Decision On DAKOTA PIPELINE could come THIS WEEK: ABC NEWS

Which way do you think it will go?   Honor the Treaties...?  Or Honor the Campaign financers?

ABC NEWS:
A decision “may occur by the end of the week,” said Department of Justice attorney Matt Marinelli on behalf of the Army Corps of Engineers. If the easement is granted, construction on the controversial oil pipeline would resume.  Once the Army Corps review process is complete, a final decision will be made and the Army Corps will notify Congress as required, according to Marinelli.
EARTH JUSTICE says WILL IMMEDIATELY APPEAL:


Jan Hasselman, an attorney with Earthjustice, who represents the Standing Rock Sioux, said the tribe will challenge the U.S. government in court if the Army grants the easement…
“Our position is the tribe’s treaty rights and the law require the full (Environmental Impact Study) process that the government initiated in December. Issuing the easement without that process will be a serious violation of the law,” Hasselman told Reuters.
DID the PROTESTERS shoot their wads?

The camp once had as many as 10,000 protesters but the harsh winter and repeated requests by the Standing Rock Sioux that protesters vacate has reduced the populations to a few hundred. As I noted Friday, 74 protesters trying to set up a new camp on land owned by the development company were arrested last week. Protest leader Chase Iron Eyes has been charged with inciting a riot, which is a felony that could result in up to 5 years in jail.

But it's OK for corrupt Tribal Councils to abuse there members and steal Millions of dollars from them and nothing is being done.
But set up a tent and get a possible 5 year prison sentence. Then be known as a felon.
What's next, put up 2 tents and get the death penalty.
WTF is wrong with this Country that we call land of the FREE.

?. If a Tribe uses an outside Financial Institution for a safe haven for their money are they still able to use Tribal laws to govern the funds or are they subject to the laws of United States and Banking
laws.
