Cover story, Nov. 8, "Locked & Loaded"
In jail, Cho-mos (child molesters, accused, or convicted) are on a kill on sight list. There isn't a damn thing the jailers can do to stop it. Not saying the guy deserved being killed, but it's a given that if you're accused of being one, you're dead. End of story.
I've been told by police officers that Sim Gill only prosecutes crimes that are slam dunk cases. My mom's house was burglarized multiple times. My house was burglarized and I knew the perp. But the case didn't go past the initial report, because the officers say Gill won't prosecute them. I was told that I basically needed a confession. Prints, video, DNA were not enough. But, on the other hand, a family member was falsely accused by a psycho vindictive wife of abuse and jailed, even though she was the abuser and outweighed him by over 200 pounds and 5 inches. The cops wouldn't even listen to him, though he was the one to call 911 after she tried to kill him, and they arrested him when she played innocent victim. She tried to kill him again after he was released by the detective who said it was unfounded. She got off scot-free even after three attempts to kill him.

Online news post, Nov. 19, Guv discusses LDS church's role in drafting cannabis "compromise" legislation
And because lemmings jump off cliffs, Utah should, too.
More like Saudi Arabia.
Utah theocracy at its best.
It's not supposed to work that way.
He'd love it if Utah was a bastion of nothing but Mormons. Wake up, take a hit off that bong and drink some coffee, this is bullshit and the Mormon church has no right to interfere with voting and to try to make everyone live by their words. And no, I'm not moving, I've been here almost all my life, so I'm not going anywhere anytime soon.
I really hope he, and the state Legislature get named in the upcoming lawsuit. It is beyond time for the LDS church to get out of politics, or if they wish to continue, they need to start paying to play, taxes that is.
What he said can and will be used in a court of law. Thank you.

Everyone needs to vote them or their cookie cutter replacements out next election. Show them the power of the vote.

Yeah, OK. I grew up in Massachusetts and lived in Utah for 13 years. That's an absolute horseshit comparison.
But does their governor take orders from them in closed door meetings?
Claude Henry Smoot
Give me one example of when the Catholic church called for the governor of Massachusetts to demand the Legislature be called into special session to override the will of Massachusetts voters with a replacement bill drafted by lobbyists for the Holy See?
They do it covertly behind closed doors. The East Coast works that way. I know; I was born there ... Bottom line is: you figure it out. I already know.
I lived in Massachusetts till age 35. It simply doesn't work like that. Yes, there is a big Catholic presence, but there's also a huge Jewish community and outside influence (the mob, etc.) Utah is run by the church and for the church. There is no separation of church and state at all.
As a Catholic, I can tell you that they don't tell us how to vote during mass.
Nor mail propaganda letters with false information to manipulate their agenda.
And yet weed is totally legal in Massachusetts. Those damn priests!
Whatever. No church in my politics—end of story!
What he fails to mention, is that the church as an institution, drafted this bill.
There is a difference between having a say and having a monopoly. Hey, at least he acknowledged it.

Two wrongs don't make it right. And neither does acknowledgement.
Whatever happened to the separation of church and state? We've been lied to from the beginning.
If a religious organization wants to play in politics then by all means do so, but, you have to give up your tax exempt status and pay your taxes.
