As an ex-South Dakotaian I feel like most the lil hoodlums thinking they are lil gangsters, lock him up!! If this guy has no respect for the law, then you know he has no respect for anyone/thing else!! Make an example out of this one!!!!

Whatever happened to a fair trial before we hang the guilty and release the innocent?
If found guilty, then be all means, exercise the law to all fair extent. Otherwise, let the innocent return to society with all privileges intact.

Yes, what did happen to a fair trial. Let's hear all the facts before we make any judgement. He is innocent until PROVEN guilty. And Texan in OK, you wouldn't know if Eagle Butte would be a better place to live since you obviously DON'T live there so you wouldn't know. I for one will wait for all the facts to come out before trying to make any comments.

i do know both of these persons and they are guilty of assaulting people with nothing being done about it. Yes, eagle butte is a bit better now that they are where they belong, but there are many more here, who may now realize, that if you do the crime then you WILL do the time

"There are many nore here, who maynow realize that if you do the crime then you WILL do the time"?!?

Now that's the funniest thing I've herad all year. Crap, 1 of these guys wondered around the Reservation for a couple of weeks and then didn't get caught until he left the Reseration.
When the State and/or Federal Govs. actually do something about the Tribal Entities(its good to have family in HIGH places) that protect and harbor these Criminals then these Criminals can/will continue to get awy with the Crimes they commit.

i know sid, and believe me, eagle butte was bad before he got to eagle butte, just becuz he's in jail doesn't mean shit. If any of you know eagle butte, then you know that he didn't run shit in town, hell he hardly ever came outside, and when he did, it's not the whole world came falling down. there was no panic, not even when he was on the run. if you do the crime you'll do the time, and then when you get out and see all the shit talking on the internet about you, you'll do another crime against the shit talker's... by then, who gives a fuck, you can do time again. Might as well, cuz in eagle butte, you ain't got shit but time anyway.

the federal penal system is detaining alot of skins, throughout the nation. alot of them are put in jail for petty crimes, that people off the rez, only get probation or fines. every jail in the nation has alot of our brothers and sisters in locked up. some are guilty and deserve punishment, and some don't deserve to be there. but they are. thanks to our so called indian sovereignty and jurisdiction. i applaude say say, and believe we do have to get out and experience what life has to offer. the rez will always be there. it's a big world out there, and believe it or not the social programs are alot better out there, then on the rez. we take what crumbs the government gives the indians, and what left overs the state allows the tribes to have (after they take there cut off it).
racism on the rez is worse than on the outside. east side vs west side, ieska"s, cowboys, skins, darkskined indians, lightskined indians, urban indians, rez indians, etc see what i mean.

I'm just glad they caught the guys. With a father in law enforcement, I know I was sweating a little. I feel horrible for the trooper, he still has to go to work after all of this. It's a tough enough job without getting assaulted and left for dead on the side of the road. I'm just glad the bad dudes didn't decide to off a couple of rounds before leaving. eesh

south dakota, is known accross the nation as the mississipi of the midwest. racism is felt by people of color throughout the state. which is probly why when a indian gets into trouble the media jumps on it with both feet, so to speak. you rarely hear about the native people who are doing good, but when one gets into trouble, check the news. when sid was on the run, the media played it up so much, i thought it was going to be southern justice(shoot first and ask questions later). theres alot of trigger happy crackers out there, who would like nothing better than to blow some skin away. we know this on the rez. but sometimes our own tribal police, also have this same mentality.

We Natives have it bad, "Sid" is a victum of Historical Oppression and other Historical Issues we Natives have to endure living in this White Man's World. How many Native Men, Women, and Children have been Raped/Murdered/stole from/lied to/and inprisoned for just being Native over the past 500+ years. I have an attitude toward everything (White) because there has been NO JUSTICE for the crimes committed on us. Maybe if some JUSTICE was given to us, we Natives may have a better attitude toward White Society-many of us just don't give a F___! and then there are the Assimilated F___kers who have there head so far up the White Man ass...."Oh man-I think I need a hung"

so that makes it OK to kick the crap out of an officer for making a traffic stop? damn, maybe i can get away with more than i thought. come on, who has the right to beat a cop to the point of unconsciousness for performing a trafic stop? then why stop there? lets shoot all teachers, lawyers, parents, and kids... god knows we're opressed by all of them.

i can see where you're coming from. my people were opressed as well. forced to pay taxes to a foreign land we held no allegance to, seen as less than human (called barbaric and believed to be a cancer on society), they even tried to breed us out by taking new wives and having sex with them before the husband was allowed to. our children were forced to take arms and fight our enemy as soon as they could carry a weapon and hundreds upon hundreds of young lives were lost. you know what we did? we took the high road. we fought, but also taught our children to fight smart. now we are a strong people with rights in america that we never thought we could have. just because a certain group of people opressed us, hated us, and screwed us over doesn't mean we get anything in return. we fight, we continue to fight, and we became victorious in our battles. can you guess who i am?

no matter what we do as natives, when we get to a whitemans court, we're the ones are the bad ones i for one experienced my daughter was in jail in rapid city penn.co. jail and they treated her like she was a murderer and i believe that if she was a white bitch the lawyer and the so-called honorable judge would of let her go alongtime ago.
