(Counter Current News) Doctors Warn Police Are Going To Start Killing People At Standing Rock :
Deaths – avoidable deaths – are being predicted at Standing Rock…
The Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council released this statement:
“The physicians and tribal healers with the Standing Rock Medic and Healer Council call for the immediatecessation of use of water cannons on people who are outdoors in 28°F/-2.2°C ambient weather with no means of active rewarming in these conditions. As medical professionals, we are concerned for the real risk of loss of life due to severe hypothermia under these conditions.”
Not to mention continuous mass tear gas, rubber bullets, as well as stinger grenades and LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) for 3 hours.
Law enforcement also shot down three media drones and targeted journalists with less lethal rounds.
National Lawyers Guild legal observers on the frontlines have confirmed that multiple people were unconscious and bleeding after being shot in the head with rubber bullets. One elder went into cardiac arrest at the frontlinesbut medics administered CPR and were able to resuscitate him. The camp’s medical staff and facilities are overwhelmed and the local community of Cannonball has opened their school gymnasium for emergency relief.
What “law enforcement” is doing at Standing Rock is appalling and criminal.
