Here’s a story I saw in the Salt Lake Tribune:
|Arrest warrant issued for woman whose bogus tip allegedly triggered FLDS raid
The Colorado woman alleged to have sparked the raid on the polygamous FLDS ranch in Texas with bogus tips may be on the run.
On Monday, an arrest warrant was issued for Rozita Swinton after she failed to show up for a court hearing on charges of violating her probation for one of two other false-reporting cases against her, court administrator Lori McKager told Salt Lake City’s 2News.
Swinton is accused of violating her probation stemming from her 2007 guilty plea for telling police she was a 16-year-old girl who was suicidal after giving birth.
Authorities have linked her to a phone number used to call a Texas crisis center thought to have triggered an April raid where more than 460 children were removed from the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints’ Yearning for Zion ranch in Eldorado, Texas.
Folks, that’s a two-day old story, posted on their site almost 48 hours ago early on the morning of July 15.
Look, I keep up on the news. So why haven’t I heard or read about this until this morning…and then only because I saw it about it over at WizBangBlog?
This story appears to me to be as significant as the original raid and all the media piling-on of the FLDS.
In my personal relationships, let me be as even-handed, balanced, and just as I want the media to be.
In that case, maybe I should just let the media be the media.
