Unbelievable! I cannot believe that someone would tell such a fabricated story. It make me mad as hell. I have family who has served more than once over seas and it is disturbing to know that Elizabeth would have the nerve to do such a thing. And for her to look as sloppy in her picture. The men and women who serve in the military are much more well kept with their uniforms anyway. SHAME ON YOU ELIZABETH! I HOPE YOU SERVE TIME FOR THIS!!!!!!!!!!

that what people are like in cass lake.... corrupt. no good or anything positive. they all like to lie, cheat, and steal. I don't mean to offend anybody or disrespect anyone in any form, way, direction, shape, meaning but its the solid truth.

how would I know and who do I think I am to say this? I lived in cass lake all my life. I lived in the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe reservation all my life. Personal experience and just by living on the rez and cass lake all my life. I learned that a majority of the people in Cass Lake and Leech Lake are no good or anything decent. They're all mean, rude, and disrespectful as this Elizabeth Mackenzie is.

its a damn shame that this kind of fraud/crime just had to be persecuted from SOMEONE from CASS LAKE! It just makes us Cass Lake Indians/Leech Lake NDNs look even more bad with that Lost Youth of Leech Lake article from the SAME source. Star Tribune.

I must say. what a strong disrespectful thing to do to the US amry service. I feel it strongly disrespects the Indigenous woman who are currently serving or have served in the army/military service including the VERY FIRST Indigenous woman to die in combat of the Iraq War. Lori Piestewa.

But someone from Cass Lake or Leech Lake would do something like this because we're mental and retarded like that. nah. Just saying that but this is nothing new. Remember the Lost Youth of Leech Lake article.... heavy stuff there now.

Whoops. I read too fast to miss a major fact. she's not indigenous or Star Tribune says she's NOT indigenous. Let me correct my last post there.

Despite this fraud not being enrolled in Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe or being Indigenous.
It doesn't matter what skin color you are and if your from Cass Lake. it doesn't matter where you're from I guess. Anybody can do something so disrespectful and stupid like Elizabeth Mackenzie but I what I mean to say is that she's from Cass Lake.

you see how dumb and disrespectful people are from Cass Lake?? NOT all of Cass Lake people are dumb or disrespectful. but blah. its lame!
