Interesting Wording

Texas has decided to let Loiusa Bradshaw Jessop live with all three of her children, even though the state still has custody of all three children. And they will live under state supervision at a place chosen by the state.

Not much of a win there either. I also thought the wording of the headlines was interesting-the Houston Chronicle headline says “State to retain custody of newborn sect child”. The Salt Lake Tribune is trying to make Judge Barbara Walther a hero and so compassionate with their headline which says ...Mom can live together with infant and older children.”

I also noticed that the Tribune article did not state that all the children are still in state custody and they will live under state supervision and in a place the state decides. Why did they leave that information out, I wonder? To someone not reading carefully, the Tribune article gives the impression that everything is fine for this family and that is not the case at all.

CPS is still trying to get us to believe that they can not match children and parents without DNA:

In a filing today, DFPS reiterated its concerns that families may leave the state if they are reunited, and that it could not match children to their parents without
genetic test results.”

Notice that they reiterated that fact today, May 27th in their new filing. Even though as FLDS attorneys point out once again:

But attorneys representing FLDS parents argue that the recent reunion of 12 children with their families “undermines the department’s insistence that every single child is in imminent danger of abuse because of the parents beliefs,”according to a new filing.

The children’s release also contradicts the state’s claim that it can not match children and parents until DNA test results are in hand, expected by mid-June, the attorneys responded.”

And of course, CPS is terrified that people might flee to get out of their clutches. Heaven forbid that they should get out from under the jackboots of CPS.

    Thank you for your continued blogging on these issues. Yes, they’re jackbooted thugs disguised in their little business-casual attire. Wolves in semi-wolfy clothing. ;]
