2/23/17 (pub. 2/24/17) Yes I can confirm the veterans who were arrested for standing beside Regina were throw to the ground were they were restrained by officers who sat on them using the full weight of their bodies to press their knees into the veterans neck which forced their faces into the cold muddy water present on the ground. Objections were raised to this behavior by water protectors present and the officers ignored them. I also saw a vet who slipped on the ice while cuffed left in a puddle on the ground for a long period of time. The officers used more force then was needed and their acions seemed designed to humiliate the veterans. These actions angered the water protectors who witnessed it but they stayed in peace and prayer throughout this confrontation. – Wes Howard
