There have been many heinous acts committed in God's name and still more evil deeds done in accordance with the wishes of false prophets. Warren Jeffs, leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints -- a twisted, outcast branch of Mormonism -- created a community that fosters systemic child abuse in the form of underage polygamy and habitual, almost ritualistic sexual molestation.
Warren Jeffs' reign went unchecked for years until private investigator Sam Brower was brought onto the case tangentially, then never let it go, as the further he dug, the worse he exposed. Mr. Brower recounts his horrific findings and chronicles his efforts and the wavering efforts of local and national law enforcement agencies to crack down on this "cult" in his shocking and searing book, Prophet's Prey.
Today, Sam joins me at The High Bar -- though he won't drink due to his own Mormon convictions -- to raise a toast to and raise the bar for... child protection.
