Video at link DALLAS - Theyre not criminals. Theyve broken no laws. But theyre being held against their will by the State of Texas. Why? Its a tragic story about what can happen when you are alone in the world and lose control of your rights, your money, and your ability to complain.
Jean and Michael Kidd never imagined their retirement would play out like this. I feel like I am not in America, said Michael Kidd. I cant believe I have been hi-jacked off the street, virtually from the hospital, and imprisoned, Kidd told FOX 4.

If this can happen in America without national health care imagine what will happen to people when we have national health care!
67 and 70??
I’ll bet I could still through a punch that would get somebody’s attention!
Wow. They need help outside of what the state and court are “giving”.
This is just Terry Schiavo, the sequel. She wasn't a criminal, and had broken no laws, but she was forced into a death more cruel than the worst criminal on death row can be given because she had become inconvenient to her so-called "husband", Michael.
I lived in FloriDUH at the time of Terry and I hate to see it being replayed here in Texas. Perhaps, if we raise enough h$ll with Gov. Goodhair and the Texas Legislature, WE can do what Foridians could not!!!
I live about an hour away. I wish there was something I could do to help. My parents are closer...
I’m sure this story hitting news will bring forward people willing to help, but if not, any ideas?
Aaahhhh...you’ve just gotta love those state social workers.Goodness knows that Hussein does.
"We see you have some money there. Give it to us."
Millions of Americans feel the same way. This is no longer the land of the free.
Because of creeping socialism, there will never be peace on earth until man kind has lost everything. After that, every man will sit under and tend his own vine, and no politician will be able to take it from him ever again. Without the politicians, swords will be turned into plow shares, and man will learn to war no more.
Follow the money....
What is it with Texas? Are these the same people that grabbed all those kids from the Mormon compound, and kept them even after it was revealed that the original complaint was from a nutcase crank caller? God help this poor couple.
They might have been confused and in ill health when they went into custody, but their minds seem to have cleared up. However, there is now no way out of the “incompetency” rabbit hole until somebody else speaks up for them. Good on the TV station for getting this far. Wonder how many more are in such rabbit holes?
The last sentence is the money-line. The state is ALWAYS the last resort and it sounds like another case of state "social workers" over reacting without knowing any of the facts. They do the same thing with children.
At least they’re being FED.
Bureaucracies can never love. They can only control.
Only people can care for people.
This is why historically “health care” was a function of the work of the body of Christ.
If folks want the state to replace God and His church, this horror story is what you’re going to get.
There are millions of lonely Americans right now who are finding out the hard way what the soulless state will do for them, and to them.
Liberals infest Austin like fleas.
Hello ACLU? Something useful you could do for a change?
Something is definitely not right here. These poor folks are being “jailed” for their own good and get to pay for it as well. Just wonderful. Older folks can look forward to more of this type of behavior under 0bamacare.
