Maybe I am waking up on the wrong side of the bed this morning, but, exmember, but what do you mean by "what was wrong wth the adults spending time in priosn? Some of them probably deserved to spend time in jail." I was not in Argentina and not really knowledgeable about all the details, but I do know some people that were there at the time, INNOCENT people who happened to be Family members. We may not LIKE the Family but I kind of think that the American justice system of being innocent until being PROVEN GUILTY is a good one. You can't just put someone in jail because they PROBABLY deserve to be there. Knowing the Family, I doubt if it really caused them to make changes, it probably caused them to LOOK like they were making changes. But nonetheless, regardless, you can't put someone in jail because you don't like their religious beliefs unless you can PROVE they have committed a crime. ALL of those people did not commit crimes.
