Breaking Bad or Already Broken? Drug Crime on the Rez Is All Too Real

Sure, television is fanciful, but it's true that criminals have found that doing business in Indian country is profitable because of the remoteness, the lack of officers on patrol, and the jurisdictional tangles created by non-Indian crime on Indian land

The reservation system is such a nightmare in part because First Nations are told that they have autonomy, and then, whenever they attempt to use that authority, federal and state gov'ts interfere in every single tribal decision. Anyone with even the slightest acquaintance of the economic and political reality of any of the reservations can't help but come away with the feeling that the dominator gov'ts are still making war against indigenous people. They just hide their war under the veneer of legality.

Catch 22 situation that really shouldn't exist. Weapons smuggling occurs too. Let First Nations develop their own autonomous decisions.

Tricky situation I'll agree but what has a poor boy to do?
