Just watched the ‘Escaping polygamy’ documentary on current TV. It’s about the FLDS (Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) which basically owns Colorado City, Utah, in the USA. What an eye opener! It’s hard to believe that this abuse of women & children is allowed to go on. With men basically getting multiple wives pregnant with lots of children, this is the biggest example of systematic abuse of the welfare system combined with systematic brain washing of people since childhood.
It costs the US taxpayer 30 million a year and has now snowballed into a time bomb no politician has got the balls to address. It all legally hides under the extreme version of the Mormon church. You can access lots of info on the FLDS ‘here‘. A link to info on the current website ‘here‘. The ‘Escaping Polygamy’ documentary was 2 hours long and even covered the police who are all men of course. They are all power tripping little Hitlers with the power to enter properties and ask what people are reading. A truly scary place to visit is Colorado City, surely an embarrassment to the US government. It’s a shame it’s not embarrassing enough to make them do something about it! Where’s the petition? I’ll happily sign it! If you can watch current tv look out for the ‘Escaping Polygamy’ program.
I found this CNN bit on polygamy and the FLDS. Skip the first 30 seconds to get straight to the story.
