Arizona Cleans Up FLDS Community
The prophet of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Warren Jeffs, has been in prison for a couple of years. During that time, the infrastructure of the Hildale, Utah and Colorado City, Ariz. has been dismantled. The bankruptcy courts have changed the single trust structure that controlled all property and now the Arizona Attorney General Thomas Horne is pushing to shut down the twin towns' police department because it discriminated against non-FLDS members. What else is happening in the polygamous community? And is this the beginning of the end?
