Mandan, N. Dakota - On Sunday, the Morton County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) reported that a drone got to close to a police surveillance helicopter and the pilot and an officer "feared for their life" and they fired upon the unmanned drone and was forced to land. But apparently, video posted on Facebook (FB) by Prolific The Rapper, it shows several ground law enforcement officers targeting the drone and discharged their weapons at it.
Prolific posted on his FB account, "Video Evidence Of Shots Fired at Native Media Drones. You can see officers discharging their firearms at the end of the video. #NoDAPL
Please contact Morton County Sheriffs office and ask them to cease and desist aggressive actions against independent media and people gathered in prayer to protect their waters. Dr0ne2bwild Photography & Video #MniWiconi"
The MCSO in a press release stated, Authorities report two documented cases where an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) flew at a helicopter in a threatening manner.  The helicopter was assisting in surveillance in the vicinity of Highway 1806 during an active protest situation Sunday morning. A sheriff on board the helicopter reported to law enforcement on the ground that the helicopter pilot and passengers were "in fear of their lives", and that the "drone came after us."  
Around 11:00 a.m., the drone was flying directly above officers, in violation of FAA rules.  Law enforcement used less-than-lethal ammunition to fire on and damage the UAS, which was then landed by the drone operator.
Two drone operators have previously been charged for crimes involving illegal use of unmanned aircraft systems during the on-going protest situation. Myron Dewey was charged with stalking and Aaron Turgeon was charged with two counts of reckless endangerment, one being a C Felony for flying an UAS at a North Dakota Highway Patrol plane.
Authorities are currently monitoring protest activity north of the camp, near Highway 1806. Due to the traffic hazard the public, highway 1806 has been closed due. As of this morning, 200 protesters and 8 horses had cut fence and entered private property east of 1806. This is private property that is a DAPL construction site. DAPL employees are working along the pipeline route today, according to the MVSO press release.
Dewey, a journalist used his media drone to video record Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) private security harassing water protectors. Dewey was subject to an illegal field stop, search and seizure of a drone without a warrant. A MCSO deputy was live video recorded on FB by Dewey admitting that a warrant would be issued at a later date for his arrest. Dewey turned himself to the MCSO, was processed and posted a $350 bail bond.
Dewey's case is one of multiple instances where rouge MCSO deputies illegally stop and conduct illegal acts against members of the Native American media and no White DAPL security guard has ever been charged for criminal acts against the water protectors, which most are Native Americans.
Dewey posted on his FB account, "Oceti Sakowin has claimed eminent domain over traditional lands, "broken treaty lands" from Energy Transfer company, "Dakota Access pipeline company".
Digital Smome Signals media tent is erected to report news from front lines.
The lands have now been blessed correctly by the original caretakers of the land.
The sacred fire has been lit of the 7 councils!!!
It is an honor to witness..."
The Sacred Stone Camp released the following statement, "This morning, at approximately 8am central, water protectors took back unceded territory affirmed in the 1851 Treaty of Ft. Laramie as sovereign land under the control of the Oceti Sakowin, erecting a frontline camp of several structures and tipis on Dakota Access property, just east of ND state highway 1806. This new established camp is 2.5 miles north of the Cannon Ball River, directly on the proposed path of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). This site is directly across the road from where DAPL security dogs attacked water protectors on September 3rd...Meanwhile, DAPL is still trying to dig, heading towards this new frontline camp. This is real.
We are done with being reactionary. We are asserting our rights as Indigenous peoples! This remains a non-violent direct action committed to peaceful civil disobedience."
On Saturday, at least 83 water protectors (protesters) were arrested and booked for criminal trespassing, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, fleeing from amln officer, engaging in a riot and several were charged with felony endangerment for attaching themselves to DAPL equipment and vehicles, according to N. Dakota Highway Patrol Captain Bryan Niewind. Captain Niewind as Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney, Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier and Morton County State Attorney Ladd Erickson believe that under the N. Dakota state criminal law, if more than five persons engage in a peaceful traditional Native American prayer ceremony near or at a #NoDAPL construction site, it is a riot.
The state criminal riot law specifically cites that a person or persons have to engage in "tumultuous and violent conduct creates grave danger of damage or injury to property or persons or substantially obstructs law enforcement or other government function" as stipulated under the N. Dakota criminal code. Peacefully engaging in a Native American prayer ceremony and being unarmed at #NoDAPL site, which many live streaming videos posted on FB by water protectors is not a riot, but videos have shown that the police actually have harassed, intimidated and engaged in a riot themselves to provoke water protectors who remained peaceful.
The ACLU-ND has filed an open records requests with the N. Dakota State Highway Patrol and the MCSO to look into alleged illegal acts by law enforcement against Native Americans who are protesting DAPL's desecration of sacred burial sites along its route.
MCSO continues to use drones to illegally spy on six Native American camps, but law enforcement don't allow media to record their actions in public by drones on the ground.
Also authorities continue to arrest journalists at #NoDAPL sites and have charged them with criminal trespassing as an attempt to deter other journalists from covering the abuse and illegal acts against Native Americans and the local Native indigenous media. Amy Goodman, a journalist from Democray Now was facing criminal trespassing, which was dropped and later charged for rioting, but the charge was dismissed as well. Erickson failed to prosecute Goodman for exposing an all White DAPL security team using vicious dogs to attack and bite water protectors and a child. The commercialized mainstream reported the vicious dog attack and to date, none of the DAPL security guards have been charged with a crime indicating alleged corruption by the Morton County Sheriff's Office, N. Dakota State Highway Patrol and Morton County State Attorney Erickson who have been bought off by DAPL, according to water protectors.

Black Snake Ready To Cross Hwy 1806 To Destroy Native American Sacred Sites #NoDAPL Ground Zero

At least 83 water protectors arrested by law enforcement officers and the Morton County Sheriff's deputies in a riot deployment, some people were maced and injured in the police assault of unarmed peaceful protesters.

October 22, 2016

Mandan, N. Dakota - The Morton County Sheriff's Office reported that at least 300 protesters (water protectors) had marched 3 miles West of Highway 1806 near a Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) construction site. An estimated 83 water protectors have been taken into custody and some were maced and others reported injured, according to Mryon Dewey, a journalist from Digital Smoke Signals media. Another journalist, Sara Lafleur-Vetter was also taken into custody at the scene. Some of those arrested were transported to multiple sheriff county jails in near by areas due to overflow of arrests in Morton County.
The police and MCSO deputies surrounded the water protectors and didn't allow them to leave the area when they pleaded with police that they would voluntarily leave. Some of the water protecters escaped across a river to safety.
Leaders of the Sacred Stone Camp have confirmed that DAPL (Black Snake) is getting ready to cross Highway 1806 into sacred land and burial sites, which would destroy Standing Rock Sioux Tribe historical sites and burial grounds. So far, 380 sacred sites have been destroyed, according to the #NoDAPL movement leaders. A plead has been made for all tribes and allies to converge into the area within the next several days to help stop the desecration of the sacred sites (Ground Zero).
The MCSO reported that the water protectors and journalist arrested will be charged with criminal trespassing and rioting. But, live videos recorded and posted on Facebook by water protectors show that the only rioters were the police who launched an assault on the unarmed water protectors.
DAPL construction has been taking place at night to gain ground.
Several weeks ago, a N. Dakota congressional delegation send a letter to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Department of Interior and the Corps of Engineers requesting additional resources and support for law enforcement efforts in Morton County to deal with the ongoing DAPL protests. According to the delegation, the projected cost for the state in dealing with the DAPL protests and demonstrations is estimated at $1M per week.
But, most likely any federal resources allocated to the State of N. Dakota geared for Morton County will only continue to fund illegal acts committed by assisting law enforcement officers, state patrol and MCSO deputies. The feds should certainly review and question any unlawful practices and policies violating the rights of people protesting at DAPL sites before approving a request by the state.
DAPL is not a public utility company, but a private corporation for profit and the use of eminent domain to allow pipeline construction on private land and Indian reservations is not legal and nor protected under federal, state laws including local ordinances, according to federal court rulings.

Heaggan-Brown, 24, a Milwaukee Police Officer was charged with two felony counts for 2nd-degree sexual assault of intoxicated victim, 2nd-degree sexual assault of unconscious victim, on felony count for capture an intimate representation and two misdemeanor counts for prostitution-none maritial intercourse for the August 15 sexual assault of a male victim. If convicted of all counts, Heaggan-Brown is facing up to 40 years in prison for each count of sexual assault and up to $100,000 in fines for each count, 3 years and 6 months in prison and up to $10,000 in fines for one count of capture an intimate representation, and 9 months in prison and $10,000 in fines for each count of prostitution.
Officer Heaggan-Brown was taken into custody on Thursday by police and was booked at the Milwaukee County jail, which a hold has been placed preventing bail release.
The Milwaukee Police Department has suspended Officer Heaggan-Brown with pay pending the outcome of the case. Officer Heaggan-Brown was first identified by Hispanic News Network U.S.A. as the officer who fatally shot Sylville Smith, 23, in the Sherman Park neighborhood at N. 4th Street and W. Auer Ave. on August 13 and an unrest followed for weeks. 28 people were arrested and charged with various crimes resulting from the Sherman Park unrest after Smith was murdered by Officer Heaggan-Brown.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice concluded its investigation and the Smith death investigation results have been turned over to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office for review and to determine, if the homicide of Smith by Officer Heaggan-Brown was justified. 
The Milwaukee Police Department has not released the body camera videos showing Officer Heaggan-Brown fatally shoot Smith, which had raised concerns and allegations of the lack of transparency by the police department. According to the criminal complaint against Officer Heaggan-Brown, the off-duty officer sexually assaulted the male victim several days after killing Smith while on duty.
Police found explicit nude photos of the male victim in Officer Heaggan-Brown's cellphone, which the victim denied giving any consent for the photos or engaging in sex. The victim didn't know that the Officer took photos while he was unconscious at the time of the sexual assault. They also found cellphone texts messages soliciting several males for prostitution as well as another alleged second sexual assault from last July, according to the criminal complaint.
Officer Heaggan-Brown is also a singer and composer who video recorded a song and was posted on YouTube about doing drugs, shooting people, igniting a riot like Baltimore and weapons.

Irish Filmmaker Phelim McAleer Caught Filming Native American Children And Sacred Fire When Prohibited

An Irish documentary filmmaking group claims to have been harassed at Sacred Stone Camp, but members of the camp say, they were caught filming children and the sacred fire when prohibited as a protocol for media.

October 19, 2016

Cannon Ball, N. Dakota - On Tuesday, Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier confirmed that Phelim McAleer, 49, an Irish filmmaker and his crew were harassed and threatened at the Sacred Stone Camp (SSC) located inside the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe reservation and has filed a complaint. Sheriff Kirchmeier in a news conference says, that "protesters exhibit escalated violent behavior as journalists threatened," a video released to officers shows "a threatening and terrifying situation for the three journalists" when a camp security tried to take a vedeo microphone from McAleer. McAleer and his crew were covering a protest activity on Monday were invited to the SSC to interview those involved on Tuesday, when they were attacked by members of the SSC and prevented them from leaving the camp, according to McAleer.
During a presentation of a video, it showed Magdalena Segieda, a female McAleer crew member calling 911 and telling to operator that she was scared and fearful while the vehicle was shaken by those outside, but no violent behavior than shaking the vehicle is shown from those outside and another part of the video shows a SSC security attempting to take a microphone away from McAleer.
Apparently, McAleer claims that he and his 2 member crew were threatened and harassed by some members of the SSC when they began to ask questions not favorable to those being interviewed. An investigating police lieutenant assisting the Morton County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) who responded to the scene confirmed at the press conference that Segieda did say that she had film that the members of the SSC didn't want them to have, which includes the unauthorized filming of Native American children and the sacred fire that was prohibited by the camp media protocol policy provided to all media visting the camp.
The police lieutenant did say that they also received a 911 call from the SSC camp as well about McAleer and his crew.
A YouTube video post called "Prelim McAleer is not a Journalist" in April 2016, exposes McAleer as pro-oil and alleged that victims of oil contamination are just out to get money from oil companies.
McAleer had registered as a journalist and even showed a credential at the media tent and was given information about the protocol for media members and certain restrictions as well, according to Cynthia Baumann, from the SSC media tent.
Baumann who registered McAleer as a journalist visiting SSC posted the following statement on Facebook, "It has come to our attention that the agitator and agenda propagandist Phelim McAleer who claims that his "30 minutes of terror" was unprovoked, is currently holding a press conference with Morton County Sheriff's Department. Here are a couple facts about the situation with Mr. McAleer visiting the community.
1) Phelim McAleer was checked into the media tent, he was read exactly all the rules one by one. I would know, because I was the one who check him in.
2) Later McAleer was caught committing various violations of the rules that were explained to him
- Documenting children without permission from a parent of guardian
- Documenting the sacred fire that was explained as off limits
-Asking community members questions meant to offend.
Once Mr. McAleer was confronted about his violation of the rules, Phelim McAleer stated that he did not have a press pass, and did not need one. This is a lie, as I personally checked him in. It is our belief that he was lying to force a confrontation between himself and the security set in place to protect the safety of the community. When pulling out, Mr. McAleer hit a community member with his vehicle, the person which has personally explained to me. We believe this may have been documented, and if so, we will contact legal about the situation. Mr. McAleer, I suggest you not leave the state so soon.
We also have video footage of Mr. McAleer being escorted out of Prairie Knights casino by local law enforcement after I was able to hear him being removed from the hotel. McAleer was screaming at residents and guests of the hotel.
We will be compiling our video evidence of McAleers actions, along with phrases such as "You are just stupid f$**#ing Indians" while at camp trying to provoke an issue, and respond once everything is compiled and organized.
Once again, here is an act of Morton County Sheriffs using false propaganda to push their agenda of working as direct security for Dakota Access Pipeline.
Remember, this man is an established liar, therefore anything he says at press conferences or anywhere else must be considered suspect."
Sheriff Kirchmeier says, that an investigation is ongoing to determine, if charges against the SSC security guard will be charged in the incident. Myron Dewey, a journalist with the #NoDAPL movement posted in a video that McAleer was a children predator just like MCSO Deputy Jonathan Moll who also was caught taking photos of students. Dewey says, that McAleer was told not to film children at the SSC without authorization and if McAleer would publish such video and photos that SSC will file a lawsuit for taking unauthorized video.
Sheriff Kirchmeier failed to mention at the press conference that according to the SSC, McAleer was not following media protocol and took unauthorized video footage at the camp and attempts were made to take the footage.

Donnell Preskey, spokeswoman for the MCSO released the follwing press release, Two journalists – a male and female from CA along with a videographer from Bismarck, ND arrived to the area 10/17
They followed the protests on 10/17 with no issues.
They were invited to come to the camp on 10/18.
The male reporter was interviewing campers when a person got upset by the line of questioning and tried to grab the journalists microphone.
There was an altercation between the protesters at the camp and the journalists.
Those identified as camp security told the journalists they had to leave but couldn't until they turned over their footage.
The journalists were able to get into their vehicle and locked it. It was then surrounded by protesters who pounded on the vehicle and rocked it and continued to threaten them unless they turned over the video.
Vehicles from the protest camp even blocked in the journalists vehicle preventing them from being able to drive away.
The three victims called 9-1-1 for help.
Eventually, they were able to drive to the gate at the camp entrance – although the gate was closed and blocked by a vehicle. It wasn't until officers arrived that camp security cooperated and allowed the journalists to leave.
They were brought to the Morton County Sheriff's department and interviewed. They told the officer they were "scared for their life."
Another press release by the MCSO stated, the male reporter was interviewing a group of individuals at the camp. It is apparent by watching the video of the interview that the individuals got offended by a line of questioning. One individual who identified himself as camp security tried to grab the reporter's microphone and dragged the reporter who would not let go of his equipment.
"The journalists made their way back to the vehicle. However, protesters blocked them in by surrounding their vehicle with people and vehicles. Individuals are seen pounding on the journalist's vehicles and rocking it," said Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier. "Protesters demanded the journalists turn over their video footage. Numerous times the journalists pleaded with protesters to "let them leave."
The journalists called 9-1-1 for help, during the call you can hear the frantic plea for help. The journalists told our Morton County investigators they were, "scared for their life."
According to the interview with our investigation team, the journalists were fearful of putting their vehicle into park for fear that this would unlock their doors.  They eventually were allowed to drive toward the camp entrance. However, camp security closed the gate and blocked them from leaving.
Officers responded to the camp and using a PA asked individuals in the camp to allow the journalists leave. The officer told the media the female journalist was terrified. The journalists were escorted to the Morton County Law Enforcement Center where they were interviewed. Morton County authorities will be investigating this incident for possible charges.

Phelim McAleer released a longer video version of the incident. He asked a man what some say was an insulting question at the camp, if he was a hypocrite for using a vehicle that runs on gas and oil to transport supplies to the camp? Members of the Sacred Stone Camp say, that he was actually filming children and the sacred fire earlier which was prohibited.

Golden Globe Nominee Canadian Actor Adam Beach Stands With Standing Rock #NoDAPL

Beach is one of several movie acting celebraties who have arrived at the Sacred Stone Camp in support of the #NoDAPL movement to kill (halt) the Black Snake (Dakota Access Pipeline) construction. Robert Redford urges Americans to Stand with Standing Rock in video message.

Cannon Ball, N. Dakota - On Tuesday, Atsa E'sha Hoferer on his Facebook account posted a video of Golden Globe Nominee Canadian actor Adam Beach, 43, at the Sacred Stone Camp (STC). Beach stopped at the STC camp with his daughter in support of the #NoDAPL Native American movement to halt the crude oil pipeline construction.
Beach is a member of the Saulteaux First Nation, was born in Ashern, Manitoba and raised on the Dog Creek Reserve, according to his career and biography as an actor. He has acted in at least 60 films and TV shows, including Cowboys and Aliens with Harrison Ford.
Beach is one of several known celebrities that have stopped at Sacred Stone Camp in support of #NoDAPL. On October 10, Shailene Woodley, 24, an actress in the "Divergent" movie was arrested near St. Anthony for two misdemeanor counts, trespassing and a frivolous charge for engaging in a riot during a peaceful and Native American prayer ceremony at a DAPL protest site. Woodley will be back at a Morton County court house hearing on October 24, according to court records. 27 other water protectors (protesters) were also arrested along with Woodley.
So far, more than 140 water protectors and allies have been arrested and charged with frivolous riot (engaging/inciting a riot) crimes, by the Morton County State's Attorney.
Last Monday, a Morton County judge dismissed a frivolous criminal charge for riot against Amy Goodman, a journalist for Democracy Now. Several other water protectors had their charges for riot dismissed as well. 
Also on Monday, Myron Dewey, a journalist surrendered to the Morton County Sheriff's Office after a warrant was issued for a frivolous misdemeanor charge for stalking of DAPL security. Dewey was able to live video record on his Facebook account when he was illegally stopped in a dirt road, searched and a drone confiscated without a warrant. The MCSO deputy told Dewey that they had a warrant, but couldn't produce one for more than 14 minutes until an unidentified deputy told Dewey he was free to leave and to expect a warrant for his arrest later.
Dewey's video shows how rouge MCSO deputies and law enforcement officers assisting the MCSO have engaged in illegal acts against water protectors, targeted Native Americans and journalists.
The American Civil Liberties Union in N. Dakota (ACLU-ND) has filed an open records request with the N. Dakota State Patrol and the MCSO in their investigation into alleged illegal acts that deputies and officers have been accused of doing.
The ACLU-ND claims that the MCSO, N.D. State Patrol and their assisting law enforcement officers from other jurisdictions have and continue to conduct unlawful road blocks, drone surveillance and check points targeting #NoDAPL water protectors (Native Americans) to stop them from legally gaining public road/highway access to protest at or near DAPL sites.
Reports have surfaced that targeted Native Americans arrested and booked for minor crimes like disorderly conduct have been stripped search at the MCSO jail. Several of those arrests included Dr. Sara Jumping Eagle, a Pediatrician for the Standing Rock reservation was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and booked at the MCSO jail and stripped search and Dave Archambault II, the Chair of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe was also arrested for civil disobedience and booked at the MCSO jail and was also stripped searched, according to Goodman, a journalist from Democracy Now.
Morton County State Attorney Ladd R. Erickson, Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier and Cass County Sheriff Paul Laney, who is assisting MCSO during the DAPL protests have not released any statements about frivolous riot charges against water protectors have been dismissed. Goodman claims, they have charged journalists with the frivolous riot crimes in an attempt to suppress free of the press and people's right to know what is happening at #NoDAPL protest sites.
On Tuesday, the Redford Center released a video with Robert Redford urging Americans to call President Obama and tell him to protect clean water and to stand with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe who is fighting to stop the DAPL pipeline and to protect clean water for 17 million Americans along the Mississippi River in N. Dakota.
