I may have taken artistic license by showing a mainstream-ish TV news reporter here, as it seems this very important story is being largely ignored. In case you haven’t been following, a recent college grad had her arm mutilated by what many think was a concussion grenade; police sprayed people with hoses in the subfreezing night, risking deadly hypothermia; another woman had her retina severed. Journalists are facing arrest and rubber bullets. The camp is facing evacuation on December 5, a situation which threatens to become violent. It’s imperative that Obama step in; this is not a time for overcautiousness. The stakes here are enormous. It’s not only the Standing Rock Sioux who are imperiled; the world cannot afford this pipeline.
