A Reasonable Proposition

I think Tim Lynch has outlined a good idea for moving forward from the FLDS Texas Nightmare. This is what the Texas CPS would do if they were serious about upholding the law and pursuing justice.

    • Send the 300 children under age 4 home since there has been no evidence of abuse and they are a decade from being forced into underage marriage.
    • Send the boys over the age of 4 home because there is no evidence of abuse toward them.
    • Allow the police one more week (since it’s already been three) to present evidence of abuse. Absent that evidence they should send the rest of the girls home as well.

Tim suggests that the investigations can continue past the next week, and prosecutions can come whenever there is evidence for a trial, but holding innocent children in detention, away from their parents for three weeks, without being able to present any evidence of abuse is a slap in the face of justice.

  1. Reach Upward says:

    Texas officials would dispute item #2, claiming that all boys are being abused because they are being raised to become sexual predators. Strangely, I guess they have no problem with boys in Texas’ inner city neighborhoods being raised to become sexual predators, because they’re not going in there and removing them wholesale.

  2. David says:

    That’s true. This whole thing is based on the proposition that the entire FLDS society at the YFZ ranch is an incubator for abuse. They took this action despite the fact that they are doing nothing about the real and perpetual incubators for abuse that exist in the inner city neighborhoods. There they throw up their hands, call it a cultural phenomenon, and offer to subsidize many of the people who live there.
