    Methinks you're confusing the German POW's with the Japanese-Americans that were interned in camps until the war was over.

    We apologized for what we did to the Japanese-Americans and paid them reparations, but not the German POW's.

    Wasn't that motel in Colorado?

    German POWs were Germans, why would they deserve reparations?

    They wouldn't - that's my point.

    I think that Indy confused the interned Japanese-Americans with the German POW's that Moon made reference to originally.

    I always thought it was near Mt. Hood in Oregon, but the opening was shot in Glacier Nat'l Park in Montana.

    You ever heard of Brokeback Mountain?

    I think the Gitmo terrorists should have to watch Brokeback Mountain at least a half dozen times as an introduction to good'ol fashioned Montana hospitality.

    Or WOULD THAT be considered torture too?

    Well, close enough, the flick could still be used as an introduction to life on the range for our kind and loving terrorist friends.

    They were not arrested for public drunkenness.
    Then they don't have cross-jurisdiction like other reservations.

    Actually, the best source is a book by Luana Ross, Ph.D., "Inventing the Savage, The Social Construction of Native American Criminality". She's gone through the history of Montana and shows in her book that the early lawmakers of Montana devloped laws that basically made any Indian activity illegal. They made anything to do with cultural/religious gatherings of Indians illegal as well. She has done several studies of the Montana legal system and a couple of the prisons.
