NEW TOWN, ND - AUGUST 13: View of three oil wells and flaring of natural gas on The Fort Berthold Indian Reservation near New Town, ND on August 13, 2014. About 100 million dollars worth of natural gas burns off per month because a pipeline system isn't in place yet to capture and safely transport it . The Three Affiliated Tribes on Fort Berthold represent Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nations. It's also at the epicenter of the fracking and oil boom that has brought oil royalties to a large number of native americans living there. More income has also translated to more crime on the resvation in the form of meth use and additction, drunk driving, assaults and domestic violence. A small tribal police force is finding it difficult to cover the nearly one-million acre reservation as well as retain officers. (Photo by Linda Davidson / The Washington Post via Getty Images)
