Activists confess to sabotaging, delaying the Dakota Access Pipeline ^ | 8/7/2017 | John Sexton

I missed this when it was announced roughly two weeks ago but it’s worth pointing out even now. Two activists confessed to multiple acts of sabotage against the Dakota Access Pipeline using cutting torches and other tools. The two women, who are part of an Iowa’s Catholic Worker social justice movement, made the announcement before a small group of journalists and then started prying letters off a sign for the Iowa Utilities Board, which got them arrested. From the Des Moines Register:

Where is the line to be drawn?

What I’m trying to say is, while these people can protest and make speeches and all that about global warming and their opinion that pipelines are bad news, what gives them any right to destroy private property??

Are these the same lovers of mother Earth, who left behind mountains of waste and garbage at the camp set up to protest this pipeline???

They just need to bill them for the damage, and sue them for the damage. It wouldn’t be surprising if the damages are more than they make in a decade. If they are members of a group, use RICO to go after the group.

So, if you disagree with someone, you break their stuff?

Seems kind of childish.

Too bad they didn’t cut into a live gas pipeline.

I say let's play by their rules...let the pipeline company drive a bulldozer through their homes.

Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!

CW's aren't funded or directed by the Vatican---

although I suppose if they got killed sabotaging a pipeline, Pope Francis would invent a new category for canonization.
