Law Abuse

The Texas Supremes
have ended the dream.

Which dream?  Why the dream that the state government has the right to take children away from parents on the slightest suspicion.

I'm no big fan of renegade polygynous Mormons.  I wrote a novel where the leader of such a group was the bad guy and his followers were a bunch of dupes.  But you can't take children away from people just because they believe stupid stuff.

Do I suspect that some age-of-consent laws were broken?  I wouldn't be surprised.  But present some evidence to that effect!  And don't just take 400+ kids hostage to make people talk.

Officials this intrusive
themselves become abusive.
