Dakota Pipeline - Protest Gone Wrong
« on: February 23, 2017, 04:49:23 PM »
From http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/02/23/dakota-pipeline-camp-raided-after-protesters-defy-deadline-refuse-to-leave.html

start excerpt [

Now the cleanup efforts begin. The camps span more than 1,000 acres, which had been, according to state officials, sensitive wildlife habitat. Now, because of an early thaw and thousands of “water protectors” it is a wet, muddy cesspool of human waste and hazardous fuels after protesters turned the native grassland into a dumping ground.

According to the Col John Henderson of the US Army Corp of Engineers, crews have already removed some 250 truckloads of trash, but his agency plans to spend upwards to $1.2 million of taxpayer money to rehabilitate the area.

"To ensure that none of this garbage and waste and debris and structures and vehicles ended up in the reservoir. That would be an absolute environmental catastrophe,” Henderson said.

So the protesting environmentalists - are screwing up the environment. They didn't think through that much. The area is also flooding? They should just sit back and let this go through the spring thaw. Hope these folks will pay for the clean-up. Wait - did that say $1.2M in taxpayer money? Why should that possibly be? Garnish their wages until they pay for the mess they made. Seriously, why would the taxpayers pay for this clean-up?

They didn't have the balls to kick them off of private property so why cry now.
People sleep peacefully at night because there are a few tough men prepared to do violence on their behalf.

Go dump the 250 truckloads on tribal land.

This just goes to show what the media can do. This protest from the beginning was about being a jerk nothing more. It had nothing to do with the pipeline or tribe.
How many in the MSM even mentioned this isn't even on Tribal land but what 10 miles away?
