Wait until the tribes want their land back.
I'm down with that.

In our time it's only indian land when crimes are committed by indians
Or against Indians. On this I agree, civil matters should be federal/tribal as well unless it involves non-Indian(s)/businessess, etc. Then it should be State/local working with federal/tribal.

But sadly, most haters are just gonna conduct idiot speak and demonstrate they were democrats at one time, then I'll end up getting warnings and points for getting up their collective racist asses. oh well.

Really? You want to pay reparations for all the missing oil, gas, coal and other mined minerals for over 110 years? You want to negotiate the ownership of land and mineral interest? It'll go to the tribes and they will fight amongst themselves over what is done with it. How about all the lakes and streams that would be on tribal lands with the stroke of a pen? Timber? It would all be a mess that I can't even comprehend. Hopefully that's why it will never happen. Hopefully...

I know a man that is a tribal citizen pulled over and arrested for dui that blew a .22 on breathalyzer. Second offense in ten years. Let go because of McGirt. Good family man but should be in jail. If you commit a crime it should not matter which law enforcement agency enforces the law.

Just another sign of discrimination. I reckon us honkies are the minority now. :rolleyes2

That's called officer discretion. Sometimes it's better just to handle things thataway than just hauling someone off to jail or giving them a ticket that more than likely isn't going to get paid anyway.

Mrs. GED says it's because we're on our way to the donut shop.

I get it and completely understand. However, If you did what the officer did and let the intoxicated people drive off and they kill someone else down the road I'd imagine you, as the officer that let them go, and the department said officer works for would be liable for knowing and letting an intoxicated person drive off. It'd probably only take a mediocre attorney to win any lawsuit against the officer and his department.

Yes, you are correct. But if you have a sober, licensed driver in the vehicle with them, there's no law that says you can't let them drive the intoxicated person home.
