North Dakota Native American reservation has an epidemic of sexual assault

According to the Department of Justice, one in three Native American women is raped in her lifetime and the U.S. government is doing little to stop it.

In fact, federal prosecutors have declined to prosecute 67 percent of sexual abuse cases on reservations, even when they involve children, according to the government accountability office.

Ted Rowlands has an OutFront investigation.

    I am an enrolled member of this reservation, however, live in another state. I want to know how to help. I feel this is detrimental and needs to be addressed the proper way, and the BIA has failed the children there. Any ideas how I can help!?

    It's enough misery to make one think those Atheists maybe onto something.
