Cost for polygamist raid expected to top $14 million


Have all of us become so inured to such dollar amounts we're not fucking shocked by this story?

I'll single out one charge mentioned. Others are available at the link.

Four hundred sixty children were taken in plus a number of adults. The state paid about $2.4 million! to rent buses and facilities to house the children and some of the mothers.

Jesus H Christ at the Burj Al Arab (Dubai - look it up). What kind of accommodations were provided?
The cost of the April raid on a polygamist compound in West Texas is expected to top $14 million, about one-third of it in lawyers' fees, according to a published analysis of state records.

A mother and son shriek with delight as they are reunited two months after the FLDS raid in Texas.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram published its findings Saturday after reviewing more than 400 pages of invoices, e-mails and other state records that it obtained under an open-records law request.

More invoices for overtime, travel and professional services are expected to boost the final tab, the records indicate.

The biggest chunk of spending is expected to stem from court proceedings after the state seized about 460 children from the Yearning For Zion Ranch near Eldorado, which is owned by the polygamist Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
