Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

A Native American water protector has lost vision in one of her eyes after being brutally attacked by police officers at the #NoDAPL Standing Rock protest. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian of The Young Turks break it down. Support independent media here:

Read more here:

"Vanessa Dundon, also known as “Sioux Z,” was helping a fellow female protester when she was struck in the face with a tear gas canister. She told Salon the police targeted her intentionally.

The attack occurred on Blackwater Bridge in Standing Rock, where police were using riot control agents including mace, rubber bullets, tear gas and water cannons.

Directly after the incident, she was asked to have her picture taken. Dundon was hesitant, but soon realized how important the exposure may be to raise awareness of police brutality.

“I didn’t want the world to see me like this, I didn’t want my kids to see me like this, I didn’t want myself to see me like this,” Dundon explained. “But, I knew how important it was for the world to see this.”*

    Trump turds are ok with police brutality as long as the person isn’t white.

      So long as the person is attacking people . . . which she was.

      But why are white people always able to refrain from attacking people? So
      called self-defense is institutional racism.

    I’m a Republican. There is one thing liberals are right about and that is
    there are a lot of stupid conservatives. I just spent some time listening
    to Alex Jones and the like and reading the comments. I can’t tell if they
    are all trolls or really believe the stupid crap they say.

    That woman is a FAR better person than I am.

    I wouldn’t have been nearly as brave. And I likely wouldn’t have remained
    non violent.

    …and then the police would’ve killed me.

    Can’t believe how brave these protectors truly are

    • Posted by Zeke m, at Reply

      +manhunt48 what is your proof she was non-violent, and you cannot use the
      corrupted cops’ words

      Non-violent civil disobedience is a valid tactic, but one of the best ways
      to make it effective is with the threat of violent self-defence.

    • Posted by Titansoftime, at Reply

      +WhiskeyWhiskers Non-violent civil disobedience is exactly what this was.
      Have been following it since the beginning. Cops and Governors lie, I know
      it’s tough to swallow but it’s true.

    • Posted by WhiskeyWhiskers, at Reply

      +Titansoftime
      I’m not saying this wasn’t non-violent civil disobedience. But as a
      consequence of choosing that tactic, we have this poor girl blinded,
      another with her arm blown off and countless others injured in less
      gruesome ways.

    • Posted by Titansoftime, at Reply

      +WhiskeyWhiskers Sorry I got you confused with some moron. Yes you are 100%
      correct.

    This woman has 4 kids and she is now blind because cops shot her in the
    head with a canister, imagine if this was a white woman, this would be on
    every news station, but it’s “just” a native woman so nobody seems to care
    except TYT

      +Mr Awesome How very sexist of you,….tell me, did your father beat your
      mother often and when did you start fondling your younger sister?

    • Posted by Dallas, at Reply

      +Mr Awesome She does take care of her kids. She works on an ambulance and
      raises 4 kids at the same. Quite remarkable.

      +ThatDutchguy​
      Not really. But youre both speakin the same truth.

      +Michael Kelley​​ is obviously not racist. Hes making a joke that hints at
      a kernel of truth.

      You called him out on the double standard of making a joke based on race.
      You most likely dont truthfully worry hes racist, but rather, youre
      purposefully over dramatizing what he said because youre making a point
      that often minorities play the race card and simultaneously reminding him
      we should remove race from our commentary.

      Youre both right imo. And saying the same thing, in different languages.

    the state should pay $1,000,000 for every injury they inflicted on these
    innocent people. hopefully they’ll learn to be less violent in the future.

    • Posted by Andy Dunnock, at Reply

      +jim bob Nearly half of the (voting) population are in favour of the state
      working for the corporations at their expense. They must be happy to pay.
      When did the US care about human rights violations? It doesn’t care for its
      own citizens.

    • Posted by Andy Dunnock, at Reply

      +jim bob I do agree with you jim bob, but the companies can afford to pay,
      no lessons learned.

    • Posted by jim bob, at Reply

      +Andy Dunnock Now we are getting somewhere. Maybe both sides should agree
      only people should be held personally responsible. If states no longer paid
      fines and corporations no longer paid fines, but the people who did the
      wrong things paid the fines (and did the time), maybe less people would be
      doing wrong things because for the first time in history it would actually
      affect them personally.

      As it stands now ceo’s, police, or politicians, etc can do whatever they
      like and it never affects them personally, they still get their bonuses,
      they still have their mansions fines(and no jail time) are paid in a way
      that doesn’t affect them and encourages them to be bad..

      It’s not about learning a lesson. It’s about providing the woman with
      compensation for her pain and suffering, and because she’s now disabled.

    • Posted by Andy Dunnock, at Reply

      +Michael Reynolds Of course she should be compensated, we’re talking about
      how to prevent further violent acts by those who are paid to protect and
      serve.

  12. Posted by Dallas, at Reply

    People who are mocking this woman should take a second to note that she
    drives/drove an ambulance WHILE raising her 4 kids.

    Hope you never need medical care, but I bet she would save your sorry
    asses, regardless of whether you deserve it!

    So if it was Un-American to kneel at the flag before a football game,
    because of those who fought for the ‘countries freedom’, isn’t it
    Un-American for the corporation to take these peoples land, considering so
    many people fought for ‘the land of the free’.

    Funny when republicans bring out the patriotism and when they don’t.

    • Posted by Cynthric's Gaming Channel, at Reply

      The problem is there’s alot of braindead Republicans that have it in their
      demented heads that building new pipelines automatically means gas will be
      cheaper while they ignore the fact that the oil company already said the
      entire purpose of the pipeline is to sell oil overseas for profit and we
      won’t benefit from it in the least.

    • Posted by lime light, at Reply

      +Aaron Henderson not all of us. Black people, mexicans, and Native
      Hawaiians aren’t apart of it. Quite frankly the only people who feel
      entitled to keep taking their land and marginalizing them are the problem.

    • Posted by Aaron Henderson, at Reply

      No, that’s like watching some dude beat down an old lady, and saying, I
      wasn’t a part of it, I am not guilty. By participating, and not doing
      anything about it, you are a part of it, whether that makes you feel nice
      or not.

    • Posted by lime light, at Reply

      +Aaron Henderson so you’re saying black people who were slaves stollen from
      their own land forced to work on stollen land through rape, torture, and
      murder are just as guilty as the white people who stole the land and
      continue to steal the land and marginalize Native American people? You’re
      saying that Native Hawaiians, indigenous people who were raped, murderdd,
      and tortured who also had their land stollen are as guilty as white people
      who stole native American land and continue to do so? You’re saying
      mexicans, also indigenous people who owned the land who were raped,
      tortured, and murdered are as guilty as white people who stole the land and
      continue to do so? You’re delusional, white people are the only ones who
      benefited and continue to benefit from brutalizing non-white people. There
      is no native american, Mexican, black, or native Hawaiian person that is
      benefiting from white terrorism.
