    It's so hard to know what is true anymore. I have no idea if the government acted prudently here.

    Seems this is a case where the CPS is damned if they do, damned if they don't.

    Their "crime" was not in abusing children, IMO,their "crime" was in trying to be separatist and live away from the rest of society. Havent we learned from Waco and Ruby Ridge that if you try and become autonomous our gov't thinks you are somehow a gang of criminals?:angel2:

    Waco and Ruby Ridge were nothing like this: the issues are not even close.

    Did the kids go to school or meet with government madated homeschool requirments? That's the only part of being apart from society I question. The rest of it sounds like a dream come true.
