A journalist at Standing Rock was shot by police for no reason—and caught the awful moment on video

As peaceful protests over the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline again turn violent, one journalist near the Standing Rock Sioux Indian reservation in North Dakota captured shocking video showing herself being shot by police out of nowhere as she conducted an interview.

Erin Schrode, an activist and journalist, was doing an interview at the edge of the Cantapeta Creek when police shot her with a rubber bullet. In her video of the incident, Schrode can be heard screaming, “Ow!” before crumbling to the ground.

In a Facebook post, Schrode, who has written for Fusion in the past, said she was badly shaken after “militarized police” shot her at “point-blank range.”

Speaking to me on Thursday, Schrode said that, when she was shot, she couldn’t fully comprehend what had just happened but just remembered being in “excruciating pain.”

“I couldn’t fathom that I’d just been hit. Why would they target me? Why would they shoot anyone?” she said. “There was absolutely nothing violent, aggressive, provocative going on at the protests yesterday.”





Seriously, no reason for this.

1. why shot?

 

generations long hate of others(Native-americans) and the building, growing fascist state and the fact she is a reporter trying to get truth out. They are known, I'm sure, with informants everywhere in the crowd.

2. They probably identified her as a "dayum librul" journalist.




That would have been enough to get her shot with a rubber bullet.

4. Shot for doing journalism. Lawsuit! Make them pay millions, punish them where it hurts.

5. Not surprised they are pulling all kinds of crap on the protesters who are simply

---Many of whom are just kids---trying to save their water supply. They are being very careful to keep it non-violent as well so shit like this doesn't happen. Thank God they are filming everyone and everything possible

6. That's what the right wingers say

the Bundy boys in Oregon were heavily armed and no one in the Obama administration wanted another Waco or Ruby Ridge.

Even the right wing couple who shot the cops in Las Vegas claimed that they prefer armed violent confrontations because they saw the peaceful occupy wall street kids getting beaten up.

They don't want journalists to share what's happening.
