The Irony Of Amy Goodman's Arrest Warrant

As you may have heard, North Dakota wants to arrest journalist Amy Goodman:

On September 3rd, Journalist Amy Goodman of Democracy Now! filmed security guards attacking Native American protesters with dogs and pepper spray. The footage was widely covered, garnering significant negative press for the Dakota Access Pipeline company. Now, an arrest warrant has been issued for Goodman, charging her with criminal trespassing, a misdemeanor offense.

The State of North Dakota exists, in part, because George Armstrong Custer led an expedition into the Black Hills - which REALLY was an act of criminal trespass.

Legally and morally, that land should belong to the Indian tribes who inhabit it. It is the Dakota Access Pipeline company and their hired goons who ought to be arrested for criminal trespass, for assault with deadly weapons, for destruction of sacred burial grounds, and for threatening the health and welfare of the tribes.
