During Utah’s Black Hawk War 1865-1868 there were some instances of whites murdering Indians, and these people were never brought to trial. In 1866, Thomas Jose was brought to trial for killing an Indian, and he was convicted for murder. Even though his punishment was relatively mild, the justice system was made to work in defense of the Indians.
