    Some people want to go against all, be it parents rules or laws of the land. They will back anti anything and try to go against DCF with their beliefs. They loose their children and cry it’s not their fault.

    Marijuana around the kids………it is now legal in some places but what caught my attention is the pointed reference to them being “anti government”. THey were arrested after a rally and he had some pot. How many people do you know that have been busted for pot, around the kids, and did not lose the kids? Plenty of cases. Either there is more to this story or it seems anti government people ( you know, people who follow the Constitution) better get prepared for everything they do to be useed against them.

    per huff post- the father took the children (in louisiana) at gunpoint from a foster care home some time ago…..the grandmother (mothers mother) ended up with them and this past tuesday the childrens parents found out that the court had given sole custody of the grandmother (in the tampa area)- according to the article, they may also be towing a 2012 FORREST RIVER pop-up with florida tag # BHNV-86 behind their pickup truck.

    From another source…

    “According to investigators, the couple lost custody of the two boys after an anti-government rally in Louisiana. The father was charged was possession of marijuana in the presence of the children.”

    I wonder how they lost custody to begin with. I would do everything in my power to have my children also. This is sad to me.

    I pray for these boys.
