Why are we killing and abusing each other?
By Native Sun News Editorial Board

Because we are an American Indian publication our staff is often asked, it seems more and more frequently, “Why is there so much crime and killing in the Indian community?”

Every time we turn on the television news or read a local newspaper there seems to be an episode of an Indian killing an Indian or an Indian charged an armed robbery or spousal or child abuse. How do we answer that question?
