The Way It Is | U of U computer lab attendant Joseph Amici



Law enforcement experts will speak next week at a U.S. Senate committee about FLDS communities. Critics wonder if the committee is justified in light of the legal failures surrounding recent Texas polygamy raids. City Weekly asked Joseph Amici, a University of Utah computer lab attendant, if he thought the committee was justified.

I don’t have any problems with polygamy, but as soon as there is an abusive relationship with a child then it’s no longer acceptable. A senate committee would be warranted. There needs to be a system in place to make sure these enclaves don’t just separate themselves from the rest of the United States and have no oversight over them by any legal jurisdiction. If abuse happens someone needs to know about it.
