    Actually it is no surprise to anyone. As almost everybody knows civil rights violations fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government and not the state.

    Sounds like Utah's version of the Taliban and it's government's looking the other way. No surprise to me that this man is taking his complaints to the Federal level...no one's listening here! Unfortunately, many outside of Utah lump the rest of us into his evil and craziness....rightfully so since our male-dominated state representatives are afraid to do anything about it.This is where political motives and not doing the right thing gives us a black eye. Shame on Utah!

    There are none so blind as those who will not see, but I hope this is the beginning of putting an end the mess that has been going on within the FLDS for many years.

    Wouldn't it be proper to have a federal office opened in both of the cities? Also, cannot each state rescind any law enforcement privledges to the cities?

    I see that Arizona is doing something but what about Utah? where is Utah in this? Clearly this situation is way out of control and the states and the feds need to shine the light of justice in this dark place.
