Scot: "We had an opportunity with a microscope of the world looking in to say, 'Our system is flawed, how can we truly make this better for families?'"
Johana Scot runs the Parent Guidance Center. The organization advocates for parents whose children are taken into C.P.S custody. They advised some FLDS parents.
Scot: "We're not getting rid of anonymous reporting, which is what we should be doing. We're not getting rid of the fact that we can do these things with absolutely no evidence. You yell at your children and someone sees you and they can make a call on you."
C.P.S released a final report on the raid two days before Christmas. Of the more four-hundred children taken into state custody, C.P.S said twelve had been sexually abused. Former FLDS member Flora Jessop applauds the state's efforts.
Jessop: "I don't think that they overstepped their bounds because they got a call from what was supposed to be a child in need, and they went to do their job. What they found was so overwhelming that their hands were tied. What do you do with 400 children?"
Members of the FLDS are planning to mark the one-year anniversary of the raid with a gathering this afternoon at Fort Concho in San Angelo.
