FLDS Texas just wants to take the time to say thank you to those who have worked so tirelessly to prosecute the FLDS for their crimes against children.
To Greg Abbott the Texas Attorney General: You and your office have done what no other state has been willing to do. You have fought for the children who have been victimized by the FLDS cult. Eric Nichols and Angela Goodwin have been brilliant in their presentation and have been backed up by a truly awesome staff. They have gone the extra mile to get things done, contacting potential witnesses, interviewing, reviewing documents, listening to tapes, whatever it took to make sure the case was airtight.
A special thanks to Sergeant Wes who has acted as Co-Case Agent and Co Document Custodian. He has had to be away from his family continually since April 2008 and along with Ranger Nick has dug deep into the evidence and found everything they could find, not only against Warren Jeffs, but also against the others who are under indictment.
To the Texas Rangers, the public now knows what it didn’t know back in April 2008. They know they were lied to by Willie Jessop and a host of sobbing FLDS women. Sally Jeffs is the perfect example of the liars they were. She went on national television and told anyone who would listen that there were no underage marriages occurring at the YFZ or anywhere in the FLDS communities. What a liar she has turned out to be. 3 of the underage brides were her daughters. Y’all might have had to stand there and take what was dished out at the time, but now that the truth is known, y’all are shining brighter than ever.
There are others who have helped uncover the cult that calls itself the FLDS, the Mankins who have written about it in their paper and shared their knowledge with the rest of us, Sheriff Doran and his deputies who have had to stand watch over the men, being inundated with visitors who think that the visitation times and visitor numbers apply to everyone but them. I could keep going, but the main thing I wanted to do with this post is to give a public thank you to those who probably don’t get many Thank yous in their line of work.
Feel free to add specific thank yous in the comments as you see fit.
