FLDS children, fostering, and SAH/WOH

It has been ruled that the state will retain custody of the FLDS children and that they will begin placement in foster homes. How do you feel about (among the many things to consider) the work status of potential foster parents? If both parents WOH, then the children will be in either daycare or school for part of the day. I don't think that these children are emotionally equipped to deal with that environment. If one parent can SAH however, I think a smoother transition could be made from the seclusion of the ranch to the introduction of the outside world through homeschooling. Can you imagine sending an 11-year-old FLDS girl into a public school classroom? She'd be eaten alive!

Thoughts?

First, I don't think you can compare a compound to a regular neighborhood regardless of how it looks.


Second, there is a big difference between teaching your children what you believe is "womens" work and making them marry men 4 or 5 times their age at 15.

I actually have to say that I agree with you.


I have huge issues with social services.

Although I'm glad you think you know something about it! Next time try someone who hasn't spent the last year in criminal justice classes.>>


Really?

So basically... you are reiterating that you think that knowing about a crime makes one an accessory. I can see we aren't going to get anywhere, as you are not responding to any of my actual points, and your point seems to amount to "Because I think it should be."

Oh no that is not it at all.

I just gave you the definition. That you can't comprehend that there has to be an ACTION to be an accessory is not my problem. If I know about a murder and don't tell anyone, I am not an accessory. I'm only an accessory if I am ACTIVELY assisting the perpetrators to hide from the authorities, and then only if there is some sort of charge. If I'm merely not telling on them, at most it's withholding evidence, but then that's only if I'm asked and I lie. People have no obligation to report crimes of any kind (Unless they are one of the mandatory reporters, which are pretty specific.) and it is not illegal.

If you can't comprehend that your definition is not accurate then that isn't my problem.

Honestly, tell me, are you making this up? Because that is absolutely NOT how the definition of accessory is applied. It requires ACTION to be an accessory. Simply not reporting a crime does not constitute action. It is not considered assisting. You may want to look up "assisting" in the context of criminal justice. Again, where exactly are you pulling your information? I've got a textbook right here that proves my point. Where's your proof? (You sure like "Because I said so!", don't you!)
