Kidnap? I hope you're joking. This day was a long time coming, and I think we're all lucky it didn't turn into another Mount Carmel.

Well they were raided after someone called in and told the authorities that sexual abuse was happening and such, perhaps no one at the compound had done that before.

It's going to be tough for them to adjust, I'm sure many of them believe in their religion and won't want to join "regular" society

Didn't read the article...but this guy moved them down from Utah/Arizona in 2006 (I believe). Related to the FLDS religon in parts of Utah.

No kidnapping involved. Unfortunately these women and children were placed in a situation that was harmful and have now been removed from said situation. However, b/c of our crappy country their situation probably won't improve much b/c they don't know of a different/better life.

I wouldn't say placed, I would say raised. That doesn't make it any better (in fact in a lot of ways it makes it worse).
