Climate Terrorists Convicted in ND for Damaging Keystone Pipe

Finally, some justice against law-breaking eco-terrorists. You may recall in October 2016, eco-terrorists were arrested when they cut padlocks and chains at five remote flow stations (four different states) and shut down five oil pipelines coming from Canada into the United States (see Climate Radicals Turn Terrorist, Shut Down 5 Canada-to-US Oil Pipes). Two of them shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline, part of which was up and running at that time. The two who shut down Dakota Access were convicted by a jury last Friday–found guilty of their crimes. One of them faces 11 years in prison, and the other 21 years. It’s about time! Why do we care what happened to a couple of loser eco-terrorists in North Dakota? Because some of their members promised to target the Marcellus/Utica region next (see Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters Turn Violent; Coming Here Next?). If people are actually held accountable for their criminal actions, maybe they’ll think twice before doing it elsewhere…
