Letter: More well-trained law enforcement needed in oil country
They should have been doing this years ago (regarding Tuesday’s article, “1 in 4 trucks driving in oil country have violations). Our daughter would probably still be alive. The state of North Dakota failed our daughter and our family. There are no excuses, no stammering attempts at a defense.
Many people failed to serve and protect, many of whom are reading this. May God have mercy on your souls gentlemen.
We had many experts, both in-state and out of state, look at the North Dakota Highway Patrol accident report. We heard many comments. “Where is the rest of it?” ”This is the sloppiest accident report I have ever seen.” “Is this it?” “Where are the pictures?” “Where are the measurements?”
We need law enforcement to get the proper training and do the jobs North Dakota taxpayers are paying them to do. And the companies knowingly hiring rogue drivers need to be held accountable and not be able to hide behind some outrageous contract. Bottom line, one of their drivers kills somebody.
All hell is breaking loose here and where is our state law enforcement, where are our state officials?
I drive one the most dangerous highways in the country four times a day and it is terrifying; we have already lost one child and everyday I fear losing another. We need help here.
New Town and the surrounding area has become a modern day tombstone.
