Arkansas Family's Home Raided, 7 Children Taken During Search For Legal Mineral Product

In a story that seems too strange to be a true, a family in Arkansas has had seven of their children removed by Child Protective Services following a home search. Exactly what crime was committed that was so heinous the family had their seven happy children ripped from their home? They had purchased a completely legal "miracle mineral solution" over the internet.

According to KARZ, the "miracle" mineral treatment that is alleged to be a remedy for cancer and AIDS is responsible for the removal of seven children from the Stanley home in Garland County, Arkansas. The police obtained a search warrant to look for this "miracle" treatment, even though the treatment is not illegal. In fact, there is no law limiting the purchase of the "mineral miracle treatment," and it can be purchased without incident. However, that didn't stop the police from pursuing a search warrant and subsequently removing the family's seven children from the home.

Hal Stanley, the father, said policemen were everywhere. "Policemen here, policemen here. Over here, on the side roads full of policemen."

All of this over a mineral product that Hal Stanley says he typically only uses to purify water for their garden. Stanley says he has used the product personally, but no one else in the family uses the product. Instead, they use it as a mineral purifying agent for their garden water.

Hal claims when the police arrived, they simply said, "We are here to search your house." Hal and his wife Michelle were kept outside in the freezing cold for hours while officers searched the home with their seven children inside. The police made the parents shiver in their shirtsleeves for more than 30 minutes before the authorities even allowed them to get a coat to wear in the chilly temperatures.

After the search was complete, the officers came out with the miracle mineral product. Hal said had the police simply asked him if he had any of the miracle mineral product in his home, he would have taken them to it. Instead, they searched his home for hours for a product that Hal had purchased legally. To make matters worse, Hal says the family has never had a run-in with the law, not even a speeding ticket.

"They avoid most contact with the government. The parents have home schooled their nine children, two of which have graduated and gone on to college. The Stanley's keep to themselves, are generally self-sustained and consider themselves 'preppers'. 'There's never been any beer, liquor.' They say they've never had a run-in with the law before."
"After stepping outside they issued us a search warrant and said we could not enter our house or talk to our kids until the search and the investigation was through. … They said the charge was that we had a poisonous substance in our house and that the kids were being exposed to it and it endangered their welfare."

What about families who have bleach in their home or other toxic household chemicals? What about prescription drugs that include health concern risks that make nausea, vomiting and diarrhea look tame? The family has setup a Facebook account called Bring The Stanley Kids Home, where they will be updating information as it becomes available.
