Disturbing new numbers of sex crimes, Wow !! how about looking back when you as a community allow the sale of alcohol,I am currently married to a woman that was sexually abused by her uncle John for many years, and nothing done to the fine citizen for his actions, he now walks the streets a free child molester, you as a community allow the sale of alcohol, interesting !! I'll bet If we look
99.9 % of the sex crimes would be alcohol related and 99.9 % of your other crimes have addiction in there some where as well.
Keep the alcohol in your village and you will continue to have a rise in
sex crimes,Children that are violated in such a way never recover in spirit, My wifes mother once told me it was a long time ago let by gones be by gones, real nice !! I hope some day to sit and have a cup of coffee with uncle John and talk about what he did to my wife and her sister. Good luck and think about you as a community and your sales of alcohol I'll bet your crimes would fall.

Very seldom is something "always" the facto but alcohol is a big factor in these Alaska communities.
