14,898.  Mark Hofmann was a forger and shrewd observer of human behavior.  Like any good con-man, he knew part of his success manufacturing and selling fake historical documents depended on willing victims – people who wanted to believe his claims.   


Growing up Mormon, Hofmann realized he was surrounded by credulous people who were trained to trust those who presented themselves as authorities ...


From his years of poking around old documents and studying church history, Hofmann knew there were skeletons in the Mormon closet.  Authentic LDS history is far murkier than the official version.  He also knew the church was interested in acquiring potentially embarrassing documents so they could suppress them ...


So Hofmann concocted the ‘Salamander letter’, an account of Joseph Smith encountering a talking salamander that turned into an angel.  The forgery neatly connected the Smith family’s occult practices with the origins of Mormonism ...


How is it that church leaders could meet several times with Mark Hofmann and never discern the dark spirit inside him?  How could they not recognize the devil within their midst?  And how many times before had they failed at similar challenges?  How many more times would they fail? ...


What about the church’s document experts?  Well, they turned out not to be so expert.


Before Hofmann started blowing up people, the church trumpeted the Salamander letter as a marvelous, wonderful new find while carefully spinning its content.  After law enforcement forgery experts declared the Salamander letter a fake, however, the brethren had to spin their way back out without making it look like they had been duped and swindled.  Furthermore, they resisted cooperating with the investigation out of fear their ineptitude would be further exposed.


The Hofmann case was a shameful moment of ecclesiastical bungling.  I don’t imagine it’s an isolated case.  The brethren work pretty much in secret, with no checks and balances, answering to no one, except each other and the still, small voices they hear in their heads.  (Murder & Forgery & Mormons & Antiques & Salt Lake City)  Stray Mutt, board post, ‘For Newbies and Lurking TBMs – A Review of the Hofmann Case’

 

 

19,750.  Salt Lake City is the headquarters of the Mormon Church.  But it’s not as saintly as it appears.  Today it’s under siege, terrorised by a gang whose agenda is simple - to be the baddest around.  It’s a strange place – where violence and religion co-exist ... The religion of Crippin.  (Gangs US: Salt Lake City & Salt Lake City & Mormons)  Gangland s3e5: From Heaven to Hell, History 2008

 

19,751.  23rd July 1992: it was the eve of the State’s biggest celebration – Pioneer Day.  Thousands of people flooded the downtown area, eating, drinking and setting off fireworks ahead of the next day’s parade.  Hidden amongst the crowd were members of the Crips … Mr C noticed Crips from a rival set ...   Within seconds the festive atmosphere turned to terror.  Mr C pulled the gun from his trousers.  (Gangs US: Salt Lake City & Salt Lake City & Mormons & Crips)  ibid.

 

19,752.  The city is perceived to be white, conservative, squeaky clean, and the last place you would expect to find gangs.  But close to three hundred gangs call this valley town home ... Among them are an estimated one thousand Crips, divided into numerous smaller sects.  The gangs are motivated by one thing – reputation.  (Gangs US: Salt Lake City & Salt Lake City & Mormons & Crips)  ibid.
