So law enforcement cleared camps set up specifically to block construction and left the camp that was set up in a lawful area alone. Imagine that.
When a cop shows up to remove you from an area, you're going to be removed. Use all the rhetoric and buzzwords you want, but resisting the removal will be met with an increased level of force until the resistance is overcome and the removal effected.

That is why you shouldn't go to a peaceful protest unarmed. You know the police will be armed, you should be armed too.
Wouldn't doubt it if that's what starts happening soon if events keep going down like this.
Cowards.Moral cowards.As always when it comes to Native American rights no one wants to face that head on The figurehead is far too worried about his presidential library and foundation.Hill the $hill won't say anything because there's no cash in Native American rights and Der Trump well he's a huge investor in the DAPL.

You know why nobody's willing to touch this one? Corrupt politics aside?
Because it's something society does not want to face more than anything else. It would shove Black Lives Matter into the damn shadows, and show a REAL consistently oppressed & marginalized group, in real-time, show the tangible injustice and tangible seizures & use of rightful property. Real stuff of a discernible, long-term magnitude that has been shoved deep under the rug since before slaves. It's not a half-wit SJWs racial pseudo-crusade on Twitter, it's actual heavy stuff impacting the remnants of legit here-before-us cultures we still utterly screw over today. And no one wants to touch it.
