Alaska justice problems, solutions

In Native country in rural Alaska, justice is a non-existent issue. State troopers just ignore or ''lose'' SAM case reports, domestic violence incidents, or whatever they want. There is no recourse, and the longer cases go unattended, the more prolific the problem becomes, the less attention abused Natives receive. These sick adults preying on children need to stop. Sex offenders are very rarely changed, even with services.

In working for Child Protective Services, I sit helpless as my children are ignored and sick adults surf the great freedom board, lying through their teeth, in total denial. What is wrong with this system? Place money in rural law enforcement and face reality. Start putting Natives in high places in the system. There could be results.
