The Second Great Depression brought down many governments, and increased lawlessness in many others.  When drug gangs tried to take over Dixie’s hometown, she had a few things to say about the matter.  I don’t use that kind of language so I won’t repeat them here.  Suffice it to say she did not approve of their plans.  So she “borrowed” some National Guard drones and chased the gangs out of town.  And that was how she got started.
