That Big Oil is getting away with this, mainly because of the sheer monetary influence it has over our government, is the primary reason why this year I'm voting against free market capitalism. Noted. signed.

This is a first, I was not able to sign this but did send my own letter. I don't know what the problem was with Sierra Club's petition on this end - others seem to have signed.

Thank you for standing up to TransCanada's aggressive tactics in Texas. In the end, violence never wins, and by taking this action, you've helped show Big Oil that there are more of us than there are of them

And once this pipe line is built and transporting the dirty tar sands to the Gulf Coast where it can be refined and exported, what then? We live with the pollution and some greedy corporate elites reap the profits. Some of these refineries are in Foriegn Trade Zones where the oil can be exported to international buyers without paying any taxes to the U.S. Greed, greed, greed at the expense of the environment, once again!

The police should be ashamed of themselves. They are civil servants who work for the public sector and are union members. So WHY are they defending corporate criminals like Big Oil --and using such unnecessarily cruel tactics? On behalf of another country, no less? There's a whole lot more going on here than we know.

Gladly signed and noted!

"It is being reported that while protesting the construction of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, two U.S. citizens were subject to Tasers, pepper spray, and prolonged stress positions by the Wood County, Texas, sheriff's office with TransCanada personnel on hand.
We object in the most strenuous terms to this brutal treatment of peaceful protesters trying to protect their land and families from a dangerous and unnecessary project."

I can't help wondering if these were Native Americans "protecting their land and families", or members of other Ethnic groups, such as Latinos. That would explain a lot. Police, in Texas as elsewhere, often use different tactics, depending on which group is their target. They DO "racially profile".
CITIZENS ARE CITIZENS, no matter WHAT their Ethnicity, Heritage or Skin Color!!!

So definitely signed & posted to Twitter! Thanks my buddy for posting.
Big oil companies are fighting a losing battle - police or no police - eventually they'll all be out of business! Can't wait for that to happen!
