    polygamy and the cops in AZ

    I think i was watching primetime and they had a special on polygamy. They showed this small town in colorado city and the cops would haul the woman who didnt listen to thier husbands to to mental institutions. They said that the had a state police official come into clean up the town.I guess polygamy runs rampid and the police dont do anything. The only mormans we see around here are when they knock on your door. Any AZ cops/citizens here have any imput into what is going on in your state.Is this normal, should I move to Az???

    I've never heard of this??

    Do you remember the town name?

    As you can see - it's in Arizona

    And I've heard about this group. They're a fundamentalist offshoot of the LDS Church and still believe in and practice polygamy.

    Correction: Two of their police officers were decertified in 2005:

    Not a problem AZ has Colorado City, we have Boulder

    And they're in the process of losing their judge, too.

    Interesting in that the police department has multi-state jurisdiction and certification as a matter of course...

    Whats that mean?
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    This is what I found about its multi-state jurisdiction;
    The Colorado City police force also serves the adjacent polygamous community of Hildale, Utah. None of the police department's officers, however, is certified to act as a peace officer in Utah.

    Stereo? Those idiots have several wives. Try bitching in THX surround sound.

    That would be fun for about a week.

    The other part of this is that they kick out all the younger men becuase the numbers don't work. If every older guy has a bunch of wives then the young men are going to compete.

    There used to be a town down there called Johnson City that was also a hive of polygamy a few decades ago. I don't know if the problem still exists there or not. I think in the early 50's there was a raid on it by Arizona police. The raid ended up not changing anything. There are some real nutcases down there.
