someone get this guy a pat on the back he wants acknowledgment for predicting arrests at a protest,
Warren's memo also noted that because of what it called "misinformation" in the news, the company is working to "communicate with the government and media more clearly in the days to come."
Warren said the company had consulted with more than 55 tribes, including the Standing Rock Sioux, and added that ETP values and respects "cultural diversity and the significant role that Native American culture plays in our nation's history and its future and hope to be able to strengthen our relationship with the Native American communities as we move forward with this project."
Archambault said the consultations were one-sided and that "they met with us after their plans were already made."
Jack Schaaf, 60, has been keeping away from the grassy camp where thousands of Native Americans have joined the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s fight against an oil pipeline.
Where Native Americans see the camp as a scene of prayer and peaceful protests, Mr. Schaaf and other ranchers and residents in the conservative, overwhelmingly white countryside view the protests with a mix of frustration and fear, reflecting the deep cultural divides and racial attitudes in Indian country.
“You get 2,000, 3,000 Natives together — is it safe?” Mr. Schaaf asked as he mowed the grass outside a home he and his son are building next to a cornfield, about 10 miles north of the camp.

She edited the video there was no dog bite it was faked for the camera. The protestors went on to there property to attempt to stop the construction of an access road. Ot isn't Indian property it's owned by the company and that's why it's trespassing. Jill Stine supposedly spray painTed a vehice don't know how true that is. But she is charged with destruction of property.

Hopefully this pipeline plan falls through...
The natives don't want it and rightly, if it's on their land, it's their resources.
When has that ever stopped "them"? It'll just take longer to grab all the land this time and I seriously doubt that The Native will fall for a Bible™ and dis-ease like the last time...
Just for snips and giggles see who has sold the most Budweiser™ in singles.. (at one time #1 and #2 were 2 Shop & Robs at the entrance of the Reservation where alcohol is prohibited...)
actually they both have been bought and paid for. People are niave if you think this is just people nit wanting the pipeline near them. There is very powerful people that don't want this pipeline so oil can't be removed from the bakken oil fields oh and Canada. This is a way to make transport of the oil cheaper meaning it will secure the US spot as the number one oil producer in the world. The US allready produces more barrels than the Saudis and sit on a bigger supply. This is simply the switch from the US being energy dependent to self sufficient. People don't like thr idea that the US becomes thr number one supplier in thr world it scares alot of people.
