CPS Threatens Mental Health Workers with ARREST over FLDS.

The travesty continues.

From the "Express News" of San Antonio - I have worked in Domestic Violence/Sexual Abuse programming for over 20 years and have never seen women and children treated this poorly, not to mention their civil rights being disregarded in this manner,” one wrote. “It makes us all wonder how safe anyone is who has children.”

Yeah, the CPS is helping alright.

"Mental health workers sent to emergency shelters in San Angelo last month to help care for the hundreds of women and children removed from a polygamist sect's West Texas ranch have sharply criticized the Child Protective Services operation, saying it unnecessarily traumatized the families.

The CPS investigation of suspected child abuse and its decision to seek state custody of all 464 children punished mothers who appeared to be good parents of healthy, well-behaved and emotionally normal kids, the workers said in a set of unsigned written reports made at the request of their regional governing board after a briefing Tuesday.

A few described tensions quickly developing between the two groups of workers, including threats by CPS to have interfering mental health staffers arrested."

It's worth reading.
