It's too bad that there are 65% of people who think that the police is unfair and/or corrupt. Racism has been a problem in this country for way to long and needs to be taken care of.

I think that they should leave the area alone. Its really important to the native americans. Also, their rights their, as of 1842, gives them the right to hunt and fish there, so if the mining continued, it would go against that. Also, that place is a great place for some because they technically live there.
