This weekend, protests over the Dakota Access Pipeline escalated into a violent standoff between demonstrators and police. On Sunday afternoon, the peaceful “water protectors” attempted to move a barricade set up by police on the Highway 1806 bridge. The Morton County Sheriff’s Department, along with National Guard soldiers, responded by firing rubber bullets at close range, bombarding the protestors with tear gas bombs and concussion grenades, and shooting water cannons into the crowd in sub-freezing weather.
