This is total bull... The public has a right to know what the h*ll is going on in and around the communities they live in. West River Rats, East River Rats... I say let the extermination begin.

And yes... I now am hearing the same thing. A dismembered body found by the old district building, outside of Veblem... outskirts of Sisseton. Such a freaking joke that we let these punks take these small communities and turn them in to their little turf war. We should bring in the big dawgs.. the real gangs, and show these punks whats up.

Never in a million years would I of thought that acts like these would be going down pretty much in our backyards.. things are actually hitting home these days... Its just said that I know my kids wont have the same wonderful experience in the commuinity that I grew up in, as I did... WE NEED TO STOP THIS VIOLENCE! I just dont understand how someone could honestly harm another humanbeing.. let alone with the intentions of killing them.. who are these people? where did they come from? who created these people?

we need to stop this! WE NEED OUR OFFICIALS TO STOP THIS! I am willing to do whatever it takes to end these acts, and I hope the rest of my community is too.. I want our communities back!

They have found the guy, cut up and buried 7 miles south of Veblen by the by the old heipa district... you just never here about it because it's covered up. Just like the details of the hit and run of a 16 year old ... NOT just a hit and run... two more bodies have been found since the search for this man has taken place... one that ended up to be a murder of a boyfriend.. they just happened upon that body in the A.J. Lufkins search, and one found off exit 242 in the slough off the interstate last week. That's "5" bodies, since the teacher was found in the tree belt next to the high school THIS spring along with the hit and run (that was not a hit and run but an intentional beating and the body dumped and run over numerous times to try to cover it up). This is a small town, but because of the fed card that gets thrown, do to the fact that it is a reservation, we are not given the facts. When they do release information, it is usually just to shut everyone up, and not the truth about what happened. Hire some real law enforcement and not good old boys that have NO criminal law education behind them. I can't believe the only requirement in SD is that you are 21 ... and then they train you in a quick course... and send you on random learning sessions.. as you botch up cases and learn from experience, we all suffer. This is soooo bad. There also have also been horrible beatings with baseball bats recently. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. This all needs to be dealt with in the public eye. The public can be a crucial part of deterring crime if they are up on what is going on... not after the fact.

Now in the Watertown PO, it is the Police's fault and it is all racial. Well lets take a look into who is involved with the issues!!! How can it be racial profiling on behalf of the cops when all involved are native!!! I can guarantee that if a white person was involved they would be arrested just like anyone else! Oh, sure, natives are being arrested, however, when it is only natives involved, there are only natives to arrest. GET IT?! What does this community want? The cops to turn their backs everytime a native is involved? That would be wrong too, then they would say the cops don't care because it is a native. Either way the cops are put behind the eight ball in whatever they do. Make up your mind Sisseton, how do you want it. It really doesn't matter what the cops do, no one is getting prosecuted by the states attorney anyway, so it really makes no difference. Why should the cops bother to confront these punks with bats and put themselves at risk when everyone B****'s that they aren't doing their jobs. Remember, if it is you that has to confront the punks with bats(or guns, because, YES there are guns out there), you'd be pretty happy if a cop showed up to help.
Anything goes

WHY should they confront these punks with bats and guns??? BECAUSE that is what they took an oath to do. To protect and serve.. WHAT do we want?? We want answers... to questions...from THEM. Not this hush, hush b*llcrap. I honestly believe that the lack of intensity surrounding the local police is do to the fact that it is less expensive for them to let the feds do it, and because of the frustration they have had, and the lack of cooperation they get when trying to deal with cases where the natives run and hide on federal land...Indian land...and they cannot touch them, their hands being tied. They are all to blame... everyone of them that views the taking of a human life as less than a top priority. It swings both ways. The taking of life should not have a color attached to it. If you took the job to serve.. serve. You can't choose your crime of desire.

local law enforcement need to adopt the policy towards these gangs of run em down, gun em down, I include all the law enforcement, this should be the Native community's #1 priorty as it is the biggest threat to the youth of their tribe. and it goes back to the parents . .you know if your son or daughter is straying, stand up and take control. . if your son is driving around with seemingly a endless supply of gasoline and a 1000 dollar stereo that shakes the walls of your house at all hours, it reflects on you and your name. . stand up put your foot where it will do some good. . .

Absolutely NOT hear say. It is happening. You just don't hear about it because they do not have to report to the media. The FBI and DCI have been here for a couple weeks working on this... I know this because I was told straight from the horses mouth... one of our finest (sarcasm) All the other things I state are fact... from relatives of the victims.

These are all real good posts but do ANY OF U know what's becoming of the Mr.Lufkins Case? I hear a lot of murders have been take place on the rez is this true or hearsay?WHY HASN'T this young man (AJ Lufkins) been found YET?????The chairman has made it very clear that its a money issue!NOT GOOD! Had this been a White boy it probably would have been broadcasted all over CNN what makes their lives more important then ours (Hopeful NdN"Human Beings") This saddens my Chante much knowing he was involved in a fight at the Legion. I'm sure there were plenty of witnesses now wouldn't those involved in this fight be prime suspects??? I see the $$$ award has risen but prior to this wasn't AJ's family having food sales doing whatever they could possible to raise enough money to search appropriatley for him. I'm sure the Lufkin's haven't had a decent nights rest since his dissapperance. THIS NEEDS MORE IMMEDIATE ATTENTION MORE MEDIA ATTENTION!!!!!!! Indicating it could possibly go cold is ridiculous the FBI should be following ever lead they get doesn't matter if it's hear say or not!FOLLOW THROUGH! I think the public deserve to know if there are bodies being found on this search so I hear. I just want some answers to what's true and what's not since the NEWS ain't keeping US updated!
