Alaska did many things to promote rapes such as not requiring those convicted of sex crimes who came to Alaska from other states to register until a few years ago, not having law enforcement in the remote villages, not testing rape kits and unbelievably I watched as raped women came to the ER where I worked and the Nome Police did not arrest the perpetrators who were known to them. People in Nome were just OK with that, I was not. The cops were OK with it. It was like being on another planet and people did not like my opinions. I was right. Politically motivated charging and convicting of crimes were not a problem for the police or court in Nome. Cruel and vicious bastards.
“There is no justice in America, but it is the fight for justice that sustains you.” Amiri Baraka
All one can do in the face of evil is fight to stop it and make changes otherwise your own humanity will be lost to those who have no conscience or ethics. You will be damaged, but find out who you are and know you did the best you could. Believe me that is very important.
It is evident that there is no justice in Alaska. The myth of the justice system in the United States being of high standard has been broken, but Alaska surpasses the oppression of that two tier system of injustice down to a level of heinous indifference that stuns humanity in a country that calls itself civilized.
