Joy of Sects: Jackley diddles as Custer chronicles FLDS



The unholy Dakota Voice/Liberty teevee communion in Rapid City is not the only hate group in the chemical toilet being tracked by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

As South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley looks away as a favor to political allies, Charlie Najacht of the Custer County Chronicle has amassed an archive mountain and is on full tilt about the growth of the compound housing members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints near Pringle.

Even Custer County Sheriff Rick Wheeler seems on edge about having a polygamist group known for human trafficking digging in his jurisdiction.

Najacht's obsession with the cult even caught the attention of a Utah teevee station:
In South Dakota, they worry those expelled would head north, bringing the same problems to their state. “There's been building going on all through the summer and all of a sudden it stops and there's nothing and the projects were never really completed either,” Wheeler says. The construction has caused enough concern neighbors in the area have started to pack up and move out. "They're digging a huge foundation for something, now. There's speculation that it could be a temple, who knows?” Najacht says.
Host families are being sought for teen refugees:
“They are much more successful if they stay with a family,” said Jean Goode, Safety Net’s clinical Case Manager, said of the ex-FLDS teens. “They have very little information about the outside world. They were taught to be afraid of people who were not like them.”
Attorneys General in Arizona and Utah have their hands full:
At a hearing set for Tuesday before 3rd District Judge Denise Lindberg, attorneys from the Utah and Arizona attorney generals’ offices and the fiduciary appointed to manage the United Effort Plan (UEP) are expected to present a plan in which Lindberg eventually would appoint a board to manage the UEP.
Oh well, in fundamentalist red state South Dakota all women are just breedstock anyway.

I guess these folks are ok with the SD powers that be. After all, they probably don't allow gays to marry.

LK: as Brendan Johnson gears up to run for a constitutional office in the state expect him to move on this compound if Jacklow does not.
