Polygamy Group In Texas

More than two dozen teenage boys taken from the polygamist sect have been shipped 400 miles away to a ranch for troubled boys and girls, the state confirmed to ABC News today.

Cameras are allowed inside the Yearning for Zion Ranch for the first time ever.More Photos
The revelation came a day after the distraught mothers of 416 children taken by Texas officials from the polygamist group pleaded to be reunited with their kids.
The women were forcibly separated from their children after the kids were moved from a cramped shelter to the San Angelo Coliseum, a sports facility, on Monday.
ABC News has learned that the court with jurisdiction over the massive child custody battle authorized 27 of the boys to be transferred Monday night to Cal Farley's Ranch for Boys and Girls.

What do you think about this happening in America?

  1. Well I can relate to this situation because I have an uncle who has more than 1 wife and has a lot of children as well. I think its not fair for all the women to be suffering for one man. All of the wives know that he has family from other women. He also has a lot of houses as well. I honestly feel bad for all the women he has.

  2. I don't know why this is happening in America. Women who do this have no respect for themselves and put themselves in a bad example to the world, now that its in the news. So many things can occur when something like this happens, children are taken away and mothers are taken away from them...

  3. What i think happening this in America is horrible because they are sending kids that are trouble makers and forcing the mother to let go of their kids and they don't have the right to do that to the mother because they don't have the right they should change that.

  5. It's crazy having more than one wife but this days guys don't really care and is not only affecting all the girls that he married.All the children that his having with all the different wifes he married those children's are going to be related, but they're not going to know and they might fall in love with each other.

  6. I think is bad than more than two dozen teens were taken away from their parents and that they took them away to a ranch more than 400 miles but if they were getting into alot of trouble then it is probably good so they could learn there lesson.

  7. In my point of view taking the kids from their parents and putting them in this place is something really messed up because they are not thinking about how their parents are feeling .

  8. It is good because they are beign sent to a shelter home. They shoudn't of taken the kids away from the parents without asking is just really horrible and disrespectful.

  9. I think its good that they are going to a shelter because I think that they need so help. Seeing this makes me wonder if there are other places where I don't know that there are people that only stay in one area.

  10. I think that the government did good, separating them because then they going to have sex with each other and thats nasty.I feel bad for the mothers because they toke away their children.In that ranch they are going to learn to read and wright and marry someone thats not their family.

  11. This is very weird, I never thought someone would have that many children, If I was in that situation I don't know what I would do, but I would teach all my kids to know how to fight so they can have people that would be scared of them.

  12. I think this is unfair because they take the kids from the mothers.The should of left them alone if they were happy. The mothers should get to choose if the y dont wants there kids.

  13. I think that the familly that had 400 childern should not keep their childearen, because I don't think familly members should have "relashenship" with othere familly members. Adrian4

  14. I think that its a good thing that they take the children away but I also think it is bad.
    The reason why its good that they take the children away is because I don't think that a few mothers can raise and take care of 416 children. The bad part is that the children will miss seing their mother(s). Maybe they should put most of the kids in a foster home or give them for adoption with responsible families.

  17. first of all I think that a woman should respect herself and should not be with a man that already have many wifes, and second it is not right for people to take away children from their parents and family, because family is something very important think for a chidren's life.
