The Dakota Access pipeline already had its first leak – 84 gallons of oil – at a pump station in South Dakota in early April, sparking outrage and calling into question its environmental safety.

[...] The report of the spill can be found on the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources website. The agency apparently did not make any official announcement on the incident as it was relatively minor and had no environmental impact, according to Brian Walsh, a scientist with the department, as cited by the Guardian. The site "was cleaned up right away," the official added as quoted by ABC news.

The spill occurred less than 110 miles from Lake Oahe, which supplies Sioux tribes with water.

    It and its residents has the right to protest for any reason even if the pipeline owners are legally complying with all law and regulation.

    Tell that to all the Native Americans that were drug out of the protest and arrested. I live in Sioux Falls South Dakota, I witnessed this happening. You are one of them. I don't need a pair of patented Hoffman lenses to see you.

    The right to protest doesn't give you the right to trespass.

    I live in Sioux Falls South Dakota, I witnessed this happening.

    So what? I witnessed it happening on YouTube. Witnessing something doesn't make it right.

    You are one of them. I don't need a pair of patented Hoffman lenses to see you.

    So you're now partitioning the world into those who agree with you and the enemy. Strong indication that you are wrong.
