“The Corps sent a letter to Standing Rock Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault Nov. 25, saying the decision is to protect the general public from violent confrontations between protesters and law enforcement in that area.“
Hey, law enforcement aren’t like grizzly bears or coyotes or something, the government could actually just tell them not to be violent, and that would ALSO protect the general public from violent confrontations between protesters and law enforcement in that area.
This is such horseshit.
