Letter: Wake up; we are riddled with crime

Why is it that whenever something happens in Fargo, police Lt. Joel Vettel gets on TV and pronounces that this rarely happens in this area? How many times are women and men going to be murdered, raped or beaten until we all wake up and see that we are riddled with crime like anywhere else?

If the judges and attorneys were accountable for letting these criminals go free, maybe there would be less. Excuses are getting old.

If the jails or prisons are full, then maybe we here in North Dakota should take some empty land (of which there is plenty) and build a huge federal penitentiary and employ hundreds of Americans to work there. Then we can keep these criminals locked away for good.
