I truly don’t care what they do until it comes to children. The idea of a little girl, as young as 14, being forced to marry an older man repulses me.
But here’s the question that keeps bugging me and maybe you can help me out here. Why didn’t the authorities remove all the adult men from the ranch and leave the children there with their mothers until this whole thing can be straightened out? It would have been much less stressful and frightening for the little kids if they could have stayed in familiar surroundings with their mothers. There could have been some authorities on the site to see that everything was kept in order for however long it takes to decide what happens next.
As bad as the situation at the ranch may have been, it seems to me the little kids have suffered the most since the raid, and some of that suffering seems to me could have been prevented…at least for a little while.
