Security Contractor Pulls Rifle as Protesters Surround Him With Knives

Written by eaglerising

This video is of Kyle Thompson, a security contractor who was simply trying to take photos of pipeline equipment that had been damaged near Standing Rock, North Dakota.

As you can see, he pulls a gun when protesters begun to swarm him, some of whom were armed with knives.

The scene almost looks like one from the Walking Dead.

Thompson did not fire his gun, and he won’t be facing charges, because authorities determined he “acted in self-defense after his truck was run off of the road and set on fire.”

Protesters have occupied the area in opposition against an oil pipeline being built near what is being deemed as historical and sacred land of Native Americans.
