I watched the trailer and then read the comment and the whole thing pissed me off. Here is the comment and link:

The Pine Ridge reservation or Dakota Sioux tribal lands in North Dakota
have endemic poverty. It's like stepping into a 3rd world nation in central
or south America, but in our own backyard. Unfortunately cases like this
don't surprise me due to the chronic high suicide rate of tribal youth.
Their society is under funded, lack of resources, under staffed with
unemployment rates exceeding 50%. Besides high incident rates of alcoholism
due to the corruption surrounding nearby districts selling to the tribes.

Then I wrote:
Where oh where is the investigation of the STATE authorities that take
children out of their homes for profit?
Atrayo, why do you confuse the situation? Pine Ridge is in SOUTH Dakota not
North Dakota. Do you think that it possible that the suicide rate on Pine
Ridge might have something to do with the town of White Clay which sell 4.3
million cans of beer in a town of about 30 people? White Clay exist to keep
the Indians under control as the U. S. Govt. steals their natural
resources, dumps toxic materials on their land and allows the Keystone XL
pipeline to be rerouted through three tribes sovereign territory.
But hey, let's all jump on the band wagon and blame the tribes for all our
failures. Hmm, that does sound familiar doesn't it?
I had two windows opened and on one they printed my comment and on the other they didn't. It is not there now. Frontline is part of the problem, not part of the cure.
Because of my anger there are many, many things I did not say that I now wish I had said.
