    The U.S. Government has no taste to do a massive investigation of what happens in these communities because right-wing groups get all up in arms about a crackdown on religious groups.
    It has nothing to do with right-wing groups and the U.S. government. It has way more to do with the state of Utah, and the fact that almost all the top officials there are LDS. And even though the FLDS and other extremist branches broke off from the mainstream Mormon church decades ago, there's still a hesitancy to go after them because of the entangled history of Mormonism.

    There's also the matter that, for example, in Short Creek (Hildale and Colorado City) all the people in charge that should be protecting children - such as teachers, school officials, police officers, etc. - are almost FLDS themselves, and defer to the prophet. Elissa Jessop Wall, one of Jeffs' victims who fled Short Creek, wrote an interesting book a few years ago about growing up in Short Creek. She knew that no matter what happened, she could never go to a cop, for example. The police force there is FLDS and would just return women and children to their abusive situations because the man is considered the spiritual, moral and financial head of the family.

    I remember that Jeffs' conviction in Utah was reversed on appeal by the Utah Supreme Court because of supposed faulty instructions to the jury. From what I've read of the finding, it seems arguable.

    However, I still maintain that offenses by religious authorities have been underestimated and not pursued diligently (at both the local and federal level) because of sensitivity to "religious freedoms". It looks to me like there are plenty of people (especially males that have been kicked out and are disaffected/no longer in the spell of church elders) who would provide enough evidence to launch an investigation and seize evidence (similar to what was done in Texas).

    Warren Jeffs Sentenced to Life in Prison

    Nearly a week after he was convicted of two counts of child sexual abuse, polygamist leader Warren Jeffs was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday.

    Jeffs, 55, was characteristically silent as the San Angelo, Texas, jury's verdict was read, reports the Associated Press.

    According to prosecutors, Jeffs engaged in sexual abuse with two girls ages 12 and 14. A key piece of evidence against him was an audio recording of Jeffs having sex with the 12-year-old.

    The trial turned into a spectacle when Jeffs decided to represent himself in court. He said he was "at peace" at last week's summation following his conviction.

    Jeffs considers himself the prophet and leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, an offshoot banned by the Mormons, which requires men to have three wives to be admitted to heaven.

    How he's going to be spending his time.

    Jeffs' jail pleasures

    EL DORADO, Texas — Warren Jeffs has been keeping busy in jail.

    According to one of his former jailers, the convicted child rapist masturbated more or less continuously while in custody. Rick Bradley, a guard at the county jail where Jeffs was kept in the weeks prior to his trial, told The Daily that the 55-year-old seemed to be suffering from sexual withdrawal and pleasured himself “a lot.” What does that mean, exactly — five times a day? More, Bradley said.

    Fifteen times? “Sometimes more than that,” he told The Daily.

    The guard said that the prisoner — who was not permitted conjugal visits — often played solo in full view of his guards. “We could see him,” Bradley said.

    When his trial began late last month, Jeffs was transferred to a facility in the nearby town of San Angelo.

    The lurid details of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints leader’s predatory sexual practices were revealed in his trial, which ended in a conviction and a sentence of life plus 20 years. Jeffs had dozens of under-aged wives whom he trained to meet his sexual needs. He also raped a 5-year-old boy, according to court testimony.

    But he preached a hard line against masturbation.

    One of Jeffs’ former students, Ezra Draper, testified that the cult leader told him that God was “offended” by masturbation.

    Jeffs maintained his vigorous onanistic pace despite eating barely “enough to stay alive,” said Bradley. The self-proclaimed messiah rejected the jail’s standard meals, choosing to consume only small quantities of bread, water, and peanut-butter crackers.

    Yes, because nothing gets you off more than being locked in a cell awaiting trail for sex crimes against minors.

    Fuck him.

    Source: Polygamist leader Jeffs in coma in Texas hospital

    By the CNN Wire Staff
    August 29, 2011 -- Updated 2301 GMT (0701 HKT)


    Polygamist sect leader Warren Jeffs was convicted on two counts of sexual assault on a child.


    STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    • NEW: Jeffs is in a coma, according to a source familiar with his medical condition
    • Jeffs has not been eating, a prison official and Jeffs' attorney say
    • Jeffs was sentenced to life plus 20 years for sexual assault
    (CNN) -- Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs was in critical condition in a Texas hospital Monday after falling ill during a fast, a state prison official and his attorney said.
    A source familiar with Jeff's medical condition told CNN Monday that Jeffs was in a coma. The source did not provide further details.
    The leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a breakaway Mormon sect, was sentenced early this month to life in prison plus 20 years for sexual assault. Jason Clark, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, said Jeffs was sent to a hospital in Tyler on Sunday night and was in critical but stable condition Monday.
    "He was not eating or drinking enough fluids and also has some other medical conditions," Clark told CNN. He would not elaborate, citing inmate privacy rules.

    RELATED TOPICSJeffs told officials at the Powledge prison unit that he was not on a hunger strike, but had been "fasting," Clark said. His attorney, Emily Detoto, confirmed Jeffs' condition and that he had not been eating.
    On August 4, Jeffs was found guilty of the aggravated sexual assaults of a 12-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl he claimed were his "spiritual wives." He will have to spend at least 45 years in prison before being eligible for release, state prosecutors said.
    Jeffs was also found guilty of two counts of rape by accomplice in Utah in 2007 and was sentenced to 10 years to life in prison there.
    His church is believed to have about 10,000 followers, and the practice of polygamy -- which the mainstream Mormon Church renounced more than a century ago -- is part of the sect's doctrine.

    It is hard to believe 3 days without food could take you down that fast. The fucker is taking the easy way out. He needs to actually suffer.
