Wisconsin officers go to North Dakota to help with protests

Posted: Updated:

As protests continue over the Dakota Access Pipeline, officers need extra help dealing with demonstrators.

Officers in Wisconsin have been sent to North Dakota to help with the protests there. Before receiving any help, North Dakota officers were standing a post for nearly two months.

"They're tired, they're stressed, and we've seen incidents all around this country where law enforcement officers in highly stressed situations have done things that in hindsight should not have been done," a county sheriff in Wisconsin said.

More than 100 people have been arrested since August for protesting.
