The idiocy behind the Dakota Access Pipeline protesters: This week, two protesters were charged with attacking the Dakota Access Pipeline project. DAPL will provide oil supplies from the Bakken field in North Dakota to an oil tank in Illinois. In doing so, it has created thousands of jobs and offers the prospect of reduced energy bills.
The protesters don't agree.
Jessica Reznicek and Ruby Montoya justified their acts, stating "that the system is broken, and it is up to us as a individuals to take peaceful action and remedy it, and this we did, out of necessity."
