Default Texas -- FLDS couple granted an order to keep state away

FLDS couple granted an order to keep state away
Custody battles for other children in raid to continue

By ELIZABETH ALLEN

A couple from a polygamist West Texas sect won a small victory Monday,
even as their custody hearing was put on hold.

Judge Martha Tanner of the 166th District Court granted Lori and Joseph
Jessop Sr. a temporary restraining order against the Texas Department of
Family and Protective Services, along with the temporary custody they
had already gained of their three children.

Meanwhile, lawyers for parents in a separate custody case filed in Bexar
County dropped their lawsuit to regain full custody of nine children for
two families, saying they'll use a different strategy.

"We do not intend to let it go at this point, and we'll be in the
process of seeking review through the district court in San Angelo,"
said Gerald Goldstein, representing Rulon and LeLand Keate.

A district court in Bexar County ruled May 23 that the Jessops and
Keates, members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter
Day Saints, should be temporarily reunited with their children, 12 in
all, after they and about 460 others were taken by the state in an early
April raid.

Investigators entered the FLDS' Yearning For Zion Ranch on a telephone
tip about abuse that has since been discredited as a hoax. While there,
they saw what they said were numerous underage girls who were pregnant
or had children.

The Texas Supreme Court late last month upheld a 3rd Court of Appeals
ruling that the state didn't have enough evidence to order into foster
care every child who lived at the YFZ Ranch. But the court allowed
restrictions to be placed on the families' living arrangements,
including continuing the criminal investigation into alleged abuse.

The Jessops, by pursuing legal claims in a Bexar County court after one
of their children was moved there, have gained more freedom from those
restrictions.

The Jessops and their lawyers were squaring off against lawyers from the
state Attorney General's Office on Monday when AG lawyer Frank King
filed a plea arguing that the case should be heard in the West Texas
court where it originated.

Tanner ruled that the plea was actually a motion to dismiss and denied
it, a move the state was ready for.

After dispatching another lawyer out of the courtroom, King stood to say
his office was filing an appeal, putting a stop to the hearing until the
4th Court of Appeals rules on it.

Tanner agreed to the stay, but issued the restraining order that for now
keeps CPS investigators from continuing their investigation.









An Inconvenient Truth about Child Protective Services, Foster care, and
the Child Protection "INDUSTRY"

Child Protective Services Does not protect children...
It is sickening how many children are subject to abuse, neglect and even
killed at the hands of CPS.

every parent should read the free handbook from
connecticut dcf watch...

http://www.connecticutdcfwatch.com

Number of Cases per 100,000 children in the US
These numbers come from The National Center on
Child Abuse and Neglect in Washington. (NCCAN)
Recent numbers have increased significantly for CPS

Perpetrators of Maltreatment

Physical Abuse CPS/Foster care 160, biological Parents 59
Sexual Abuse CPS/Foster care 112, biological Parents 13
Neglect CPS/Foster care 410, biological Parents 241
Medical Neglect CPS/Foster care 14 biological Parents 12
Fatalities CPS/Foster care 6.4, biological Parents 1.5

Imagine that, 6.4 children die at the hands of the very agencies that
are supposed to protect them and only 1.5 at the hands of parents per
100,000 children. CPS perpetrates more abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse
and kills more children then parents in the United States. If the
citizens of this country hold CPS to the same standards that they hold
parents too. No judge should ever put another child in the hands of ANY
government agency because CPS nationwide is guilty of more harm and
death than any human being combined. CPS nationwide is guilty of more
human rights violations and deaths of children then the homes from which
they were removed. When are the judges going to wake up and see that
they are sending children to their death and a life of abuse when
children are removed from safe homes based on the mere opinion of a
bunch of social workers.

THIS IS AMERICA'S HIDDEN HOLOCAUST

Currently Child Protective Services violates more constitutionally
guaranteed liberties & civil rights on a daily basis then all other
agencies combined, Including the National Security agency/Central
intelligence agency wiretaping programs…

DSS and affiliates rewarded for breaking up families

A recent study has found that 12-18 months after leaving foster ca

30% of the nation’s homeless are former foster children.
27% of the males and 10% of the females had been incarcerated
33% were receiving public assistance
37% had not finished high school
2% receive a college degree
50% were unemployed

Children in foster care are three to six times more likely than children
not in care to have emotional, behavioral and developmental problems,
including conduct disorders, depression, difficulties in school and
impaired social relationships. Some experts estimate that about 30% of
the children in care have marked or severe emotional problems. Various
studies have indicated that children and young people in foster care
tend to have limited education and job skills, perform poorly in school
compared to children who are not in foster care, lag behind in their
education by at least one year, and have lower educational attainment
than the general population.
*Casey Family Programs National Center for Resource Family Support

80 percent of prison inmates have been through the foster care system.

The highest ranking federal official in charge of foster care, Wade Horn
of the Department of Health and Human Services, is a former child
psychologist who says the foster care system is a giant mess and should
just be blown up.

http://abcnews.go.com/print?id=2017991

Four rigorous studies have found that at least 30 percent of America’s
foster children could be home right now if their parents had decent housing.

This study found thousands of children already in foster care who would
have done better had child protection agencies not taken them away in
the first place.

The bottom line? - Child Protective Services and the Foster Care system
for the most part turns out young adults that are nothing more than
walking wreckage...

CURRENTLY CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES VIOLATES MORE CONSTITUTIONALLY
GUARANTEED LIBERTIES & CIVIL RIGHTS ON A DAILY BASIS THEN ALL OTHER
AGENCIES COMBINED INCLUDING THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY/CENTRAL
INTELLIGENCE AGENCY WIRETAPPING PROGRAMS....

CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES, HAPPILY DESTROYING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT
FAMILIES YEARLY NATIONWIDE AND COMING TO YOU'RE HOME SOON...

BE SURE TO FIND OUT WHERE YOUR CANDIDATES STANDS ON THE ISSUE OF
REFORMING OR ABOLISHING CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES ("MAKE YOUR CANDIDATES
TAKE A STAND ON THIS ISSUE.") THEN REMEMBER TO VOTE ACCORDINGLY IF THEY
ARE "FAMILY UNFRIENDLY" IN THE NEXT ELECTION...
