It Became Necessary to Destroy the Children...
...in order to save them. The Common Room on several MHMR worker's scathing criticism of DFPS in the YFZ Ranch case. I can't ever recall a time I've seen MHMR caseworkers level this kind of accusation at any other agency, even DFPS. Or vice versa.
UPDATE: Grits has the actual statements from Hill Country MHMR. It is some of the most wrenching testimony I have ever read and is a damning indictment of the State of Texas. One worker's commentary stands out: "I have worked in Domestic Violence/Sexual Abuse programming for over 20 years and have never seen women and children treated this poorly, not to mention their civil rights being disregarded in this manner. It makes us all wonder how safe anyone is who has children."
