Well, well, well, it looks like Mohave County was sending "help" to Texas before the FLDS children from the YFZ were even out of emergency shelters.
Who exactly is this woman, Lenore Knudson from Kingman, Arizona, currently home to Warren Jeffs?
So before Texas had even wrapped up the rescue, someone from Kingman, Arizona, the Mohave County seat, was winging her way here to help us understand the cultural sensitivity required in dealing with polygamists and how children should stay with their parents, even if they are known to be participating in Felony acts... Then, Marriott comped her whole stay for her. www.http//:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriott_international.
That's interesting. Did they comp all people who were here to help the Texas children? Social workers, attorneys, law enforcement? They all had to travel from across Texas to the scene to help. Were any of them comped by Marriott as well? Or was it just this one woman from Mohave County? Maybe they comped the stays of the Safety Net Committee members sent to help the Texas children, too?
The "special training" Lenore accomplished here appears to have been performed on behalf of the Texas Supreme Court Childrens Commission. Gee, I wonder who is running that?
Y'know, I've asked more than once how these volunteer ad lidem attorneys could have ever in a zillion years thought sending these children back to their abusers was in their best interest. I really want to know who the ad lidem attorney for that boy with 19 identifiable bone breaks in his little body. How was it exactly in his best interest to return to whoever was "responsible" for him? Was that particular attorney the beneficiary of any of this special Mohave County training?
Lucky for us her training sessions were video taped, so maybe we can get some answers from that.
Did Mohave County call us and offer their "help"? Or, like complete idiots, did someone here call them to ask for it? If so, who made that call and why was Lenore Knudson from Mohave County considered an expert on abused cult children? Did she give advice to prosecutors at Tony Alamo's trial? What sort of expert exactly is she? Is she an expert on abused cult children or an expert at convincing people that the felony crime of polygamy is harmless and should be decriminalized.
The owner of Marriott International is one of the largest contributors to the main stream LDS Church today. Why was he, or someone with his company, so interested in helping Texas children that they would donate free hotel space to someone sent here from Mohave County? Who else did they comp rooms for?
