MANTLE OF SHAME: Perpetrators of Violence Against Native American Women. All who work against protecting Native women in the Violence Against Women Act for intentionally maintaining the jurisdictional gap on reservations that allows perpetrators to remain free. Tribal police and courts need statutory authority to hold violent offenders accountable, because Native nations were stripped of that jurisdiction by federal law, but federal and state authorities do not vigorously pursue non-Native predators on tribal lands. One in three Native women is raped during her lifetime; non-Natives commit 88 percent of all violent crimes against Natives and about 67 percent of sexual assault cases are not prosecuted. Representatives Darrell Issa of California and Tom Cole of Oklahoma are to be commended for introducing legislation that addresses concerns of other Republicans, who do not know that tribal jurisdiction regarding nontribal defendants is constitutional.
All the prominent white men who opined about rape and women, notably: Representative Todd (legitimate rape) Akin of Missouri (Akin and Ryan co-sponsored with around 200 other House members an earlier bill proposing a new legal category: forcible rape); GOP candidate for Senate from Indiana Richard (rape pregnancies are a gift from God) Mourdock; the Virginia legislators who wanted to force women to have transvaginal ultrasound probes before abortions and Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell, who asked for and signed into law less invasive jelly-on-the-belly ultrasounds; and tax reformer Grover Norquist, whose antitax pledge led to the GOP fiscal cliff stand, reportedly said, Bipartisanship is another name for date rape.

I'd like to see a source for those statistics.
“non-Natives commit 88 percent of all violent crimes against Natives”
100%, gold plated BS. That stat demands the methodology of the “study”. Domestic violence, drunken fights, and dope issues between natives must all be removed from the equation. NOt to mention that the gangsta hip-hop culture is alive and well on the res.
And passed through Pine Ridge last summer. Almost not a white person in sight, but as i entered the town from the south, it looked like there had been a shootout because there were so many bodies laying everywhere. On the streets, the sidewalks, etc. All dead drunk.
And where drunkness goes, violence follows. Their violence is home grown.
Ummmm. Nope. That was back in the 70s. The 1870s.
the ‘70s,,,,the 1870s,,, snort! lol
Why even post such bull sh_t?
Job No. 1 is going to be to get a handle on the alcohol abuse.
I told my kids when they got into their teen years that they were NOT going to be able to drink like their buddies, because they are 50% aboriginal Irish on both sides as well as having a small admixture of Cherokee blood, again on both sides, and greater than that claimed by Fauxcahontas. Genetically unable to detox it as fast as those Anglo-Saxons.
They seem to have taken it to heart. Both pretty wild, but neither one of them a drinker.
Senator warren, you being of indian descent what say you?
So would I.
You went through Pine Ridge? You came from the south? How is White Clay these days?
Eye opening. And my college age daughter was with me. We went out to wounded knee, then back through town, and headed on into the Black Hills and on to western Wyoming.
We had a great discussion about the fact that Pine Ridge is a pertri dish for what America would look like if the US govt ran everything with almost no local government.
There were propaganda signs everywhere, and every large structure was a government building of one kind or another.
We discussed why the absence of unlimited private property is so destructive. Every American should pass through there. If the federal footprint is so large there, and the result so poor, there are obvious questions to be asked. A racist answer is the go-to for some, but this evasion of truth only serves to protect the federal overlords and their local tribal vassals.

Okay I’ll start checking with bullsh_t experts in the future before posting articles. Thanks for your input.
Cheyenne Eagle Butte is no better. Both counties took turns being the most poverty striken in the US. PINE Ridge is now what we will become if things continue as is
Hey, if you want to post Libtard propaganda knock yourself out Howard Dean.
“One in three Native women is raped during her lifetime; non-Natives commit 88 percent of all violent crimes against Natives and about 67 percent of sexual assault cases are not prosecuted.”
Interesting how it’s not reported here that most of those rapes are incest...so where do these figures come from? And from the mouths of Natives to my ears, Native punks on the res attack other Natives “all the time”. Someone pulled this crap out of their hat.
