    More than half of the police officers in a US town have more than one wife

    Polygamy rife among town's cops

    More than half of the police officers in a US town have more than one wife, an investigation has revealed.

    The eight month investigation into police polygamy in Hildade, Utah, was ordered by Attorney General Mark Shurtleff.

    He told the Salt Lake Tribune: "Hildale has 13 officers who are certified by Utah, seven by our records are polygamists."

    But Shurtleff admitted that none of the seven officers would face criminal charges: "We just don't have the resources to start charging bigamy," he told the paper.

    The mayor of Hildale, David Zitter, callied the investigation "a nuisance" and accused Shurtleff of making "a direct assault on polygamy".

    "I don't know how you can see it any other way," he said.

    The population of Hildale is a stronghold of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, which practices polygamy.

    Odd

    Seems more likely that they live in "Stepford."

    Not so odd among the "fundamentalist Mormons" especially in Southern Utah, not to be confused with the actual "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints" which does not condone polygamy since the 1800's.
