  1. I really like this article, but there is one correction. They did not mock charge the police at standing rock. They were doing a ceremony with the horses and informed the troops ahead of time and asked for space. The police ignored them and when they got scarred they claimed they were charged at. This movement is taking incredible pains to show no signs of violence. No guns or alcohol allowed at the camp. Cussing is not allowed at the lines when engaging with the construction workers. They are protectors and are incredibly disciplined, they would never try to scare the police with a mock charge.
