INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THIS REPORT IS PROPRIETARY AND SENSITIVE DO NOT RELEASE OUTSIDE OF AUTHORIZED AND APPROVED RECIPIENTS iii. iv. TigerSwan location correlates with ISR conducted by TS Iowa last week. The email describes an Inauguration Ceremony with guest of honor (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe) on 26Feb17. Also, there will be speakers from Oceti Sakowin, Indigenous Iowa, and Meskwaki Tribe. The motives of the camp is to create a “think-tank” of environmentally progressive activists under the guise of the native desire to decolonize. This camp may serve as a hub or training camp which would affect all Energy Projects across the nation. The event will be video captured by Fusion (TV news) and Kiowa filmmaker, for documentary purposes and future reporting. b. Dave Whiting, the graphics/PR face behind the Mni Wiconi Fundraiser has a GoFundMe account for the “production cost” for the event tonight in Wildwood Saloon, Iowa City. Dave has direct ties to Christine Nobiss (founder of Indigenous Iowa and EMECC and Jason Livingston. https://www.gofundme.com/mni-wiconi-benefit-production-costs c. Rob Webber has created a film that is titled “The War of North Dakota” and is suggesting that the “one-sided” ND LE/Government’s military style gear and weapons has caused PTSD(Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) to the protestors. The claim of PTSD suggests protestors have and/or will file lawsuits against any entities in association with the construction or supporting elements for the DAPL. https://www.facebook.com/rod.webber.50/videos/10158233663555123/ d. If someone’s recklessness or negligence caused PTSD, the focus in the lawsuit will be on expert testimony. To establish PTSD, an attorney may invite an expert witness, likely a psychiatrist, to testify about and convince the court injury, causation, and/or recoverable damages. The challenge in a PTSD lawsuit comes from the "battle of experts." Opposing experts will likely argue that PTSD can only be triggered by some enormous traumatic events related to wars and natural disasters. The jury will have to decide if plaintiff’s PTSD claims are genuine. http://www.legalmatch.com/law-library/article/how-to-sue-for-post-traumaticstress-disorder.html Past 24 Hours a.
