Tom Horne Attempting to Disband Police Force in Polygamist Towns

Attorney General Tom Horne is asking a federal judge to disband the police department that patrols the polygamist towns of Colorado City and Hildale, on the Arizona-Utah border.

Horne, in addition to all of his extracurricular activities, has been a long-time critic of the "marshal's office," which he claims operates "as the de facto law enforcement arm of the FLDS Church."
