  1. Nanuvut Justice System is a total joke. September 18 2021 my 19 year old son got struck and killed by a drunk driver and that driver is still walking free waiting for trial. unless it’s a politician or a judges kids that got struck and killed that drunk driver would have been remanded as soon as they found him. enough with drinking and driving if you want to drink walk damn it
