How does the state of Arizona
Arizona(air-i'-ZON-u')

The State of Arizona comprises the extreme south-western portion of the United States. It is bounded on the north by Utah, on the east by New Mexico, on the south by Mexico, and on the west by California and Nevada.

government ignore what is going on in Colorado City? It's time the children there learned the truth about what's going on outside their captive community.

The short answer would probably be: Because no person or group has made enough noise.

While the idea of polygamy is clearly illegal, I am not against it. That is not to say that I would participate -- I have no interest, and I don't believe it to be stable. But I think consenting adults should be allowed to do whatever they want as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.

That being said, this actually goes much deeper in Colorado City (and probably other polygamous communities) where children are forced into marriages and not allowed to leave. These are not just adults, and they are clearly not consenting, so I do believe that the community should be engaged by law enforcement to have the practice stopped.

<It's time the children there learned the truth about what's going on outside their captive community.>

I agree.. and I really don't know why nothing has happened, other than what I mentioned above.. not enough noise has been made about it.

Nick - I just left a message on the site about property in Colorado City.

Are they exclusive of new people?

And I agree with you last post.

I've not spent any amount of time in Colorado City, so I don't know what the town's mentality is as far as newcomers. I don't think there's any written rule that says that the town is only open to polygamists, as polygamy is illegal, this would raise all sorts of issues.

But once arriving, I don't know what the environment would be if they feel you don't "belong." You'd probably have to spend some time there, or talk to someone that has, to find out. Perhaps someone from Colorado City will show up in the forums :-).

Oh okay, well thanks anyways :-) I can't find any realty sites for Colorado City unfortunately. Anybody been there? I need honest opinions - just looking for a pleasant town.
