Dakota Excess Pipeline? Standing Rock Protectors Strip-Searched, Jailed for Days on Minor Charges - Video, Links, and Commentary

It seems the more that we hear the firsthand accounts of the Standing Rock Sioux fighting for clean water for both themselves and a large portion of the American population, the more we learn about the true nature of the acting law enforcement on the scene.



From multiple firsthand accounts we hear of these officers going outside of necessity, outside of decency, and even going outside of the law for the sake of the pipeline project which according to the National Lawyers Guild, has no basis in constitutional law. These acting officers carry heavy artillery and use excessive force in order to face peaceful and unarmed Natives defending their own land.

As this ordeal has progressed, it has gradually revealed itself to be the typical situation of official corruption where police abandon the American Constitution for the sake of corporate interests. According to multiple victims, these officers have no issue abusing these people for nothing more than their own amusement. These along with multiple other instances of abusive and violent law enforcement reveal that at times, not even hate crimes are considered illegal when they are committed by those in uniform.



Personally, if I were a police officer in this country, and I had to wear the same uniform as those who freely committed crimes in plain sight like so many American police have become known to do, I would be ashamed. My shame would stem from swearing an oath to protect and serve, and then remaining silent when others who took that same oath treated that oath like a joke. If I were one of these officers at Standing Rock, I would be ashamed because I would realize that my duty included defending the innocent, and that due to my own failure I let the innocent down for the sake of the corrupted banks and the crooked officers standing next to me.

I realize that when it comes to doing the right thing, there is risk and uncertainty. The officer who has the ability to tell the difference between duty and fraternal expectation to conform may still have hope. However, those who perpetrate and enable criminal behavior among their own ranks have already lost their honor, as well as the respect of others. When the time comes, those who could not see this difference may be punished along with the corrupt.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
