OP-ED: Standing Rock a War Zone???

    On a North Dakota prairie, nonviolent protesters are being confronted by police in riot gear
with armored military vehicles, automatic rifles, sonic weapons, concussion grenades, attack dogs, pepper spray and beanbag bullets.

     The Native American protestors, trying to protect the water at Standing Rock, are being treated like prisoners of war by the local law who support the Dakota Access Pipeline project.

    Some are being strip-searched and detained in structures resembling dog kennels. Police are even hooding detainees
and forcing them to remain naked in jail cells.
    This is clearly another form of racism, as exhibited by the Trump campaign. Will the US Department of Justice step in and stop this???
