Polygamy in Arizona








New Times staff writer John Dougherty spent months examining the secretive, isolated polygamist Mormon communities that straddle the Arizona-Utah border north of the Grand Canyon. He found a culture of sexual abuse and psychological torment as well as the unlawful expenditure of millions of dollars in public money. And it's all been going on with little attempt by the state to help the residents or put an end to the fraud.

Go Edgar!! Love your posts, TRAVIS was murdered and LDS church knows more about it then Jodi Arias. We are covered in a FOG of HATE. That's what they want. So, we are blinded by hate, we can't see. 

Peace AZ! -We The People are watching all off you.

   And, yet, the crook, DA, panders to, the,  Mormons'   blood oath, blood atonement, killing, of, Travis Alexander, by, the fraudulent, prosecution, of, Jodi, Arias...  working, both sides of the street; just like any other, conniving, lizard at law...  Read "The God Makers," for, the exacting, suicide; "solemn rituals,"  of, Anderson, and, Alexander...   Edgaer...

@edgarlongenecker Are you out of your mind? Travis' slaughter had nothing to do with the LDS church and everything to do with the premeditated plan of Jodi Arias - a grotesquely jealous, egomaniacal, narcissistic psychopath consumed by rage stemming from the fact that Travis with whom she was OBSESSED had no interest in her beside using her - a very willing participant I might add - to satiate his libido.

The only blame which the mormon church has in this mess is the ridiculously antiquated rule concerning pre-marital sex - in which sexually mature adults are threatened with hell and damnation if they dare to indulge in sexual activities - no matter how much they may love their partner - just because they are not yet married!

I'd love to know how on earth you reached your insane conclusion that Ms Arias was fraudulently accused/convicted of premeditated murder - especially as she actually confessed to killing him - albeit with a web of lies concerning non-existent abuse, paedophilia accusations and a self-defence claim!

@Milodevenus @edgarlongenecker Nio, I'm out of your mind, thank you; and, just finished a half hour proof, of the conspiracy, against a girl, shuffled off the track by the thought police...  If you had a clue about the criminality of the lizards at law, mob, you could explain, how, an arrest was based upon irrefutable evidence, then, twisted to a 180 about face, disproving the initial lies at law, by recanting, the soap opera, to try the noncase, after quitting the prostitutorial collusion by the thyree stooges.   Were the two governors notified, of the abandonment of the charges, for which the extradition was scammed ?  And, by what soap opera, logic, can the prostitutor, be right, no matter what contradictory lies at law, he floats...  ???   Edgrrr

@Milodevenus @edgarlongenecker   Heart plunge stab, and, ear to ear throat slice, is the forensics' noted, cause of death. Shooting and stabbing a dead body, to set Jodi, up for the blood atonement ritual, is hardly, butchering, Travis... and, is a feigned hysterics, ruse to pretend to indicate that the precision kill, and the haphazard stabfest were done at the one minute, fortysix seconds, claimed, perjury of process, and is, as simpleminded as the three stooges, thinking they'd get away with, concealment of exculpatory evidence, disproving their conspiracy to hide proof that, without shooting Travis, first, as originally claimed, there's no way, Jodi, could have overpowered, Travis.   Also, there was a bigfooted, man at the kill scene, as evidenced by the large bootprint, in wet blood, who, likely was the killer; and, did not, call the police. In addition, the brass ejected shell, landed upon a dried blood island; no longer a puddle, proving tyhe gunshot was last, as were the bloodless, stabbings; proving a four or fivde day lapse, between, the perjured claim of 1.46 seconds, as lied, to get an interstate kidnapping under color of law,  extradition.   Then there's the confession that the lies at law, needed a format reversal, because the three stooges, perjuries, were too lame to take to court, an d, after two years of their lies at law, and, without permission, from the two governors, whose rubberstamp approval, was contingent upon the lies at law, then, pretended, while the three stooges, concealed forensics proof that Jodi, never fired a gun, and the three stooges, concealed the fact that there were no gunpowder particulates in the combined blood handprint, and, the four or five day time it took for the blood to dry....   Edgrrr...  Much more; read "The God Makers," for the precision kill, ritual, and, the significance of dragging a bleeding body to the shower, as an act of compassion, not, cruelty...   .  

edgarlongenecker
edgarlongenecker

@Milodevenus @edgarlongenecker   And, if there were no three stooges conspiracy to conceal the fact, they proved, Jodi, never fired a gun, then, how did she get the advantage with which to do the precision kill, and, the stabfest, and, dry the blood, all, in one minute, fortysix seconds; which the three stooges knew from day one, and, concealed to get extradition, at law, by, perjury of process ???   If not, so, then why the reversal of prostitutorial format, after their soap opera, was disproven, as I proved even to the lizards at law, that they had concealed exculpatory evidence, and the morons, admitted it, to reverse the soap opera, to continue as if, their repudiation of their own lies at law, no longer, were hidden; so, they reversed them as if, that's not a confession of prosecutorial misconduct; called, perjury of process...  And, of course, the "defense," and the braindead judge, let the three stooges, slide, as if, perjury of process, is a permissable, antic in lieyers,' bags of tricks.   As to Joodis,' "confession," hiow is it that she was such a socalled liar, yet, you geniuses, accept whatever she says as truth.   if, it's what you want to hear ???   As for your defense of blood atonement, do note, the admonitions of Bringem Young Brighamist" ... "We would not kill a man, except out of love, to save his eternal soul," and, "Is there a man among us who would not kill his brother, tio save his eternal soul ???"... and do note, no reversal of that format, by the LSD "church," corporation.... Have the Governors been notified, to also reverse the con, accept the perjury of process,  or , rescind, the warrant...???   Edgrrr...

@Milodevenus @edgarlongenecker Has the Bishop, come forward to tell us, who, ratted Travis out to the Bishop, and, of the perversions known to make, Travis, allegedly, ashamed, until, he got carnal again; while he gurued anything he could; with no loyalty to anyone...???   Did Travis think, Jodi, did it, and why the X-rated pictures, if not to prove it...???   Did Travis get trapped between his delusions of piety, or, his bigger than life, perversions...???   Why, hasn't the latterday saints, repudiated their suicide ritual rites, by now; 180 years later, and, no doubt still ongoing, by badgering their misfits, into proving their piety, by martyrdom, and, their accompanying to  a thousand person wake...???    And, then there are the Stepford Wives, seeing what happens when the "church," abandons them, and, forces the lizards at law, to do their killing for them...   You say the church is innocent, by their concealments...???   You claim, King Alexander, was not a paedophile...???   Then, you better, get up to date, on your soap opera....   thousands of computer proofs; should suit, even you....  And, now, we know why the prostitutor had a cow, over his computor concealment, of eight months, then, snivelling that the defense needed a week, to find, what he concealed... now, discovered..... refuting your con that Travis was a saint..... Edgrrr...

@Milodevenus   The fact that controversies exist, constitutes, reasonable doubt.....   End of story; non case, closed...   Edgrrr...

edgarlongenecker
edgarlongenecker

@Milodevenus   Do note, that, there's no lucid comment, to refute the criminalities at law, in Wonderland, Arizona.   Over a dozen gun home invasions since Jodi was locked up, and, couldn't have donev them, either...  How many were .25 caliber guns, and, how many ballistics matches, were the same actual gun...???    Edgrrr... Free Jodi, and, imprison the three stooges....

edgarlongenecker
edgarlongenecker

@Milodevenus   And, do note that the grandfathers,' gun, had, different bullets than the after death, shooting gun had...  and, ask yourselves, whatwith such planning, why,  Jodi would point to herself, after, claiming the same caliber gun, was stolen; tying her to that claim...as well...???   Nobody has proven her, that, stupid....   Edgrrr...  

edgarlongenecker
edgarlongenecker

@Milodevenus   Why have none of these proofs, been concealed from the process, if, they're all not in on it ???   Why in the middle of a trial, would the socalled defense be notified of a two million dollar bribe, and call it legal fees...???    Edgrrr...  

edgarlongenecker
edgarlongenecker

@Milodevenus    Why hasn't the judge, voided the verdict, because, of abandonment of the process, claims by which, she was arrested; and, no followup arrest for the opposite, then rescinded...???   She was tried, for an abandoned, soap opera....   under color of law....   Edgrrr...
