    Polygamist raid

    Hi there

    I'm new to the P&CE page, but I wanted to post about this polygamist thing going on in Texas.

    I, for one, am completely flabbergasted that in all the news coverage I've seen nobody has said much about how completely the rights of these people in this community are being trampled. They obviously choose to live a lifestyle that is not shared by their Texan neighbors. Apparently there was one phone call reporting physical violence. I'm not in favor of physical violence, of course, but I think it is outrageous that their entire community has been stormed and women and children taken into custody based on one unsubstantiated phone call.

    Why doesn't anyone react this way to the unbearable violence in our inner-cities? Why are these people being persecuted?

    WHAT IS GOING ON THERE??? WHY ISN'T ANYONE SAYING ANYTHING!! They have every right to live a life without television and crayons if they choose! I am floored. Thoughts?
