFACS agents are not trained in constitutional rights the same way as police are and I've heard numerous stories where they act above the law. If criminal activity is going on, it's a police matter. DFACS should be abolished entirely.
