Friday, Oct. 27, 2017, investigative journalist Terri LaPoint spoke to the Alabama Federation of Republican Women at their biannual convention in Prattville, Alabama.  LaPoint spoke about about abusive practices of government child protective services.

LaPoint said that bank robbers have more rights than a parent under investigation by state child protection services.  They are the Department of Human Resources (DHR) in Alabama.

LaPoint said, “If you are a parent you can lose your child without any real evidence, without any due process.”  Many parents have been told, “The Constitution does not apply to family court.” “The first couple of times I heard that I disregarded it,” but other parents kept saying that they were told that.

Saturday, August 26, 2017, Alabama Attorney General candidate Sam McLure spoke to the Alabama Constitution Party at their summer meeting in Prattville’s Islamorada Fish Company Restaurant at Bass Pro Shop.

McLure said, “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act. (Dietrich Bonhoeffer a German pastor and theologian who was killed in 1945 for opposing Nazi Germany).  If you are not willing to die for your political beliefs then get another hobby. Thievery and murder are the order of the day. Tyranny is not the greatest enemy of freedom, apathy is. I long for the day when Alabamians are more concerned about being on the wrong side of eternity rather than being on the wrong side of history.”
