Bill to Get Rid of FLDS-Lovin' Cops in Colorado City Back Again

A bill that would disband the police force in Colorado City is back again this legislative session.

For whatever reasons, legislators ended up killing almost the same exact bill last session, and the allegedly corrupt "marshals" on the Utah/Arizona border -- whom Attorney General Tom Horne contends are still loyal to child rapist Warren Jeffs and his Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints -- still have policing power.
