SD's National Guard Authorized to Kill Protesters, Even Non-violent Ones

Updated: Nov 19, 2021 February 2021, South Dakota's National Guard is now authorized to kill protesters, even non-violent ones, anyone deemed to have damaged property will be shot on sight if resisting arrest or attempting to flee. Many water protectors may die at the hands of authorities as a result of this authorization. Spray painting a bulldozer that is making way for an oil pipeline across your land is now a capital offense in the USA. If you spray paint a piece of equipment in protest, you can be shot in the back as you are running away, legally, by someone fresh out of adolescence in South Dakota, with little-to-no training in how to handle protests or protestors.
