Throwing in my .02 since I’m a long time Fairbanks resident, but subscribe to “contribute or shut up” unlike the other guy.
There have been problems with CPS here for a long time. My own family’s problems with them go back 11 years, when one of my cousins got involved in a nasty legal fight with his ex-wife over his kids. The ex-wife was found in a hotel room doing coke and fucking some rando while feeding the kids dog food, and yet OCS (Operational Child Services) fought FOR her for more than three years. They insisted on forcing us to allow the boys to visit their grandparents, despite their grandpa being unaccounted for at one point after saying he was going to get the boys back and driving off with a shotgun. The grandmother convinced the older boy that the father sexually abused him before he was old enough to remember, effectively ruining him and turning him into a sexual predator as early as 14. OCS would believe the drug-addled mother over my own parents. Perhaps the worst thing they did was ambush my brother at school, taking him into a room and interrogating him about my parents (“do they ever abuse you?” “Do they ever yell at you?”) WITHOUT any school personnel there, or notifying my parents. I was out of town on a field trip at the time, but they were trying to get ahold of me too.
I know people from high school who work for OCS now. They went to extremely left wing universities and are very proud of having gone to events and camps sponsored by Hillary and her pal Podesta. I will always despise OCS for what they did to our family, and frankly we got off easy. Rumors that OCS has been abducting children have been around forever.
The systemic problems go beyond OCS. Fairbanks is experiencing dramatically increasing levels of crime, and the local authorities refuse to do anything about it - even when the victims have very clear surveillance footage and positive ID through social media. Second hand accounts of law enforcement - both city and state - going into businesses and coming out of the back room after barely a minute once or twice a month abound, going back decades.
The biggest city in the state, Anchorage, is even worse. Shootings and hostage situations abound there, fed by a growing number of imported laborers to feed seafood processing industries.
A few years back there was some national review that rated states on things like corruption and transparency, and Alaska hilariously scored the best out of all states. What a fucking joke. Our politicians mingle with oil company execs at the same cafes; at the very least oil money rules this state. SB21 was the people’s attempt to try and revert a bill the legislature passed that gave away billions of dollars to the oil kikes (gee, why are we broke?). Leading up to that vote oil money flooded local media of all kinds with advertising against SB21, and SB21 was a full page of legalese written specifically to confuse normies as to what voting “yes” or “no” actually meant. Of course, our shitheel politicians were quiet about this fucking disgrace. Our current governor is a loon, hated by both parties. Our senators and reps skate by, but they’re establishment shills too (looking at you, Murkowski).
I’ve had the misfortune of interacting with our courts as a witness several times. They’re just as incompetent as the rest. Nepotism and personal power plays are the standard.
That being said, there are a shit load of Russians here and most of them aren’t Jewish. All the ones I’ve met are either Orthodox or Russian Baptist who came here to escape religious persecution, don’t have any trust or faith in government, and generally see laws as recommendations. I would wager there are more unregistered NFA items here than any state except, maybe, the southern border states. The problem is that any violent revolt will never work. This state will starve out in three-five days max. We produce 1% of our own food, and there’s one highway and one port to bring it in by, and tens of thousands of military personelle stationed here.
So. Welcome to my town, and my state. It’s a fucking shitshow. DOTR can’t come soon enough. Schaefer Cox did nothing wrong.
