I need a place to vent about this-

The standing rock protests are absolute horse shit.

For the uninformed, the nation is joining a group of Native Americans in ND over a pipeline on their land.

So here's what actually happened. It's backed up with a lot of documentation if you care to dig for it.

Oil company wants to build a pipeline through native land. Natives inform the company which areas are sacred. Terms are set for construction on sacred lands. The company already has the rights to adjacent non-sacred lands. Company offers 10 million for sacred. Natives counter with 50 million. Company proceeds to reroute entire pipeline to go on non-sacred lands. This is no small feat. It takes years to design a pipeline, and some more years to get all the papers and permits in order. To be fair, it looks like some construction did in fact begin before it had all proper permits.

So we come to now and suddenly the natives claim the pipe is still on sacred land. They are unable to offer any proof of this at all. And it's not part of the reservation anyway. It's purely about getting more money from the oil company. But we live in a time of social justice bandwagoning. So a bunch of idiots are breaking into fenced areas, getting chewed at by guard dogs and claiming police brutality.

Ah! it feels so good when I help out by changing my Facebook picture. Anyway, the oil company will probably go ahead and fork it over. It's at a point where it isn't really about who's in the right, it's about giving a giant fuck you to big oil. Hopefully I can avoid reading tidbits from the sudden rash of googletrained petroleum experts for the next few days, but I doubt it. What's the saying again? The more I read about things I know about on Reddit, the less I believe things on Reddit I don't know about.

This is the least biased and most digestible summary I could find, and trust me it was not easy.

Native Americans making a deal and then not honoring it. I feel like there may have been some point in history where they were on the other side of that

Let me just fact check that in my handy Texas textbook and nope they squandered all their wealth and white people came and made the land great again the end.

Don't forget that they're all a bunch of worthless casino mafiosos or drug addicts now anyway and that such a state is entirely their fault

Regardless of all of that other stuff (which sounds like it's probably close to what really happened), allowing guard dogs to go chew on people just seems moronic. It's like hitting that row of students in the face with pepper spray while they're just sitting there.

You drag them off one at a time, so it's not a big scene.

You don't go all out frontal assault; video cameras are everywhere and will inevitably spin things so you have to pay the 50 million you worked honestly to not have to pay. And really, do you need videos? Crying people talking about being attacked by dogs is going to create quite an image anyway. Turning dogs loose is just a damn stupid thing to do when you have lawful (if slower) ways to accomplish your goal. I mean they've already waited years, another day or two to legally clear an area is trivial next to 50 million.

Maybe it really is all about giving the big FU to the oil companies, but they shot themselves in the foot.
