Police Arrested Protesters at the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock

Police Arrested Protesters at the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock

Most of the protesters marched out of the area ahead of the 2 p.m. Wednesday deadline imposed by the Army Corps of Engineers.

"I am very happy to say that we finally introduced rule of law in the Oceti camp", said Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier.

Protesters and law enforcement have clashed multiple times and hundreds have been arrested since demonstrations began in August.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem said he already has the authority to deputize agents from certain federal agencies, but the Senate bill would expand that to agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives as well as the Department of Homeland Security.

"They are removing indigenous people from indigenous land. They do not have the right to be here", said Higgins, who did not answer his phone after authorities cleared the camp.

Warmer-than-expected temperatures have hastened the snowmelt and threatened to wash the debris into the Cannonball and Missouri rivers.

American Indian activist Chase Iron Eyes, an outspoken supporter of the camp, said its shutdown is not the end of the fight against the pipeline.

"We're really fighting the clock", he said.

She did, however, say that she wanted to go home first to say goodbye to her family and prepare her things for detention. She also acknowledged her supporters and alluded to recent events wherein detainees had been killed while behind bars.

Lt Tom Iverson said police would not enter the camp on Wednesday night. "If there are a lot of communities like Durango doing the same thing - demonstrating - we create a bigger voice".

"We can defeat the black snake", he said, referencing the nickname for the pipeline that many use at Standing Rock.

"This isn't just high school kids picking up garbage in a ditch along teh road", Gov. Doug Burgum told reporters at a Mandan news conference.

Afterward, officers showed visible relief, smiling, shaking hands and patting one another on the back. A protester in another video claimed law enforcement had technology that could block Facebook Live feeds so that video of the actual raid doesn't reach the internet. He compared the camp where tents had been set up and wooden structures built to something between a landfill and a junkyard.

Homicide victim recorded, photographed suspect on cellphone
Slocum told reporters that evidence indicated that the deaths were a double homicide, and the case was being investigated as such. The link of the audio of a suspect's voice saying " down the hill " is available for download at www.in.gov/isp/delphi.htm .

Several hours after the deadline, Burgum estimated that between 25 and 50 people remained in the camp. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has opposed the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline since it was first proposed in 2014. But the status of those camps is unclear.

North Dakota National Guard spokesperson Amber Balken told BuzzFeed News that 130 guardsmen remained in active duty at the site.

Authorities are bringing in buses to take protesters to Bismarck, where they will be offered assistance including water and snacks, a change of clothing, bus fare home, and food and hotel vouchers. However, after only nine people used the center on Wednesday, it was closed today due to lack of use, according to state Emergency Services spokeswoman Cecily Fong.

Boasberg has scheduled a hearing Tuesday on a request from the Cheyenne River tribes to issue an injunction stopping the pipeline work.

Drug OD deaths almost tripled since 1999, CDC says
Overdose deaths in the United States almost tripled from 1990 to 2015, according to new figures released Friday by the U.S. The majority of the deaths are attributed to opioids - heroin and prescription painkillers such as Oxycontin and Vicodin.

Kelcy Warren, the CEO of Energy Transfer Partners, the Texas-based developer behind the project, has said that "concerns about the pipeline's impact on local water supply are unfounded" and "multiple archaeological studies conducted with state historic preservation offices found no sacred items along the route".
