As prosecutors assemble themselves to go after religious relics, one can only wonder why they allow the laws to apply to one individual, yet avoid others all together. It is of course due to allegedly being convicted and charged for a crime that you may or may not have actually committed. When presented to followers of the court system, support for charges are usually arranged by importance of activity as they relate to being sentenced. Sexually explicit actions usually take precedence in the court system as prosecutors go all out to secure a conviction after the crime has been committed.
When preparing to go after someone as disturbed as Polygamist Warren Jeffs, the punishable crime can only be aggravated by the fact that he claims to be a prophet. When personal behavior turns into sexual abuse of children, and evidence can be introduced to show that the participant is a demented individual, the results from a jury will usually be conclusive.
After being represented by legal defense that are appointed by the courts, the position is simple, the perverted and corrupted should face the music to the fullest, where the recognized authority is pushing for convictions. When small children are being victimized, the community is usually 100% behind the prosecutor when their office is going after a pedophile, regardless of whether or not the case ends up going the wrong way. The question is this, how should we determine whether the case is legit, or whether we are making it stick just because we think that it is.
