General Custer tries again

Morton County, N.D. Sheriff Kyle L. Kirchmeier sent a letter to Obama Friday stating that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ recent decision not to grant a permit for a portion of the Dakota Access Pipeline “has done nothing to ease the tension or alleviate the potential for more violence.”
Kirchmeier wrote that he has asked the White House multiple times for “financial assistance and additional manpower” to “respond to the increasingly dangerous situation developing on federal land owned by the Corps.”

It is not federal land, neither the sheriff nor the US army has jurisdiction.
