What does oil have to do with this? People working in the oil industry are making enough money they don't have to rob a store and get 100 bucks. Maybe its all them dang university students, you know those kids who are beating up cops and being loud all the time.. geez

Saw four young homeless folks and their dogs by minot high on side of rode with sign asking for stuff, nice look for Minot. Keep it local. Can't wait to pay more taxes when we build all these new schools. Keep the people coming from all the undesirable states.

90% of the people who say the oil isn't the reason that our crime rate has skyrocketed are either riggers, people who are 'NOT' from here and haven't seen how this has changed from a peaceful safe town into a s**t hole. This guy may not be a rig worker, but its the 'opportunity' that has attracted the scum from all over this right raped country to North Dakota. It has its benefits yes. But I believe that its not worth what I've seen. These people know that our pd don't have the resources to properly handle so much crime. Probably why the kid was so freely touching the counter. Wasn't worried about leaving prints. People need to open their eyes and simply prepare for the worst that can very well now happen. Prepare yourselves good people and carry on. While the government says we still have that right.

Crime rates in Minot are lower than the national average. In fact, as the city has grown, per capita it has gotten safer. The reason why you think there is more is because MDN and other news agencies NEVER reported crime in the past because they didn't want the "NOT IN MY TOWN" attitude from changing. There was always crime here, but now they are forced to put some things in the paper.

Guess you'd have to have been here. And you're wrong unfortunately. Crime has risen. And yes if you are going to speak of national 'averages' then for population it could be significantly worse. But one of the things wrong with people now-a-days is that exactly. 'Well we aren't as bad as those people', or, 'worse things have happened', has become an excuse for those who don't want to accept either, responsibility for a wrong doing or come to terms with a terrible anything that may have happened. Trying to nudge off something bad with, Chicago is worse so its OK. Or, When a place got robbed back where I came from the guy got shot. These sad excuses are for people who don't want to have to accept the obvious. Change. It can be good or bad. Or both. As for Minot, its the latter. I have met many good people that have come up here. But they don't compare to the vast amount of worthless animals that I've meet and seen. There more drugs, rapes, assaults, robberies, vandalism, even muders.

The reason it is not in the news is because they want to keep the people blind as to not invoke a panic of some sort. Or separation/division of the town. There could be any number of reasons why so much is kept from the public. But the point I'm trying to make is that the crime in Minot have drastically increased and people need to be prepared to defend themselves. Because no one else is going to do it for them. This isn't a safe little town anymore. All the big gangs are up here now. Were producing an internationly known for of meth. And along with that comes all the people that deal and buy. Just be careful people. No more 'trust your neighbor' around here. Just like everywhere else now.

Commonsense- you say all these things, yet you produce no proof. I have given you proof in my post. Crime has not gone up. You can continue to say it has but it doesn't make it true. Proof is in the stats and the stats say no.

You just finished telling me that crime has been kept from the public since before the rigs boomed.. did you not? And now you try and tell me that the information on statistics that you quoted me are sound proof? That doesn't make any sense. You say in one sentence that crime hasn't gone up because so little has been reported in the past, then in the next say that these reports are your proof? Lets see some first hand experience. A little stretch here but a good example. 4 years ago when I first started listening to the police scanner at night, hardly anything said. Being a cop here must have been really boring. Now if you click it on at night its quote consistent with drunk drivers, noise complaints, domestic disputes, the usual elderly assistance required. The proof is right there for you every night if you've been watching. I have. I watch my surroundings, keep an eye out so my family doesn't always have to. So yes, I have my proof. And its not from the state or governments stats.

Quite not quote sorry. But I have seen more gang activity and heard of lots of things in this town that has got me worried. I want my kids to grow up in a safe community like Ive always dreamed. I guess the reason this topic has gotten to me is because I'm seeing this being stripped away. And so few care because now there is more money and opportunities. Like I said in my previous post. There good and bad about it. I just wish the bad didn't have to do with the safety of my wife and kids.
