Warren Jeffs convicted of child sexual assault

That Warren Jeffs was convicted today in Texas for child sexual assault is good news.  When someone tweeted that Terry Goddard deserves some credit for having investigated Jeffs, it reminded me that there is another unsung hero.

Journalist John Dougherty, who in 2010 ran for the Democratic nomination for US Senate in Arizona, spent a tremendous amount of time investigating Jeffs and his polygamist community on the Arizona/Utah border.

Dougherty is a hero.

    Many court documents and news events prove that Jehovah's Witnesses suppress evidence when a child comes forward with allegations of molestation within the congregation.Whenever you surrender your logic and reason to anyone who asks you to trust them because they know better it's possibly a cult.
    If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck....

  2. Hi Danny,

    I understand your concern. I'm aware that child abuse is not limited to Warren Jeffs' group. Maybe someone reading this blog and your comment will be able to investigate your situation.
