Police forced protestors out of a makeshift camp in North Dakota and made some arrests in the process after protestors defied numerous orders to leave the property, per Fox News.
Two children, a 7-year-old and a 17-year-old, had to receive medical attention after remaining protestors set fire to the rest of the campsite. The 17-year-old was airlifted to Minneapolis because of the severity of her injuries.
Check it out:
The raids came after the eviction orders were unenforced for at least a day. Hundreds left peacefully on Wednesday after the 2 p.m. deadline, and 10 were arrested hours later after they taunted cops. But out of the tens of thousands that once called this prairie home, Gov. Doug Burgum said late Wednesday that 50 remained.
But hours later, 18 National Guardsmen and dozens of law officers entered the camp from two directions, along with several law enforcement and military vehicles. A helicopter and airplane flew overhead.
Officers checked structures and began arresting people, putting them in vans to take to jail. About two dozen people were arrested in the first half hour of the operation, according to Levi Bachmeier, a Burgum adviser.
North Dakota originally offered protesters a carrot. If they agreed to leave peacefully, they would receive a hotel room and bus ticket to anywhere in the U.S. As of Wednesday night, none had taken it. They also offered a courtesy or ‘ceremonial arrest’ for anyone needing a picture for their Facebook page. Again, no takers.
Here is another example of a moment in which the left is inciting violence, despite constantly accusing Trump and his supporters of doing so.
Two children were just seriously injured by these supposedly “peaceful” protests.
The hypocrisy is astounding.
