"At the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, 39 gangs have led to thousands of gang-related police calls."
When the tribal police try to do something to stop the gang bangers all you hear is how those Nazi cops are picking on some mamma's good little boy.

Fact is those Tribal Officers should carry a extra long night club and start thumping heads. Throw the gang boys in jail for gathering in groups more than four unless they are activly playing basket ball. Then they better not have the same tatoos or wear the same colors that identify themselves as gang bangers.

If any group fight together as a group they are at once arrested and jailed or kicked off the reservations.

Someone needs to take the sap out of the young bucks that are causing trouble even if they are someones good little boy.

Problem is that on the reservation the thinking is warped and they blame the tribal police for arresting anyone and want the officer to just stand their and either get stabbed with a knife or get the heck beat out of them by some mamma's good little boy.

What I have noticed at an event or any gathering like football games police constant harrassment of gang members flashing signs and so on. Standing them up against the wall and frisk them and of course you will find enough on anyone of them to make a trip to the jail house if nothing else just to call their parents to come and pick them up. Send the Lighthorse around the country to find how other police handle gangs. Remeber a good education will give you a better ideal to handle your own prolems. Constant harrasement.

If they had to grow gather and store their food and provide shelter the year round for the dependants it would be time well spent not a punishment . Back to the blanket .
