The FLDS Fake Photo Fiasco
The photographer of this award-winning photo, Justin Cook, is understandably protective of his work, and for that reason I am posting only a small thumbnail that links directly to Mr. Cook’s website and portfolio. Please do see his work, as he is very talented.
Attached to the FLDS defense Motion to Suppress was this photo of a uniformed, armed officer and a little boy. It was represented as being a photo taken during the YFZ Rescue. In the hearing today, Assistant Attorney General Eric Nichols had a Perry Mason moment (as reported by Texas Blues Man) when he revealed to the Court that the picture the FLDS lawyers were trying to pass off as YFZ-related …. was actually a picture taken at a SWAT raid/event a couple of years ago in Durham, NC. It had nothing to do with the YFZ Ranch. How it came into the hands of the lawyers and attached to a legal pleading is unclear.
For some reason the AP and Trib are not reporting this. Go figure.
