Texas seizure of polygamist-sect kids thrown out

H/T: TitusOneNine

FINALLY! A Texas state appeals judge has ruled:

" . . . the state had no right to take more than 400 children from a polygamist sect's ranch, a ruling that could unravel one of the biggest child-custody cases in U.S. history."

"The state never provided evidence that the children were in any immediate danger, the only grounds in Texas law for taking children from their parents without court approval"
"Every child at the Yearning For Zion Ranch in Eldorado was taken into state custody more than six weeks ago, after Child Protective Services officials argued . . . "
"scattered them across foster facilities all over the sprawling state, with some siblings separated by as much as 600 miles."
IF this ruling is sustained, heads need to roll at the Texas Childrens Protective (so-called) Serices. The have messed with this multitude of families without cause. As you may already know, I have no love for the teachings of the FLDS. I believe they must obey the laws of the state just like you and I. However, the state must never be allowed this kind of out-and-out oppression. Can you say pogrom?
