The vindication count reaches 150

    The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Texas authorities are now seeking to dismiss or have dismissed cases involving about 150 FLDS children. That's 150 children whose traumatic removal from their families, warehousing in dreadful conditions in the days after the raid on the YFZ ranch, and subsequent institutionalization across Texas, until appellate courts intervened, was all for nothing. And still, only one child has been returned to foster care. So once again it's worth remembering what Texas CPS kept saying in defense of its actions: that this is what they always do.
