See for yourself a glimpse of police brutality at Standing Rock.

Law enforcement at the Standing Rock Sioux encampment blasted 400 Dakota Access protesters with tear gas, rubber bullets, and water cannons Sunday night as temperatures dipped below freezing. At least 167 protesters were injured, and some were left unconscious or bleeding. Nexus Media was there to capture the aftermath.
