Pepper Spray

People are telling Autumn Two Bulls, the mother of the child who was pepper sprayed, that she shouldn't have brought her child to the protest. That she should have left her child at home where he would have been safe. Tillicum Wawa would like to point out that the child is not safe anywhere. Cops are known around the world to break into peoples homes without pretense and kill them. The child is not safe from the effects of alcohol on the Rez. Children are not safe anywhere as long as towns like White Clay are allowed to exist.
