Texas Allegedly Knew Barlow Not at Ranch before Raid
State of Texas 41, King George 28
41. Texas officials allegedly knew, before entering the YFZ Ranch, that the only person who was suspected of causing harm to one of the FLDS children was not present at the ranch, leaving the officials with no valid constitutional reason to enter the ranch.

As mentioned in a previous post, attorneys representing three FLDS fathers filed a petition for writ of habeus corpus that described the living conditions faced by the FLDS children while in state custody. This petition also makes serious claims regarding the legitimacy of the raid of the FLDS community, alleging that Texas authorities had information indicating that Dale Barlow, the subject of the initial search and arrest warrant, was not located at the YFZ Ranch. According to the petition:

The Agency [CPS] entered the Community with law enforcement officers based upon a telephone call from a known non-local number in Colorado Springs, Colorado to the New Bridge Family Shelter by a thirty three year old childless female identifying herself as a 16 year old female who said that she was Sarah Jessup Barlow and spiritually married to a 49 year old man, Dale Evans Barlow,[who] was physically and sexually abusing her. The Agency’s pre-raid investigation determined that the accused 49 year old man was an Arizona resident, under supervision on probation by an Arizona probation officer who resided in Arizona. Before execution of the warrant, Sheriff Doran [sheriff of Schleicher County, Texas] was also advised that Dale Barlow was in Arizona and not within the Community."""

That goes to show what lengths Texas authorities went to, to disregard the constitution. I read somewhere that there are 100's of emails between authorities trying to coordinate a raid, PRIOR to the "Rescue Call". If that is true, someones head should roll. These children may well have been in a less than ideal environment, and if so it's really too bad. NO ONE CAN SAVE THEM NOW!!!
