Just in case you've been living in a cave of late, some polygamy ranch in Texas recently got raided by the cops:
A judge today ruled in the Texas polygamy case that all 416 children from the Yearning for Zion Ranch must remain in temporary state custody, even as Texas Rangers investigate a possible hoax behind phone calls made last month that prompted a police raid of the sect's compound two weeks ago. "This is the hardest, toughest decision a judge makes any day," state District Judge Barbara Walther said of her ruling to keep the children from the parents who have, in some cases, allegedly abused them.
The judge also ordered the fathers and mothers to undergo DNA testing to establish parental relations. The tests will be performed Monday at a mobile testing lab outside the San Angelo Coliseum, where most of the children are being held (27 teenage boys were sent to a camp for juvenile boys and girls 400 miles away).
Separately, police have identified a Colorado woman as a "person of interest" in regard to telephone calls placed to a crisis center hotline in San Angelo.
In truth, the only reason I'm even posting anything this sick story is because I needed an excuse to display that picture (above) of one of the polygamists wives who was actually on the "Larry King". Damn, talk about somebody in serious need of a makeover--get her some tweezers quick while you're at it.
