Police Chief in trouble for writing love letter to one of the FBI's Most Wanted
SALT LAKE CITY- A police chief who wrote a letter pledging love and allegiance to the leader of a polygamous sect, who was on the FBI's most wanted list at the time, has been accused of misconduct.
"I love you and ... know that you have the right to rule in all aspects of my life," Fred Barlow wrote in the October 2005 letter to Warren Jeffs, who faces rape-related charges in Utah and Arizona. "Without priesthood I am nothing."
Jeffs leads the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which practices polygamy. Congregants revere Jeffs as a prophet and are taught to be obedient, including marrying at his order.
Barlow is the police chief of a joint department serving Colorado City, Arizona, and Hildale, Utah, which have 10,000 followers of the church.
In his letter, Barlow warmly addressed Jeffs as "Uncle Warren" and referred to himself as Jeffs' "servant."
"I am praying for you to be protected and yearn to be with you again," Barlow wrote. "I and all of the other officers have expressed our desire to stand with you and the priesthood."
Jeffs was arrested near Las Vegas on Aug. 28, and a judge Thursday will decide whether he will stand trial in Utah on charges of rape as an accomplice for forcing a teenage girl to marry an older cousin. He also faces similar charges in Arizona.
Federal authorities obtained Barlow's letter Oct. 28, 2005, when Jeffs' brother, Seth Jeffs, was arrested in Colorado with items believed to be intended for Warren Jeffs.
The Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board is using the letter as evidence in one of three misconduct charges against Barlow, who could lose his certification. The Salt Lake Tribune newspaper obtained the letter and published it Friday.
The Utah Peace Officer Standards and Training Council this week voted to conduct its own investigation of the police force, whose officers are accused of being too loyal to Jeffs.
Barlow did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment Friday.

This maggot works in the area where Jeffs operates and he is on the payroll, so to speak. All the cops in that area back this piece of shit. They will actually arrest journalists, tourists, and even other LEO's seeking info on Jeffs or his activities. It's a whole separate world in and of itself. Pretty amazing shit, but not enough room here to go into detail.

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion
