More than 3 in 4 FLDS cases dropped

The vindication count in the FLDS case now is up to 338, according to a count in the Salt Lake Tribune. There are 100 cases not yet decided. One child was returned to foster care. That means for more than three of every four children – and counting – all the trauma inflicted when they were torn from their families was for nothing. And, by the way, the cost of the FLDS case alone exceeds the entire cost of a tiny family preservation program Texas started. And even this small program failed to reach most eligible families, according to an article in the Houston Chronicle.
