Although the FDLS compound is only 25 miles away from where Warren Jeffs was found guilty of sexually assaulting minors, many are wondering if this is the tipping point for the FDLS.
Some believe his incarceration will serve as a deterrent to this type of behavior and that is why woman on the ranch were instructed not to watch the press coverage of the case. Since their leader has been taken down and more importantly they see he was taken down because he abused children in the name of religious beliefs surely it will open their eyes.
Others however think the FDLS will remain strong saying they have begun to branch out and break into smaller groups living in separate properties to avoid what happened at the YFZ Ranch raid in 2008. Now they have at least seven little branches in Colorado rather than being in one large compound outmaneuvering everyone, remaining always one step ahead of the authorities.
One thing remains the same, something must be done about a group of people that water board, smother and even have drowned deformed babies. It is up to law enforcement to step in and stop this.
