You've got to know when to hold 'em

The Texas Gestapo puts a new twist on "Texas Hold 'em."

The San Angelo Standard-Times - "CPS had about 26 young women in custody who say they are adults but whom the agency considers minors. Jessop was one of those, but the agency has not filed any additional non-suit notices, Tom Green County court clerks said Tuesday, leaving the number at 25."

Since when is the only crime to be a minor, and you get held until you prove that you're not?

"If we possess credible evidence that other minors in question are over 18," then CPS will release them, as well, said spokeswoman Marleigh Meisner, declining to discuss what specific evidence led CPS to reverse course in Jessop's case. "We are still in the midst of an investigation. We cannot just dismiss them without credible evidence."

Let's see, their "crime" is being underage. No wait, that would be the evidence of someone else's crime. Yup, these people are in the evidence locker until someone can spring them. Cattle.
