Details from a federal discrimination lawsuit and a new set of photographs shed light on what it's like living in the polygamous communities of Hildale, Utah and Colorado City, Ariz. Testimony alleges that FLDS security regularly monitors city cameras, and photos document FLDS children engaged in forbidden activities such as bike riding and playing basketball.

On Monday at 12:15 p.m., Tribune reporter Jim Dalrymple, photographer Trent Nelson and court-appointed accountant Bruce Wisan explain the cozy relationship between the FLDS church and the government of Short Creek.
