yeah, gangs are just a bunch of no good kids trying to be known for something in this world and this is the easiest thing to do. Many of the gangs in Rosebud are a bunch of half breeds with white skin that claim to be native but they are a bunch of white boyz. On the red stuff that they all claim in Rosebud. They are just softy's that need to gang people because they can't fight one on one,its terrifying to them. I mean if i was with a bunch of people beating up one person i guess i would be a tough guy too.

I am enrolled in Rosebud Sioux Tribe, and it's true, for kids to be in gangs, it's not wrong, i think its an embarresing! Half-breeds walking around saying that they are "N8IVE" It's wrong, totally wrong. We should do something with our lives instead of just hanging around the reservation. I'm not trying to diss the rez, but it's true. The world needs to know our story, and we need a breakthrough in this world. SO YEAH!:)

Yes, I knew the gurls too they were cool. I didn't know that it was like that. I didn't really hang out with them but, they were around town. I thought they were friends.IDK
I'm in no gang I don't claim anything. I think that there are just to much things happening there. I been gone for 3 months and so much bad stuff happening. Maybe, people think it is cool it's not. come on now it's making rosebud and it's surrounding area look bad and I think that needs to change. cause really there is a very good side of it to. Only if you knew!!!!

I am sick and of every body pointing this out as being gang related. Maybe it was, on the other half, in which she blaims on diong it to be in a gang which she already was so there was no point. Why would sombody do this? They were friends, she trusted them. I know it was jelousy, Laura was strong, beautiful, caring, sweet and so much more.
I miss her every single day, I cry for her every single nicgh and dreem of her every time I sleep. I love her, I miss her.This i bad karma, if the get away with it as children, paybakz a btch!.

My lil cuz who i love and miss so much people should know the truth so im"a put a shout out for u gurl.Laura was down but she aint no gangster,in rosebud everybody goes through a gang stage but this was a grudge that her murderers held on her for two years and one she trusted and she stabed lafaye in the back literaly!No laughing matter but in the court room one of the murderers laughed in the end because the were only tried as juveniles because of the tribe interfering they will be out and with their families but i hope sum one out there can make a change for them to get retried as adults please help if you have the ability to because they took her life away but they can't give it back.much love lafaye hope to see you soon someday!

Just last night there was another stabbing in rosebud two boys were stabed by one of lauras murderers uncles see because lauras murderer"Jamie Leader Charge"pretty much got away with murder because she'll be out when shes 20 her family now is acting as if its ok to stab someone to death just cause your mad and its not.One of the boys died last night at the rosebud hospital.So I must ask what kind of a message did our tribe send when they voted for these to murderers "Jamie Leader Charge" and Liz Thunder Huak" to be tried as juveniles for an adult crime while they were in their right state of minds no drugs no alchol.I hope this proves to the council that these gurls should be retried as adults and pay for what they did cause they can never bring Lafaye hom to her family.

my neice Luara was not a gang member she was a very sweet girl who loved childern and now because of two very visious girls she will never enjoy her own childern or her neices and nephews who she cared for and loved very much we really need to do something about these girls and boys who think that they are gang members the lakota people which we are do not believe in gangs or murder so somebody out there please help us to get rid of all this violence and unsloved murders if a 14 and 15 year old can commit an act of violence as they did knowing what they did with no alchol or drugs then they should've been tried as adults.Me and my family love and miss laura everyday.

Its sad to see and hear about all this violence happening not just on the rosebud reservation but on other reservations. wish everyone "including adults" would grow up and stop calling eachother half breeds and weak. to me if you have the blood of our ancestors does not matter how small, we are all connected in many ways GROW UP!!! its sad and pathetic to know our people fight and drink do drugs kill themselve and hurt eachother. when will it stop what can you do to make it better what can we do to make sure our children keep the ways of our ancestors beliefs going on for other generations to come before it gone!!!!and History!!!COME ON!!!!!stop blaming everyone else
