Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right
Law enforcement officials converge outside the temple walls at the YFZ ranch in West Texas.
You would have to have no access to the news, or completely oblivious, not to have heard of the goings on with the "Polygamous Cult" pedophile behavior down in Texas. [the latest from CNN]
Law enforcement was waiting for any opportunity to go all out after the group. A false allegation, or a set up, could have resulted in the trap being strung.
Raping children is wrong. Marrying more than one spouse is illegal. I'm not disputing that. Police can target individuals and groups, false allegations are gladly accepted. There is no oversight of police at role call, so anyone anytime can be arrested and hauled away for political reasons, not crimes committed. Police can have a secret "Enemies List", arresting citizens for political excuses.
If there is a number of drunk driving arrests in a community, would that be a reason for police to storm into all homes in a town, kick in doors, confiscate all liquor, close the bars, and suspend all driver's licenses?
Police should investigate allegations of crimes having been committed. Let's say there was a concentration of a minority community in New Haven, Connecticut. If one or more of them were accused of a despicable crime, would it then be okay to surround all the neighborhoods, military style, and haul off all the women, men, and children separately off to "camps"?
If there is to be any perception of living in a "Free Country", authorities and police have to follow rules of law, proper procedure, and at least seem like they aren't lying liars bent on pursuing their own personal agendas. Courts have to be accessible. Judges, prosecutors, police, department of children and families, defense lawyers, and other operatives of the police and the courts have to act legally and in the best interest of the public.
The sad fact is, they don't. We all then suffer.
