I found this update: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/01/18/national-guard-pulls-missile-launchers-away-from-standing-rock-protesters.html I recall some decades ago that the military sold off old equipment which militiarized local police. But, the State of North Dakota is getting a LOT OF MONEY FROM OIL in taxes or severance … I forget how much but it is enormous per year and the state has a low population. So, they have a lot of money to buy a lot of equipment to protect that oil industry.
