A pedophile on the rez

And not the only one. 

I am familiar with this story, having followed it (lived in the area for years) but it's still just appalling.  Doctors with criminal tendencies tend to find their sweet spot in places just like this because there is absolutely NO supervision by the gubmint, who is supposedly in charge of these clinics and hospitals. No one else has any authority, and therein lies the problem.

Pine Ridge is THEEEE poorest city in the poorest county in America.  It's partly the fault of the people who live there, it's partly to mostly the fault of our benevolent gubmint officials.

Remember back in the old days when the army sent "agents" to the newly formed Indian Reservations to oversee the distribution of food, clothing, blankets, housing situations, etc.??  Yeah, only all the food, etc., went into the pockets of the agents who then sold whiskey and guns to the Indians instead, plus they got their army paycheck.  That's pretty much exactly what still goes on today in these areas.  No one cares. No one is watching.  No one is paying attention.  And when someone does, they are silenced or not believed, much like this story.

Most of the people who live in this area have given up trying, and that includes other doctors from nearby cities and towns who travel to Pine Ridge to consult on special cases.  Finally, justice may be served in this case, tho, but it doesn't mean the end of the trouble.
