Rubber Bullet Hits Reporter at Dakota Access Pipeline Protest [VIDEO]
While interviewing a protester at the Dakota Access Pipeline Protest, a reporter claims she was struck by a rubber bullet. Police say they were using non-lethal ammunition.
Reporter Erin Schrode comments on her facebook page about the incident Wednesday November 2nd:
I was standing innocently onshore, not making any aggressive gestures, never exchanging a single word with the police who fired at my lower back from their boat. Peaceful souls were seeking to cross the river to hold a prayer circle on Army Corps public land, but halted by over one hundred hostile military police armed with and deploying tear gas, pepper spray, batons, and rubber bullets.
Schrode also says that despite the shock and physical pain, she wants to focus to remain on the protesters and their concerns regarding the Dakota Access Pipeline.
