Dwindle Dwindle Texas Star - More Children "NonSuited"

The count rises of children abused by the state of Texas;

The Deseret News
- "Eleven more children were 'nonsuited' on Tuesday, Texas Child Protective Services spokesman Patrick Crimmins said. That brings the total number of people dropped from the court case to 315."

Out of 439. That means 71%. The number will continue to grow. I'm sure it will exceed 400. The only question is, will it get to 438?

"The reasons for nonsuiting a child vary, CPS said, including no evidence of abuse or the parents taking appropriate steps to protect the child from harm. A nonsuit effectively ends the court oversight and requirements for the parents, although CPS could still maintain some role in working with the families."

Count on the reasons almost entirely being that there was no evidence. Had there been any, I doubt there would be an "appropriate steps." Remember that Merrianne Jessop is in state custody and her potential abuser has been incarcerated since last year. Texas took her back into custody while there was virtually no chance of abuse.

As usual, Texas mixes the thing they WANT you to believe with the real or predominant reason for something occurring. If one child was released in a situation that could be characterized, even PARTIALLY as having to do with "appropriate steps," they would elevate it to the status of the REAL or PREDOMINANT reason, namely that there was no evidence. Remember when there were scores of young girls between the ages of 14 and 17 that were or had been pregnant?
