Letter: Peaceful protesters are abused in America, too

Peaceful protesters are abused in America, too

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., was quick to point out Russia’s rough treatment of protesters on March 26 and said the following:

“The United States government cannot be silent about Russia’s crackdown on peaceful protesters. Free speech is what we’re all about, and Americans expect our leaders to call out thugs who trample the basic human rights of speech, press, assembly and protest.”

Where was he when the Indian protesters at Standing Rock were getting gassed, maced, strip searched, attacked by dogs and shot with rubber bullets?
