Sheriff Removes Deputies Who Were Sent to Police Dakota Access Pipeline Resistance

HeadlineOct 14, 2016

Meanwhile, the sheriff of Dane County, Wisconsin, has pulled his deputies out of North Dakota, after they were dispatched there one week ago at the request of the Morton County Sheriff’s Office in order to police the ongoing resistance to the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney said he pulled his deputies out of North Dakota because “A wide cross-section of the community … all share the opinion that our deputies should not be involved in this situation.” This comes after the Morton County Sheriff’s Department requested hundreds of out-of-state deputies come to North Dakota.
