A decision should be made by May this year about whether Seth Jeffs’ request for a huge increase in water for the FLDS compound in Pringle, South Dakota, will be granted.
The state’s Attorney General says he is keeping a close eye on the community. However, considering the secrecy of this group, it’s unlikely that he will be able to successfully monitor its activities. For law enforcement seriously interested in the welfare of FLDS children, using the anti polygamy laws that exist in most states would provide at least a foot in the door to watch for child safety.
Some believe that the Pringle community is gearing up to take the elite from the FLDS. There are reports of large amounts of gravel and lumber being moved in. We shall have to wait and see what happens, but we sincerely hope that this community won’t duplicate the secret abuses of its counterpart in Texas.
