1. Cartels have targeted this group in the past, kidnapping one, killing two others. Despite that

one was sick and evil, these women and children were victims, likely intentionally killed as the community has spoken out against the cartels, and yes, even armed themselves against them though not these victims. They have had no help in their stance.

Yes, they broke with mainstream Mormonism to,practice polygamy. Many now are monogamous.

Their purported “violent and dicey history,” any Romney association, and unorthodox ways are media side-shows. Babies were killed, burned to death in a car explosion caused by a drug cartel.

One child walked 14 miles to get help after what he had seen.

Mainly members of the Langford family were killed.

This NYT story seems less lurid, more respectful of these victims of cartel violence, as goes to the point at hand:
