Utah supports booting the polygamous town cops, too
Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes has filed a one-paragraph letter concurring with his counterpart in Arizona — the marshals in Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz., have to go.
Reyes' letter was filed with a federal lawsuit in Phoenix aimed at ending discrimination in the two towns. It's long been alleged the marshals are just arms of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
For years, Utah has shown an aversion to booting the entire police force in the two towns, mostly for fear of violating due process rights. Instead, Utah's police regulators have decertified marshals one at a time as evidence has accumulated.
