There have been a lot of questions surrounding the influx of military

style troops and equipment to the Standing Rock Sioux tribal area in

North Dakota. In August, North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple declared a

state of emergency in response to the growing Dakota Access pipeline

protests, and Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier has invoked the

Emergency Management Assistance Compact, calling on police resources

from six surrounding states.

On Thursday, police executed a particularly violent sweep of a camp

that left structures destroyed, more than 140 people arrested, cars

impounded and others burning on the side of the road. The highly

militarized response—armored vehicles and heavy weaponry—was

recorded by many people caught in the assault.

Across the country, there have been solidarity actions to protest the

police response. When word spread that police were allegedly using

Facebook to monitor those gathered at Standing Rock, a campaign was

launched Sunday encouraging Facebook users worldwide to “check-in” at

Standing Rock and share that status publicly. The campaign seeks to

confuse police by flooding social media with check-ins from all across

the globe. According to CNN today, hundreds of thousands of people

have already done it; although the Morton County Sheriff’s Department

has denied using Facebook to monitor the camp.

The questions many are asking range from why a private pipeline

company warrants a seven-state security force paid for by you and me,

to why Obama has not stepped in.

Here is a list of officials from the involved states, plus the county

and city police confirmed by news reports, to have sent troops and

equipment to North Dakota. Questions can be directed to these people:
