Can Anyone Explain The Excessive Show Of Force By Law Enforcement At Standing Rock, N. Dakota

Once again, I'm not cynical even though some people misconstrue my name. But what is going on here folks? The humans that are trying to protect the water that you and I depend on are facing a police force probably never the likes have been seen before in N. Dakota. Not long ago the folks that took over the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge - people whose cattle have damaged many a riparian area - had much less attention by law enforcement. And when it was all said and done and your legal process ran its course...they got off scot-free! Something isn't adding up here...but I'm only a fish - what do I know?

Can anyone tell me what the gas masks are for?
