News media are breathless reporting about the alleged sexual misconduct going on inside the "compound"(sic) of some members of an off-shoot of the LDS Church in LDS located in El Dorado, Texas.
On the strength of mere allegations, the "authorities" have removed some 400(!) children from their parents and their homes -- on the mere possibility that they MAY be in danger.
This is absurd. Anyone can make allegations about anyone else via the telephone. If there are crimes to be investigated, then let the authorities investigate them and let the prosecutors prosecute them as appropriate....
But, PRE-EMPTIVE MASS REMOVAL OF HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN FROM THEIR PARENTS ON THE BASIS OF ONE ANONYMOUS COMPLAINT FILED TELEPHONICALLY? This is INSANE!
Meanwhile, the media and most of America seem to receive the news reports of the development with supreme unconcern for the rights of the accused -- or for the GENUINE, long-term welfare of these children who have been removed from their homes!
This is Waco "Light," and it stinks to high heaven! I have been told (but have not confirmed) that the main CPS player in the El Dorado mess was the same one involved in the original Waco mess.
Thank you to radio talk show host Michael Savage for having also expressed his sincere doubts about the way the El Dorado situation is being handled.
