    I never said they were above the national average. I said crime and drug use was growing. Which it is.

    Crime up 7.9 percent last year in North Dakota : Energy News

    But, the state's Uniform Crime Report from 2012, which was released on Tuesday, "was not a rosy one," Stenehjem said. Crime increased 7.9 percent in North Dakota in 2012 compared to 2011, and violent crime increased 7.2 percent. A record 243 rapes were reported in the state last year, up from 207 in 2011. The state's 20 murders in 2013 was the highest number for a single year since 22 were reported in 1993.

Have mandatory pigging runs and inspections through mandatory intervals and reporting of the results.

    That's at least a start. Because asking a corporation who wants to spend the very least to police themselves isn't working out so well.
    Maybe they should x-ray the pipe before it's buried? Whatcha think about that? Or how about rust resistant coating on the outside of the pipe?

    Still I fail to see a direct link between economic growth and increasing crime, conventional wisdom has that relationship the other way around in most cases.

    Libbos hate private sector growth, so they're going find some way to denegrate it.

    Still think camera inspections should be a must. There's more than just rust that can detoriorate pipeline health. Earthquakes, even minor ones. Large vehicles running over buried pipe where they aren't supposed to be. All sorts of things.

    How many oil pipelines are running through America?

    Or under it?

    And people really wanted one to run from Canada to the Gulf Of Mexico?
    We still want that pipeline.

    How many fatal car accidents happen every year and people still want to drive? Same thing. How many people die in war and many still join the military? Same thing. Life carries a level of risk.

    Ever think that they already do that?

    Sounds more like you're just assuming the worst and don't really know.

    Re: ND farmer finds oil spill while harvesting wheat

    Small aircraft fly over the pipelines regularly to inspect and look for spills. A fair number of low time pilots do that job to build time.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    Economic growth attracts crime. When the economic growth stops, crime persists. Case in point: Detroit and every other major city today. "Conventional wisdom" isn't a measurable statistic.
