I am now re-considering and re-evaluating what the City of Dickinson Police and the Dickinson Mafia are doing. Rather than continuing to complain, I may have to acknowledge that some of their practices, are necessary in Dickinson, North Dakota.
I have written several blog posts in the past complaining about the City of Dickinson Police always being so eager to follow everyone and pull them over. I know that they were stopping people in order to check driver’s licenses and vehicles, to see if anyone had warrants, were driving under the influence, had illegal weapons or drugs, stolen property, or anything else illegal. But I was sick and tired of being surveilled and stalked by the Police, when I wasn’t doing anything illegal.
On Thursday night of this past week, when a vehicle ran up over the curb, across the grass strip, and through a chain link fence where I usually park my vehicle, for the third time in the past six months, I wished that the Police in Dickinson could round up all the White Trash in Dickinson.
It’s not just that a vehicle crashed over the curb and through a chain link fence in this 25 mph zone for the third time in six months, or that another vehicle crashed into my equipment trailer in this spot, or that one of my vehicles got stolen during this time, or that my neighbors’ vehicles have had property stolen from them, it’s that this is happening all throughout Dickinson.
I don’t know if things were ever this bad in Dickinson before, or if this happened following the second oil boom in 1983, but Dickinson now is just full of White Trash and hoodlums. I think that 50% of this is poor White Trash from out-of-state, and 50% of this is locally born White Trash. I do think that poor drug addict people from out-of-state have had a negative effect on poor locally born people, making them much worse.
What I hated was the Dickinson Police following, surveilling, and stalking everyone in Dickinson, but I guess they have to. Apparently, if the Dickinson Police let up for one minute, the White Trash take this opportunity to crash a vehicle, steal a vehicle, or steal property out of a vehicle, garage, or business.
I had written blog posts in the past complaining about the Dickinson Mafia. For those of you who don’t know, the Dickinson Mafia are a group of business owners, property owners, and leadership in the City, that have tried to control what goes in Dickinson in the past: Development, ordinances, hiring, firing, wage rates, promotions, marriage, who succeeds, and who fails.
I felt that it was wrong for a group of prominent and successful men to try to determine and control so much, what happens to other people. Now, at this time in Dickinson, when I see so many people running amock, the White Trash problem, the misbehavior, theft, and drug problems, I wish that the Dickinson Mafia would get Dickinson back under control.
Here is how the Dickinson Mafia used to work: If someone got arrested in Dickinson for DUI, illegal drugs, assault, domestic violence, burglary, or theft, within a day or two, they would no longer have a job in Dickinson, nor would they be able to get another job. Their spouse may also lose their job within a day or two. Not being able to pay rent within a month or two, they would be evicted, and would be unable to find replacement housing. They would have no place to work or live in Dickinson. They would have to leave Dickinson.
I wish that the Dickinson Press newspaper would begin again to publish the names of people in Dickinson who are arrested for DUI, illegal drugs, assault, domestic violence, burglary, and theft, and publish this in the Dickinson Press Police Blotter every week.
The owners and the managers of every business in Dickinson would read the Police Blotter every week, to see if anyone working for them had been arrested. And if they didn’t read it for themselves, one of their friends, relatives, or customers would telephone them and let them know. Once these people’s names were made public, the Dickinson Mafia, the public, customers, friends, and relatives would be saying to them, “Why do let criminals work for you? Why are you helping criminals?”
Back when the Dickinson Mafia was more active and involved, they did not tolerate or allow White Trash in Dickinson. I would like to see the Dickinson Mafia, the City of Dickinson Police, and everyone else begin to force the White Trash, hoodlums, drug dealers, and drug addicts out of Dickinson.
