UAV Video of Texas polygamist compound

images_buster No audio on this, but it is high-res video of the compound in Eldorado, TX.

This is very cool – and my brother works for the company that builds these UAVs, so I think they are even more cool 🙂



I love the night-vision views.


  1. I am no authority on the video, but I understand it was done at the request of law enforcement as part of serving the warrants.

  2. Was this video taken during the operation to rescue the children? Thanks.

  3. PA Announcement: Did you know?
    1. The Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, my state, has 2 wives?
    2. The previous “central” (i.e. Federal) IT minister, the “only” politician who has done anything useful (i.e. brought in ADSL broadband), was sacked due to a clash between the families of the two wives?
    3. This was actually reported on the news?
    4. The news channel reporting this was owned by the said ex Minister’s brother?
    5. The only other news channel reporting this was the one owned by the opposition party?
    6. The opposition party is led by this person (, whose previous career was as a “hot” actress?
    7. Nobody cares ’bout these here?

    Sigh. 🙁

  4. I read a news article about how the men were praying and crying during the raid.

    (Curiously … none of the women or children were seen crying …)

    Those poor God fearing men: all that hard work, and then being robbed of their “toys” … it’s a tough world … *sigh*

  5. @Yuvi. Yep. But it is illegal here. And the allegations are that it is also a sort of front for pedophiles. And we let it sit here for four years before we did anything about it. That is so wrong.

  6. I can’t help but think – Isn’t a polygamist compound a place where polygamists live?
