“When I say we felt abandoned by the Federal government that’s not some dramatic statement I’m making,” said Sheriff Laney. “We were abandoned by the Federal government and we weren’t asking them to take a stance on pro-pipeline or anti-pipeline we were asking them for help to save lives, protect people and enforce rule of law.”
