I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…
Jill Stein Charged For North Dakota Pipeline Protest:
A sheriff’s department in North Dakota filed charges against the U.S. Green Party presidential candidate, Jill Stein, for damaging equipment during protests on Tuesday over construction of an oil pipeline.
Stein was part of a group protesting the Dakota Access pipeline and spray-painted construction equipment, the Morton County Sheriff’s Department said. Stein does not dispute the account. The department said Stein and her running mate Ajamu Baraka was charged with criminal trespass and criminal mischief.
My Commentary: Spray paint on digging equipment? You’ll be charged with “damaging equipment” and “criminal mischief.”
Sic dogs on, and maul, peaceful protesters? No charges.
