Thursday on AC360: Polygamist sect preparing for the end of the world?

A doomsday prophesy from jailed polygamist prophet Warren Jeffs has the attention of law enforcement officials.

“The consensus seems to be that (he’s) indicating that by the end of the year, the end of the world will be here,” said Sam Brower, a private investigator who has represented more than 100 former member of Jeffs’ Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Church.

Law enforcement is on alert and monitoring the border towns of Colorado City, Arizona and Hildale, Utah, where Jeffs’ followers live.

Tonight on AC360: Outrage over defeat of disability treaty

This week the U.S. Senate blocked a U.N. treaty aimed at protecting the rights of disabled people around the world. 125 countries have ratified it. The treaty is modeled on the American Disabilities Act, which Congress passed in 1990. However, 38 Republican senators voted against the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), leaving it five votes short of ratification.

Tonight Anderson talks with the son of the late Sen. Edward Kennedy. Ted Kennedy Jr. lost a leg to cancer when he was a child. He feels the Republican Party has turned its back on disabled Americans with this vote. “It’s a sad day for people with disabilities, and it’s a sad day for the U.S Senate,” Kennedy tells Anderson. “You ask yourself… who could be against a treaty that basically affords people with disabilities the same rights and opportunities of everyone else?” Kennedy believes several Republicans are to blame for the treaty’s demise after they spread “fiction” and “innuendo.”

Tonight on AC360: Forced child labor? Picking pecans for their polygamist prophet

Tonight on AC360: Forced child labor? Picking pecans for their polygamist prophet

For years, we've reported on the mysterious enclave of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ Latter-Day Saints near the Utah-Arizona border. We thought we've seen it all. But tonight Gary Tuchman reports on a development that raises new questions about the Church run by jailed polygamist leader Warren Jeffs.

Gary received a tip that Jeffs, from his prison cell, ordered all schools closed this week so the children could harvest pecans. Gary went to the ranch in question and found hundreds of children in the fields. As soon as he got out of his car, the children all started scattering away from him, and eventually running in the opposite direction.

Gary talked to the owner of a neighboring hog farm, who told him the child labor has gone on for a week or two over a period of years.

Producer's Notebook: Day 2 in Haiti bracing for Tropical Storm Isaac

In a short amount of time the rains from Tropical Storm Isaac will soak Haiti. As I'm writing this rain is starting to fall and clouds now cover what was a bright, sunny sky earlier this morning.

As we made our way through some of the camps yesterday many living there told us they were unaware that the storm was headed their way.
