12 people hospitalized, another 200 injured as North Dakota police use water cannons, rubber bullets on #NoDAPL supporters

Do any of you see fires on the bridge? Neither do I. Not even where the water cannon is spraying. Given how they have lied about the demonstrations being riots, I don’t give much credibility to the claim they were putting out fires. Especially since someone intentionally set a fire near Oceti Sackowin camp and the police, who were constantly patrolling the area, suddenly became scarce and would not allow the BIA fire dept to put out the fire.
