The ruling by the Texas Supreme Court is an assault on widely prevailing standards of conduct and common sense. Every person "of ordinary prudence and caution" would say: Get the children out of there immediately; keep them away until an investigation is completed and their safety is assured!
As a result, the ruling creates the potential for a huge public backlash. This Texas Supreme Court is, after all, is supposed to be a law and order court, one noted for its conservative doctrine. Where in conservative doctrine can you find any support for this type of decision? Where in any doctrine, but the most offensive and bizarre, is there a justification?
What safety does the law offer to any of us if this type of decision can be rendered and upheld?
How can the concurring justices remain seated on the Court after making a decision that results in the return of children to an environment that may well represent a center for deviance beyond the ability of most to comprehend?
Where's the competence?
Where's the justice?
Where are the children?
