Yes, the twin towns of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz., have a police force, but not one outsiders seem to want to rely upon.
That’s because the town marshals are believed to be loyal to imprisoned Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints leader Warren Jeffs. So the state of Arizona has been paying for Mohave County sheriff’s deputies to patrol the towns, too.
So what to do? Should Arizona taxpayers keep paying to police Hildale and Colorado City?
