    Warren Jeffs FLDS compound in Texas surrounded by police

    An FLDS compound has been surrounded by police In Eldorado, Texas.

    The Eldorado Success newspaper reports nobody is being allowed in or out, and an armored personnel carrier was deployed near the ranch when it was surrounded yesterday afternoon. This may have something to do with Texas Child Protective Services. The agency has been spotted outside the YFZ Ranch, which was built by Warren Jeffs and his followers.

    A small FLDS town in Texas is now filled with a barrage of law enforcement and child protection officers after a raid on a polygamous complex on Thursday.

    Law enforcement is still on scene in Eldorado this morning.

    The YFZ ranch is home to members of the FLDS church.

    State and local law enforcement officers surrounded the YFZ ranch Thursday afternoon and made entry late last night. (more and video at link)

    I'm glad that at least so far, everyone is remaining calm. Remember David Koresh and the Waco incident?

    State child welfare investigators are interviewing children at a West Texas religious retreat built by polygamist leader Warren Jeffs, officials said Friday.
    Child Protective Services spokeswoman Marleigh Meisner said the Texas Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement helped investigators gain access to the complex near Eldorado. She said CPS is "investigating whether any children are in danger" but said no decisions had been made on whether to remove any children. (more at link)

    Yes, and it immediately came to mind when I read this thread.

    I doubt the children will tell because they have been so brainwashed and scared out of their minds. I seen an interview with a couple of women who had been in his community and got away. They said they would hold the babies under water or smack them in the face when they cried to teach them not to cry and that is why you never see their children cry and they had arranged marriages for little kids. I did see another polygmist colony somewhere else that was run very differently and not about abusing children. I think there are good and bad but this is definitely a bad one.

    Interesting...

    Quite an approach considering the fact that I do not recall Jeffs being a gun toter like Koresh and his group, but I may be confused....I am wondering if there was a tip on a mass suicide/murder going to happen....
