Everyone knows I am addicted to cult & mob documentaries.
“Keep Sweet: Pray & Obey” documents the stories of survivors of the FDLS Fundamentalist Cult and victims of the polygamist leader of the “church” Warren Jeffs.
It’s an interesting cringe documentary that exposes the victimization of the survivors of the unorthodox religion in which plural marriage is considered a VIP pass to heaven.
In this four-part series available on Netflix, the survivors share their feelings of the “church” after leaving the fundamentalist lifestyle in which the men take up as many as 30-40 wives or more, including child brides and family members.
Leader of the cult, Warren Jeffs was arrested in 2011 and is currently imprisoned at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s Louis C. Powledge Unit, near Palestine, Texas on felony charges of sexual conduct with minors, as well as two counts of rape from the previous years. He was sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years for sexually assaulting two girls though his victim count is more than likely significantly higher.
According to the TDCJ, Jeffs’ earliest parole eligibility date is July 22, 2038.
Season 2 of “Trafficked” with host Mariana van Zeller is set to premiere December 1.
In the series, the award winning journalist explores the inner workings of the global underworld’s most dangerous black markets.
In each episode, she journeys inside a different black market or trafficking network — from drugs and stolen cars to outlaw bikers and Amazon mafias — to meet the players, learn the business, and better understand the world’s multitrillion-dollar shadow economy.
The show premieres on National Geographic channel. Thankfully they sent me this tweet as a reminder to set my DVR.
