A private security firm guarding the highly controversial construction of $3.8 billion oil pipeline turned mercenary on Saturday, unleashing vicious attack dogs against a sizable crowd of peaceful protesters — including women and children.
Members of the Standing Rock Sioux and at least 100 other Native American nations as well as activists and advocates peacefully chanted “water is life” while guards held dogs nearby to intimidate the crowd.

It should be possible to be honest, taking children to a demonstration.
A legitimate tool in democracy. Like going on strike. That should be peaceful.

And I also don't go into the gender business, that's not topic.
What we see here is a security company, basically, letting lose dogs, biting people. Wtf? You can't do that # in the name of any law!
Does your government even know your're nanny abuses you? *metaphor

This is just a taste of what is to come I think.
Private security firms being given the green light to behave in whatever manner they see fit, as long as they disperse any protest, even peaceful ones.
Being paid, no doubt handsomely, to attack anyone questioning the morality and environmental impact of such projects.
Police for the people at the top, private security for the projects they give the nod to, particularly controversial projects.
